The Backcountry.com Alta Beanie always knows the best way to beat the powder-mania red snake, sneak into the Rustler after hours, and crash a party at the Ben Hame using only a turtleneck and a toothpick. Spacecraft's master craftspeople whipped up this warm acrylic beanie in collaboration with Backcountry's design team in order to honor the 700-inch mecca of LCC. And when a 40-inch dumper leaves you sleeping in the halls of the Alta lodge next to half the East Coast, this smooth lid will help you feel just as comfy and relaxed as a quick poach-session in the hot tub at the Peruvianï¿½monnnneeeyy!
Plenty of space to keep an air gap up top or pull down for complete coverage. Warm & fits comfortably even when pulled down to eye level. I have a smaller noggin and haven't made it to a resort yet, so I don't know if it will be as solid on the slopes for me as others are hoping at speed, being that it can stick up pretty high. Very stylish, cream and green colors are true to pic.
However you pronounce it, this is a thick, solid, acrylic beanie that keeps it's shape really well. Tight fitting so it should be great skiing, but so far I've only warn it around town. I have the cream & emerald color which looks as it's described not so much as retro turquoise looking as what is in the above photograph.
It was cold on a few of my commutes as of late...And this beanie was comfortable and kept my head toasty...Looking forward to using this baby for skiing...(I have already been loving my Reversible Goat Beanie for skiing) So I figure why should this toque be any different..(Toque) I am Canadian Eh! Okay I am not funny....(I tried)
This is a sick beanie. Super comfortable and cozy. Great material for cold days and is a good all around hat to chill in. Haven't skied in it yet, so don't know how well it is on the slopes. I think it'll good, but I can't be sure.
...but I do have a large head. As Liz says the fit means it won't fly off when you turn the speed up. Also looks fantastic in the teal colour. Also keep my (bald) head warm. Nice.
This beanie is nice, because it isn't super tight..enough room so you don't get migraines. Color is accurate..at least for the green one..
Spacecraft is a great company and I was excited to find this after my boyfriend lost his old Spacecraft bobble beanie a year ago. The problem is, this one slipped off his head constantly and didn't have any lining/thicker material around the bottom to hold it in place. As a result, the hat just kept sliding off so we returned it.
