The Beanie you'll never want to take off
This Hat is Great in the snow/Cold weather. It keeps your head at the perfect temperature and soaks up all of your sweat and drys instantly. I also wore it when it was 60 degrees because of how nice it it feels and how great it is at soaking up sweat. This is a must have Beanie.

My favorite beanie!
I absolutely love this thing. I have it in three colors now. Super comfortable and warm. I even picked one up in black to wear to work.

Classic Hat
Feels like a traditional stocking hat but in awesome camo and merino. A must have.

The beanie your noggin needs!
I put this beanie straight on my head out of the package, and we became one!! This is the beanie my noggin had always longed for, and now it was on my head. "Pure bliss!!," I exclaimed, from over the top of my freshly opened cardboard box. My wife asked, "what is so special about that beanie?" I reluctantly handed it over to her. She tried it on, her face lit up, and I haven't seen it since :(. Now I have to order a new one. I ain't mad.

The Best!
Great in the field and great for drinking beer!

Warm & Comfy
I've had quite a few beanies over time, and his one is absolutely my favorite. Regular wool beanies can be itchy and fleece beanies are useless if they get a little wet. The merino wool in this thing combats both issues. The fact that I can have the best of both in one along with a great camo pattern absolutely great! Buy one and you won't regret it!

Nice and warm.
A nice thick wool beanie. Plenty of length to cover my ears. It's always in my pack for those colder days. The only reason it didn't get five stars from me is the tight fit. I wear a size 7 hat, and it's pretty tight, but as I read in previous reviews, im seeing it loosen up a bit as I wear it more frequently.

Great beanie
This beanie feels great on my bald head… not itchy at all for me! Warm enough to keep my head nice and toasty while sitting for long periods without being too hot when hiking around… love it!

You've hit the ball

Throw away your old carhartt beanies and stocking caps. These things are the best for cold weather hunts! the initial fit was slightly snug, but it stretched and formed to my head the more that I wore it. After a few washings, any of the "itch" that I had before, went away. This is a great piece for the winter and will be on my head or in my pack when ever I head out.

Warm and Comfortable
This beanie is really nice. It's warm and I used it a lot this fall during the rut all the way into late season. I sometimes wear it over my ball cap or stand alone and its fits comfortably. I like that through may wears this season I could not notice it holding any smell or stink like some of my non merino hats from the past. Really pleased with the weight of this beanie compared to the lighter weight beanie's I've owned from firstlite in the past

Awesome beanie
The most comfortable beanie I have ever purchased. I agree with the other review that it might be even better with a lining.

Fantastic cold weather layer
Glad to see this product offered. Been waiting on it! Got a few of them and soon was down to one. My two sons scarfed a set (and they aren't fond of wool). They wear the beanies all the time and never complain about the feel. Now I've got to order more so I'll have one for the pack, one for the jacket pocket, one for the car...

I wear mine under a regular ball cap too, and it makes a fantastic wind-proof very warm head layer with a sun visor.

Nice job FirstLite!

Awesome Hat for Cold weather
Bought this during one of the recent sales and wore it the next day after I received it. I was still hunting and it was in the low 50's and rained for 6 hours. This hat was awesome, even soaking wet it was comfortable and warm. It is a little warm if the temp is above 45*F and you are exerting yourself, packing out or dragging a deer. Looking forward to wearing it as the season gets colder.

Serves it's pupose
I bought this beanie for my Idaho Elk hunt in October not knowing what king of weather to expect as I'm from Pennsylvania. This hat in Fusion complimented the rest of my Fusion pieces, but also kept my shaved dome nice and warm without a lot of weight. I consider my melon of medium/large size and I was able to fit my grape into this without strain. I am definitely glad I got this beanie and it is a "go to" piece as is the neck gaiter.

better than expected
I purchased the tag cuff beanie because I wanted a merino hat that was warmer than my brimmed beanie. I didn't expect much, figuring, "it's just a warmer hat," but it has quickly become one of my favorite pieces of gear. It's light, soft, warm and comfy, and it does an unexpectedly good job blocking the wind, plus it has all the benefits of being merino - I've been very pleasantly surprised.

I now own two
I began my merino conversion from synthetics over the last few years, and was excited to see a thicker knit hat than what I was previously accustomed. I purchased one in ASAT for hunting and am so impressed that I just purchased another in pine for everyday wear.

I will own three if they release it in BLAZE ORANGE.

Surprisingly nice fit!
The tag cuff merino beanie is a nice option to have in your pack on those crisp, chilly hunts. Comprised of merino wool, it regulates temperature well and minimizes any scent coming from your head. The fit of the beanie is very snug, but I had no issues covering my ears. My hat size is 7 3/8.
I would like to see the inside of beanie lined with aerowool, similar to the fabric of the neck gaiter. As with any wool hat I've ever worn, I tend to get itchy after a couple hours. This could be a personal issue and not everyone will experience.
Overall, this is a great beanie.
