All the protection you need coupled with comfort and breathability make for a top running beanie. Zoned fabrics and a number of interesting features make this a great design.
Building on the success of the previous EXTREME THERMO SKULL, the 2.0 beanie features windproof panelling and a fleece backing to ensure both outstanding protection and warmth without compromising on breathability. The perfect hat for training runs or races in cold conditions on the trail or mountain.
Inov8's Extreme Thermo Beanie 2.0 is an ideal running beanie. It provides protection from the wind across the forehead and around the ears while highly breathable fabric covers the top of the hat to allow that excess heat to escape. There are reflective details for those late night or early morning runs, there are vents to make it compatible for glasses and a rear vent for long hair too.
This is one of the most impressive designs for a running hat I've ever seen and it would be an immediate favourite for me. However, the fact that it only comes in one size means it's just too tight to be comfortable for me (I need an XL size) which I'm really disappointed about.
