Yes this is a lightweight, thin beanie, that is in its name. This has been my exclusive beanie for backcountry skiing for 4 seasons. I use it alone or with an old Backcountry Windstopper softshell beanie as a 3 in 1. With it always stuffed in my touring pack, sometimes worn under a shell beanie, and generally abused. It is not coming apart and hardly shows sign of wear.
It seems to keep my head just perfectly warm while hiking. Like all Merino products, It breathes well and seems to be much warmer then synthetic materials. It will be in my touring pack for many more years.
