Patagonia Brodeo Beanie

True To Size
October 18, 2021

Best for everything you do!

I love this hat! So comfy that I end up staying in it even after being outdoors. Perfect for this time of year.

Solid Beanie

I have a larger dome (7 3/8) this fits pretty solid. Warm but not too heavy or floppy. A little on the smaller side out of the bag, but after a few wears fits really nice. Goes with everything and packs super small.

October 1, 2021

Good quality

I expected the product to be softer than what it is but it's made of great quality. Seems slightly smaller than what I thought it'd be for a fit but I still need to stretch it out. Customer service was excellent when getting back to me about a replacement product.

Super warm

Super warm and looks great!

August 29, 2021

Great for a bald head

It is initially a bit small but does stretch well and keeps my bald dome nice and warm. Great hat and a great fit!

April 10, 2021

Too notch!

Great looking, comfortable headpiece. Runs a little tight for me, but I also have the worlds largest head, so Im not mad about it.

April 3, 2021

Great fit and warm

I love this one, the other one I ordered I had to give to my wife. This one fit just perfect.

March 1, 2021

Beautiful quality hat

It's warm, soft, well made, and fits perfectly

March 1, 2021

Super warm

The product is perfect

February 26, 2021

Looks really cut but pretty small

Looks really cute on but if you have a lot of hair like me its prone to popping off your head, doesnt cover your ears, and I think poor stitching design leads it to be too narrow towards the top forcing it to not wrap around your head properly. Such a shame because I do like the color and style but poor design makes it not functional enough to keep... Read More!

Very Warm

I have several beanies but this is the warmest of the bunch. Good looking but slightly tight. I would recommend this to anyone in colder climates wanting to keep warm.

February 24, 2021

Itchy Beanie

This beanie looks great but after about 10 minutes my head was itching. Yes, I wash everything I buy before wearing. I think it is the material that is itchy.

Beanie And My Big Head

After 48 years on this planet, I consider myself a wily veteran of headwear. This beanie fits my bulbous head perfect. I dont want to take it off. Its warm, its simple yet stylish. I never write reviews... ever, but I was so elated after donning this atop my dome that I had to praise the human that designed this. Bravo you... bravo...

February 1, 2021

Warm and comfy

Low crown and very comfortable. Feels warm and comfortable, even in the 20°s

January 29, 2021

Very warm

This is my go to beanie but it is a bit itchy on my forehead. I kinda wish it had some soft fleece on the inside but I will continue wearing it. It looks cute on and keeps me warm on cold mornings.

January 11, 2021

Ton's of Compliments Super Warm

This hat is perfect for cold weather. Dress up or dress down the snug fit of this hate will leave your head feeling nice and warm. I sometimes sweat in this hat because it keeps my head that warm. The material is very great quality. Highly recommended!!

December 12, 2020

Perfect Beanie

Im in love with this hat, the material is comfortable on my bald dome and its nice and warm, even on cold Montana winter nights. I bought another in a different color just to have another around. Cant recommend this hat enough!

November 25, 2020

Super warm.

Very warm beanie but it's runs a little on the small size. I feel like I have to really pull it down over my head. Still very good product though.

November 23, 2020

Love this beanie!

I love this beanie. It is warm, comfortable, and a perfect fit. An overall great product!

November 21, 2020


This hat was disappointing . At first it felt way too small, then after I stretched it to fit, it just felt loose and too small.

Thank you for taking the time to write us with your comments and we're sorry this doesn't seem to work fit wise. Please feel free to [send]( this back to us!

Very Warm

Got my Brodeo Beanie a couple weeks ago, and have already worn it twice. Both times hiking in 48 degree weather. Definitely runs on the small side. Im a girl with a smallish size head and its pretty snug. Might not work for large size heads though unless it can be stretched out a bit. Wearing it to Yosemite this weekend and its supposed to snow and... Read More weather in the high twenties, so Ill update after that. So far its great!

Runs very small

Runs very small. Dont buy this if you have a normal male sized head. It wont fit or cover your ears.

Hello Teva, we are sorry the fit did not work out on the beanie. You are welcome to [return]( it. We appreciate your feedback.

Super Warm

I love these beanies! I got the green and heather grey beanie. Super comfy and warm! Fit really favorite beanie from Patagonia.

