This beanie is the beanie that I will wear snowboarding all winter long. It's lined with fleece on the inside so if you're really working up a sweat it will absorb a bit of the moisture. It fits my head perfectly. Snug enough to stay on my head if I eat it...but definately not too tight. The weave is beautiful and it's the perfect size to keep my head and ears warm.
I ordered this midweight crew and the Burton one to see which one fit better. This Dakine crew is made out of clingy-er material and runs a lot smaller than the Burton one. It's also not something that you can throw on with a pair of jeans. It's definately an underlayer ONLY. The logo is beautiful and the shirt is very nice and probably more efficient at keeping one cool when on the slopes. It was just too tight and constricting for me.
This beanie is very cute for hitting the clubs or chillin at the lodge. It perches right on top of your head and doesn't cover your ears at all. Very stylish but not really useful if you're only interested in keeping your head warm.
Perfect thickness...not too clingy and very breathable. I ordered this one and a Dakine midweight. The Dakine shirts defintely run a lot smaller than the Burton and are a lot more form fitting. This shirt can be worn as an underlayer or with jeans. It may run a bit on the big side...so if you're looking for something really clingy and form fitting I'd suggest going with the Dakine midweight rather than this one.
