the S/M was kinda small and the L/XL was kinda big. I think you really need 3 sizes. Like the material though
We appreciate your feedback on the fabric and sizing. Our Better Sweater fleece material has very little (if any) stretch and you might prefer a wool/nylon blend like our [Women's Honeycomb Knit Beanie](https://www.patagonia.com/product/womens-honeycomb-knit-beanie/195699277625.html). We'll reach out by email to follow up with you. Thanks for the review, Kristen!
Excellent hat... sizing is way too big!
While I did like the hat.. and they are very tough to find and my locale Cambridge location, I had to return it as it was way to big for me. I ordered a L/XL based on the website size chart and previous Patagonia purchases. My hat size is 7 1/2 to 7 3/8 depending on the hat fit. This hat was so large it would fall off if I leaned over. Unless your ... Read Morehead is very large, order the smaller size.
A hat that fits!
Finally, a hat that fits my very large head! I normally wear a US size 7 7/8 or 8 hat and finding hats that fit me has always been a chore. I was very excited to get this hat when I noticed it was listed as having a L/XL size. It does not disappoint in being comfy, warm, and roomy. If you have a large head or a lot of hair this is definitely the ha... Read Moret for you.
Love the quality of the Better Sweater line up and wanted to love this hat too - but the sizing is way off - the L/XL is Huge
Hello Jake, we're sorry to hear the beanie ended up being too big. If you're interested in a beanie with a smaller fit, we'd recommend our [Beanie Hat](https://www.patagonia.com/product/beanie-hat/28860.html).
A family affair
Somehow when I lose a Patagonia hat even years later I know exactly where I left it although I know Ill never be able to retrieve it. I just hope the finders needed them and put them to work. A few of those lost lids were better sweater hats, but the grey one Ive had since around 2015 has always stuck by me. My son is now 2 1/2 so in ceremonial fas... Read Morehion Ive handed it up to him (not down, since reusing anything is a positive) and replaced it with this spiffy new model. Replacing the rim trim with a doubled-over cuff opening is a clever upgrade which makes it overall more comfy than the previous, and warmer over the forehead and ears. The additional thickness also makes it feel more substantial in-hand which neutralizes my gripe about the MSRP increase. The value isnt a question due to the build quality, comfort, and Forge guarantee, plus my cost-per-wear will be extremely low since I plan to rock it for life now that my wife makes me organize my ish so I dont lose it. My one teensy weensy gripe is the P-6 logo is too big, it used to be smaller and subtle now its as big as the one on jackets. The good thing is its on the right side if you wear the seam to the back as usual so you dont have an overload of logos on one side. While Im at it, the reflective P-6 logo should be the standard for all apparel, not just Houdinis. The lil reflective fitz ridge line is just a bit thicker than the usual white stitching so nobody except weirdos like me will notice, and it adds an element of safety, especially for kids gear. Ive digressed, hats dope
too big for my small little head
I was looking for a tighter beanie hat. the small was too big, guess I need a kids size. I wear a small helmet too. but when the hat is pulled down tight to the top of my head, the band is almost covering my eyes. I would have to wear it with the lid sticking too high on my head which looks dorky. I got it on sale and like the color, I am going to ... Read Morewash and dry it and see if I can get it to shrink.
A great hat!
Received as a gift in 2019. I rock a shaved pate, so my dome responds to temperature fluctuations, wind, and weather more than a coiffured individual. I have a larger than average head, and the L/XL is snug, but not unbearably so at all. It's warm, soft, and cuts the wind. Has just a hint of slouch to look relaxed. Love it!
Better Sweater Beanie review
The Better Sweater Beanie is a great winter season hat that keeps the head warm and dry during the cold weather. The lower half of the beanie is folded and double knitted sewn, folding into itself within the interior increasing it's comfort during the day and making it easier to slide off or on the head. The upper interior has been puffed up t... Read Moreo increase heat absorption that is also very comfortable and soft. This is a great product that is well made and durable.
Overall Great Beanie
If there were a way to give it 4.9 I would ONLY because I wear a 71/4 fitted and I ordered the S/M size and it fits slightly small. That or I have overly-large, cartilaginous Dumbo ears. Yeah, middle school was tough. I’m not gonna let it affect my attitude on this review though. But fr fr it could be larger. Maybe I could grow out a Mohawk or some... Read More other equally as edgy haircut or something to distract from the ears?? But then all that hair and the ears in the beanie at once? This beanie isn’t ready for something like that though. All of that aside it looks great and is warm. -Lovemypat_hat69
