    What retailer sells a Turtle Fur hat?

    I use to own a turtle fur hat and I have seemed to have lost or misplaced it. I'm not sure, which hat it was, but I have a good idea. Anyways, I want to go to a store and try to find it again. I think this one is it. Turtle Fur Comfort Shell: Frost Liner Black | SnowShack.com

    I guess this would work too. Do you recommend any super thin helmet liners that would keep me warm down to the mid 30s or around freezing. This one was lycra with just a warm microfleece or "turtle fur" over the ears that kept them warm. It wicked moisture away extremely well. I didn't get too hot or cold wearing it and that's why I want another one.

    Turtle Fur Polartec Windbloc Frost Liner Beanie at REI.com


    I use a smartwool hat. It is thin enough to easily fit under a helmet and doesn't stink. It isn't windproof, so if you are out on the road or exposed, it isn't the best. Otherwise, it is great. You can completely cover your ears and most of your neck by unfolding it.

    I never heard of a furry turtle either until I walked into that ski and snowboard shop in North Carolina. I found it strange it even existed because it was 2 hours east of the mountains.

    Thanks for the quick reply. Looks like I'll have to pick one up in Cincinnati. The windblock feature looks like a nice upgrade over the hat I posted. I don't want something for down to freezing. I break out my balaclava for those temps. Right now I'm using a very thin 100% polyester hat that looks similar to the turtle fur. It doesn't let heat out as easily so I get hot in it much faster than my turtle fur.

    Be prepared to pay a pretty penny for a real turtle fur hat. The last count was 16 Fur Turtles left in the wild. With low farming numbers to one farm in Transylvania with only 22 Fur Turtles at present count. Many a Fur Turtle has been raped via Hollywood which plummeted the population in the early 2000's. Many blame it on the Paris Hilton phenomena.

    If you're looking for a liner, an alternative is a Buff. I picked one up at REI last year on a whim since I already have a polypro liner cap for cold weather riding. After using the Buff this winter, I'll probably only use the polypro liner when its below freezing and use the Buff the rest of the time.

    I really like the Icebreaker Merino Wool products. Great stuff. I use the "Chase Beanie" under my helmet and it works great. Also the "Quantum Headliner" looks great.

    I've got a turtle fur skullcap type hat. Very thin, but quite warm. Use it on winter rides, but mostly wear it under my hardhat while working outside in winter.

    Edited to reflect the direct link.