July 19, 2020

Toasty hat

This hat has kept my head toasty warm while working and looks sharp. The length is a little short to cover my ears, a few more centimeters would give full coverage. Admittedly, I do have a pretty large head.

July 13, 2020

Good casual hat

This hat has been great for cool city nights in SF. It's comfortable but not as comfortable as some other knit hats I've had. I've haven't worn it out adventuring yet as I kind of want to keep it nice looking but I get the impression it won't breath super well.

June 17, 2020

Great product

Awesome beanie with a great design cant wait until winter comes around again.

April 8, 2020

Great Versatile Hat

quality weave, very warm, sweet patch options!!!

March 26, 2020

Warm and Comfortable

Warm and Comfortable for taking a walk on a cold winter day, or the morning run. Though let it air dry after a wash... I accidentally put mine in the clothes dryer.. and it shrunk, like a few sizes.

Response from Patagonia
April 14, 2020

We are so sorry to hear that this shrunk in the wash. That should stretch out after wearing it a few times, but if it doesn't, please feel free to [send]( it back to us as your satisfaction is always guaranteed. We appreciate you for taking the time to write us with your comments and we are wishing you many more cold winter days in your beanie!

Small Hat

The hat was horribly small. I cant imagine any adult human fitting such a small hat. I thought it was a joke. I think someone from Patagonia should try one on and see what everyone else has attempted to tell them. All other products have been great.

Response from Patagonia
April 10, 2020

We are so sorry that the hat was too small and thank you for the comments. We hear everyone's feedback and appreciate you taking the time to express this. Please feel free to [send]( this back to us.

Very, very small hat

The quality of this hat is great, and the patch is very nice, however - the sizing is WAY off. My child has a normal sized head, but this hat didn't even come to his ears. It is almost the size of a yarmulke. And at the price of 5.00 to return it, I am hesitant because the hat was 17.50. I am so disappointed.

March 30, 2020

Sorry to hear it didn't work out for you, but we really appreciate the great feedback, Holly. It looks like we were able to help you return the hat and our Accounting team is processing the credit now. Let us know if we can [help]( in any other way!

Brodeo "2.0" is a letdown

Got a brodeo beanie about 1-2 years ago. Loved the shallow depth fit and so did my wife, she kept stealing it! So I got her TWO for xmas. They changed the fit and the appealing feature (the shallow fit) is gone in both of them, and one is too small overall. If a fundamental design element is changed, so should the name so customers aren't buyi... Read Moreng under false pretenses. If you want a "normal" overpriced beanie, this'll do. If you have a Brodeo 1.0 beanie and want another like it, move along.

Response from Patagonia
January 30, 2020

Hello Eric! We're sorry you're disappointed with this, but we just want you to know that we have not changed the fit of this beanie since our Fall 2015 line when it used to be 2" shorter in length than it is now. We've noticed that after some wear, they will stretch out a bit so that might be it! If you're still unsatisfied with the fit after a couple of wears however, you are absolutely welcome to [return]( it back to us.

Toasty Head

This beanie kept my head toasty and was very well crafted. Keep up the great work.

December 31, 2019

Great hat. Warm and comfortable.

Great hat. Warm and comfortable. Love too that it’s made from reclaimed wool.

December 31, 2019

Old school wool

Purchased this hat first season they sold it and it has stood the time. Great no frills look and easily transfer from aerobic to casual but for sure more of a around the house /town hat.

December 31, 2019

I love my new hat.

I love my new hat. It is comfortable, warm, and it looks great!

Brians' Brain Buddy Beanie

I find it both fashionable and functional. It warms my brain allowing my brainwaves to freely roam within my skull while experiencing extreme Alaska cold like only we can get here in Fairbanks.

December 27, 2019


Warm but way too tight. Very uncomfortable. I wear glasses and it pushed them against my head.

Response from Patagonia
January 21, 2020

Hi Michelle, thanks for taking the time to write us a review! We're sorry to hear that the beanie is too tight. Your satisfaction is always guaranteed so you're welcome to [return]( If you're interested in looking at a more loose fitting beanie of our we'd suggest the [Fisherman's Rolled Beanie](

December 26, 2019

Loved it!

Looked even better than it looked online!

December 25, 2019

Should be marketed to children

Beanie is to small for adults. Not enough material used in the design. Then the issue of price. Why dose it cost the same amount as the Powder town beanie and is half the material. If I was able to see the beanie in person I would never buy it.

