The Gradient is a smart looking, warm merino wool beanie with a soft fleece headband to add extra comfort. All the breathability, temperature regulation and wicking abilities of natural wool.
Outdoor Research says
CLASSIC STYLE WITH A TWIST The warm wool of this hat keeps you focused when a blast of cold air threatens to chill you to the core. Keeping you toasty and protected, this hat’s impermeable boiled wool shell never lets you down.
Outdoor Research's 2020 Gradient Beanie is a warm 100% boiled merino wool beanie. A soft fleecy head band increases comfort and reduces the itch factor. The performance of the natural merino wool is excellent. The properties that really shine through are the level of warmth, good breathability and temperature regulation combined with the high wicking nature that helps with moisture management. The simple coloured stripes look smart and give the hat a more versatile feel as it looks at home in the mountains or around town.
The hat isn't very stretchy and I fear it would be a tight fit for those with large heads. Otherwise this is a warm breathable and stylish beanie.
