A nice, light hat
December 30, 2011

This hat is warm but lightweight enough to carry in your pocket. Good all over coverage including ears. Pretty good at protecting you against the wind. I like it and will use it a lot.

Lightweight Performer
April 09, 2012

This hat is light, but not on quality or warmth. I used this during witnter snowshoe treks day and night in temps ranging from 30F down to 0F. The hat breathes well to wick away excess sweat. It blocks wind very well and maintains warmth very adequately. The fleece material on the inside is quite comfortable. My only complaint is that the elastic trim feels like you are putting on a shower cap and can present some initial uncomfortable pressure on the back of the neck. Nevertheless, the discomfort subsides (I guess it conforms to shape) and I was able to wear the hat for hours without resulting discomfort, pain, chaffing or band marks. This hat is especially great if you engage in high energy winter activity where you need warmth and wicking and adjustibility to changing temps.

OR Alpine Hat

This hat is windproof which keeps my head and ears warm. I just don't hear the wind as much with this hat on. The extended section around back is very nice for keeping my ears completely covered and it never rides up like other hats.

Pros: Great design, Build quality

I enjoy the hat and wear if often for my outdoor activity such as sailing, jogging, walking, and etc.

Keeps me nice and toasty
January 06, 2014

I ordered a large for my husband and it fit perfectly. It's very well made. He uses it under his bike helmet when riding in the cold. The ear protection provided has been wonderful. I used it once when we were hiking in some cold windy weather and I also found it to be very warm and comfortable.

Pros: Great design, Performance, Great value