Response from Patagonia
January 16, 2020

Thanks for your feedback, Patrick! We're sorry to hear the Brodeo Beanie was a bit too small for you. If you'd like to return it, you are welcome to [here](

December 24, 2019


Down here in the South we call it a “toboggan”. But beanie or toboggan, I haven’t not worn it since it arrived. Matches anything else aesthetically, functional, and comfortably warm, this has been a perfect pairing to the recycled cashmere scarf that was part of the same order. Thank You Courtney, and Thank You Patagonia.

December 22, 2019

If it's Patagonia - pretty much I love it

I ordered some new beanies for the winter here in Phila and they are perfect. They fit well, are warm and they cover my ears just enough to stay warm but not so much that I can't hear! I love them.

December 22, 2019

Good but...

I love the color and fit but the hat can become itchy after wearing it for awhile.

December 21, 2019

5 star!

Great color, and fit!

Best Beanies

These are my favorite beanies, just my personal opinion!

My winter hat!

This is my "go to" winter hat! I have a small head and this is a fantastic fit. Warm, breathes well and well made too.

December 15, 2019

Too Small

This is definitely not a one size fits all. very small in size. Looks like it was made for a toddler.

Response from Patagonia
January 8, 2020

Hi Jeremiah! We're sorry to hear this Beanie was too small. If you'd like to [return]( it, you are more than welcome to. In the meantime, I would recommend checking the [Desert Sky Beanie](, [Backslide Beanie](, and [Glade Beanie]( for some options with a larger fit.

December 14, 2019

High quality beanie with an odd fit

The look and feel of the beanie are such that it’s clear that this is a high quality product. My main feedback is that the length is unusual and sits in this weird place between a skull cap and most other beanies. I wish this beanie was at least 1” taller/longer, as it would be just about perfect at that length.

December 14, 2019

Beanie , tumbler, socks

All great products in use currently and shipping was great and in time thank you again

December 12, 2019

Balkan Blue is a great color

I love the beanie. Contrary to other reviews , when it is rolled up it covers my ears.

December 11, 2019

Very nice beanie

Fit me very well! No itching. Very warm.

December 9, 2019

Sweet hat

Very comfortable and not itchy.

December 9, 2019


Beanie is super comfortable and light weight...

December 8, 2019

Beanie fish logo

Very well made and very warm. Logo is well sewn in. I wish it was slightly bigger to cover my ears but I made it work.

December 7, 2019

Robinson's Beanie

like the fit; like the color; like the 100% wool; like being warm; like style; a cold weather item but may go 12 months;

December 6, 2019

Small fit

small and tight if your head is any bigger than average. i liked the material, just to tight.

Great fit, best winter hat ever!

December 2, 2019

great beanie, despite high cost

I bought 5 of these, as I am surrounded by thieves and I lost stuff. I lots two last year. I think Patagonia needs to lower prices, but who am I to say -- when I have bought and worn other beanies -- as I said, I lose stuff -- I always miss my brodeo beanies. I highly recommend the product if you (1) got money to burn, or (2) are addicted to brodeo... Read More beanies and are willing to give up other life necessities to have one.

Warm and well made

A warm well-made beanie that fits great.

New favorite beanie

Great fit and warmth

November 22, 2019

Beanie Is Tight

Beanie is tight to head and doesn’t quite cover the ears, to my liking. I should have ordered a knit ski cap style hat.

November 22, 2019

Good Quality but Weird Fit

It certainly seemed like a well made product, but the fit was off for me. It was pretty short (from crown to cuff), which left a lot of forehead and ears exposed. Since the cuff is designed in, you couldn't just adjust the length by shortening the cuff. Unfortunately I had to return this one.

A bit small but I’m okay with that

November 8, 2019

It’s warm

I used this beanie as soon as I got it on a backpacking trip where the temps were below zero with wind gusts. My head was probably the warmest part of my body! If you have a tall head it probably won’t be long enough for you but I think it mifht stretch out.

November 5, 2019

Great fall hat

Great for cool fall days fishing for steelhead on the Salmon River! Also warm enough for cold winter conditions.

November 4, 2019

Small but fun!~!

Runs super small, but a nice lifestyle piece!

