This hat is very comfortable, a good size for my medium-size head, and also warm and non-itchy. It also looks quite good, in a cheerful blue! The length is adjustable (it is turned up at the bottom) and can cover the ears if you need. Also very lightweight and small when folded up - so easy to stash in a pocket until wanted. At this price (under ten pounds), I think it is outstanding value. It goes alongside my Powerstretch beanie from Outdoor Designs as a nice warm hat for wet and cold Scottish weather. I may be buying a spare, perhaps in black this time.
