Kenneth A.wrote a review of Arc'teryx Classic Beanie on December 20, 2008
I was worried reading some of the reviews, because I, too, have a bit of a big bubble head, however, the beanie fits perfectly just over the earlobe (although I have short, thin hair). If you have lots of hair it might not come all of the way to your earlobe. I don't find it itchy, and it is super warm wool. Typical Arc'teryx quality.
