- Soft & Warm (Review by Elias)
I bought this hat as a stay-warm-in-winter replacement for the Svalbard hat I lost last year. I'm not at all disappointed with this items functionality. It keeps my bald head warm in very cold weather. The material is thick, tightly-woven lambs wool and is pretty soft to the touch. I haven't put this through the ringer yet, so I can't speak for any issues with the stitching, time will tell, and if it becomes an issue I'll report back. After reading a review that mentioned a crinkling noise due to the windstopper material, I put the hat on to check it out. Personally I didn't notice anything unusual.
Only complaint! It's just too big for me! I washed it in hot water and then threw it in the dryer...its a bit better now, but I still end up with either a funny tuft of hat above my head, or a blindfold. I know it's impractical to make these hats in multiple sizes... but I sure could use a S/M option.

- Could be better (Review by Kyle)
While this hat is very warm, I have found that it has two defects. The first is that the fabric used in the windproof liner around the ears is very noisy. Every time I turn my head, my ears fill with a crinkling noise. I don't like wearing this hat in the woods because it makes it hard to hear anything happening around you. I was also disappointment with stitching that holds in the windproof liner. It has deteriorated in several spots and occasionally when putting the hat on I hear the top of another stitch bursting.

I wear this hat when I'm working or playing outside. It's very comfortable and looks really cool.
