I absolutely love this hat it fits nice and snug and not bulky like some winter caps, it's extremely warm and keeps your head nice and toasty definitely worth the money...
The hat fits fine the inside very comfortable for long wear will be warm for sure it's summer time now but I have no doubt it will keep you warm
I've had this hat for two winters now and it is my favorite hat for working or hunting in the cold. Very comfortable and warm.
Good, tight-fitting hat that does keep the cold and wind off your head. I wear the L/XL size which fits tight. Hat stays in place but has tendency to ride up leaving ear lobes exposed.
I work for a PD, and the beanies they issue are neither windproof or waterproof. They also issue a ball cap that does nothing. I have had the Outdoor Research Wind Pro Hat before, and I lost it...well, due to the winter season approaching I had to buy it again. I'm wearing it today in a rainstorm, and my head is the only thing that is dry. My CPL just saw the hat and is whining that it is not department issue. Yep, you guessed it, I will continue to wear the hat and risk getting in trouble. I like the hat that much.
There is now better go buy one if you live in colder climate. Hat is T&A end of review.
Needed a good beanie to keep warm when responding on calls. The fact it blocks wind is amazing. It's super warm but also breathes, it's very stretchy and forms to your head. The inside is also extremely soft. My one and only issue is that the large is quite large. I wear a 7 1/2, to fit flush have to pull it down almost to eye brows. Not a huge issue.
I got tired of the wind cutting through the standard black watch cap I was issued, so I wanted to get a plain looking fleece cap in coyote. I wear a 7 1/4 in ball cap size and the smaller size fit just fine. One thing I hear about fleece caps is how most are not very elastic. That is not the case with this one. It stretches right over my head without squeezing uncomfortably. The only bad thing I have to say about it is there is just a little extra room on top. Unless you pull the cap down to your eyebrows you will have a little bit of material poking up. In most cases it is almost unnoticeable and doesn't effect functionality. I guess this depends on the size and shape of your gourd but I always thought mine was a bit larger than normal. In either case, I highly recommend this hat. It is functional without being flashy.
Excellent!! would buy again. Great service from SKD !!
