Beanie is a head-hugging brimless hat sold with or without a visor. Rushing back to their origin, they were invented for the mechanics and technicians who wanted to keep their hair back and not wear a visor. These beanies then came into the fashion of the high school kids and in some universities as a part of the uniform.
Immensely popular in the current age, you can find them made from high-quality synthetic fabric or wool. Here are the 10 best beanies that you should buy for this winter season.
10. Gellwhu Beanie ($11.99)
This is a knitted; thick wool skull cap softly spun from acrylic with a fleece lining. It measures around 56-65cm; is elastic and fits most people. It has a super soft material on the inside and will keep your head nice and warm. It also offers a good amount of stretch but also snugly stays put. Not gender-specific and can be worn by both men and women.
“This men’s hat is super warm and very trendy. I like the soft material on the inside. That stuff keeps my husband’s head nice and warm. I also like that you can wear it more than one way, one you can wear the hat to where the top hangs back or you can roll it up to the top to where the top of the hat touches your head and doesn’t hang over. Either way, you wear it, it looks excellent on and most importantly, it is very warm.” – Amazon’s Customer Review.
9. Angela & William Beanie ($10.40)
A foldover style acrylic beanie, with thick chunky knit construction, for comfort and warmth by Angela and William. The soft fleece inner lining provides additional comfort. It has a 2 1/2″pom at top, and this one size fits most of the adults. Great gift for anybody and a perfect winter accessory.
“This is my favourite beanie. I was headed to the snow and had purchased a couple of different beanies for the trip, but used this one the most. What made it different was that it’s lined inside with fleece and kept my head warm. Plus it’s super cute!” – Amazon’s Customer Review.
8. Forbusite Beanie (14.99)
This is a baggy winter beanie by Forbusite, ideal for heads of circumference 52~59cm. It is dual-layered and has a hole design. Screams fashion and vintage with its sloppy look.
“Being familiar with mannequin head forms, I more or less expected the hat to be a little snug on my head with a little slouching in the bag. Boy, was I correct! I have long hair, so that also might be making it a little tighter around my head,
Everything else is to be expected. If you have a larger head, though, be warned that this won’t fit as loosely as the picture looks – even if you have short/no hair.” – Amazon’s Customer Review.
7. The North Face Beanie ($22.70)
This beanie by The North Face is manufactured from 100% acrylic and has an integrated fleece ear band. You can choose from a wide variety of colours in the list below. Fashion and comfort packed in one.
“Well made, attractive and friendly and warm without being bulky. This is a nice winter cap, more than just a fashion accessory. Comfortable to wear. It’s one size and fits my larger head no problem. Not too tight or too loose.” – Amazon’s Customer Review.
6. Cambridge Select Beanie ($5.45)
This is a warm, chunky soft, slouchy beanie by Cambridge Select. It is made from 100% acrylic and measures 22.3″ on head and 7-1/8″ in size. Available in ten different colors, this unit keeps your head warm and is large enough to wear over your ears. Excellent quality with great fashion.
“I love this hat! It is soft, comfortable, and looks perfect! I have an average size head, but the way it is shaped it’ll stretch for a larger head, and my young children could also wear it. In my house whatever hat we can find at the moment is the one you wear, and I’m confident all 5 of us could wear this one. I’m so happy that I bought it. I plan to wear it in our family holiday picture. It is a great deal.” – Amazon’s Customer Review.
5. Everything Black Beanie ($13.95)
This is 9 inches acrylic beanie, made dual-layered with one size for all adults. It covers your ears well and keeps your head and ears warm. The material is itch-free, comfortable knit. A fine option!

The premium-quality acrylic will not make your forehead itchy and will work well for anybody of any age or head shape. It is relatively thick, supple and stylish with a lot of versatility in its wearing options.
“Funky Janques stylish hat. I completely love it. I was looking around for a nice warm hat for winter and came across this hat here at Amazon and decided to give it a try, and I am so glad that I did. It is warm, a bit oversized because of the style, and comfortable.. you can pull it down low on your neck to ward off the chills or wear it up higher just covering the ears. This is only the beginning of winter, but it is already my fav hat. It is nice and stretchy but yet soft and warm. I wish I had one in every colour. I am 66 years old and figure I have earned the right to wear what I want regardless of style.. instead when I shop I look for comfort before I look for style and in this instance also warmth. This hat has everything, style, comfort and warmth.. what is not to like about it! I am hoping to get a couple more in other colours before the cold weather kicks in (Michigan here). I just don’t think you can go wrong with this ‘funky’ hat.
UPDATE: I have worn the hat all thru the winter for any outdoor work that I needed to do whether it was snow removal or simply going into town to get groceries.. it is my fav hat, and it has held up well and will certainly take me into another winter with it next year.
Thumbs up from me!” – Amazon’s Customer Review.
3. Koloa Surf Beanie ($11.95)
This slouchy beanie has a knit construction with 55% acrylic and 45% polyester slices. The knit construction keeps you warm and can work for both men and women. It is not heavy and nor thick and is a great loose fitting beanie for days and evenings. The elasticity is fine, and it will fit loosely snug on your head. One size fits all.
“I bought this beanie because it’s the same one that Markiplier wears. I expected a typical beanie to be honest. But the colours, fit and overall feel of the beanie are excellent. Indeed glad I bought it, and I have referred other Markiplier’s Heroes to this page also to purchase the beanie, as I’ve also been asked where I got it. :D” – Amazon’s Customer Review.

The cable knit sets them apart from other beanies and gives them a more fashionable look. I will probably end up buying a couple more!” – Amazon’s Customer Review.
