Great for a ski helmet liner!

I just bought this to use with my ski helmet, because the helmet has open vents. It's pretty thin so my snug-fitting helmet can easily fit over it, and it seems to be plenty warm enough. I really like that it's big enough to fit over my ears!

The L/XL is a massive beanie for a huge noggin. I picked it up with a one size fits all hat from Arc'teryx and this one is super huge, the other is a bit tight. Not sure what their sizing system is. It's an excellent skull cap though for fitting under a helmet. The radius is good for my head. So the L/XL is pretty accurate there. But the depth of the beanie is tremendous. I think it was designed for a conehead or for someone with a mop of hair they need to keep under control.
Still works. I love it. It's stretch fabric allows you to grab and tug it to adjust without consequences - it'll stay mostly in place.
Phase me, bro

I'm a Phase fan. I love the shirts so I got a Phase AR Hoody when they came out. Fantastic! Then I had to try the beanie. A couple of days after getting it I took it out for a little spin (26.2 miles). It was great. Large enough to cover the ears. Great for cool and cold weather aerobic activities because it provides warmth but you don't overheat easily. The construction is interesting. The stitching and four darts form a U-shape open at the forehead. Not sure exactly what that is designed to accomplish. Even with it pulled snug the darts tend to form little points, but I don't have any hair to fill it out, and it's certainly not as goofy looking as the 6-dart Rho LTW construction. I'm square in the Medium size range and bought a S/M; it seems slightly tight at times, but having it any looser might be a mistake. Slight qualms about the looks and sizing aside, it's a superb beanie because it's so light, is stashable anywhere, and, most of all, provides good temperature regulation.
