Best cold weather hat ever
This had is gorgeously warm. I wear it with the chin strap cinched up asleep in my tent at night, keeping my head warm, without loosing is in the middle of the night. The ear covers make a remarkable difference in terms or warmth. The windstopping fabric is terrific. Winner all around. I would however like some more colourful styles without any black ;-)
Outdoor Research Peruvian Hat
Finially, a good fitting hat that I can wear without having it ride up on my head and uncover my ears. Also when secured, an overhanging limb cannot pull it off your head. This hat is warm for its weight and really blocks wind.
I love this hat!
I love my hat! I got the purple and black, and it looks very nice. It keeps my head warm without being sweaty or itchy, and it stays in place very well. This is important because sometimes winter hats shift which pulls my hair to different places and ends up leaving me very uncomfortable. Not a problem here. I have a 22.5 inch head and ordered the large. I wouldn't mind if there was a smidgen more room, but it fits just like it should. If I fold the earflaps up to take the hat off and put it on, then I can keep from messing up my hair at work, which is nice. I love the chin strap because it helps keep it in place plus it holds the earflaps down, although they are slightly cupped too. When I was out in the very chilly strong wind, the only part of my head that was cold was my cheeks and nose. My ears couldn't feel a thing. I usually make my own hats, and bought this one because I didn't have enough time to make an earflap hat, but I am glad because this is my favorite very-cold weather hat now, plus it looks cute.
