Much better than running beanie
I really like this thermal beanie. I had been using a running beanie that would pull up exposing my lower ears when I would ride. This thermal beanie has cups that dip below my ears and do not pull up like the less expensive beanie did. I use this beanie in combination with the neck tube which tucks under my long sleeve Cycology jersey over my base layer. I put the thermal beanie on first and then pull the neck tube over the top of the thermal beanie to provide added protection. The combination of the two products has enabled me to ride in much colder weather and extend my outdoor riding. I can comfortably ride in windy conditions with temperatures in the 30's and wind chills in the 20's. I much prefer to ride outside than on a trainer and I have been very pleased with this combination.
