Need something to keep my head warm with Ecrin Roc

What are you bald guys using for head warm under your helmets? Ive been using a beanie but it gets loose at times and rolls around. My helmet is an Ecrin Roc.
Thanks in Advance.

You might try a Buff whether you are bald or not.

This is a very thin synthetic tube, and you can stretch it to go from neck to the top of the head, or you can pull it down to uncover the face, or you can pull it up off the neck. It is pretty adaptable, but it is not extremely warm.

I use a thin balaclava, which I keep inside the top of my Ecrin Roc helmet. Light weight, soft, warm and very compact. Also very inexpensive.

Hi
I use Lavacore Hood. Very hot and lightweight. You may find it in dive shop. I also transported at all times under the Ecrin Roc and used it as needed. Unfortunately, I had to change my helmet last year and the new helmets no longer allow this configuration. You are lucky to still have a functional Ecrin Roc.

I wish Petzl would bring back the Ecrin Roc or a new version of it. Having the ability to adjust the head size with those wheels has come in handy many times.
