We've just passed the first official day of winter and, needless to say, sh*t is getting real. Which is exactly why I'm headed Upstate this weekend to embrace the season in its full-blown, white-washed glory. Cue, the North Hat; from Askov Finlayson (the guys who know how to keep the chill out of your bones), this winter beanie is everything. Designed in Minneapolis and made in Cloquet MN, it's simply for those of us who feel the urge to explore year round. And for each North beanie sold, a donation will be made to progress positive climate change initiatives, so you'll be doing your bit for nature and for you.
