The Badwater Hat uses a 1x1 rib punctuated by tiny cables to create the perfect one-size-fits all hat. The subtle texture brings just a bit of interest to a classic style beanie, and looks great on everyone. The furrows and nubs remind me of a recent visit to Death Valley’sBadwater Basin, and the expanse of the bright salt flats crunching under my feet.
