What's the Point?
What's the point of creating a beanie that doesn't cover your head properly? This must have been made for a toddler.
Hey Pamela, we're sorry to hear that this didn't fit. This beanie measures in at about 18.5" in circumference un-stretched, which should work for most but not everyone. You might find that the [Fun Hog Beanie ](https://www.patagonia.com/product/fun-hog-beanie/33470.html?dwvar_33470_color=GPST&cgid=mens-hats-accessories) works better for you, since it measures in at approximately 19.75".
We're sorry to hear this one was too tight, and we welcome you to return it. You might prefer our [Fun Hog Beanie or Everyday Beanie](https://www.patagonia.com/shop/mens-beanies). We'll reach out to you by email to offer further assistance. Thanks for taking a moment to provide your feedback, David!
Great hat, runs small
I am a male 5'8" 160lbs. I have a small head and often find Patagonia hats to be too big for me. I worried about this purchase after seeing on the model online. I received the hat today and too my pleasure, it fit my small head perfectly. I order the green clean climbing version. I was born in '72 so anything with 1972 goes straight ...

This was not expectant from Patagonia. The product was so small. Im pretty petite and it wouldn't fit me. It was so itchy and not breathable. Bummer
Hi Tori! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're very sorry to hear about the disappointment with the fit and material. Your satisfaction is always guaranteed so you're welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html). If you're interested in a softer and less snug beanie we'd recommend the [Fisherman Rolled Beanie](https://www.patagonia.com/product/fishermans-rolled-beanie/29105.html?dwvar_29105_color=BLK&cgid=root).
In the winter, I've got a beanie on for part of nearly every day. This one keeps my brains from freezing on windy ridges and is just grown up enough that it let's me run late into a casual meeting without it being completely obvious that I was late b/c I did another lap. For me, the fit starts out snug but stretches over time and a quic... Read Morek wash by hand in the sink tightens it up again.
I bought this hat first year they sold it in grey and I have used it from backcountry skiing to a casual piece and everything in between. Very nice fit and real good warmth even when soaked I hand wash it every fall and holds its shape Highly recommend this hat if you are looking for a no frills hat
Super warm and I love how it hugs my smaller than average head. Its so difficult for me to find beanies that dont fit my head loose and this one is perfect!! I love that its made from mostly recycled wool and not some random cheap fiber. I will be purchasing more in different colors
Wish they had more variety in colors.
I was very excited about this beanie but it is very small and rides up without covering my ears. It fits my young 5 year old well, but he wont wear it because it is too scratchy.
Hey Sam, we appreciate the feedback on the Brodeo Beanie. We'll share your thoughts with our design team. If you haven't already, you can begin the return process [here](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html).
too small and not warm enough
This is a supercute hat. I'm a small person (short, slim, small head) and the hat barely covers my ears. I have no idea how it fits a big human. Don't get me wrong, I like it. It is the right size to make my hair look good poking out from it when it's not too cold. But it is definitely not warm enough on its own in the winter. I need...

Soft & Warm
Great shape and fabric. A bit tight. Needs a bit of stretching to fit my 7 3/4 head. Keeps creeping up off the head. I'll keep at it!
Thanks, Patrick! And if that stretching doesn't help, please keep in mind we'll be happy to help you [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) it.
Warm and cute
This hat is warm and cute, and I like how it goes past my ears. However, it is kind of itchy. I would just wear a liner, but then it would be too warm. I'm thinking about sewing some thin fleece or something to the part that goes over the forehead. However, it is my go-to when I need to go outside for walking the dog or running when it's ...

