The outer label insinuates it was designed and built in the US, but the inner label says made in China. That's odd. But who cares, it's warm!
It's colder outside than it looks!
Took this hat for a snowless winter hike. Head so hot!
An insanely warm oven for your head

First, just want to thank Backcountry.com and Spacecraft for sending the Dock to me to review.
This hat is warm. No, it's crazy warm. My head broke a sweat while strolling through the city the other day. It was 20°F outside and everything on me was cold except for my head!
I primarily do activities like hiking, snowshoeing — things that get the body heat going. I am a bit concerned that this hat will be too warm for those. However, it is really stylish for a stocking cap, and it will definitely get plenty of use when the weather gets a bit colder.
There is a tag on the inside of the hat that allows you to write your contact info incase you lose the hat, which is a nice little detail.
The outer label says Manufacturing USA Distribution which sounds like busted English implying that it was designed and built in the US. The sticker on the inside says made in China. Hmmm. I wouldn't normally ding them on manufacturing origin, but the wording on the outside did feel a bit misleading.
I'll report back with some insights on its performance later this winter — especially after having spent some time on the ski slopes, which is where I imagine this guy really shines.

Rocks this toque all last season. Couldn't be more stoked on it. The one down side is they do stretch a bit, but just throw it in the wash and it's back to being a snug fit.
