SmartWool NTS Micro 150 Pattern Beanie Hat

Today my friends we are taking a look at the SmartWool NTS Micro 150 Pattern Beanie.

- Merino Wool (For Men and Women)

These do retail for $22 and that's a typical price to see them at on most sites but with a limited time exception.

To save some money, check out Sierra Trading Post and remember to go looking for a coupon.  Save some additional money on a great beanie.

$9.95 on Sierra Trading post but if you can find a coupon you can get it for $6.47.

I would give you the coupon that I used but they expire so quickly that it wouldn’t be of much use.

Look around because you can always get 35% off and often enough you can get 45% off of your order.

So with that being said, this is the
SmartWool NTS Micro 150 Pattern Beanie Hat - Merino Wool (For Men and Women)

Useful as a base layer in the cold, the single layer beanie fairs better with fall weather, as UPF 25 protects your head from the sun and a light breeze.

Merino wool wicks away moisture and breathes to regulate temperature for outstanding comfort in a variety of conditions
Available in 5 Colors : Blue, White, Red, Yellow and Gray

There is a Blue one and a white one on sierra trading post’s site but they are available elsewhere in yellow, gray and red colors.

SmartWool's NTS Micro 150 Pattern beanie hat is made of microweight merino wool to provide ultralight, temperature-regulating, moisture-wicking and breathable comfort all season long. Low-bulk construction makes it perfect for wearing under a helmet.
Itch-free merino wool naturally regulates temperature, wicks moisture and doesn't retain odor

Microweight, low-bulk fabric works as a base layer under helmets and bigger hats
Made in Vietnam

Unisex Design

So far I absolutely love this beanie and have worn in temps down to around 30 degrees f and in high winds.  Did a great job of keeping my head and ears warm and protected.  I have worn it in light rain as well as snow and the natural properties of wool keep my head warm as well.

I love the fact that this beanie is so thin and light.  Often times when it’s getting cold out there is a struggle to find the right head covering for the job.  Either it’s too much or not enough and for temps down into the 20’s this one is perfect especially if I’m moving around.  If you are cold natured and not moving much, you may want something warmer at those temps.  Keep that in mind.