Nice look; a little small
Its a great looking beanie but I prefer the better sweater hat thats thicker, warmer, and fits my fat head the best.
Thanks for the feedback on sizing, Andy! Please reach out if you'd like to return the Brodeo Beanie. We'll be happy to [help](https://help.patagonia.com/s/)!
Was looking for a warm beanie- this isnt it. Its too small and thin. Terrible purchase
We're sorry to hear that the fabric weight and warmth of this beanie has been such a disappointment. Please reach out to our Customer Service Team to discuss your options to return. We'll be happy to [help](https://help.patagonia.com/s/)!
Wish it was a little bigger
So I have a very large head. It fit but I wish the cut was a little bigger. Im also bald so I found it a little itchy out of the bag. Hopefully it softens up.
Hello Stephen! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're really sorry to hear that you found the beanie to be a bit small and itchy. We appreciate this feedback and we'll pass this along to our design team. Your satisfaction is always guaranteed so you're welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html).
Overall very comfortable. I got 3 of those, all shrank badly after washing (cold water setting). After washing, it fits a 4 years old head, material gets flimsy and all the stitches strech so bad, you can see through. Patagonia needs to rethink this item, could be so much better. The R1 beanie is amazing
Hello Naor, thank you for the review. We're very sorry to hear of this experience. All of our items are backed by our Ironclad Guarantee, so if the hat is not performing as you were expecting, feel free to send it back for a [warranty evaluation](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html). We'll share this feedback with the team, thank you for bringing it to our attention.
Was itchy on forehead not a soft material
Was very itchy against skin on forehead
Hey Raquel, we appreciate the feedback on the Brodeo Beanie. It could be that since the beanie is made from a wool/recycled nylon blend that you're having a reaction to the wool. Sometimes people have allergies with fibers like wool, so we'd recommend something different like the [Fisherman's Rolled Beanie](https://www.patagonia.com/product/fishermans-rolled-beanie/29105.html?dwvar_29105_color=NVYB&cgid=root), that is made from 100% recycled polyester yarn.
My favorite beanie!
I own a ridiculous amount of these. I must have had at least 10 in different colors. Sadly I lost a a few over the years. But it fits snugly so it will not pop off my head in windy conditions. And it's cozy and warm. And I love the colors and I love that it's doesn't have a big saggy bump at the top like some beanies. I like it to fi... Read Moret closer to my head.
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!
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.
We're so sorry to hear that this beanie isn't comfortable! No matter if it's the wool or nylon that is causing it, your purchase is covered by our Ironclad Guarantee so please reach out for assistance to return it. We'll be happy to [help](https://help.patagonia.com/s/)!
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...
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](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) this back to us!
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!
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.
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](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) 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!
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.
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](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) 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.
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](https://help.patagonia.com/s/) 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.
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](https://help.patagonia.com/s/article/Ironclad-Guarantee) it back to us.
Warm but way too tight. Very uncomfortable. I wear glasses and it pushed them against my head.
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](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html#searchterm=return). If you're interested in looking at a more loose fitting beanie of our we'd suggest the [Fisherman's Rolled Beanie](https://www.patagonia.com/product/fishermans-rolled-beanie/29105.html?dwvar_29105_color=BLK&cgid=womens-hats-accessories#tile-5=&start=1&sz=24).
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.
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](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html#searchterm=return).
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.
This is definitely not a one size fits all. very small in size. Looks like it was made for a toddler.
Hi Jeremiah! We're sorry to hear this Beanie was too small. If you'd like to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html#searchterm=return) it, you are more than welcome to. In the meantime, I would recommend checking the [Desert Sky Beanie]( https://www.patagonia.com/product/desert-sky-beanie/33415.html?dwvar_33415_color=HAGO&cgid=mens-hats-accessories#tile-66=&start=1&sz=84), [Backslide Beanie](https://www.patagonia.com/product/backslide-beanie/33400.html?dwvar_33400_color=BLK&cgid=mens-hats-accessories#tile-36=&start=1&sz=60), and [Glade Beanie](https://www.patagonia.com/product/glade-beanie/28886.html?dwvar_28886_color=HSOB&cgid=mens-hats-accessories) for some options with a larger fit.
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.
small and tight if your head is any bigger than average. i liked the material, just to tight.
Hans, we're sorry to hear the fit wasn't quite right for you. We'll be happy to [help](https://help.patagonia.com/s/) you choose a different hat or [return](https://help.patagonia.com/s/topic/0TO1L0000002yyTWAQ/returns-exchanges) this one so don't hesitate to reach out to us.
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.
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.
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.
