Carhartt Hats: Men's Navy Flame-Resistant Fleece Work Hat 101578 410
It’s official: it’s winter and it’s freezing outside. You can’t go another day without wearing a work hat. But you just can’t grab any old hat. You need a fire-resistant hat that’ll trap heat from the inside, while keeping dangerous heat, flames and sparks on the outside from getting in. What do you do? Use your head and get yourself a navy blue Carhartt 101578-410 Flame-Resistant Fleece Work Hat.
Constructed of 7.5 ounce, Nomex IIIA fleece, this Carhartt hat is warm, breathable and incredibly protective. Nomex IIIA is a protective fabric blend made of 93 percent Nomex, 5 percent Kevlar Aramid and 2 percent other fiber. (Don't ask.) Nomex protects against flame, heat and electric arcs, while Kevlar makes the fabric more resistant to breakage, tears and abrasions and is lightweight. Nomex IIIA is inherently flame-resistant, therefore, washing this FR hat at home won’t damage its protective features.
After rigorous testing, this fleece work hat has been rated by the National Fire Protection Agency at NFPA 70E. It’s been given a Hazard Risk Category of 2 which provides flame resistance protection and it also protects from arc hazards - it has a rating of ATPV 15.2 calories/cm2. What all this means is that this flame-resistant Carhartt hat won’t melt and burn when it’s exposed to heat and flame.
If you work around dangerous flames and heat you need special protection for your head once winter rolls in. Any old fleece hat isn’t enough to shield your hair and head from dangerous burns on the job. Keep your head warm and safe with the Carhartt 101578 410 Flame-Resistant Fleece Hat.

I got this hat as a gift for Christmas last year......
I got this hat as a gift for Christmas last year, so have really only had one winter to wear it. With that said, I've really enjoyed wearing it. It fits perfectly, keeps my head warm, and while I haven't been in any firey situations, I'm sure it would in fact hold up as Carhartt claims. I had looked into getting a second one to keep in my work truck, and I was a little disappointed in the available color choices, but w hatya gonna do. Overall you can't go wrong with Carhartt hats and this product is no exception.

There aren't many FR winter hats around, so your choices will be limited. This hat isn't a bad option, but it's also not meant for zero and below temperatures. It worked for me for most of the winter, but those days where it's 10 to 20 degrees with wind, I was looking for something warmer. I think this would do fine in most winters of the lower 48, but I work in ND where something a little warmer is needed. Also wouldn't be bad if you're not outside 8+ hrs a day.
