I just got back from a four-day canoe trip in the North Cascade mountains and brought along my Pocket 200 beanie "just in case". The weather turned out to be a bit cooler than expected so my beanie got a lot of use. My favorite thing about this beanie was that while it was super warm and cozy, it wasn't constrictive. I end up going with a cold head a lot of time because certain beanies are too tight on my head and cause pressure headaches. This beanie was so comfortable, I actually forgot that I was wearing it! Super lightweight, warm, and it packed up very small which was great for shoving in a pocket when not needed.
I only gave 4 stars since the stitching is coming out already around the brim with just a couple wears and no wash but that's something that I can easily fix at some point.
I bought one of these two years ago to run in during the winter. It worked great for that, but one winter eve I decided to wear it to bed (I keep it cool in the house at night and use a warm down comforter). This beanie is fantastic as a sleep hood!
So I had to buy a second one to use for running. That was fine until this year - as the weather cooled it became my go-to headgear when doing anything outside. It just feels great on those cool mornings and evenings.

I bought first one just because it was on sale, but now I bought one for my wife. My mother liked it as well, so she bought one for herself.
I usually carry it with me just in case it is chilly outside. It is so tiny that I sometimes forget that it is in my pocket.
Good for exercising in cool weather.
I live at 7,000 feet and even when it is nice during the day, the nights are chilly. I was looking for a small, warm hat that fits my big noggin and this is great for that. Don't really notice it in my vest pocket. I may pick up another so I don't forget it in my other coat pocket!
Great lightweight beanie, awesome for layering on extra cold ski tours. I keep this in my ski and camera pack at all times in case the temp suddenly drops, and hardly know it's there because it folds up nice and small. Love the anti-stink merino factor, and the reversible color change is a nice touch.
I got mine to replace the helmet liner that I lost. Though this is slightly too big for my pea head, it's a great weight liner. In a pinch, I even stuck it in my kids jacket as a facemask. It's super soft, comfy, fits well. Great item!
Got this for running on cold days. It works great and I love that it is reversible. It is not bulky. If you warm up and need to take off easily fits in pocket or can be tucked in a waist band.
Fits perfectly great for running
Love it but it doesn't cover all of my ears. Great to wear around the house but I can't take it hiking because half my ears would complain.
