Here at the Strategist, we like to think of ourselves as crazy (in the good way) about the stuff we buy, but as much as we’d like to, we can’t try everything. Which is why we have People’s Choice, in which we find the best-reviewed products and single out the most convincing ones. (You can learn more about our rating system and how we pick each item here.)

And while we’ve written about lots of winter accessories before — including gloves for women, mittens for women, and touchscreen gloves — here, we’ve rounded up the best winter hats for women, as praised by the most enthusiastic reviewers on Amazon.

Best-rated winter hat for women

Carhartt Watch Hat A18 — White/Black

Ignore the gender-specific labeling. This “men’s” hat can be worn on any head. Even skeptical ones, like the woman who never thought she “could ever pull off a beanie” because they tend to give her a bulky “alien head” look. She had no such problem with this one. Another reviewer wanted something with “a cute factor” for her hiking trip in Iceland. “My skin is sensitive and doesn’t do well with wool,” she says. “This is soft and comfortable.” Nearly 700 more reviewers agreed with her on that comfort. One says this hat has it all: “fashion, comfort and quality.” Although she expected it to be too big, since it’s listed as a men’s hat, she found that it’s actually “for any head size,” she says. “My teen also approves as apparently they are in style now and celebs are wearing them too,” she adds. In terms of style, one reviewer says “the fold is adjustable, so it can be as hipster beanie or tight laced as you please.” Another says, “the fit is snug to the point that I can sling it back without it falling off and it fits over my afro or straight hair the same and doesn’t lose is stretch after washing.”
