Good looking and functional, get it now!
I got this beanie towards the end of winter in early March, and have used it at ski resorts and also during early Spring backpacking. It's a good looking beanie, fairly light at 2 oz (my AWS SC-2kg scale reads 2.03 oz), and slightly contoured that it flares out a touch right above the band at the bottom, giving the needed extra space for your ears and the back of your noggin (it's not as exaggerated as the backcountry photos show when it's taken off). The merino wool, despite the construction of its braiding, isn't irritable to skin either. Minus a star because I don't think it warrants its price tag, but at the current sales price, by all means give it a try!
Good Spring skiing beanie
This beanie is pretty lightweight and long in length. I got the blue space color and it looks sharp I get compliments on it. Not the best beanie for mid winter skiing but works great for warmer temps
