Great beanie but don't wash it !
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I have 2 Arcteryx Beanie which I used during Winter and after many years it does get dirty. I had to wash one of them because it was dirty and was planning to air-dry it. After the initial wash. it shrink and get out of shape. Otherwise, material is great, fits very well, pack easily and looks good. I have never used for cold winter and keep me warm but not very good for windy conditions.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: Runs small
So again I have to say I like this beanie, but it shrinks like crazy when washed (even when just air dried). If you like these I would highly recommend Norrona's beanies, they just don't shrink like arcteryx and are a little roomier for people with larger and medium sized heads. The warmth of their logo beanie can't be better. I guess I am pretty bias, because I love Norrona, but hey when I wash their beanies and air dry I don't have problems with shrinking.
Warm but can shrink even when airdrying
I love this hat. The fleece lining is warm and comfortable and the wool is really warm. The only dislike I have is it has a tendency to shrink over time even when air drying it out. The hat is warm in the right conditions. it is not for windproofing when you need it.
It is a really nice hat...very high quality just like all Ar'teryx gear.....I was surprised though at how light weight it was.....not a real "dead of winter" kind of hat....more like a spring skiing of high output kind of hat. Definitely a keeper though.....now just need to find one that is heavier like I originally wanted.
BF Likes it!
Got this for my BF, he loves it! I have to say it looks good on him too...
Nice hat, not windproof, but comfortable... the little metal Arc'teryx thingy is kinda annoying and I wasn't too sad when it fell off... I still like the Classic Beanie or Qubert Beanie better... but hey, what else are you gonna spend your money on?
Handsome man buys very attractive hat.
It's hard to believe that anything could make me look better than I already do, but this had does just that. Look out ladies, there's a new man in town. And he's wearing an Arc'teryx molly and moe beanie to keep his studly head warm.
Hiked Mt Fuji with it. Perfect for the summit.
Not a bad beanie...just not for me.
I too ordered the White Tea beanie. The colors were a little off from the picture. I liked the off-white color but the green was almost neon. Not exactly what I pictured, but not bad.
Anyway, I think I have a fairly average sized female head, and this beanie was too long if that makes sense. It fit around my head just fine and was very comfortable, but there was a good portion of empty beanie on the top that kind of reminded me of a smurf hat. The fit issue is what made me return it. The inside was soft and it was lightweight and seemed like a good hat if it weren't so smurf-y on me!
not as pictured
This is a cool beanie, but just not for me. I bought the white tea and its more of a dirty white then white (it's darker then pictured). I didn't like the color.
Identical to an older style hat of theirs (the name was very similar). Not something for camping in the wilderness on cold nights (not windproof at all), but nice to wear casually or underneath a helmet. I received a lot of compliments.
This version is a fair amount bigger - will easily fit both male and female heads, but if you have a smaller head, it is a little too long (an inch more than the older hat and larger than the waldo beanie as well).
