This hat is absolutely perfect. It’s warm, comfortable and the right size. I hate beanies that are too big and cover my eyes. I also hate beanies that are too small and don’t cover my ears. This beanie is perfect. Will definitely be buying more in different colors!
I’m a first responder in Utah, and recently purchased this hat for my upcoming limited entry bull elk hunt. My first time wearing it, was during a hurricane force windstorm that came through the Wasatch front yesterday and lasted into today. the temperatures dropped into the 40’s from a previous high of high 90’s. This hat kept me warm in the early morning and late evenings of those two very long shifts, and cool during the warmer, yet still chilly afternoons. This is a fantastic product that fit extremely well for my big a$$ head! Great product, fantastic prices and quick shipping so far has me hooked! Can’t wait to buy more gear that I probably don’t really need, but will do so regardless! Thanks FirstLite!
First time I have used a merino stocking hat and I don't think I will go back to anything else. This hat is great. I was going to get a tag cuff beanie but they were out so I ordered this. I was concerned that my ears would get cold without have the extra cuff but surprisingly they don't. It is easy to layer a balcava over or under it as well. Great hat!
Nice warm hat that I can put over my ball cap and also under my kevlar helmet at work on cold days.
Love all my first lite gear with the exception of this beanie. Does not fit over your ears, thus not providing the warmth you need from a beanie. Also bunches up in the front like shown in the above product pictures. Going to try the cuff beanie with the hopes it fits a little better,
Great hat! Super warm and dries really quickly if it gets wet. Highly recommend!
So far I love this beanie and how warm it is. Its almost to warm to wear when the sun pops out but my head has never been cold wearing this beanie. The merino wool material is good quality and super comfortable.
This being such a small piece in someone arsenal can make a difference in your comfort. I tested this out in many likely conditions rain, snow, wind and even slept with it on for a month straight with out washing this piece. Kept my head warm from wind chil of -9f and comfortable even at 70f. wind can pass thur it, but still kept it's warmth. I did like how the size(s) didn't obstruct my vision and ran down alittle past the back of my neck for little bit of extra protection. The only very minor con that I found to this piece is it felt slightly off balance. Did I mention I wore it for a month straight while sleeping? There was no smell detection whatsoever. Hands down you're getting what you pay for.
Much heavier than other merino beanies i've owned. I expect this will perform well from early to mid season, and will be great as a layer piece in the late season.
Durable. Soft. Warm.
