Multiple trips to Afghanistan, etc...

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

This is a great hat- I've worn it in conditions from snowstorms at 8,000 feet up in the Hindu Kush to just hanging out at a bar on the weekends. I've had two of these, one of which I was not careful with when doing laundry and shrunk it to baby-hat size... So I bought another one.

Comfortable, warm, and looks cool. If you want to look like a ninja, go for the Nighthawk/Heron colorway.

I wear a M-L ball cap and it fits me perfectly.

Not into it...

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small

I have never hated a beanie, but I hate this one. To make it worse, BC.com just recently changed / backed out on their return-it-anytime policy (which I've only used a couple of times) because I can't return this hat now because its not in the "original wrapper w/ tags" even though I haven't even worn it til recently - and that dings my faith in BC.com to boot.

This thing is insanely overly tight - and I have a tiny head, so I have no clue how its getting 4 & 5 star ratings here from people with obviously bigger nogs than me. My $10 Carhartt's cap fit & felt better than this one. Several people have commented that it looks like a cancer cap...which I could care less about, but it looks retarded regardless.

Worse though - its really not that warm. Wore it a few times (Blue Ridge, eastern US) in only 40 & lower 50 degree temps - the top of my head is chilly and my ears are burning up. Really...for $35 and I itch and am still cold? F that.

We all have our preferences - that's cool. I just hate this hat and w/ BC's no-return on it - a technicality because its unworn - I am stuck w/ it and am forced to give it away.

Bad design & materials Arc'teryx...I'm confused. Bad return policy BC...bummed that you'd diss longtime loyals like myself who promote you.

Hmm. My head is an average size, and the Bird Head Beanie fits great. Any looser and it wouldn't fit the job it's made for. It's also extremely warm. 1 star for a beanie of this quality is amusing. Even if you do have personal problems with it, it's hard to award it less than four stars for the overall quality.

How much does it weigh?

Nice hat

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small

This beanie is nice and warm and definitely does its job. However, if you have a larger noggin like myself; it will look a little funny (haha).

I am not too sure on my hat size but it is about 58-59 cm in circumference (i know right!) and is just a a tad too small for me to be completely comfortable in.

I will slide it on under my ski helmet for extra warmth so that my self consciousness of my overly large head will not get to me. And no one seeing me wear at it can point and galk - sadface.

If you have a normal sized head. Go for it - its a great, warm hat.

warm

Like the viridian green and the bird design. it's warm and not itchy.
while I wear a size 7 /12 (medium) hat, I do find it a little snug

Fits on my head

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

This hat does the job and is a good thickness to fit under a helmet if need-be. It's nice and warm too.

Great fit and awesome warmth

I own two Arc'teryx beanies but this one is my favorite. It's a great fit and provides awesome warmth thanks to the integrated fleece liner headband.

Had to get another one..

Really Great hat. I got another one in a different color. You won't go wrong with this beanie, well made, light weight, very warm!!

poofy top

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs large

I prefer beanies to be snug and just cover my ears. Unfortunately, this hat is too deep for my head and the top goes all "poofy". Otherwise the fleece is soft and comfortable and it be a good thin beanie for moderate/cold weather. I generally fit into large helmets.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I use this beanie almost daily in very cold to moderate temps. It is well made and warm. The liner is a soft material which is comfortable against my ears. The fit is well for my head and I have no complaints about it being too snug. Plus the scheme is cool!

How is the sizing on this hat? I normally...

How is the sizing on this hat? I normally wear XL helmets, will it be comfortable?

This is a one size fits all toque. That being said, I also have a larger head (L/XL) and struggle a little with tightness in some beanies. I have this toque and really like the fit and would recommend it very confidently to you.

I too have a large dome, usually wear L\XL helmets and 7 1\2" hats. This hat fit well at first but after getting it wet a few times it did shrink. I only air dried it. Even new it was a close fitting beanie. This photo was when it was still new

I love this hat - fits perfect and covers my ears fully - and I have a smallish head - I wear a 7 1/8 fitted cap.

Nice Hat !

Looks Like a well made beanie.. I got the blackbird, it is very soft around my ears with the great lining they put it. Also very warm. It goes great with my Alpha SV! Getting one for my son.

NOT one size fits all

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small

Love Arcteryx products but not a fan of this beanie. Definitely do not get if you have a larger sized head like mine and even then it is still a little itchy. It does keep you warm though both wet and dry.

Great Hat

Feels great. Super soft, and not so tight that it is uncomfortable. Very lightweight as well.

I love how even after a couple of years owning this hat that every time I wear it for the first time after a wash, it feels brand new again.

Does this hat make me look like a tool?

I love this hat. I have multiple personalities regarding clothing style, flash, etc. Sometimes I want the most understated article, and then sometimes I love a big bird skeleton to flash across my head.
It's an awesome hat that screams label whore. And I'm cool with that. It's fine. Give me a an Arc'teryx jacket wit h a logo across the back like a biker jacket and I may just have to cough up the $700 for it!
Now to get serious:
It's tight for a larger head. It took a few headaches to stretch it out a bit and feel like it fits my medium/large head ( 7 1/4).
It's warm. It'll slip over ears and keep your noggin warm through a cold New England hike, climb, run or rush from the car.
It will get too warm for high exertion. Once you've climbed a few thousand feet or run a couple miles, you'll want to pull it off for a cool down. It will, however catch sweat and keep it out of your eyes.
the fleece lining is nice and soft. No scratchy forehead.

Buy this and show others how much you love this brand. wear it proudly.

You're right about the fit. The first couple wears are rough: It starts off tight and itchy, but like any beloved article, it only improves with wear.
