Nice Transitional Hat
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I bought this beanie at the tail end of a MN winter. There's a season here -- stretching from late March to May -- which isn't really winter or spring. It can be 50° and bright one day, then (like today) a mix of slush and stinging hail.
The hat is great for this time of year. It's not a hefty wind-blocker at all, but this means it feels soft and light while still warming my head. It rolls up without too much bulk, for easy tucking into a bag or what have you when not in use. Looks-wise, it has a simple weave and no glaring branding. Worn rolled at the bottom, it's like a watch cap; when unrolled, it has a funky, slouchy look (my preference with this hat).
