The quality of this hat is great. My boyfriend absolutely loves it. He usually wears a medium fedora or other dress-type hat, but needed a large in this beanie. It is definitely windproof and will keep your ears warm on those cold windy days.
"Great hat, great coverage, blocks wind well"
I've been wanting one of these since a buddy had one on a backpacking trip. I don't know why I waited so long to wrap my 23 1/2" melon in one of these. The large was too big and I returned it for a medium. It fit perfect. What I like is the stretch cuff, which holds nicely even when sleeping with it on while camping. It's not too snug and very unlike the standard knit caps that end up being pulled down around your face during sleep while cold weather camping. All in all it's very warm and will be my "go to" hat for colder weather. I will be getting another one, along with one for my son.
"The perfect beanie and warmth for your head"
I received this beanie au gratis with a Moosejaw order and let me say I gladly would have paid retail for it. The fact that the sides come down and cradle your ears is invaluable in cold or windy conditions. The windstopper keeps the wind out. Ive ditched all my other lesser beanies for this piece of gear. Its elastic and should fit multiple head sizes, dries quickly and very lightweight. Can stuff in a jacket pocket and not know its there. It is one of my go to items for my cold weather kit. The only downside is sometimes it makes earphones fall out if you're walking around, but it does what it is designed to do with technical finesse.
