Does the job well. Comfortable waterproof and warm.

Great hat. Have Lowe alpine Mtn Cap, but unwilling to pay £30-00 + for a spare. This is a classic. Similar design and light. Not heavy material like Triplepoint, but great and is waterproof. Breathes reasonably well, and even my LA one was full of moisture on a cold day from perspiration. Not sure any hat can totally manage the heat which the head generates. Wear a hat in winter because that is where most of the heat is lost. Very true, hence the build up of perspiration. If you expect Miracles then you will not get them in any outdoor clothing. This does what is designed to, at a reasonable price with a quality finish. Versatile hat that does what others do for an extra £20-00. Would recommend and buy again. Just remember you will always get some perspiration around the forehead and side of the head owing to the tight fit.The erst of the hat keeps you warm and does not hold moisture and, When you stop the hard effort of a mountain ascent this moisture will disappear after a while. I have a 56cm head and bought the Small/Medium [here sized as Medium]. Fitted nicely.
If you really want something waterproof and less warm skin is just that. Be reasonable in your expectations!