November 4, 2019

looks good, fit is smaller than usual for PTG winter hats

Style is great and I'll pretty much buy anything with a trout on it... this one fits on the small side compared to other patagonia winter hats. It doesn't squish my head hard enough to cause a headache, but there's zero chance of fitting a baseball hat underneath this one, and smushes sunglasses into the side of your head/ears during... Read More extended wear. I usually wear a 7 1/4 in fitted hats, and would not recommend this one if you have a large head.

October 28, 2019

Fits great. Keeps me head

Fits great. Keeps me head warm. Love it.

October 26, 2019

Perfect cuffed beanie

Perfect fit for people with a normal size head that like a beanie that stays snug wear after wear. Can you please bring back all the colors without the giant patches though? It was my favorite hat of all time until the patches were added, it’s just too much.

October 8, 2019

A Little Snug, But Worth the Purchase

The Brodeo Beanie doesn't afford you very much wiggle room. The hat is a very snug fit, which is unlike most conventional beanies which are a little more relaxed. Outside of the fit, I love the design, and it is very comfortable.

September 17, 2019

A little small, but cozy

I have a "normal" sized head and find this beanie to be a little too snug for my liking. It's very soft and warm, though, so I keep it around for really cold days.

May 8, 2019


I lost my orange one I had gotten at a store in Pittsburgh. So happy that they had this teal one. It is the best hat for winter in general. Handles everything from walking downtown to snowshoeing the in woods. Love it!

May 5, 2019

Fit is small, and it is a little bit itchy

Cute hat, but barely works for a high school girl. Fit is small and "it is a little bit itchy", she says.

January 13, 2019

Too small and thin.

I'm a big fan of Patagonia. This is the only patagonia product i own that didn't meet expectations. I agree with other reviews that it is too small. I have to pull it almost all the way down to cover my ears. So that means most of head and ears are covered by one layer of the hat, and the hat is thin. The hat hardly protects at all agains... Read Moret wind. One final comment about the wool products in general, why aren't products 100% wool? thanks!

January 2, 2019


The hat fits perfectly my head. It just doesn't cover my ears, but I guess that this is the hat's style. The color is great.

February 8, 2018

A great hat...for a baby.

The older version of this hat (1 or 2 years ago?) was perfect! Now the sizing is so ridiculously small,it should only be sold to children. I should have listened to the scores of other reviews that warned of this new pre-shrunken design. With so many people complaining,I hope Patagonia will fix the problem.

January 7, 2018

Okay hat. Fits small and not super warm

It looks like this hat would be warmer than the rest with its folded over cuff,but it's not. It also fits small so I constantly seem to have to pull it down to cover more of my ears. It's certainly functional,but don't expect it to be as warm as it looks.

December 31, 2017

Too small

I like the idea of this hat and the colors,but when it arrived and I put it on,it's too small. Barely covers ears. I can roll down the fold,but then the aesthetic of that hat diminishes. They need to have someone there be in charge of universal sizing. A lot of Patagonia's products vary wildly from size to size.

November 30, 2017

Unfortunately small.

This used to be my absolute favorite hat,until I lost it. The new one I ordered is significantly smaller than the one I had previously. I don't think my head is very big,but it barely comes down to cover my ears. It's not itchy,and fairly warm,just not the size it needs to be.

March 25, 2017

Warm,not itchy

I've owned the burgandy one for just over a year. It was a little snug at first but became more comfortable over time. I hand wash it and line dry. I live in Michigan and it gets hella cold here in the winter and this hat has never disappointed me. It's also soft. Winner,winner,winter hat dinner.

February 1, 2017

Very small

If you have a smallish head this is for you. If you have a normal sized head then this wont fit you too well.

January 21, 2017

Almost perfect

I purchased this beanie in mid to late 2015. The fit was a bit snug,but over time came to fit nicely. I was painting a series of wall signs outdoors,and boy did this beanie keep me warm. The quality was great,felt like it would last a really long time. I really liked the beanie,but I found 2 downsides to it. The "break in" for it to adapt... Read More to your head takes a bit under a week. Secondly,I washed the beanie and it shrunk,and refuses to size back up- don't know if that's an error on my part for washing/not looking at the label beforehand. Overall,would recommend it,just wish it was not so snug.

December 24, 2016

The old one was better,and larger?

Preferred the old Merino one. Understand using recycled,but the new version is smaller in size.
