Anyone who has ever used Gore Windstopper material will know that this material is not the soft high pile snuggly fleece. It is fairly thin and does not provide a tremendous amount of insulation. However, with the right fit and during a workout, it does an amazing job of keeping the wind from cutting into you. I used this hat for the first time today on a short climb (4,000 vertical). It was about 15 degrees at the trailhead and 6 degrees on top. I used a beanie for the ascent and didn't use this hat until I reached the top. While I will say that my head was not really cold, it wasn't super warm either. It think this is because it is a little loose on my head. Had I sat around for long, it would have gotten colder. If I put a small fleece beanie underneath, it will be bombproof and totally warm. It is very well made with comfortable seams and it is shaped perfectly for a good fit to cover the ears and forehead.
