I love this Shackleton hat. I have wanted a balaclava like this for many years now and I was thrilled to see this item on Etsy. I ordered it and it pleasantly arrived on the very first day of a blizzard. There was 20 inches of snow and sub-zero winds. This hat saw me through it all! It is warm but breathes so I was warm but not hot. The knitting in the hat is perfect and the choice of yarn is perfect for the cold. I am very happy that I have my Shackleton hat and i am sure I will wear it for decades to come! Hurray and thank you!

The Shackleton hat is SUCH a unique look - not something you see out there every day. It's very well made and the seller was prompt and a pleasure to work with. The wool used is a little on the rough side, but that's fine for a nice outdoor men's hat. Thank you!

The quality is impeccable. While I may never make it to Antarctica, I’m quite sure “The Shackleton” will hold up just as well to the bone-eating winds of our Saskatchewan winters. The perfect piece to add to my cold weather gear with just the right touch of vintage appeal. Every adventurer should have one😎🤙
