Icebreaker Merino Pocket Hat Skullcap Beanie

A lightweight, packable option for travelers and backpackers alike, the Icebreaker pocket beanie will always keep you, and your ears covered.

Categories: , Tag:


The Icebreaker Pocket beanie was built for adventurers, explorers, and everyday commuters. The skull-cap style hat comprises a relatively thick 200 GSM, 100% Merino wool material. It’s not only comfortable & soft but also breathable. The jersey-knit fabric allows plenty of airflow and wicks moisture away from your head if you’re sweating out in nature.

However, the most unique feature is this beanie’s packability. The lightweight fabric and functional design make it perfect for travelers. You can stuff it in your coat pocket while exploring a new city, or simply stow it away in your carry-on (just don’t forget about it)!

Above all, the combination of comfort and packability leads to better versatility. The tight-fitting style allows the Icebreaker Pocket beanie to be worn under a baseball hat or helmet. Suppose you need an extra layer of warmth on the mountain; you can just pull this hat from your ski jacket. It’s basically like the ranch dressing of Merino wool beanies; it goes well with everything.
