Winterwarrior (Review by Jean-Michel)

I love this tuque. Wearing it, you won't win any fashion awards, but you'll be in the running for the coveted Best Prepared for Winter's Edge Award. The fit feels natural and combined with the fleece, everything stays in place, which is usually not the case with my head shape. Best head covering I have bought in years.

Oh yeah, it's nice and warm and repels the wind.

Amazingly warm and light! (Review by Kemp)

I've worn this hat for entire weekends of backpacking in pouring rain, and in some bitter cold. It always keeps my head super warm, even when it's wet. In fact I don't even realize it's wet until I take it off. Awesome piece of gear!

warm and toasty in cold wind (Review by johnny nitro)

I took this hat on my trip to the Peruvian Andes and wore it above 16k ft. This hat always kept my head warm and comfy despite being in some cold, windy conditions. The material covering the ears is a nice feature as it allows one to hear voices well with the hat covering your ears. I went a bit larger on the size (L/XL) as I usually wear a M size and that fit my head well.

awesome (Review by zipper)

Soft, warm, and not bulky. The ear flaps are great for keeping bitter, cold wind from freezing your inner and outer ears. Fits perfectly snug all around your head- no gaps for cold air to hangout. The Windstopper fleece definitely stops all wind from penetrating.

Wind Warrior Hat™ (Review by By Skinny Steve)

Great product to keep the heat in and prevent chill blaines and frost bite on the ears while staying light weight. Tight fit, but just a hair too small and I wear xtra small military hats (generally 6 7/8). Wish that the ear flags were just a bit longer.Perfect for shoveling snow, running, hiking.

Wind Warrior Hat™ (Review by By Mike in Anchorage)

I have a previous year's edition. By itself for active sports, I'm good to about -25°C. It's tight to your head, so it's easy to put another hat as another layer on top. That's a better combination for climbing and camping. When it's going to be cold or windy, this hat is with me. It survives machine washing in cold water very well.
