Great Hat
December 30, 2009

I wore this hat nearly ever day on a recent, two week trip to Utah and Colorado. I love it. The only reason for not giving it five stars, is that I'd love to see a version that looks and fits like this hat, but is also windproof (i.e., Gore Windstoper). I wore it skiing a couple days and on the colder windy days you definitely feel the wind coming through the hat. Its not a complaint about the hat, but this hat doesn't fully cover my ears, so on super cold days the bottoms of my ears got a little cold.


Over all a very tightly made and warm hat

Fit is tight but not too tight. Covers your ears well and keeps your head warm. Construction is top quality and I will be purchasing an other in Black - I have the blue. Because of the wool material used it makes a great workout and after workout hat - if you don't mind getting it a little sweaty. Overall I have had it for 3 months and I wear it often as I have a shaved head.

This hat is the perfect combination of warm, fast drying wool but doesn't itch because of the wonderfully soft fleece lining! Love it!

too tight for my noggin
January 17, 2011

This is a decent quality beanie but I have an issue with how small it is (ordered a large size). It does not cover my ears and feels tight on my head, so I had to return it.

Pros: Build quality, Cons: Bad design, Low performance

Super Warm!

Great for chilly mornings and brisk mountain air. Perfect fit and style. The soft fleece lining means no itching which I love. All around a great cap. I might even consider buying one in very color.

Flurry Beanie
April 06, 2012

I like my new Flurry Beanie! The color is great and it is warm. The downside is it doesn't fit tight around my ears so it won't be warm enough when it is very cold and windy out. It also fits a little above the ears. It's perfect for a cold morning walk but not for stormy weather. For the price it was a good buy.

Pros: Great value, Cons: Bad design

This is a great beanie.
December 09, 2009

I really like this and will be buying more. I love how it fits my large head, the fleece lining is brilliant, and it actually keeps my head and ears warm. I recommend this one, especially if you have a large head like myself.

Great Beanie!
December 20, 2011

These are great beanies! I have the green and black and love them. They fit close to the head and have a great no-itch fleece lining. My favorite beanies by far!

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance

Awesome design
March 08, 2008

Fully fleece lined, extremely comfortable, warm, and very well-designed. Hands down my favorite beanie. I wear medium in OR's Seattle Sombrero and Helios Sun hat but the L/XL beanie was a perfect fit. Highly recommended

Great Fit

Great beanie, nicer than a simple fleece hat. And it can dress up better than fleece too.

great little beanie
December 31, 2010

It looks cool, the color is great (got the blue). It is short, barely covers the tops of the ears, but that is how it was designed, intentionally. It is a different look then the usual beanie that fully covers the ears. Turns out, it is really plenty warm enough down to at least the mid-20's and the ear exposure does not bother me. The hat is fully lined by fleece (unlike most, which only have a fleece band around the ears) so no wind gets to your head. I would not wear this for long periods of time in below 20F temps, because your earlobe will freeze, but other then that it is super warm- actually better then the others for the top of your head, where most of the heat escapes. So if you are outside for an hour or two in any weather, it's fine, and it'll be good all day above 20 or 25F. Like I said, surprisingly the ear exposure is not such a big deal-- when I tried the hat on I immediately got the RMA form set to return the thing, but I tried it out and was quite pleasantly surprised. And it looks cooler with a little ear showing-- sexy, man-- chicks dig a little ear, y'know what I mean?

Pros: Build quality, Performance, sexy you will get chicks

Order a size up. I am a small petite woman and this hat was just too small for me. Sending it back for larger size. I would hate to get caught in a real flurry with my ears not covered.
