Product Details
  • GORE® WINDSTOPPER® product: totally windproof, extremely breathable and durably water resistant
  • Windproof forehead protection with elastic GORE® WINDSTOPPER® membrane
  • Fully taped seams for added rain protection
  • Reflective details
  • 2 slits at ears for glasses

    The GORE ® WINDSTOPPER® membrane is an ultra thin protective layer which is laminated to a lightweight textile layer, making it totally windproof. It is made of the versatile polymer PTFE (polytetrafluorethylene) which is expanded to create a microporous structure. These micropores are 900 times larger than water vapor molecules, allowing perspiration to pass through unhindered.

    The totally windproof, yet extremely breathable membrane blocks the wind and allows vapor to escape. This combination of protection and breathability minimizes the wind’s chilling effect while reducing the risk of overheating when you are active. A durable outer fabric treatment provides you additional protection of water repellency.

    M GORE® WINDSTOPPER® Thermo Beanie is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Warm but not so great for bald men In the beginning of the ride, this beanie is very warm, no issues at all. However, as my BALD head starts to sweat profusely, this beanie does not wick the moisture and keeps the sweat inside making my head feel cold.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comparatively very warm Ive have had a few scull caps over the last 20 years and below 2 degrees in damp weather in the UK head either felt cold, or had to push it hard, so often wore 2 caps. This hat is excellent - at zero degrees not pushing it i felt warm enough and no head chill; definitely good for sub zero temperatures in damp windy weather. Only issue is sizing - seems to miss 58.5-59.9cm - which is between what i am. So i opted for the medium - is perfectly ok but only just stays over ear lobes. If had option would give it 4.5 stars. Hope this is of help.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for sunglasses! Finally a beanie with slits for sunglasses. No longer do I have to put the beanie over the sunglasses creating pressure on my head and face or over the beanie where they can slide in the fabric. Surprised no other brand has thought of sunglass slits yet. Thank you Gore for thinking of it and making this! Very comfortable and the only beanie you’ll want to wear if you wear sunglasses

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps your head nice and warm I routinely participate in a Tuesday and Thursday night plus a Saturday and Sunday morning group rides. It entails riding along the SoCal coast with constant wind, and damp air. The temperatures this winter, have been as low as 38 degrees while riding. The helmet cap has been awesome! The fit is excellent, it has kept my head and ears nice and warm. It is so light you forget you are wearing it. When it warms up, just take off and roll it up and stick in a jersey back pocket, it doesn't take up hardly any space. It is now an essential part of my winter riding kit. I just wish I would have bought it sooner.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Windproof and sized right A windproof hat that has sizes to actually fit your head! The size fit perfect without being overly tight like most skull caps. The sunglasses holes are a nice touch, allowing me to keep my ears covered and glasses on. Comfortable under my cycling helmet in 45°F with a 25 mph wind. No issues, great product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for cold/wet weather I wanted something to keep my head warm during winter rides. I bought this online and when it arrived I was concerned that it might be too thin. It works great. I've ridden with temps in the teens, wind and rain and it has kept my head warm and dry under my bike helmet. Some of the best money I've spent on cycling gear.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits like a glove but a hat instead. Nothing negative to say here. My one and only thermo cap because I got it right the first time.
