LOVE this hat, bought it a couple months and have been using it all winter:It's stylish. I get complements each time I wear it. The blue is a really nice & bright, and makes it easy for my friends to spot me in a crowd or on the slopes.It's comfy. It definitely gives you the slouchy i'm-pretty-rad-at-snowboarding look. Seriously. I've been asked, do you snowboard? I don't. But I like to pretend. It's warm. I had doubts, since it's not a super tight weave, but it definitely keeps your head and ears warm (though my long hard helps). I've actually had to take it off a couple times when skiing in near freezing weather because I was getting a bit toasty. Overall, highly recommended!
