Great hat
January 24, 2011

This hat fits like a beanie. It's a little heavier in weight versus Smartwool merino, but it wicks, dries and fits as well or better. For those of you who shave your head, you will appreciate how easily the hat slides on and off. It will keep you warm and comfortable (0 to -5 F). This hat may easily be worn for running or casual dress.

Not Too Shabby
January 11, 2012

I purchased this hat for running in the winter. I wanted a hat that would cover my ears, keep me warm (but not too warm), was not synthetic, and if I got too hot, I could take it off and store it in my pocket or hand without it being too cumbersome. The Meru hat is perfect. I assume that it will stretch out a little over time because it is wool, but washing it will bring it right back. I own over a dozen Ibex items and have never been disappointed. Please choose sustainable wool. Who wants to wear plastic?

good hat
January 09, 2011

good lightweight comfortable hat for running. Just the right amount of insulation to keep my noggin warm, but not too hot.

Pros: Performance

lil tight
October 23, 2008

Great material and nice style.Though it was too tight for my head. As it being one size only I'm out of luck. It is stretchy but the tightness bothered me after a while.I guess I just have a big head. Probably great for women.

My Must Have Hat
March 22, 2012

This hat serves many purposes, and all of them well. When I lost the one I bought at the beginning of the season, I panicked and had to replace it right away! Originally, I was looking for a hat to wear under my bicycle helmet, which the Meru does nicely. As it turned out, it also had an elegant and classic cut that practically dressed up any cute winter outfit I wore when off of the bike. I love the weight, not too thick, but certainly warm. And what's more, there aren't any unnecessary anythings, which tend to drive me crazy! AND my favorite part, it's Made in the USA!

Pros: Great design, Performance

Great lightweight beanie
December 08, 2009

Quality material and construction. Simple and plain style but that is fine with me. Stretches to accommodate larger heads but not too tight. Also made in the USA. Glad I bought two for the earlier winter months. Not very heavy though.

Great Hat
December 01, 2010

This hat is quite thin, but very warm. It hugs your head nicely, but not too tight. I live in Chicago and it is great here during the winters. It keeps my head (and ears) warm when I am outside even when it is really windy. I also got one for my dad, who has lost his hair due to chemotherapy and lives in Texas. It is not so cold down there, but the hat help keep him warm and cover is head with a little bit of fashion. If I lost mine, I would immediately go buy another.

Best light weight hat
January 27, 2012

I love that it keeps you warm and seems not to overheat like synthetics. It has enough elastic in it that it keeps its shape and stays on when running. It fits nice under a helmet and is not bulky. Love wool

Best Hat Ever!!
September 20, 2013

Cute cute cute and awesome performance. The fit is great and of course the materials are top notch but it has style too...Ibex wins again! Best hat Ever!

Pros: Great design, Performance

great quality, just right for the job
January 17, 2010

I was working in the yard when this arrived. I put it on right away and pretty much haven't taken it off. Other reviews say it doesn't cover ears very well, but they must have really big heads. A little thicker than the 100% wool versions from Ibex.

Beautiful, functional hat.
May 23, 2010

I love this hat. It is simple, yet very attractive. It is stretchy and warm. The heather gray color is beautiful. So far I have only worn it casually on cool nights, but I know it will be the perfect hat for cool weather running, snowshoeing, and cross country skiing. Definitely recommend this hat.

Perfect for me
December 05, 2011

This cap is warm yet is thin enough so it fits easily in a jacket pocket when not being worn. It also works well under a bike helmet. Probably a heavier cap would be needed for really cold conditions but for moderate winters (eg. Washington DC area) it should be fine. I liked the cap so much I bought another one in a different color.

Just Right
September 08, 2011

I bought the Meru hat primarily to use as a helmet liner while climbing or biking. The material is not bulky or itchy, so it works well as a liner and still provides the extra layer of warmth you need. Less bulk also means it stows away in your pocket nicely when you are heating up from whatever activity you are doing. I wanted a hat that is form fitting and had a lot of stretch to pull down over the ear lobes and the Meru meets this requirement. The soft material and relaxed stretch makes for a comfortable fit. Use my 21 3/4 head size as a guide. First time I used it was on a 21 hour climb. From ascending the glacier to belaying on the rock it seemed to be the right combination of warmth and comfort and performed just as I hoped. Used in conjuction with a neck gaitor of similar weight and material I was able to regulate my temperature by adding or removing as needed.

The best winter hat. PERIOD.
December 18, 2011

The best winter hat. trectchy. Warm. Covers all of my ears. I bought 4 of these, I love them so much. The price is a steal. This is the same material as Ibex' Energy tights. Perfect for winter cycling because the wind doesn't go thru my ears and chill me. Folds up very small so I can hold it in my pocket.

Fits Like A Glove!
January 21, 2012

I bought this same hat in Colorado last year on a ski trip, but it never made it back to Tennessee. Actually I forgot I bought it only having it few days before misplacing it. Was getting gear together for this years trip & I found the receipt where I bought it in a gear bag. I remembered what a sweet hat she was so I had to purchase another one. Best hat I've ever owned. Fits like it was tailored to my head. Extremely warm & stretchy too! I can pull it down over my ears & it stays put.

Pros: great fit, great quality, extremely warm, great looking, Cons: none

Nice lightweight wool hat
January 17, 2010

Very good quality wool hat. Not very bulky, would be good for outdoor cold weather activity or for casual wear when you want a simple hat that is not sloppy or thick. Comfortable to wear, it fits tight on your head without folding over or covering your eyes.

**What a great hat**
February 18, 2010

I just got this hat and just love it. I ordered the black one and it fit just perfect. The material and construction is worth the price. It not itchy at all and is very warm. Not heavy at all. I would say if your looking for a great hat to wear on a cool day or night this would be it.

One of the best hats
May 05, 2011

I am a runner and in the winter I use lots of hats for running. This one I got just in time for late spring run in the mountains and have to say that it is a very very good hat. It does not get too saggy, manages moisture very well, drys fast, and also looks good. Also - it is an all natural fiber and the hats works better then some of my icebreaker hats. I am huge Icebreaker fan but this hat is better then Icebreaker and works really well for any type of activity you may have.

Great beanie! I wear it running and under my cycling helmet in the winter. Also fits under my skiing helmet. I love this thing and I need to get another in case I ever lose it.

Quality hat
January 29, 2010

I was looking for a watchman's cap which is soft, warm, and not too loud. This is perfect! I have a big noggin, but this stretches to accommodate. I'll buy another. Typical high quality Ibex.

Wow! I love this hat
November 17, 2011

I really like wool but it's hard to find a light weight wool hat and I finally did. Fit's well, not so warm that I have to take it off every time I go indoors.

comfy stretchy hat
May 19, 2011

I love this hat because it is wool but not itchy, and because it covers my ears! Other brands are often too tight for me (at least women's-specific hats), but this one is great for the slightly larger than average noggin. It's got a lot of stretch, so I imagine it would be comfy on smaller heads, too.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use

Comfortable, well fitted
December 09, 2009

The cap/hat is very comfortable. Great worn alone or as a helmet liner due to its low profile. Good insulation and good quality. I'm very pleased.
