Ibex Meru Hat Reviews
There were only a few reviews on Amazon but the manufacturers site offers numerous reviews with only positive ratings. Most reviewers talked about how the Ibex Meru Hat is lightweight, warm, breathable while being attractive and durable.
A typical reviewer state that this is really the best riding hat you can buy, no seams, well not any that leave marks or are uncomfortable.
One person stated they bought the hat to serve both as a liner and as lighter cover for warmer weather. Another stated they wear this hat under my helmet when temps are between 25 and 45 and that it does not get any better.
The only cons anyone mentioned concerned fit with a few people mentioning that the one size fits all type hat was too big for them.
If you are looking for a lightweight alternative wool hat for winter cycling look no further than the Ibex Meru Hat.
