Very nice. I especially like the cutouts from the 'NOS thread'.

Here is a beanie for only $2.99 . . . at this price, you can get two!

I have several beanies. I only wear them in the cold, though, and one at a time. Thank you for your concern.

SO as it turns out, this is just a commonly held myth. check this out from the BBC:

look for: HATS AND THE COLD


btw, I DO think it's funny when some climb without shirts ... especially in the fall/winter.

I have to admit, though, that I am an occasional for-warmth beenie wearer (beenie weenie?) But am most def not a brah or a gym grunter. I prefer to adorn a brightly colored set of tail feathers and strut about the gym crowing. :)

They are paying homage to the Vikings. It all started with them and those metal beanies that had horns protruding out of the side. It is even emmulated in the head gear for the 'True Warrior' in the Warrior Dash competitions.

Stfu you girl...what do u know? Besides how to project v-easy over the course of months??

U guys are right...at places like brooklyn boulders, there are tons of buff young studz, complete with mustaches, technicolor tattoos, and their sisters jeans.

These dudes are pretty strong, if u consider sessioning the big campus rungs @ a bw of 130 lbs a feat of strength.

That's a lot more accurate.

Edit: substitute "skinny hipsters" for "buff young studs" and you're on the money.

Hmm. This thread makes me happy that I don't care what people wear at the gym, I just climb and keep to myself.

ahh i see the problem. you flail on the warm ups so you want to figure out how to suck less.. sorry a beanie won't help.

try to suck less. then maybe someone will talk to you and you won't have to ask stupid questions on the interwebs.

Jake you are a fucking douche, plain and simple..
but +1 for using interwebs. Rhythm apparently doesn't know what that is

This thread was founded by douchbagery. Thus it will continue to be ran by it. That said. I boulder and rope climb at my local gym. I often wear a hat in the gym, sometimes it's a cap other times a beanie. It's main purpose is to control my long hair. I've never thought twice about what anybody thought of it. I also never thought what someone would think about my breathing on a hard route or problem.

Seems people need to worry more about climbing than fashion or their own insecurities.

There are a number of 'boulderers' at my local gym who don't where shirts and traverse around the gym breathing extremely loud. The volume roughly correlates to the number and hotness of the females present.

The loud breathing I equate to standard douchbaggery.... What is the origin of this beanie radness? Is there logic behind it or is it just a trend?

It's to annoy/confuse internet nerds into posting about it on rock climbing forums.

I wear beanies on the inside. I also breathe loudly sometimes. My shirt usually stays on though.

It is comforting to leave this forum for a month or so and return to find people still talking about a piece of headwear that has nothing to do with actual climbing. That said, nice beanie, karmi!

It's called a toque. It's to keep the brain warm, also some are doped with D30 which protects the cranium.
