FirstSpear Friday Focus – FirstSpear Beanie

Friday, November 20th, 2015


For this week’s Friday Focus, we’re taking a look at the FirstSpear Beanie. The counterpart to the FirstSpear Neckie, the FS Beanie is constructed from Polartec anti-microbial fabric. This keeps the wearer warm and has moisture-wicking properties, plus the Beanie is constructed with just enough extra material to double up over the wearer’s ears if it gets just a bit too cold. Additionally, the FS Beanie is built with flat seams for wear under a helmet, and it features low-profile pile in key areas to attach IFF.

Available in Black and Coyote. – FS Beanie
