Warm and comfortable
This hat is great for cold weather - it's lightweight, warm, keeps the ears covered, and the fleece band keeps the wool from scratching. Aesthetically speaking, the color is lovely but the shape of the hat can be a little boxy-looking on my narrow head (unless I have it pulled all the way down, in which case the hat is pulled so low as to cover my eyebrows). Overall, a great hat for a cold climate.

This beanie is Warm!!
I purchased the Classic Beanie Toque a couple of years ago and just about wore it out so I came back to Altrec to get another one. When I saw the Wooli Toque I had to try it out. It was 15 bucks more so it's got to be that much better, right? It's extremely warm and it's deeper than the Classic Beanie. I shave my head so I didn't really need any extra room in my hat but I still love it. The liner around the edge of the cap keeps the wool from itching your forehead and ears. I like the more subtle bird logo on the edge of the beanie versus the giant sewn-in logo on the Classic Beanie. I would buy this again and probably will in a couple years when I wear it out. (Bald guys have to wear hats a lot more) It's great for walking around your local shopping center or skiing in brutal conditions. I love these caps!

Sure the price is a bit steep but its a great hat. I got the Abyss Blue Wooli Toque and it does what its supposed to. Keeping my head warm. It is made of wool making it very comfortable, but if wool makes you especially itchy than you might prefer synthetic. But overall, it's not that bad, as it is tight fitting and it doesn't shrink in the wash.

While the price is a bit steep for a hat, I was not disappointed after a full winter of use for alpine and cross country skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, and around town. This hat is extremely warm; a perfect choice for extra cold mornings. The fleece band around the inside of the hat keeps the wool from feeling scratchy. The hat also looks great: rich colors, stylish, lots of detail in the stitching. I have heard complaints that the little metal logo plate will fall off over time, but mine survived a full season of abuse. Overall, this is the best hat I have ever owned. I plan I buying a couple more before they stop making it.

I never loved a hat before. But I really love this one. Really well designed and made. Also, made in Italy. I don't like stuff with a big brand name or brand logo on it. This hat fits everything I can think of a great hat. I'm getting more for my friends and family.
