Cuts wind great but awkward

A light amount of insulation make this hat good for moderate activity when cold (-5C - -25C). It's light, easy to tuck away, and the draw string works to batten the hatches or flip up the ears. It fits nicely under a helmet and cuts wind great when cinched. What keeps me from wearing this hat often is it looks dorky and doesn't feel cozy warm, so for kicking around you'll want a different hat on a colder day. Also, it muffles a lot of sound, maybe it's the Windstopper.

I really like this hat a lot! It's just enough to keep the wind out and the warmth in. This fits perfect under a helmet.

great for bicycles in the winter

5

There's nothing else like that for cycling in the winter (I guess "urban commuting", Brooklyn, you know...). With a polartec power stretch and gore-tex hoods over it it's still slim enough to fit under a large helmet. Looks great, too, when you don't need the hoods... One of the best winter accessories ever designed. Period.

Make sure you get the right size

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.

Keeps my head and ears warm

5

This is a great hat when hiking in cold and windy conditions. It keeps my head and ears warm, which is what I want it to do. If there is light to medium rain (or it's sunny) than I cover it with my OR Drifter Gore Tex hat. If it's heavy rain than I add my rain jacket hood. It's not really stylish (to me) but a warm head when hiking is what I want and this hat delivers.

I wear a 7 5/8" cap, I ordered a large Peruvian hat. Is large the right size?

Swagger

Hi Swagger, The large may be too tight, the Ear Band Width is listed as 11.5". If we double that number we get 23" which is between a 7 1/4 and 7 3/8 hat size. The size XL has an ear band width of 12.25", it would be a little bit bigger than a 7 3/4" hat size and would fit more comfortably. Thanks for contacting OR,

Paul
