Kevin Jantzerwrote a review of SmartWool Lid Beanie on December 8, 2014
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: True to size
Wow, from the moment I put this on my head it became my favorite.
I recently lost my Mountain Hardwear power stretch beanie on a backpacking trip and was so bummed as that had been my favorite. I tried finding the same one online but couldn't.
Then on saw this come up on S&C and figured I'd give it a try. I love it! As the other reviewers said, the fit is snug and perfectly cups my noggin. I really like the extra thickness around the ears since that's usually one of the main reasons I put a beanie on.
