This is for people with: (a) big heads (e.g. they find that baseball caps never stay on) and/or (b) big hair (e.g. like dreadlocks)
As it is, this beanie functions perfectly in that regard. It stays on my head and doesn't fall over my eyes. The material is as warm as wool but without that scratchy itchy feeling that increases has your forehead starts to sweat. I look good wearing it, my curly hair pushing out of the back and sides in random and playful ways.
