Ski beanies are designed to keep your head warm, but as well as locking heat in, they need to let excess moisture out, too. Ski beanies are often made from different materials to everyday beanies, and may utilise synthetic fibres, a wider knitted, double-layered construction, or a number of other features to balance warmth and breathability effectively.
Many beanies are made from wool due to its high warmth to weight ratio. However wool will absorb moisture over time, while acrylic won’t due to its synthetic makeup. Acrylic offers amazing strength and elasticity, meaning an acrylic beanie won’t stretch out of shape. Acrylic is also a great insulator and is wind resistant, making it ideal for cold weathers.
Beanies come in many styles. A ‘skully’ styled ski beanie will not have a ‘cuff’ that rolls up at the end, whereas a classic ‘cuffed’ beanie will. The style of knit is also variable, and included straight and ribbed knits as the two main choices. Many ski beanies these days are made using a dual-layered construction, which improves heat retention without increasing weight.
Any beanie can be worn under a ski helmet, but should be done so carefully. Most ski helmets have a fleece liner, which when paired with a beanie can create a mismatched head fitment. If you are wearing a beanie under your helmet, removing the liner may be necessary to retain a good fit. However, this is mainly a style choice as it does not affect performance necessarily.
