The Hooligan is perfect for any chilly day or night along the trail. Built using our ultralight fabrics and synthetic insulation, the Hooligan insulates your head and ears in damp, cold, and windy conditions. 2-ounce Climashield APEX insulation gives you excellent all-weather performance and insulates your head even when wet.  

The fabric is smooth, ultralight nylon that offers wind resistance and a durable water repellent finish to repel mist, snow, or sweat. A super-soft, lightweight microfleece lines the brim and ear flaps to keep the Hooligan comfortably on your head. When not in use, the Hooligan will stuff just about anywhere in your pack. It’s also easy to wash and dries quickly.

Important Note: Custom orders cannot be changed once they are in production. Returned custom orders (or custom orders cancelled after production has started) will incur a 20% restocking fee. No exceptions.

"I've gone through a few other similar products which I loved but never quite fit right. The hooligan is just right. The cap doesn't pull down so far as to obscure my vision, the ear flaps cover exposed skin perfectly without getting in the way of my scarf. As usual, Enlightened Equipment has put a ton of thought into the details when designing this cap." - Maggie

Hooligan Custom

The Hooligan Custom is now my favorite piece of "gear" that I've purchased in the past year, . . . and I've bought a lot. It's lightweight, super warm and definitely a conversation piece since it's so goofy looking. It's well worth the money.

For those worried about sizing, I have about a 25" circumference so headgear is always difficult to find. The XL fits me perfectly.

Hooligan with flaps

A head covering that does not come off during the night. I used this item two nights in a snow cave while winter camping. I usually wake up during the night and have to find my head covering.
The hooligan was in place every time I woke up during the night. No digging in the sleeping bag trying to find the head gear. Beautiful fit!!
I am 72 years young and some say I have spent two many winter night in the snow to be normal any longer. This is a wonderful piece of gear and worth every penny I paid for it.
