MarmotSpike Hat

Winter cardio companion.

Pull on the Marmot Spike Hat and head out to the trails for a heart-pumping skate ski. Although a frigid wind is blowing, your noggin will stay toasty, and the microfleece headband provides a little extra warmth and softness, and keeps the sweat from dribbling down into your eyes.

Another solid beanie

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

This is another solid beanie from Marmot. I find it effective down to about 15 or 20F. Below that I need to cover my dome with something a bit heavier. This style is a little more old school than some of their other beanies, and the colors don't match up quite as well with a lot of their shells.

Thanks for the reviews Adam! Super helpful to get this feedback out to the community.

Perfect!

    Bought this as a gift for my boyfriend. He says it's really comfortable, soft, and warm! It's a perfect thickness for chilly days on the ski slope.

    Made for a pinhead!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs small

    I only bought this based on a review that said it fits a large head. BS!!! It is the smallest winter hat that I have ever tried on. Sure, I have a large head at 7 7/8, but other winter hats fit fine. It's the last time I believe a review.

    Toasty noggin.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    I bought this hat in dark rust color and used it for a week straight during Spring snowboarding in Australia. Temperatures were mild around 25F to 35F with a fair degree of wind chill on the summit runs.
    The hat looks cool and I found it to be perfect for these conditions. Breathable and not too sweaty on the noggin. The outstanding feature is the microfleece headband inside which is a generous sized band that sits beautifully over the ears when you pull it down and need to get a bit toasty.
    Overall the product performs well and is very good value. Great beanie for mildly cold conditions.

    Toasty noggin.

    Good hat for the money, does what it needs to. Comfortable, warm, and looks good...

    Hat is as Advertised

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Not super warm, not windproof, doesn't manage moisture. The fabric is comfortable and it is useful when you want a light beanie for general purpose use. It is a nice classic construction, avoiding microfiber and just sticking to the basics. It does what it says it does, and its more a fashion statement and advertisement for Marmot than a piece of technical gear. I still like it though. It wasn't expensive and the color selection is nice.

    good hat

    Soft and comfortable, and warmer than north face beanies I have owned. Does all it's supposed to, and does it well!

    Best used for casual to mild condition

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    In my opinion, the hat is best used for casual to mild conditions. It will handle snow fall in small quantities and short duration but does eventually get wet if prolonged. It is extremely comfortable but is by no means wind or waterproof. However, since it doesn't claim to be, that is no surprise. The Navy Blue is true to color on the website and fits great. Pulled down to just above eye level, the hat sits slight above the top of my head. Essentially, this hat is identical in fit (Although slightly longer/not snug to top of my head) and function to the Marmot Shadow and Marmot Summit Beanie, both of which I have own/use. I am 5' 10", 155lbs, and wear a 7 3/8" Zephyr Fitted Baseball Hat for comparison.

    Great beanie!

    This is the first beanie I have ever worn that feels like it will stay on my head. Great size. The fleece band inside is a great bonus feature for added ear warmth. This is not a super warm hat but it looks great and fits my purpose for wearing running and around town.

    Stylish and Wicked Comfy

      This hat is so comfortable. The micro fleece on the inside is soft and keeps your head cozy. It looks great too. I had the brown and orange version (Raven?). The hat was stolen, but I would definitely buy another if it were available in the brown and orange.

      Amazing

        I got this hat for Christmas and wore it for skiing and around town. It wasn't itchy and it was incredibly warm. It looks awesome too. I would highly recommend this hat. Definitely worth $20.

          Nice and comfortable. The outer material does not wear and ball up like most beanies, while the inside material is a soft fleece that keeps your ears from freezing, without making you itch like crazy.

          Not as shown

            The cayenne red hat was not as shown in the photo, no blue lettering, more of a grey. Fit was adequate, but not very comfortable for an athletic fit.

              So stylin! Marmot impresses me again. Awesome hat in the cayenne color, really pops. This hat has a sweet fleece earband on the inside to keep your ears toasty warm. Get one!
