Men's Sprint Beanie
Not what expected
I bought this beanie for my boyfriend for Christmas per his request. When it arrived I immediately loved the fabric and the color. However, the shape of the beanie does not match the picture at all. It looks similar to a traditional beanie online but there are ear flaps that are not shown. Unfortunately, the ear flaps affect the way that it fits and looks. There is no way to take it back. I wish it was carried in store so that you can see the actual shape of it or a better online picture.

Great toque for cycling
I've been looking for a lightweight toque that would fit under my bike helmet and this has fit the bill perfectly. I have a massive head so I was convinced before even going into the store that this would ride up over my ears as I moved around. I was pleasantly surprised to find I was wrong! The material is exceptionally comfortable while still allowing for some airflow. This has been my first Lululemon purchase in quite awhile as I have been disappointed with the quality/consistency of the clothing. I'm hoping this is a turning point.

The Rulu fabric used in this toque is really nice. It's soft, light, and breathable. Call me crazy but I think Rulu feels even nicer than Luon. The only slight drawback I can think of is that the beanie likes to "ride up" my ears and I have to pull the beanie back down over my ears often.
I look forward to trying other gear made with Rulu.

light, not too warm, foldable and good fit
Just what I was looking for - a beanie that is not overly warm like wool. I've even worn it in the studio a couple times and by folding the generous excess upward over the ears it has done great.
Fold the flaps back down when heading outside and it is great for cold runs. I wouldn't use it under a helmet for skiing or something else where you'd be in the colder weather for longer times, but it functions very well for its purpose.
I got the patterned grey, black and white version which is only slightly more visible than the black. I really hope they continue this product but provide some brighter colors. All the running accessories seem to highly feature black. Maybe you lads and ladies up in BC never have to run on a trail or beside a road where it would be good and safe to be visible, but I really hope you consider expanding the color palette to safe versions. The minuscule company logo is not nearly reflective enough to compensate.
Finally, the cut of the hat is fairly unique: three sides are longish and one is short. The short side is just slightly too short, I think, to provide the flexibility of pulling it down over the ears or folding it up over them when desired.

Meh. Buy in store -- Not online
Bought the beanie. Soft. fits well (I have a big head, so that was nice) The main problem I have is that it doesn't look how it is shown on the site. The website shows heathered dark bottom with lighter heathered top. In reality, it's reversed (Picture to show). Honestly wouldn't have purchased knowing that... Like the online one way better. This combo looks like I got the scrap ends of each fabric in my beanie. Pretty disappointed actually. Just be careful I guess if you plan on buying it -- may not look as shown. Even the logo isn't the silver reflective one, its a dark black logo.
