This is without doubt the warmest beanie l have ever had on my head in still air. Kept me toasty in sub zero. I’ve recommended it and Zpacks to several friends.

When winter arrives, cold nights at camp are no match for our ultralight Brushtail Possum Beanie. Made from a combination of New Zealand's brushtail possum fur, and New Zealand Merino lamb's wool, these beanies will keep your head warm around the campfire and those frigid days on trail.

For extra warmth pair these socks with our Brushtail Possum Socks and Brushtail Possum Gloves!

For a lighter weight 3 season option, check out our Fleece Hat.

Brushtail Possum Beanies are produced by combining the fur of New Zealand's brushtail possum and New Zealand Merino lamb's wool.

The hair of brushtail possum is hollow, just like Polar Bear hair, which provides incredible warmth and water resistant.  While typical wool beanies may stay warm when wet, they take forever to dry. If you get these beanies wet, the water shakes right out and they dry quickly.

New Zealand's possums are unrelated to the opossums found in the United States. They are super cute, but they are also an invasive species that destroy the native plant and bird life.

38% Brushtail Possum Fiber

48% Merino Wool

Beanies can be hand washed in a sink with warm water and soap or in a traditional washing machine.


The beanies can be air dried, or tumble dried. They may shrink a little in a dryer, but they stretch back out without issue.
