The Run Vibe Beanie and the DryLete Loose-Fit Beanie are my two favorite winter beanies from Saucony. The DryLete Beanie is thinner than the Run Vibe but helps protect from the biting winter wind. It is tight enough that I can just put my hair in a ponytail or braid and tuck it up in to the hat and it stays put for 20+ miles.
One of my favorite aspects of this hat is that it is thin enough to be worn under other Saucony style baseball hats or over top of them to keep my ears warm. When I run in the late night hours I often wear a headlamp which at times can feel uncomfortable if I am not wearing a baseball style hat. The Beanie keeps my ears and head warm while the other hat keeps my forehead from hurting.
The hat comes in 4 different colors, I have the Vizipro pink which I LOVE LOVE LOVE and the grey, which I also really like but in a different way. It also comes in all black and Vizipro orange, both of which might be added to my Saucony collection soon.

The reflective logos are subtle enough to not scream SAUCONY but visible enough that the reflective helps be seen at night or in the early morning hours.
This hat at $22 is a great addition to your winter running wardrobe.
