This beanie is the best workout beanie I have ever used. It's really lightweight, regulates temperature even when you are working hard, and feels very comfortable to wear (especially for those of us who don't have quite so much hair anymore).
It has a snug fit, which I like because I'm pretty active and I don't have to worry about it slipping off.
Overall, an excellent purchase.

Nice warm protection for my run, keeps me warm and is easily washed. No more itchy wool caps in the cold

This is a very thin item. It fits well under your helmet. It keeps the ears warm. I use this down to 40 degrees and then I revert to my Assos cold weather gear.

My husband and I own quite a few Smartwool products, so I felt confident ordering this hat for him for Christmas. Perhaps I misunderstood the intended target audience, but this hat is sized for a child! No amount of stretching was going to make this one work. Bummer!

I wanted a wool beanie that had a tight nit like a bed sheet. I go camping and while walking through the brush I have had branches fork my beanie off, or get lots of stickies caught in them. This beanie is not only warm, but also stays cleaner out there.

As far as sizing goes, it's set for large/medium heads, and the material does not stretch. As comparison the cuffed version(same nit) is somewhat stretchy.

Comfort, the fit is perfect, but the merino wool is not s soft as the cuffed version. No matter, still a 5 star review.

I would use this beanies from 60 to 45 degrees.

I decided to splurge on a more expensive, non-cotton beanie for running. I initially felt badly for spending $30 on a seemingly average, thin, plain looking beanie, but was surprised by its performance. I shave my head, so it gets pretty cold on my winter runs. I also sweat a lot, which makes for a fairly miserable experience when it's 30 degrees out.

The SmartWool wisks away sweat fairly well and actually controls the temperature. It traps enough heat to keep my head and ears warm, yet lets out enough of the warmth so that I don't overheat. It's pretty impressive. I don't think I'd pay more than $30 for one, but any price point below that is very reasonable. I will be purchasing the blue version soon as well.

This was my first Smartwool purchase. The brand has been heavily advertized at the best outdoor sports shop in my city, so I did expect it to be well made. Other than that, I had no clue.

The hat has a very tight weave, which is necessary for cold days when the wind is blowing. Unfortunately the fabric is incredibly thin, the beanie is sized really small (and I have a small head!) and it exerts too much pressure on my head to wear comfortably. Although it's wool it feels more like nylon or Dacron. It's not fluffy at all. It's not warm enough for a Minnesota winter, either. This is not what I expected at all, and definitely not worth the high price. Next time I'll go to a brick and mortar store to buy a winter hat, so I can see what I'm buying and try it on first.

I purchased this hat to go with my essentials for hiking. I loved the light weight of the product. Additionally, it packs up as small as an average size salt or pepper shaker. The reversable black and grey helps match up with my awesome wardrobe. Ha ha.
Seriously, it is great. I wore it on a 15 mile hike this weekend in a decent rain and 35 degree weather. I kept my dome nice and warm. The two layers are only connected with the seams, and that must help in insulation. It does stretch a little and is snug fitting as compared to a loose fitting tobogan.
You probably know merino wool keeps its insulating properties when wet, and this cap did that for me.
It is holding up well even after several snags. Love it.

Excellent product and description. Love the fast shipping. Very warm too! Highly recommend if you are like me and don't like all the bulk.
