This hat is super comfortable and above all - it's WARM! Isn't that what you want in a hat? I've had at least 3 people whose opinions I mildly respect give me compliments on it. The beauty is in its simplicity, I don't need a fake mowhawk, dangling ropes or a pair of eyes sewn into my hat. Function over form gets it done - although this hat's form is no slouch. So kudos to my utilitarian hat! May you forever keep my head cozy and conservative.
