"Ihave worn out three and keep getting more..."
I was given my first almost 6 years ago. Since then, I have worn out one and lost at least two and I always replace them. I use mine while skiing, hiking, climbing, sailing, and around town. It is both functional and good looking. It wicks moisture nicely, is very warm, but is still thin enough to squeeze under my climbing helmet which is a big plus for me.I don't see why anyone would buy a more expensive hat than this one.
