A beanie is a beanie right? Not in my experience. After trying hat over hat I have finally found the best: the Dome Perignon by Mountain Hardwear. You can lose a lot of heat from your head but with this beanie your brains won’t freeze.
The hat is made with Gore-Windstopper making it your new all around use beanie. The stitching and detail in the design really beat the rest. If your not a helmet fan while skiing, this hat works great even with snow coming down because it blocks moisture to keep your noggin’ dry. It’s not waterproof, but compared to other lids it reigns superior.
Has a soft inside and once you put this thing on get ready for the warmth. Imagine a down jacket for your head but without the down. My only warning is the sizing. I wear a medium helmet and the size medium works well for me in this hat. However I have heard a ton of sizing complaints with the large saying it is HUGE. So consider sizing down a notch.
All your other beanies will shy away to the corner with envy when you come home with the Perignon, prepare accordingly.
