Thumbs up Sherpa Jumla Hat

Jumla Hat by Sherpa Adventure Gear link

100% Lambswool, hand-knit in Nepal. I don't know why the company insists on emphasizing that point, but there it is. When I first read the label I couldn't help but imagine these poor Nepalese women huddled in some mountain hut knitting furiously at gun-point. Knitting like their lives depended on it. And maybe there is some truth in my imaginations because the quality of this hat definitely shows.

The inside is lined with a nice, soft fleece, which kept my ears warm all day. My head felt warmly wrapped all day; snug and warm. In the evening it was pouring rain on the summit and as I made my way down, my head was not in the least bit wet. I even forgot I was wearing a hat. I quietly agreed with myself that it was the best $16 I ever spent on one.

At the end of the day, warm in the lodge, as I sipped hot cocoa I first thought to myself, "What a great day," then, "My head sure feels warm," finally, "Christ alive, what is that smell?" I smelled my pits. I sniffed at my jacket's collar. Nothing. As soon as I wasn't paying attention, though, the smell would return like a phantom hiding in my shadow.

Later, at the car, I took off my hat for the first time. One of my friends says, "It smells like wet dog or skunk! Is that you?" and I knew immediately it was the Jumla. I responded the only way I knew how, "It's 100% Lambswool; hand-knit in Nepal."
