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.
Its very warm and dries quickly, but its not quite long enough. My earlobes stick out the bottom, no matter how far down I pull the beanie. It also likes to slide upwards off my head, which wouldn't be a problem if it was longer, but being so short it exposes your ears even more.
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.
Very comfortable hat and warm, and good breathability. I got the medium size which is a bit large for my liking for my small head - hat size is 6 3/4. It is still comfortable and I continue to use when it’s cold out.
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.
