Returned: not the same as previous version
This is all too common of many beanie companies:cut/sizing...why deviate from original cut/sizing? The rounding of the top is different and much longer than an older version of the same style. Great fabric but cut is way off.

Hello Ryan, thank you for your review. We're sorry to hear that the fit on this beanie is not working out for you. We double checked to see if there have been any changes to this style, and we were not able to find anything. We did notice however that the product pictures show it styled a bit differently with the most current season version. In the past we have shown it modeled with the label on the side of the head, rather than close to the center; you could try that to see if that helps with fit. If not, you're absolutely welcome to [send it back](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html). We're also happy to provide you with measurements if you're interested in a different beanie, just reach out to customer service.
I like this beanie a lot! Aside from it looking amazing it also is incredibly comfortable. After breaking it in at work for a couple of days, it feels awesome, keeps my head warm and I barely even notice Im wearing it. Definitely not a beanie for very cold conditions, but good for everyday use in cold conditions and warmer.
Good Looking but Needs Stretched
I wear a beanie almost everyday in the fall and winter and this has become one of my go-to's. I prefer to roll the beanie an extra time to give it the classic fishermans look above the ears. To get this look the beanie does need to be stretched out a bit. I have a small head and it started snug but after wearing it more it fits great! Would lo...

Bought for gf, the seams are really weird and don't fit right.

Hi Aaron! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're really sorry to hear about the disappointment with the beanie. Your satisfaction is always guaranteed so you're welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html).
Best beanie so far
The Fishermans Rolled Beanie is the best I have found thus far. The weave allows for plenty of stretch so the fit isnt tight like the Brodeo and it doesnt itch! Also, there is no limit to how much you can roll up the sides so lots of style options. Just got the Wax Red. It is such a great color on and is a great accent piece.
I thought it would be thicker. Its very thin.

Hi Domenico! Thank you for writing us a review. We're really sorry to hear about the disappointment with the beanie. If you're interested in a thicker option we'd suggest taking a look at our [Brodeo Beanie](https://www.patagonia.com/product/brodeo-beanie/29206.html?dwvar_29206_color=SEQR&cgid=root).
Great hat! High quality.
Love this hat and have it in a few colors. I appreciate that it doesnt have a giant Patagonia logo on it like some of the other hats do. It is comfortable, warmish, and the cabin gold color is gorgeous. These are great hats to compliment shoes/socks for those who think about those things.
A bit tight
I have a small head and it was a bit tight on me, but still wearable. It did not fit my boyfriend who has a bigger sized head.

Thank you for sharing this feedback, Hayley. This is very useful to other customers and to our product designers. If that fit should ever be a deal breaker, please remember you are always welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) it.
Stylish and Quality but Runs Smalls
Bought this and was really happy with the look and material. Seems to be good quality, but I cant speak to how long it lasts as I had to return it. For anyone with an even slightly larger head this will most likely not fit. It felt much too snug and wouldnt cover my ears if even if I pulled it down all the way. Im bummed it doesnt come in a larger ... Read Moresize.
Not as warm as previous product
Inferior product compared to the previous years

Hi Thomas, thank you for your feedback. We're sorry to hear you're finding this beanie less warm than our previous models! If you would like, we'll be happy to help you [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) it.
Wished it lasted
Really enjoyed the hat for the first week, after that the seams began unraveling and coming apart.

Hello Jacob, we are sorry to learn about your experience with the Fisherman's Rolled Beanie. Please feel free to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) it for a warranty evaluation.
Cute hat that is warm and stays in place with strenuous activities! I measure a 22" head circumference, and this Fisherman's rolled beanie fits perfectly. Feels stretchy enough to fit larger heads. I purchased the Piton Purple and love it! Would like to see Patagonia use this color in more clothing too!
This hat is a fishermans roll. Meant to fit snug on the head. Im super happy with this hat. Could it be warmer? Maybe yes. Is it still awesome? Definitely yes. Its meant to be snug. A lot of reviews complain about the size. Understand what youre buying. If you want a typical beanie, look at the brodeo. If you want to look like the cast if Life Aqua... Read Moretic and be awesome, get this hat. I would recommend it to anyone. Wearing it while I write this review, and I couldnt be happier about. Buy this hat!
I bought this as a Christmas gift for someone. They wore it twice and it has come apart at the seam. Terribly made and terribly overpriced.

