Sherpa Pile Beanie

Kinda Small
January 10, 2020

Sherpa Pile Beanie

I have just returned this beanie because it is way too small for my son's head and even mine (his mom). It is made of a fabric that does not have any give at all. I wish I had paid more attention to the reviews because a couple of them did mention this problem! Otherwise very cute!

Super Hip Beanie - Fast Shipping

This beanie is better than it looks online. Came super fast. Turned out to be a perfect gift for son inlaw.

Sherpa beanie- small

Loved everything about the texture of the beanie. However it has very little stretch and was too small for both male recipients. I ordered a large/xlarge...

Warmth and Style

I bought two Sherpa Pile Beanies for Christmas gifts. One for my wife and the other for my daughter. They raved about the beanies for its warmth and style.

A+ for style; not so great for those of us with giant heads...

I received this hat for Xmas. My wife is well aware of the challenges of buying me hats. My head is just really large. Still, most of the time the Patagonia X/XL size gets it done. Not so much with this one I'm afraid. It is very tight on me, and I wear glasses which makes it worse. This hat sits on top of my head but I can't pull it over... Read More the ears, which defeats the purpose of a winter hat. Too bad because I love the style. It will go back. Just be aware if your head is very large (7 7/8 is my hat size). This hat probably won't fit you either.

Beautiful, soft and distinctive, but much smaller than expected. Bought 8 as gifts but needed to return them because the L/XL was way too small for the average bean.

Crazy beanie. Love it!!

Super fun, warm beanie. Usual Patagonia quality.

If you have a small head you'll love this hat and look like you're ready to command an army of Russian bears in Siberia.

If you are anywhere around a 7 5/8" head or larger I would avoid this beanie, I am not able to pull it on my head without significant effort and stretching which results in an unwearable tightness level. This was the L/XL.

This hat is EPIC. Super warm and cozy, and it looks great too! I get compliments every day because the fluff is real.

I bought the L/XL size hats. I thought the hats would have some room to stretch but they don't. Way too tight for my head, felt like a vice around my head. Returned the next day.

Snug fit

Love this hat, but it fits super snugly. It presses my sunglasses into my head, which gets uncomfortable. My head measures 22-1/2", and I selected size L/XL. The tag inside the hat says Large. I've been doing everything I can think of to stretch this hat out. I just need a tiny bit more room in this hat. I am bald, but if I had hair I&#x2... Read More7;d probably find this hat too small and would have to return it. I would definitely recommend this hat to anyone whose head circumference is 22" or less.

I like it, but...

This sturdy, warm beanie is great, but it is a little tight. I don't have a particularly large hear, nor do I have a thick mane of hair...and yet the largest size is still a bit tight for me. I will keep it and wear it and enjoy it. But some folks might find the sizing problematic.

Warm & Pretty Hat

I wanted a black hat and this one is very warm and made from recycled fibers.

i love the sherp but our weather has turned warmish in the 30s and I get too hot! I can’t tell if that is why it gets a little itchy in there but I think it is.

Medium is actually a small

Way to small so I gave it to my daughter

Great Beanie!

As I expected, this hat is terrific and warm! FYI, if you have a medium sized head, order a larger hat than you think you need. There is not a lot of stretch.

Sherpa pile hat

Warm, flattering and fun to wear. I purchased the small/medium as I usually take a medium size in women's hats. It is snug but comfortable - really enjoy it.

Fleece hat

Very nice made hat and I love the style of it one big appearance issue that is putting Patagonia mark on a tasteless area should be inside.

Perfect Purchase

As someone allergic to wool, I have spent years trying on winter hats and never found one that didn't make me look foolish. I love the Sherpa Pile Beanie. I took a chance and ordered two in different colors. Count me very happy.

Great fitting

I live my new hats they are high quality and fit perfect!

runs SO small

I immediately bought this when I saw it, because I love the high pile fleece look! I ordered the small/medium (I have a fairly small head, I'm usually a size small in most hats, and definitely never a large). The S/M was SO small/tight. So I bought the L/XL and still, fairly tight with absolutely no stretch in the band making it pretty uncomfo... Read Morertable. Returning the L/XL too unfortunately, this one just didn't do it. Sad :(
