I need a beanie for everyday wear, recess duty, biking, and skiing. This one is brilliant and warm, just a bit too far over my eyes when pulled tightly. It's better for everyday than for exercising - too hot for biking. I"m pleased overall.

I bought this only for recreational use and it's perfect for that. It's soft & fuzzy, warm & cozy. I haven't taken it out hiking or skiing but it's nice around town. I only gave it a 4 because the logo is so bold. I might have preferred the mountain hardwear posh beanie only for that reason.

Very nice hat. Fits my rather large head well. Pretty color and style. The thing that really bothers me is that the "Columbia" logo is huge, embroidered in white on the front outside of the hat. This is too blatant branding and detracts from the hat's attractiveness. I would have given it five stars otherwise. So I recommend it with reservations. For backwoods hiking it is fine.
