Black Diamond NM Merino Beanie

I can’t seem to find a warm hat I like. They get sweaty when I’m playing hard, then freeze my noggin when I’m standing still.

Sometimes natural materials insulate best. With a snug fit that covers the ears, Black Diamond’s NM Merino Beanie uses merino wool to keep you warm and dry. The 55 percent nylon/45 percent wool blend feels soft but stays breathable for hyper-active days on the mountain. Two colors; one size. $30
