I'm a Phase fan. I love the shirts so I got a Phase AR Hoody when they came out. Fantastic! Then I had to try the beanie. A couple of days after getting it I took it out for a little spin (26.2 miles). It was great. Large enough to cover the ears. Great for cool and cold weather aerobic activities because it provides warmth but you don't overheat easily. The construction is interesting. The stitching and four darts form a U-shape open at the forehead. Not sure exactly what that is designed to accomplish. Even with it pulled snug the darts tend to form little points, but I don't have any hair to fill it out, and it's certainly not as goofy looking as the 6-dart Rho LTW construction. I'm square in the Medium size range and bought a S/M; it seems slightly tight at times, but having it any looser might be a mistake. Slight qualms about the looks and sizing aside, it's a superb beanie because it's so light, is stashable anywhere, and, most of all, provides good temperature regulation.
