"This is a great windblocker for your ears"
Bought a large (I'm 7 3/8) and fit is great. Understand that you will look like a goober and it will leave you with hat hair that will cause people to grimace. But your head will be warm and your ears unfazed by gale force winds. To retain a modicum of style, don't lash it under your chin. Do it though if social acceptance is not on your agenda.
I bought this for my poor bald husband. HE LOVES THIS THING!! It is super warm and he has already dug it out to use this year. He also has a HUGE head and it actually fit him (which honestly is rare!). Even better, he looks hot in it.I would definitely get this puppy if you have a big head. It actually fits. And if you are bald, it can only help!
I've been wearing this hat (have had several) for years mountaineering, downhill and backcountry skiing. The windstopper material, unless fleece or wool used in other hats, is just about impervious to wind, so you can ski fast or be in high winds, even at 0'F, and not suffer from the elements. Also comfortable. The flaps come down the side of your head and can be cinched with the cord and lock to keep wind from blowing up the side of the hat; not the most modern style but definitely gets the job done.
