The one complaint I have about the Possumdown beanie is that it is heavier than advertized. Mine is 2.1 ounces. The reason I love it is because it's so large and very warm, The extra coverage, and the ability to layer this over the tight fitting hood of my Nomad hoodie makes this an essential part of my cold weather kit. Another reviewer brought up the Integral Designs Primalid, which weighs the same amount, but for my part, I'm not a big fan of Primaloft. The slightest bit of pressure is enough to reduce its loft to zero and then you just have a windproof hat. With a wool beanie, you can lay on it, get it wet, put as much pressure on it as possible, and it will still retain its loft and ability to warm.
