I was pretty skeptic about a "summer beanie" as I live in the South and it gets pretty warm here. Surprisingly, though, it keeps my head cool and it's not an issue in the sun. The beanie itself fits well for a beanie, though I do wish there were a little more room to make it a slouchie beanie. I still really enjoy it and recommend it.
These are amazing. Perfect weight for the heat, it is going to be hot this weekend.
The fit is great. The quality is questionable. Upon arrival the metal label on the beanie was hanging by a literal thread....which then fell off leaving a hole in the beanie. The addition of the metal label was probably not the best idea seeing as how the fabric is already flimsy and thin. Would return it but it doesn't' seem worth the hassle at this point.
Soft, comfy, somehow is warm enough for cool weather & light enough for warm. Love it.
