Beard hats are the invention of Jeff Phillips, a Canadian-born winter enthusiast who has a passion for snowboarding. Jeff was chasing powder runs all around the globe and came up with the first make-shift Beardo in Whistler, B.C back in late 2006 while atop the Blackcomb mountain summit, at 7th heaven. The very first prototype was made using an old knit scarf with a hole in it, and we don't have to tell you that it was far from perfect, but it has since been severely refined to the innovative and fully Patented design that you see today!
Our Ski Mask range was launched thanks to the overwhelming support from our Kickstarter project! Thanks to the support received, we were able launch our patented design, which is also the World’s first seamless 360˚ facemask. It was a great day for skiers and snowboarders!
Since then, we have released over 60 original printed ski mask designs including our newest range of Animal Ski masks with ears! All masks are heavily field tested in the backcountry and parks by some of the World’s best snowboarders and skiers. Ride on!
The Original Beard hat is our flagship product, and since creating them in 2006, they've taken the globe by storm! The Beardo® also just happens to be the World's only Beanie with a foldaway, removable and adjustable beard! Since then we've expanded our range to include Beard hats for kids , a collection of fun accessories and even some incredible Animal ski masks!
If we can keep you warm and get a smile or two, we've done our job!