Hi Leslie! We are incredibly sorry to hear about how quickly this item began to come apart.

Leaves lines on your forehead
It's a great hat and I love the look and fit of it. But it does leave knit lines on your forehead. I wish it was lined.

Hello Avis, thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're sorry to hear that the beanie leaves lines on your forehead that is definitely disappointing.

Fun Christmas morning photo by the tree
Bought 10 of these in black for all the boys and men in my family for Christmas. I thought they would need to be returned due to one size fits all. Pleasant surprise! They all fit from 10 year , teens, 20s up to a 69 year old. The guys all liked the fit and style. Made for a fun Christmas morning picture by the tree.
So tiny. Darn! I wanted to love it.
This beanie would not stay on my head, because it was so tight it kept popping off. It was also super itchy. Im bummed. Usually Patagonia rocks it.

Runs very small-didnt fit at all!
This hat was a disappointment of Patagonia wear. It was so small my husband couldnt wear it all all-price way too high for a gift he couldnt use. Very thin too, not at all like other products we purchased. Very disappointed!

Hello Julie, we are sorry the beanie did not work out and for any disappointment this may have caused. We will reach out privately with [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) information. For future reference, we are also happy to provide any measurement information to minimize any need for returns or exchanges.
It is a toque, or beanie, or whatever you call it. It fits snug, this isn't a fashion cap for styling. There isn't an excess of material here. My biggest gripe is the inward seam can get in the way and make it sit funny on the head but otherwise it gets the job done.
Great hat for a kid
My husbands never ending quest to find the perfect black beanie has led him to try this version. He has small to medium size head but it wouldnt even budge. Just for kicks I put it on my 6 year old and it fits.
Response from PatagoniaSeptember 20, 2021
Hey Rose, we appreciate you taking the time to share this important feedback with us. It looks like 1/2 the circumference for this hat comes in at 8.071". The material does have some stretch, but as we work towards more inclusive sizing, this is invaluable info that we'll share with our teams.

