Ibex Zepher Skull Cap

rated 4.5 of 5 stars
photo: Ibex Zepher Skull Cap winter hat

A comfortable merino wool hat that will become your new favorite hat within a few minutes of wearing it. Definitely worth spending a few bucks on (though mine was a prize).

Pros

  • Comfortable
  • Warm
  • Looks good

Cons

  • The Trailspace logo pulled it slightly out of lay.

So I have a SERIOUS PROBLEM with this hat....pretty soon it's going to be too warm to wear it all the time.

This merino wool hat is phenomenally comfortable and comforting. I've been home sick all day today. The house has been cold, and I've been in my jammies and Ibex Zepher Skull Cap the entire time.

Aside from pulling nursing duty, the Zepher is a great piece of head gear to have in the outdoors. In mild temps or when I'm working up a sweat, this provides the right amount of warmth. When temps have fallen into single digits, I've layered this with my Black Rock Beanie for an unbeatable combo of warmth and comfort.

The fit is nice. It's not too tight (although, wearing glasses for an extended period does create those dreaded tender spots behind the ears). People have complimented me on the color.

The only con is when the Trailspace logo was sewn onto it, it pulled the lay of the hat just a bit. It's not a huge con. It's just enough to annoy me a tad. Since most people would be looking to buy this sans logo, it's not a big deal.

(Note the dimple in all 3 pics below and right of
the logo. That's a the pull I'm talking about.)

This Ibex Zepher Merino Wool Skull Cap that I received from TS has quickly become my go-to beanie. Highly recommended!!

Pros

  • Comfortable
  • Good fit
  • Warm
  • Versatile

Cons

  • Loosens a bit after a few uses

I really like this beanie. It was a gift from TS for posting a picture in Glacier Nat'l Park of my water bottle with a TS sticker.  Thanks again, TS!!  

It is very versatile in different weather conditions and has been great for hiking, jogging, outdoor sleeping and general use.  It looks good and fits very comfortably. It keeps my head warm and functions as it should. I noticed it doesn't make my head itch as bad as most of my other beanies.  That is a big plus.  

It does loosen a bit after a few uses but a quick wash and cycle through the dryer tighten it right back up.
