Good hat for such a low price--nicer than I thought it would be--you can't go wrong at this price! While not exactly a fashion statement, this hat would certainly keep you warm for short outdoor treks. It is a bit snug, but not enough to say that it is 1/2 size smaller than expected. It is more squared off at the top than many of the other hats of this type, but I suppose that will lessen somewhat with wear. The fur does not completely line the hat (I've only found one really expensive hat that does that, and it was way beyond my price range)--the crown is only lightly insulated (maybe it would be much too warm or stuffy otherwise) but if you are out in extreme cold for an extended period of time, say working, camping, hiking, I don't think this hat is rugged enough or would offer sufficient protection--although perhaps you could purchase a size up and wear a wool beanie or skull cap underneath for extra warmth.
