Gear Review: Shredalert Smith Rock Micro Beanie

A great lightweight lid for any cool weather outing or high-rpm activity in deep cold.

After a long winter of climbing and backcountry skiing with this hat, one tester extolled its virtues as “a great lightweight lid for any cool weather outing or high-rpm activity in deep cold.” Whether he was hitting third-and fourth-class scrambles of the Front Porch formation in Boulder’s Flatirons, or skinning and skiing in the Colorado Rockies, he found the wool/poly blend great for wicking and breathability, especially when he was pushing the miles or sweating under a helmet.

Caveat: Be sure to try it on for size, because the double-layered Polartec Power Dry fabric earband doesn’t have much stretch.
