- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
It's a really nice looking beanie and cute for round town, but it is cold. Very thin, the cold and wind rip straight through.
Best beanie I've had..
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This is the best beanie I've ever had. Period. It's lightweight and can be folded easily into a small pocket. At first I did not think it would be warm given it's thin fabric. But after a few minutes I realized it's really warm!
My new favorit hat
This thing rocks! I dont have to roll the bottom up to avoid looking like I have a resivoir tip. It is nice and thin, with no liner sewn in, but still provides ample warmth. All in all, a great hat.
It is a very stylish and light weight beanie.
Arc'teryx - 100% merino wool
Bought one of Arc'teryx's merino wool hats end of last year on sale (slightly different color design) but held up wonderfully in the blizzard that just hit new england (spent all day outside snowblowing). Was skeptical of the merino wool because normal wool makes me very itchy. Beware if wool bothers you but I had no issues. Love their hats. Arc'teryx is of some of the highest quality products out there. You get what you pay for.
Beware of color
Great fit and warmth to weight ratio, but be aware the picture comes across blue, but it is more of a purple color
Loved the look, fit and weight of this beanie but unfortunately I found it REALLY itchy.
Comfortable, form-fitting beanie
This wool beanie is a nice, comfortable, warm, form-fitting wool beanie. It breathes nicely. Not too thick. Not too thin. If you are stationary & it is very cold, there are better choices, but if you are fairly active, or it isn't frigid, this is a great choice. Solid, good looking Arc'Teryx woolie.
Anyone know what the weight of the merino...
Anyone know what the weight of the merino wool used in this beanie?
Arc'teryx' site only says Lightweight/ 85 g (which is more than most companies specify). I'd guess it's around an 18 micron. Looks like a good beanie though, good luck.
