Cold ears be gone.
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
This beanie is a warmth step-up from the lighter-weight Rho beanie, yet remains breathable during aerobic activity. The extended ear coverage and sunglass arm ports at the side are especially attractive for cold days in the saddle or on the nordic track. This was a Christmas gift for my father-in-law, who loves using it for cycling or skate skiing.
Best beanie for the bike
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I have tried many different beanies for the bike, I hate cold ears. This is the first one that I have found that is thin enough to fit comfortably in my helmet but still keeps my head warm in temps in the teens. The slots for my sunglasses keeps the cold wind from creeping in. Seriously, I LOVE this beanie.
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I have a big head this thing fits perfect.
Good for larger melons
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
If you're like me an wear a 7-5/8 hat (or larger for some of you) you probably are aware that buying beanies sucks because they rarely cover your ears. It's fairly easy to knit your own wool beanie but getting something light and synthetic can be a challenge. I tried on a buddies Arc Procline beanie and to my delight the L/XL is a perfect fit. Overall it's a pretty straightforward beanie. Light. Washes easy. Fits great under a climbing or skiing helmet. Looks super dorky. Typical active wear stuff. But if you normally have trouble getting beanies to fit I'd say this is good for probably 7-1/2 to 7-7/8 heads. Maybe a tight fit if your head's bigger than that.
