Wilderness Wear Polartec 200 Beanie Review

For many people having a toasty warm head is a high priority in the colder months of the year so having a nice warm beanie is an essential item for many hikers. While Wilderness Wear is known mainly for their merino wool products they also make use of synthetic materials in some of the hybrid garments as well as the odd standalone synthetic garment like this Wilderness Wear Polartec 200 Beanie.

This beanie is made of 200 gram weight Polartec and is sold in male and female versions but in all honesty the label that comes with these beanie’s is a ‘one size’ label. The differences are in the colour with the men’s version sold in Natural and Ivy colours while the women’s also comes in a Cherry colour.

The sizing of these beanies is quite reasonable and unless you have a large head, or a large head of hair, this beanie will work for most people. The length of the beanie is also good allowing you to wear it pulled down to provide maximum warmth to the whole head or to folded up to just keep the upper part of the head warm.

And keep you warm it does. As someone with no hair this beanie is going to be a mid-winter option because it really does keep you warm. This beanie also protects you to a degree from both snow and rain.

Care wise this synthetic beanie can be warm water washed and even put through the dryer which is something that isn’t recommended for 100% wool garments.

All up this beanie does what its meant to – keep your head warm when you need it and survives the rough treatment that comes from outdoor activities – you can’t ask for more than that!

We like

  • Super soft double layer 200 gsm Polartec is super warm
  • Keeps its shape with use
  • Well styled to fit snugly on your head
  • Has a cuff you can wear folded up or down if it’s super cold
  • One size fits all
  • Dries quickly to minimise heat loss

We don't like

  • If you have a large head or lots of thick hair, this beanie may be a bit small
