Excellent Beanie

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:Runs small

Seems like I am the only female to put their two cents in about this beanie!!

Firstly, the Patagonia tag says "unisex"... which doesn't really mean much since it's only going to fit a certain range of head sizes regardless of sex.

It has some stretch, but not a lot, so unless you have a small head this beanie is not for you. One of my girlfriends tried to put it on and it just did not even work - large head and a lot of hair, which adds bulk.

Me... I have a small head / long hair and it fits me perfectly. To give you some helmet size is adult xs. :) I usually have trouble finding beanies that fit me. Kids sizes are generally too small and the adult ones are usually too big and sloppy on my head!! I love this one. I also love that the beanie is fully reversible. I have the howler Bandana Blue and it's got the message "LIVE SIMPLY" on the reverse with the paw print. It's knitted very tightly with two layers so it's very warm. I agree that this one is going to be too warm for moderate trail hiking and any aerobic activity unless it's below zero!!

I just bought the creek/hickory one... looking forward to receiving it!!

Runs Small...

I had an old lined beanie by Patagonia which I wore in all occasions. It did not matter if I was in the backcountry, or just walking around in the city. Before my wife and I went to New York I decided to retire my old one and buy a new one, but that was a mistake. I have a fairly small head and this beanie is still too shallow. I had to constantly keep pulling the beanie down to cover my ears, and that was still never a permeant fix. If you think you have normal to large head, then I would not buy this beanie.

Looks good, too shallow

  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I had a lined Patagonia beanie with a ball on it for nearly 7 years. I recently lost it on a backcountry ski day. I was torn up about it, but figured I could buy this one as a replacement and it would fit the same, minus the awesome hanging ball. It turns out this one is not lined around the ears, that's not a huge deal though. The problem is that it is considerably shallower than the last. It rides up immediately and doesn't cover the bottom half of my ears. I don't have a big head either, I wear a size medium helmet. I returned the beanie and got this one that fits much better:

**If anyone finds & returns my orange Patagonia beanie with ball attached on the skin track to Red Baldy in Little Cottonwood Canyon, I'll buy you a six-pack.

Too small

  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Love Patagonia stuff, but the sizing on headwear is quite inconsistent. I have a Beanie and fits fine, but this Flippin' Beanie is way too small. Handed it off to my girlfriend and she likes it.

Warm 'n' Toasty

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

This is a great simple beanie that works great on the mountain, and looks great off too. I got the lone pine and love the pattern.

The knitted material is soft and slightly stretchy to allow for a comfortable fit, and is tightly enough knitted to block all but the strongest coldest wind from reaching you.

Be warned though, this is a warm hat! I have found it to be to warm for high output activities like winter hiking unless it's absolutely frigid out. Better for around camp, walking to class, or a night on the town.

Great Toque.

    I picked up the Lone Pine/Forest last fall and it quickly became my most worn hat. It's got a great thickness to it that keeps your head nice & warm. I've received a lot of compliments on this hat too. I've washed it a few times and I was stoked that the colours have stayed nice and bright. Great rugged hat that looks good inside or out.

    Is the Patagonia Flippin Beanie lined?

    Is the Patagonia Flippin Beanie lined?

    No, it has the same knit material on the interior, with different graphics (it's reversible, hence the "Flippin'"). This is primarily a fashion item, but that is not to say that is no good.. it's two layers of knit nylon/wool, so it is plenty warm.

    You may want to take a look at the Patagonia "Lined Beanie." It is pretty much the same hat with a 5.2oz polyester fleece lining. Toasty. Hope that helps!

    Does anyone know the width/length of this...
