So, you wanna keep your face warm but don't wanna scare people with a full ski mask or maybe your follicles are a tad whisker challenged and it takes you the better part of year to Paul Bunyan it up enough to stay warm. Well, byebye scarves. This winter your frozen facial problems are over: enter the Beard Hat from Beardo!


The hat (or at least it's scruffy extension) was invented for snowboarders and skiers as they fly down the slopes freezing their faces off but it's uses don't stop there. Think of all those chilly mornings shoveling the driveway or maybe your job takes you outdoors frequently and you've got your Carhardt gear to keep your lower cheeks warm but need help keeping your upper cheeks toasty, slap this baby on and instant beard! You can choose the color that best represents you and there's even one with a bendable mustache! These guys have thought of everything and are cooking up more and more. Here's what Beardo says about their hats on their website:

• Very functional in cold climates
• One of a kind gift ideas!
• Designed with a unique hand knit pattern
• Slightly slouchy and stylishly fit
• Made of 100% acrylic yarn for comfort
• Soft and never itchy or scratchy!
• Tightly knit for the best possible quality.
• Beard adjustment range of up to 14 cm!
• Always re-adjustable! Don't worry about sizes.
• Foldaway the beard easily for fancy dinner parties!

Um, yep... I'm off to get one and while donning this hat may not make you as funny as Zach Galifianakis or as musically awesome as Zac Brown (do all Zac(h)'s grow beards??) it doesn't mean you can't pretend (yes, you women too if you're feeling adventurous!) Imagine a Beardo flash-mob at the UC Men's Hockey opener and speaking of hockey, check out the Beardo with a hockey sockey with your favorite team's colors! Be sure to click the video below and of course grab one of these and maybe I'll see ya round town and we'll compare shag!