So Ill admit Im a sucker for the carhartt beanies, but this beanie is awesome . Not as much extra material as the beanies mentioned above sometimes have, which is nice to change it up. True to size I guess, it fit me very well but Ive also been told I have a big head lol. Will definitely get some more of these. Support companies that fight for our ... Read Moreplanet!
Great on a bald head
If you have a bald head, you know some winter hats are less than flattering. Loose, extra room, constantly adjusting it. This hat fits great. Put it on how you like and it stays. Its warm and looks great. Holds its shape and stays in place. I couldnt be happier
Ok for fall and spring, not for winter
The hat (following a tradition among many manufacturers, and unfortunately now Patagonia too) is very thin, in a way impossible to see from the web photos -- but you'll notice it if you try wearing it in winter in any northern state, especially if it's windy. It's more of a 'style hat' than something to keep you warm.
Response from PatagoniaMarch 26, 2020
Hi Enrico, we're sorry to hear you're disappointed with the fabric! Please feel free to check out the [Better Sweater Fleece Beanie](https://www.patagonia.com/product/better-sweater-fleece-beanie/33411.html) for a thicker, warmer option.
Great beanie, but runs really small
We like it, but were surprised at the "one size fits all" sizing. If you have a large noggin, it will fit very small. It would also be nice if they made a lined one; this one is good for mild cold days, but definitely won't suffice on colder days.
great style, great fit, great color
This is my second fishermans beanie in this color. I sadly lost my first one on a trail out and had to replace it ASAP. Over 3 years, including countless adventures and daily wear in the fall and winter, it's kept its shape, color saturation, and integrity of the knit. And the fabric doesn't pill!
Careful if you're bald.
This beanie is tight, I actually find that the Brodeo beanie wears better on my head than this one but it's equally warm. One thing is that if you don't have hair, this hat will compress your head and leave imprints of the ridges (they last about an hour or two). I'm hoping this is something that'll go away after it stretches ou... Read Moret a bit. That being said, I docked two star sbecause the material doesn't look as sturdy as the Brodeo that I've had since 2016. After a few days I already caught a loose yarn sticking out on part of the hat, hope that it doesn't unravel into a hole eventually.
Perfect fit, Comfy every day hat
I found this hat at an outdoor store on a rack with 50+ other beenies. This one was the most comfortable and looked the best. It fits FANTASTIC, it stretches over time a little, so do t get impatient and stretch it out or it'll be too big. It has just enough length to fit like a "condom" hat with no roll, and you can roll it up until... Read More it's super small. It's not itchy and it's just the right amount of warm. I think it would be too hot to wear in the high 60's-70's, and not warm enough below 20.
Great Hat, but...
This hat is comfortable and stylish at the same time. My only concern is that a few weeks after purchase the threads are starting to come undone. I was hoping a little bit more quality would have been put into it for the price. All in all though it's a great hat to keep your head warm!
Yes it’s small
I ordered this hat after reading the comments because I have a small head and most one-size hats are too big. They are right! It’s small, but it fits me just right and I love the mrytle green color and that it’s not made of wool. It’s a stretchy loose knit so I think someone with a medium size head could wear it also. It’s not a cold winter day hat... Read More, but it’s my new favorite.
FIts very small, but awesome hat otherwise
This had is beautifully knit, and I loved the color, but it runs really small. I have a large head, and it's not even close on me. My buddy has a medium head and it's still a bit tight. So it looks like I'll be giving it to my wife or son. If you have a small head, you will love the hat. I'm hoping this beanie gets offered in tw... Read Moreo sizes in the future.
Not small on my large head
I'm a bit baffled by all the comments on this beanie running really small. I have a large head and finding hats that fit well is always a challenge. This beanie fits me really well. It's light, stretchy, and warm enough for my needs (it's a moderate weight hat). If I was headed to someplace really cold, I'd grab a different bean... Read Moreie. So consider this a counterpoint to all the negative reviews. Clearly others have an issue with the sizing, but I love it.
Like other reviewers,this is smaller than you'd think looking at the picture. Also not as thick looking as the picture. Kind of surprises you when looking at it in person compared to the online picture. Anyway,didn't think it was a big deal. Decided to keep it and wear it. All the comments (unsolicited) has to do with it being small look... Read Moreing,like I'm wearing a kid's hat... whatever. Also,I liked the idea of a "fisherman beanie" but,this really doesn't have that fisherman look,too tiny,slightly thin. It looks more like a snowboarding beanie cap.
When this hat arrived in the mail I was shocked. I had to look at our invoice to make sure it wasn't a baby's product. It literally looks like an infant's hat! It honestly BARELY fits my 2 year old. I will either keep it for my son or it will be going back. It's a shame because I love the orange color.
Go gently on this beanie
I purchased this hat about two weeks ago,last week I was skiing some deep powder and went down a couple times. When I tried to brush the hardened snow from the beanie a large portion of the threads came with it. Luckily we're dealing with a great company. I walked into the towns local Patagonia and they swapped it out. I love the style and It ... Read Morefit my head perfectly while I had it ( 7 1/4) and was very warm. If you aren't going to be rough on the hat I'm sure it would be fine.
I like the idea of a very simple hat. However, the top seam on this one is bulky and it doesn't quite lay right, whether rolled or not. I still wear it a lot anyway...but strings are now coming out all over the hat. Doesn't seem like it's going to last very long before it's too ratty to wear.
Surpassed my Expectations...
My head gets cold and I wear a lot of hats. I got this one when Patagonia had their "donation" day after Thanksgiving: I can always use another hat and besides,it was for a good cause. Well,turns out it's not just a good feeling. The hat is soft,comfortable,and has,for me,just the right amount of stretch. Even more impressive,it'... Read More;s warm and holds up to a wind. That is,hats like this have,in the past,always seemed a little cold to me due to the weave. But not this one! The warmth is impressive and lasting. I'm liking this one so much that I'd look for another one when this one needs replacing.
I like the idea,but the weave on the hat is too loose to feel snug (or even especially warm,for that matter). I have a largish head (size 7 1/2 hat),and a moderate wind blew this hat off! I like the style,but it just hasn't been executed especially well yet.
Holy cow what a great beanie! I was skeptical at first feel (comfort) and weight(warmth) of the beanie,once I put it on it is my new go to beanie,it is hands down the most comfortable beanie I have ever worn. The weight is just right I have worn it in 17 degree weather and 40 degree weather and it was perfect. Highly recommend!
perfect for me
This is the perfect every day, all around piece. It's nothing special, but that's what's so special about it. I can get rid of all my other beanies that have been taking up too much room because I want to wear this until it has holes in it, then fix the holes and wear it until it falls apart.
