Buyer's guide for men's nordic ski beanie-headband.
Depending on the particular type, some ski beanies will be warmer or more breathable than others. And since it's not always easy to choose a product, here's a buyer's guide that might help you.
What are the various cross-country ski beanies?
Choose your beanie according to its purpose. Woolen beanies are much warmer. People like them because they conserve heat very well. They are frequently used after competitions or during low intensity excursions. For intensive excursions and competitions, it is important to ensure good thermoregulation to prevent hypothermia. Lycra beanies are recommended. They ensure optimal humidity transfer.
So what about headbands?
Cross country ski headbands are used in milder conditions. Athletes generally don't wear headbands below -5°C, as the band doesn't cover the entire head and heat loss would be too great below that temperature. Made of lycra, ski headbands are designed more for humidity transfer than heat conservation.
