Merino Beanie

Out of stock



Anyone who says, "a hat is just a hat," has obviously never worn one made of Merino wool. This is not just any Merino- we actually made our sheep wear itchy and uncomfortable beanies throughout their lives so they could better understand what we go through. Their empathy obviously paid off, since we can honestly say, this is the best hat we have ever worn.

Merino Beanie is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great look but too thin Number one reason for this purchase was the look/design of this beanie and it didn't let me down. The stitching is great and great looking, overall look is appealing, hands down the best looking beanie I own. Sadly though, thats the only positive I have to say about it after about a weeks worth of use. I really thought the beanie would be thicker than it is based on it being used for "extreme low" temps. But unless I'm wearing something over it and using this beanie as a base layer, there is no way this will keep my head warm in the extreme low temps. Now I say that coming from someone with a shaved head, maybe someone with a full set of hair would say otherwise. But living in WI and having a shaved head, sadly this beanie by itself just won't do for me. The other issue I find with this beanie is how itchy the stitching across the front is on my forehead. If I were to try and improve this beanie, I would double the material and maybe use that second layer on the inside as a liner between the stitching and occupants head. Also I would embroider the badlands skull and logo, as the skull logo on the front is already starting to come off only after a weeks use. Final thoughts, if your looking for a lightweight beanie, this is is the one to get. But be prepared to use it as a base layer or going with something much heavier if you're going late season hunting. Either way I am keeping this beanie as I mainly wanted it for the looks, but will be looking for something warmer for late hunting season.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Warm I bought this expecting to just wear it underneath another beanie, but unless it's in the single digits I have found that is not needed. It's just that warm. I have used it for one full season of hunting, plus just wearing out and about. It has solid high quality construction and shows no signs of coming apart. I saw another review state that it was too tight on their head, and I could see that being an issue if you have a larger head. I wear a fitted hat size of 7.25 and it fits me comfortably. Really, the only negative thing I can find is that the logo's peel off very easily since they are just heat pressed on. 3/4's of the skull logo, and a few of the Badlands letters have already peeled off. That's not a deal breaker for me though, as they are just cosmetic, and do not affect its functional use.

Is it waterproof?

Asked by: Nic1
No, the Merino Beanie is not waterproof. If you want something waterproof to cover your head, I would recommend our Rain Gear jackets that have hoods. Either the Alpha or the Exo Jackets would be excellent choices. Don't hesitate to give us a call or shoot us an email if you have more questions and we will gladly help you! 1-800-269-1875 or

Is there sizing for this? I have a small head and was wondering the measurements.

Asked by: Angus
Hey Justin, This beanie is one size fits most. I would say the smaller head, the better fit for this piece, as it is designed to be snug to keep as much heat as possible in. If you have further questions, don't hesitate to give us a call or shoot us an email and we will gladly help you out! 1-800-269-1875 or
