Warm and naturally breathable merino wool fibers make the Stoic Merino Comp Beanie a versatile hat for everything from chilly spring trail runs to hiking the AT through the fall. Stoic had a touch of spandex added to the synthetic-and-merino-blend fabric in order to give it a flexible stretch that fits your head like a glove.

Helmet Liner

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

I was using the more expensive Icebreakers version of this thin wool "hat" for a little while, and I figured I would give the Stoic one a try. My reasons for purchase was that my Giro ski helmet let too much cold air in, even with the vents closed, and my Prett ski helmet is a touch on the roomy side.

The Stoic hat is a thin two layer, mixed material piece, compared to the one layer 92% merino Icebreaker unit. This Stoic one makes for a better (yet still goofy looking) stand alone beanie or thicker liner. Whereas the Icebreaker, I feel, is too thin but makes an excellent liner. Both hats fit great on my small to medium sized head. I think the shape of the Stoic one made it a little more loose compared to the Icebreaker. So in the end, I kept the Stoic beanie because it was just thick enough to take up the room in one helmet and warm enough to take the chill out of the other.

Thin and warm

    This is nice and light, and I could see it being great for spring and fall applications. I bought it in the middle of winter here in the northeast and it's not quite as warm as I would like for 0-20 degree weather, though it does work great under a helmet for climbing and biking . The material is very thin but seems well constructed. Seams on top of the hat tend to "tent" a little bit and poke away from your head, but it's not that bad, and maybe with more use it will flatten out. Overall a great deal for a merino hat of this caliber.
