February 18, 2023

Great product

Bought as a liner to my ski helmet. Runs a little large but works great. Would definitely buy again

February 14, 2023

great beanie

warm, snug and works as a layer under helmet or hood or standalone for high output activity

February 13, 2023

Perfect in Every Way

Love this beanie! I wear it by itselfjust enough warmth when hiking, x-c skiing, hanging out! Light weight and easily packable! Great for travel! I have two!

February 9, 2023

Perfect Thickness

Fits under my helmets for the right amount of added warmth and looks good on its own.

January 31, 2023


I wear this beanie mostly to add a non bulky layer under a climbing helmet I use for ski touring. Its perfect for me, I can tour up with it under a hat and then transition to my helmet later, all while not overheating or getting chilled ears.

December 7, 2022

Great beanie

Very breathable and warm. I like it for mtb, runs, and hikes. It does itch a little after a long workout.

October 21, 2022

Better than Buff

This is the weight of a Buff but it dries faster. It will cover your ears but looks good cuffed too if it gets a little warm. It is the perfect weight. Get two.

October 2, 2022

Comfortable and light

Expect it will do well when temperatures drop, nice thickness for under a climbing helmet.

September 5, 2022

Light, Breathable, Packable

Using this in & around town in SoCal, so cannot rate for "adverse" conditions. Fits great on a big(gish) head. No pilling (so far), hand wash it, but with Merino not too worried about any smells. Packs down small, so will fit in nearly any pocket. Only thing to improve would be to get rid of extra manufacturing tags... Pretty sure I h... Read Moreeard Patagonia's getting rid of all clothing tags (to avoid wasting excess fabric/ink), so once that happens for all clothing & pack items, will be huge & hopefully influence the rest of the industry. Just add in a QR code or something similar instead of tags... Though I get at stores a tag is useful for those browsing (or those providing inventory security).

April 7, 2022

Warm, compact, comfortable

I wear this primarily for cold / cool weather bike commuting. Great for when you only need a bit to cover your head when cool also nice when its cold worn under a hooded nano. Perfect under bike helmet. Love it for causal wear too.

March 31, 2022

Best beanie ever!!

Best beanie ever. I buy one ever hear, not because theres anything wrong with them, but because if they ever stop selling them, I want to have a stockpile! Very soft, fits well, nice and thin.

January 30, 2022

Lightweight bennie

This little bennie is perfect for adding another layer under your snowboard helmet. I use this on top of my patagonia buff and then my Mammut Crag Sender MIPS Climbing Helmet that is super light weight for split boarding. Its perfect for super cold days on the resort and want to wear with a thicker helmet. I totally see myself using this for cold f... Read Moreall days on the mtn bike.

January 26, 2022

Just right!

Perfect under my bike helmet; not too bulky.

January 17, 2022

A little small but very warm

The title says it all: its a little small but admittedly I have a big dome. I love the material and how it feels. Its also quite warm.

January 7, 2022

The essential base layer for your noggin

Incredibly light, soft and warm, this merino baselayer fit perfectly underneath helmets and other hats on my large head If that weren't enough, it compresses to hardly anything. Its the new essential base layer.

January 4, 2022

Perfect on its own (or underneath a beanie)

I've been running in one of these for years, and just added this newer version so I can rotate the two instead of wearing the same one daily. This beanie (and its older cousin) work really well at absorbing sweat but also releasing heat. They're great on their own but my preferred method is to use these as a base-layer and then throw a be... Read Moreanie on top. My original is so old I can't remember when I bought it but it looks great, feels great, doesn't smell and I suspect the newer version will last awhile too. Thanks for continuing to make awesome products!

Just what I was looking for

I was looking for something just like this, Im glad Patagonia made this. Could not have asked for better materials or design or anything whatsoever.

December 18, 2021

Works under my helmet

Purchased this to wear under a cycling helmet that I wear while riding horses. Works great. I like it so much that I find myself wearing it throughout the day.

December 8, 2021

Works as required

Patagonia never disappoints!

Patagonia Overlook Merino Wool Liner Beanie

Sort of a deep inner cut length so it wont fit snug as a skull cap just covering 3/4 ears stopping there. Nice material. Tags tore off without leaving me information on instructions to wash/handle. Very loose fit and I typically wear a M/L but the major issue is the two layers of Marino being that its folded slide and do not retain form easily. Tak... Read Morees a bit to style it up.

