Based on the reviews, shoppers love Carhartt beanies. From the “high quality” material to the warmth, comfort and even cuteness, shoppers made sure to note all of the great things about the beanie which scored a 4.8 out of 5 stars at Amazon and a whopping 152,698 customer ratings.
As one shopper wrote, “If you’ve ever owned a Carhartt product, you know exactly what you’re getting. It is functional, comfortable, and built to last. It is a simple, no frills, warm hat. If you have never owned anything by Carhartt, you are missing out, especially if you live where the weather gets bad in the winter. I hate buying things every two or three years because they wear out, and that does not happen with Carhartt.”
The holidays are coming up, so if you need a cheap gift, you can give a beanie away as a stocking stuffer, White Elephant gift or Christmas gift.
