Unfortunately most Oiselle clothing doesn't fit me well (I have a long torso and prefer higher rise pants) but their accessories are spot on, including this beanie. It feels a little cool at first when the temp is below freezing, but once I start to move, it keeps my head perfectly warm without overheating. I normally prefer natural materials, but this fabric is wonderfully soft and breathable, and it actually seems to retain less odor than my merino buffs. My only complaint is the $10 flat rate shipping. This would be great for people who are ordering more expensive items, but for a couple of lightweight hats or buffs, it doesn't feel reasonable. Hoping they switch to paying per pound.
I love love this hat. A perfect hat for running or walking the dog. It kept my ears warm and stayed in place. Kudos to customer service as well. When I immediately placed the order I found an email with an additional discount. I immediately emailed Oiselle and received a response and credit to my account within a day. Outstanding products and outstanding customer service.
I had never heard of Oiselle before but after searching for a running hat online I came across the site. I bought this beanie for my winter runs in Rhode Island. It is really perfect - perfect weight, perfect dimensions, perfect color. Love it. Two more words : buy it.
I rarely leave reviews for products I purchase but felt compelled to leave one for this hat because I love it SO MUCH. This hat is perfection. It's large enough that it fits comfortably over my bun and my earbuds (Plantronics Backbeat Fit 3150--a little bigger than other models) and there is STILL room to spare. My head gets super hot when I run so I am rarely able to wear winter hats because they are too thick, but this hat is the perfect balance of material weight and breathability to keep my head the perfect temperature while running. I have worn it in temperatures ranging from low 40s to teens and have been perfectly comfortable at all times. If you're on the fence about this hat, just buy it. I now own three. Is that excessive? Maybe. But so is the love I feel for this hat.
I love love love this hat. When I first picked it up, the light fabric feel like it wasn't going to be as warm as it is, but it fits so snugly around my head that I've had no problems in weather from 20F-40F. It is the perfect hat because it stretches enough to fit a ponytail, but still remains tight around your head and doesn't slip.
This is the best hat for winter running I've ever purchased.
I lost all my hair from chemo three years ago and it has never come back. These hats have helped me so much. They are soft and lightweight and perfect for running (I'm a runner) or keeping my head cozy at night when I sleep. They are not too thick or heavy. Please never stop making these caps, Oiselle. In fact, the more color options, the better.
Along with being super soft and stretchy, this beanie actually fits my enormous head! Until now I have only ever owned running headbands because most hats sit about mid-ear level for me and won't go any further down. But this one has more than enough space, heck I could even still fit a bun into the hat and still have it go down to my eyes. I LOVE IT!!
