- Q & A
It's odd to give a fleece at a 5 star rating, because all hats are the same, right? Not at all. I got this hat in the mid-2000's and I still wear it all the time. Just like mentioned above, it's great to fit under a helmet. Too many hats are too bulky or too tight like a skull cap. This is the straight up, simple winter hat that fits to be casual and underneath your helmet without it shifting around or adding too much bulk. 10 plus years and I'll keep using it.
Best fleece beanie ever!!!

I already own 5 of these and just ordered another one to keep on hand as a replacement. As an outdoor professional I wear one of these beanies almost daily at around 200-250 days per year.
They fit my head snugly being a guy with a shaved head (about 7 1/4 hat size on average) and they are warm without being bulky. I can easily wear them under my climbing or snowboard helmet and can easily stash one in my bag or luggage or car door in case I need a hat for the cold. Will most likely buy more of them as well.
Side note, for some reason the blue and red one fit a touch bigger. They are still fine but wold be better for someone with hair :D
Great beenie! Very light but warm!
Used it for first time on my 13 day JMT thru hike...I've had Patagonia capilene beenies but prefer this one.....great for underneath a hood during sub freezing temps or good to mid thirties alone...cheap and versatile piece of gear.

I'm a bald and beautiful man living in Montana. This beanie feels great on my dome! Knocks the chill right off the ole coconut! It is my go to beanie for warmth fit and comfort! Get it! You'll love it!
This is definitely one of my top favorite beanies. It provides a nice warmth for a thin light hat. The fact that it is thin means it's great as the description says for layering under other hats, helmets, hoods, etc.
The seams are relatively low profile which also means you don't end up with strange lines digging into your head if it's under something like a helmet.
Being fleece it obviously isn't very windproof but on warmer days or low wind days this hat is definitely fine on its own as well.
Being light means if you're participating in energy intensive activities in cold weather you also aren't sweating out your ears - it provides the perfect balance of warmth as you hike up mountains or run in the woods without making your head feel like it's summer again.
I think I own like 50 beanies but this one definitely stands out. I've had it for about 2 years now - I love the fit and I love how lightweight it is.
Keeps you warm but doesn't make you feel like your head is burning up on the in-between days and is equally awesome as a layer on the chilly days.
It's a hat!
Fits like a glove, for your head. Got the medium, don't have a particularly large or small head, so med worked just fine. It will fit under my climbing helmet better than my knit one, less bulk, but still warm.
Potentially great beanie (for me)

I rate this 4 stars based on my own bias with beanies. I like a beanie that isn't flush with my scalp and covers my ears. This beanie is more on the smaller side of roominess (I think that's why it's call "micro dome") Ha. It's very nice material, the fleece is the same allover and its a midweight to lightweight fleece I would say. I think this will be a great beanie for many people. I'm just a bit picky when it comes to my head. Give it a go! Lovely colors and very toasty! I think it's a men's hat, but it fit my head just fine, and so I would say possibly uni-sex, since it doesn't specify.
Love this hat!
Because this hat is lightweight fleece it fits easily into a pocket. But, it has kept my head warm this cold winter. I love the color 'azul'.

Lightweight fleece, breathable - yet warm enough to protect against the wind. I've got a couple versions of the Micro Dome, and wore it on my last 14er. Great job on the elements!
I've had the micro dome for a number of years now, actually on my second, and I love it! It looks great as a stand alone beanie but also fits nicely under a helmet. Like the description says, super soft and comfy.
