Snowboardboard Beanies Materials and Breathability
Snowboard beanies are made from a range of materials designed to lock heat in and let moisture out. Keeping a head warm is only the first part to a great snowboarding beanie. As the head releases so much heat and sweat, breathability is key. Wider knitted patterns combined with dual-layered constructions are commonly used as they seal warmth in and let the head breath at the same time.
Synthetic and Natural
The battle between synthetic and natural fibres in snowboard beanies is one that will never end. Natural materials like wool have great insulation and breathability properties, but also absorb moisture more easily and stretch over time.. Synthetic fibres like acrylic have excellent elasticity and don’t absorb as much moisture, but are less breathable.
Styles and Thickness
Style is a big question when it comes to snow beanies. Different looks have different constructions, which affects the warmth and performance of each beanie. A ribbed beanie is generally thicker, and therefore warmer, as are heavy ‘knit’ style beanies. A classic beanie blends a medium thickness with solid warmth and breathability for a good all-round choice.
Under The Helmet
Many riders wear beanies under their snowboard helmets. This is purely an aesthetic choice and riders should be careful to not mix a beanie with a fleece liner. The combination of a helmet liner and a beanie can create excess heat, but also affect the fit of the helmet. Removing the liner will improve fit and add a street style to your riding, but be cautious before making any changes to your helmet as safety is the top priority.
