Unfortunately I found that the hat I bought was not actually waterproof, which rather defeated the object of buying it in the first place.
While on holiday I wore it on the one rainy day we had and it became totally sodden and my head was soaking wet. It took two days for the hat to then fully dry out when left to drip dry in the bathroom during which time it was unusable.
I also noticed that when the hat was being worn the inner and outer layers tended to drift apart and so I had to keep pulling it down for it to fit properly.
The cheaper beanie I had that this was meant to replace actually does a better job of keeping your head dry and so I'll be sticking with that.

all gear has its limitations - this counts top spec brands.

All gear has its limitations? OK. But the limitations are given in the specifications and this beanie hat is said by its maufacturer to be WATERPROOF. Any and everybody who purchases this beanie can and should expect that it is waterproof. Now, if you light a match to it THAN you are going beyond its limitations because its not said to be fireproof.

It sounds like the reviewer had to stretch the beanie to get it on as the layers kept slipping and so let the water through the gaps in the fabric. Maybe it would have been different with the next size up??
