Kickstarter's Most Successful Beanie: TATSU by FURST



FURST is excited to introduce the best travel beanie you will ever wear. Ounce for ounce, gram for gram, there is no other hat that will provide the warmth, wind resistance, portability, and comfort of the TATSU Beanie. Think of it as a lightweight, high quality down jacket designed for your head. We used the same construction technique by incorporating a 20-denier nylon coupled with 700 fill power goose down and by using a Japanese inspired baffle pattern to maximize warmth and minimize the weight.



Product Specifications


Our 700 fill power (loft) goose down is hypoallergenic and moisture-wicking, and provides outstanding warmth-to-weight ratio that is perfect for a beanie.

Down's organic fibers are not actually made from feathers, but rather are the fluffy underlayer that is beneath them. Gram for gram, high quality goose down is the BEST NATURAL INSULATOR in the world, beating out all other materials used for apparel and accessories.

Down is also known to have unparalleled durability, outlasting any other insulation by at least 3X. Other insulators often undergo packing, washing, and other external forces that compromise their ability to bounce back and become less effective with prolonged use. This is why down is the most economical choice after initial investment.


Weighing in at a scant 1oz (29 grams), TATSU compresses to such a tiny package that it makes for the perfect everyday carry head wear so you have no excuse to leave it behind. It's the perfect companion for adventure travel, camping, hiking, the Van Life / Tiny Homes, or any other outdoor activity where ultra-portability matters.

Our Users Love Us


We lose a massive percentage of body heat through our heads so it's essential that we keep it warm; however, most beanies perform poorly in windy conditions and leave our heads and ears cold. Contrast that to TATSU's wind-proof but breathable, expedition-grade nylon shell. It's the same trusted material that's used in down sleeping bags.

Ultracompact - Packs to Size of Golf Ball


Many beanies are itchy and need to be put away inside a backpack or a purse when you're not wearing it. Furst's TATSU beanies compresses and packs into a carrying pouch that's small enough to easily fit in a jean pocket.

Cruelty-Free RDS Certified Down


We deeply care about the environment and the welfare of people and animals. That is why we only source cruelty-free down that is Responsible Down Standard (RDS) certified to ensure our suppliers treat animals humanely.

How to Wash Your Down Beanie

When properly cared for, your FURST Tatsu Down Beanie will last for decades. Regular washing will help your down beanie last longer and perform at its best.


  • Machine-wash your down beanie on a gentle cycle at 28 °C (or 82 °F). If it's available, select the ‘extra rinse’ option. Use a down-specific soap or detergent, like Nikwax Down Wash
  • Skip the spin cycle. It’s better for your beanie to drip dry and/or use a tumble dryer.


  • Soak your down beanie for up to 60 minutes in a sink. Again, go for a down-specific detergent like the Nikwax Down Wash
  • Rinse by lightly squeezing out excess water (don’t wring it!) and follow the drying steps below.


  • Once the wash is complete, carefully remove your beanie — it'll be heavier than you think — and lay flat to dry on a clothing rack. As you do this, gently fluff up the down.
  • It’ll take around 24–48 hours to drip dry depending on the weather conditions. As it dries, keep giving it the occasional fluff, particularly around any wet clumps of down.
  • When the beanie is almost dry, put it in the tumble drier on a low heat and check it regularly. To maximize the loft of your Tatsu Beanie, throw in two to three tennis balls, this will really help fluff up your down beanie

Things to Avoid:

Down is a tough performer against the cold, but when wet, needs a little extra attention from you. To ensure you don’t damage your beanie, here’s what you should avoid:

  • Fabric softener. Stick to a down-specific detergent for the best results.
  • Dishwashing detergent. It will strip the naturals fats and oils found in down that prevents it from clumping together and provides the incredible loft associated with down
  • A dry clean. The solvents they use in the dry cleaning process can damage your beanie.
  • A top loader with an agitator. It’s a rougher wash, and your versatile beanie deserves a gentle hand.
  • The spin cycle. Down is heavy when it’s wet, so err on the side of caution to avoid damage.
  • Wringing. Don’t wring your beanie, no matter how heavy it is. If you must, gently shake any excess water off while supporting its weight and squeeze out excess water
