This beanie is very comfortable, very stretchy and warm. The beanie from top to bottom is about 9 in, and like a I said very stretchy and some what tight around the head so it should be very nice to wear goggles with, I guess we'll see this season.
Heres the deal with it being reversible, only look at what colors are on the beanie originally. Ignore the bottom photos, the colors that are on the outside of the beanie are the exact same as the ones on the inside. For example, I ordered the quarry, and the lines of gray become thicker towards the top, its just the opposite on the inside, the brown becomes thicker towards the top. Also theres tag on the inside but, its really easy to tear out if you prefer the reverse style. Also I noticed the burton tag on the outside isn't as long as the picture shows but that doesn't effect me.
I'll post the reversible comparison here. Overall a very nice, fitting beanie.
