Wow! I lost one of those a year or so back (stuffed in a side pocket during an off-trail scramble) and haven't replaced it yet... 

Thanks for the awesome prize!  Congrats to all - I feel honored to be in the company of these reviewers!

My custom-made "top 25" down-filled Black Rock beanie arrived this morning. I say "custom-made" because (1) Dave sent a letter to each of us requesting head circumference, (2) the beanie was enclosed in a sealed plastic bag, by which I mean, completely hermetically sealed in a plastic bag that had to be cut open - no cheesy ziplock bag, and (3) a note on the bag addressed to me personally by "Rex" (hmmm... who is this "Rex" - HEY! THANKS, REX!

It is a perfect fit, and the elastic band guarantees I can use it in my sleeping bag inside a snow shelter or standing out in the wind with no fear of its coming off, leaving my increasingly hairless head exposed to the elements.

So my wife chastised me several years ago for spending $50 on one of these. NOW she acts like it belongs to her!

Thanks for ending the feud in our home! :P

I knew there was a hippie in you, Goose.

I'll bring my footbag next time we go backpacking!

Screw you Canada! I hate seeing everyone else enjoying their cool new prizes and then having to wait another two weeks to get mine.

Still waiting on mine too, Jake. I think Baltimore City is a 'lil bit like living in a third world country...

Thanks to all of you for being such great reviewers and community members!

Trailspace would be a pretty dull, quiet place without all of you. We truly appreciate the time and energy you spend writing such helpful reviews, and reaching out to others to make this a positive place.

Enjoy the beanies!

Another big thank you for the hat! That truly is a quality gift, and it’s actually kind of perfect as a backpacker gift – it’s an indulgence to spend that kind of money on a hat so many serious backpackers wouldn’t get one for themselves, yet it’s something we definitely will appreciate and use for years. Thanks again!

Sah-weet! Arrived just as I was leaving for a quick trip to Dovrefjell, where it will be useful, but then I am going to Costa Rica, where it will not. Plus, my wife will probably take it away from me because she has thing for really warm hats.
