There??s something magical about this hat, something I discovered the moment I saw the extraordinary length of the body???an immediate indication that it would be ???slouchy,?? as the hobos say. Having grown up in a preppy environment where beanies fit snugly around the entire head without any extra slack, I??ve recently become interested in the slouchy-fit movement. After all, why shouldn??t the head be wild and free, the scalp and ears only loosely-covered with a soft, warm, casually-woven garment? For those looking to free their heads from tight-fitting beanie oppression and invite a style that??s admirable for hangouts mid-slope as well the frigid, fashion-conscious sidewalks of major metropolises, the Shinsky beanie is their answer.

In addition to the relaxed fit, the Shinsky beanie is marvelously soft. I sometimes keep it on after I??ve come in from the elements, often mistaking it for my own hair. The beanie is also made of animal-friendly acrylic, contributing to the prolonged happiness of countless animals. In fact, just the other day I saw a sheep trying on this hat at my local North Face store. How incredibly sweet!

The down-side of the Shinsky beanie? Well, unfortunately, I??ve come to find that it is difficult to wear this hat at parties and get-togethers; it simply demands too much attention and invites unwelcome hands-on ???petting?? type gestures from other people. Aside from that, the comfort and delight I take in this hat is incomparable. Thank you, North Face, for freeing my head and keeping me warm and stylish!

i purchased this beanie after reading all the good reviews but I'm extremely disappointed. I finally wore it today the weather was about 30 F. Degrees in Boston and the beanie was not warm enough, i must say that it covers my ears perfectly but i could feel the cold breeze, is stylish and fits nice but is not warm enough for me.

    This hat is very cool! Slightly oversized for a laid back vibe the fleece inside the hat makes this super warm. I love the clean bright white color.

    SHINSKY BEANIE

    By 

    from Massachusetts

    Comments about The North Face Shinsky Beanie:

    I have purchased the beanie in black. The shipping was very fast. The hat is a beautiful, deep black. It is double lined, not just knit, so it is reversible and provides great warmth. It is big enough to cover my ears and still have the baggy style to it. It is an excellent beanie and I would definately buy another.

        Comments about The North Face Shinsky Beanie:

        My girlfriend bought this hat at the beginning of the winter. I was at her place one cold day here in Minnesota and needed a hat. I put this hat on and within 10mins I was toasty warm. I spent about a week in search for the color I wanted but no such luck. I decided to settle for the blue but it really didn't matter what color I had anymore. I just needed that hat no matter what. I couldn't go another winter here without it!! I love it so much that once they are back in stock I will be buying more. I just think North Face makes great quality products that are worth the money you pay for it.

          Comments about The North Face Shinsky Beanie:

          I purchased this in Retro Green hoping for more of a bright "kelly green" color that it showed on my screen (I thought it would look great with my strawberry blond hair), but I understand how colors in pictures can vary on different computers and such. When I received this hat I was at first sad to see that it wasn't the color I was hoping for, as it is more of a bold sea-foam color, but after I tried it on I found myself warming to the true color it was. It really is a fresh and gorgeous color which brightens your skin and is a beautiful surprise against the darker and more dreary colors that you often find in fall and winter wardrobes. It it a thicker material than I expected and is all white knit on the inside. It truly is a "slouchy" style, and to really keep it secure on your head (so it doesnt go flying off) you need to pull it down over bangs (or tuck them in) so that it lays across your forehead. This allows it to lay snuggily over your ears and bunch in that slouchy-style in the back, keeping your head very warm. If you are looking for something more lightweight for mild weather, look elsewhere. This hat is thick, soft, and definitely meant for cold weather. I am absolutely keeping it.

              The only reason I gave this hat 4 stars is because I purchased it last year and it actually unraveled at the top. I didn't have my receipt, so I was unable to return it, but love it so much that I'm purchasing it again this year in multiple colors (and saving the receipt just in case)! So warm and comfy, very stylish.

                                I was looking for a casual hat that I could wear to work and also out with friends. This hat fits the bill! It's stylish, comfortable, and very warm. I also like that it's reversible, allowing you to switch up the style if you want. Would absolutely recommend this hat!

                                    Bought this for a ski trip. Haven't used it yet, but it is very thick and I love the color. It feels very soft and warm. I think this will work great for my trip.

                                        I purchased this hat for my daughter, for her birthday. She absolutely loves it. It's perfect for winter weather, even in extreme cold! Would highly recommend purchasing it.
