I love this wonderful beanie, keeps me warm, and nothing too dramatic. I got it in the white, It looks wonderful, and my friends all want one. ^.^
This Beanie is perfect. I am as particular about my Beanie as anyone you will ever meet. In fact, my friends regularly accuse me of having obsessive compulsive disorder due to this. So after losing my favorite, I searched for months (no joke) and bought at least 5 different Beanie's, none of which I was happy with. Then I found this one! This is the perfect Beanie for Southeast Alaska. It has just the right amount of warmth. Southeast Alaska isn't really all that cold so this wouldn't make a good hat for extreme cold weather but for temps around freezing, it's perfect. It keeps your head warm without getting too hot. Thanks backcountry.com!
P.S. I am now on my second one of these hats.
This is a great casual/hiking hat. It never made my head itch, and it fit like a glove. I noticed someone else made this comment, but this isn't a good hat when wet. While mine didn't get soaked, it got pretty moist with sweat and some snow. Like another review mentioned, when this happened it did expand and sag. If you're looking for a casual hat or a hat for activities with a very low probability of getting wet, this is your hat.
Not reccomended for skiing / boarding
Initially this beanie fit perfectly and looked great. My first day out with it in Utah, on a light snow day, and it almost literally fell apart. As soon as it gets even a little bit wet the material expands and sags, making it a really uncomfortable fit. I would never wear it skiing again.
That said, once it dried it returned to a normal fit, and now this is my go-to winter beanie for going to work or going out in town when i need head protection from the weather.
I personally didn't like this beanie all that much. It sat really high on my head and just looked weird.The quality and construction of the beanie is good though.
I bought this a few months ago. It fits PERFECTLY. It's stretchy enough to cover people with larger heads. The tag is pretty cool as well. I recommend this to people interested in buying a new cap.