Good light weight hat

Good light hat for under a helmet or as a liner or on less cold days. I mostly use for mountain biking or trail running when I need a little extra warmth with out being too heavy or hot

November 23, 2021

Snug spaces

I grabbed this in anticipation of a winter season trip to coastal Europe. It is not thick enough to be a primary beanie for outdoor winter weather, but it is the perfect beanie for staying comfortable walking about town, on flights, and not bad for a run to keep some heat with out overheating. Its easy to get dry after a freshwater rinse if it does... Read More get sweaty after the run. It is a unique garment with some flexible uses.

Checks every box

Not a cold weather beanie but its not meant to be. But its the perfect cool (hell, even warm) weather beanie for, well, everything, even burritos! Keywords: Go-To. Boss. She ain't itchy, she's my sister. California dreamin'. #I'll take two.

Warmer than youd ever think was possible!!

The perfect running beanie

I originally purchased this on a whim.. but ended up getting a second, because of how amazing this beanie is!! This thing will keep you warm, and then dump heat so that you do not get too hot!! I barely feel it there when running, which is huge because I hate pressure on my head during physical activities. You can easily roll it above your ears, ... Read Moreor stuff it in a pocket.

Excellent Beanie

This wool beanie feels great to put on! Im hair challenged, so this beanie keeps me comfortable in cool weather, when it pours on the Oregon coast this winter, Ill try it under a rain hat and I bet it will continue to impress me! Please make it in NAVY! Thank you

September 20, 2021

Great hat

Great hat. Very soft and comfortable. Fits perfect under my ski helmet.

September 11, 2021


For a head, sans hair, I really love this beanie. Warm on cool days, and cool on warmer days when I do not want to wear a hat. The fabric is super soft and smooth. I wear this daily both indoors during cool days and outside when I am hiking in the spring and fall. One of my favorite pieces of gear!

March 2, 2021

keeps the right temperature

in this cold winter I needed a thin winter liner beanie because I use it under a helmet and this product is amazing keeping just the right temperature.

December 3, 2020


if you are bald this hat is for you! comfortable and light.

November 16, 2020


I was looking for a lightweight merino wool beanie. This one is perfect under a baseball hat for dawn patrol walking the dog. I will also wear it under my ski helmet this season ( I hope). And the merino wool is really soft.

January 29, 2020

So Soft

Super soft, adds a perfect amount of warmth, can be worn under a helmet without uncomfortable scrunching or bunching, and looks good. I've worn it running, cross-country skiing, biking in the cold, and just around town, and it has never disappointed. It's perfect, but if Patagonia wanted to be overachievers (which they already are), I wou... Read Moreld love a version that has a ponytail hole.

January 17, 2020

Perfect Wherever and Whenever

I take this thing everywhere. I'm bald so this thing serves as my hair when I'm out skinning and it gives me just the right amount of warmth when I'm wandering around town. It stays warm even when its fully sweat out. I'd recommend to anyone.

January 13, 2020

Great Liner Hat

This stays in my commuter helmet making winter commuting warmer and it's handy for my bald head upon arrival, keeping me from walking around in the cold with a naked dome.

January 1, 2020

A little extra warmth and protection

Great for when you need a bit more warmth and protection

December 28, 2019

Dream Beanie

Soft, warm, thin, doesn’t overly compress your head, but at the same time it is snug enough to not bunch up and have too much material. I’ll be buying more than one just to have reserves.

December 6, 2019

Its light, Its warm, its soft!

Great for running, or when that ole trusty beanie is just too hot. It offers that skintight, thin hat aesthetic, let us say 30-something and doing... something.

November 21, 2019


I am bald and I need to cover my head in air-conditioned restaurants, doctors' offices, on airplanes, etc. and this beanie fits the bill perfectly. It's thin and lightweight, easy to stuff into a pocket or bag, and doesn't call attention to itself. I love that it keeps cold air off my head but doesn't make me overheat and feel s... Read Moreweaty. Outdoors it's a great hat liner, giving me a double layer of protection from the cold. I'm going to buy a bunch of these so I can stash them everywhere and never be caught without one.

Soft and warm

Great Beanie, I wear it under my ski helmet and it holds its shape and keeps me warm!!

Very thin wool beanie. Great

Very thin wool beanie. Great for high exertion.
