Questions & Reviews
Okay, so it's just a hat. How excited can anyone get over just a hat?
Lots -- really!
This arrived as a product donation from Skimo Co for a skimo race series.
I tried it on out of curiosity ... and immediately started scheming for a new award category that I could win!
(Fortunately I'd just turned 50, so I was pretty sure I would win the "fastest 50+ racer in top ten" award.)
Seriously (though all that really was serious), although this is a basic beanie in outward appearances, it has a more complex construction than many most basic-looking beanies, and hence fits better (especially for staying put).
So it's slim enough to go underneath a race helmet, yet also fits well -- and looks good -- for walking around, nordic skiing, etc.
(Note that I received the basic black color with red accents, not the more flashy neon green/yellow.)
