    Do you mean this? It's called a "hooded top" or "hoodie" Redirect Notice

    Re: top which is fixed with a hat

    The hat part is called the "hood".
    There are many different names for the entire piece of clothing you describe. Because you said "winter", I would say that "anorak" might be a good choice. However, hoods can be found on many different types of clothing made for all seasons.

    There are words missing from your original sentence and it is not properly constructed. The way it stands now, one gets the impression that the article of clothing you are describing cannot be removed (rather than just the hood).
    If you rewrite the sentence, we'll take a look and tell you if it is grammatical or not.

    What do we the kind (?) of winter clothing (top) which is fixed with a hat which/that cannot be removed. INCORRECT

    What is the name of a piece of winter clothing that has a fixed hood that cannot be removed?

    Re: top which is fixed with a hat

    I'd like to repeat that the part that covers your head is called a hood, not a hat.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    You're correct Barb. My mistake.
    The sentence could read:
    What is the name of a piece of winter clothing that has a fixed hood that cannot be removed?

    Re: top which is fixed with a hat

    "A winter coat" or a "winter jacket." You could describe the coat as "hooded." "Parka" is another name. This is a heavy coat.

    "Hoodie" is the modern term for what used to be called a "hooded sweatshirt." This is a lighter garment than a winter coat. For fall or spring use, or for wearing under a winter coat when it's really cold. Also, for wearing indoors when it's chilly inside.

    Re: top which is fixed with a hat

    In a lot of cases, the hood can be removed. Many hooded coats and jackets actually have a zip which connects the hood to the coat so that it is possible to take it off. That would be probably be clear in the item description though:

    Parka with removable hood.
    Ski jacket with removable hood.
    Anorak with removable hood.
