Verified Buyer Reviewed by Traci from Wisconsin on Sunday, February 15, 2015I love this hat as its very soft and fits nice. Its ok for warmth on cool days but not for cold days.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by sparklepup from Pittsburgh on Tuesday, February 3, 2015I like this hat. It is one of the few one-sizers that fit my 7 5/8 (XL) head, even covering my ears. It is a pretty color (Dark Thistle) and has a thick, open weave. Because it is open (you can stick your finger through it), it is not for sub-freezing, windy days. But it is great to keep hair from blowing in my face on windy days in the 30s or 40s. The little button on top mentioned by another reviewer does not bother me; I wear hat tightly pulled over my head to capture my hair and cannot see the button myself. I agree with same reviewer who said it would be too big for small heads. I have an order in for the hat in Stone.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by justmeinME from the frozen tundra, almost on Sunday, September 21, 2014It didn't feel itchy to hold or when I first put it on but after a few minutes I do become aware of that 18% wool. It's not like chenille. But it looks ok and I like the color and you can wear it like a beret or a beanie. I wanted it to wear in my freezing office for the next eight months of freezingness. It makes a big difference and it looks ok to wear to work if you have a friendly-casual office like mine (we can wear Nice Jeans.)
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Susan the Eclectic from California on Thursday, June 26, 20141) It really looks good on. (2) It being really stretchy, it covers your whole head and, if you want, you can fold it back. (3) It's really soft feeling. Caveat: I have very sensitive skin, so don't know if it would itch on forehead after a while. It has some wool, which sometimes gets to me. (4) the pattern is very nice, the color as neutral as it comes. Well, there's black. Sometimes you want a change. (5) The stitch is loose, but the yarn reasonably thick, which could allow rain in but also lets the head breathe. I hate it when you take off a hat and your head's damp from sweat.
Reviewed by Kris from Wichita on Thursday, January 9, 2014Overall I really love this hat. I bought the plum color and it is really complimentary to my skin tone and goes well with my white coat I wear in the winter.
"Boucle" means a three-ply yarn that is loosely woven for a "rough" texture. In this hat, it is more bumpy and fuzzy. So it is a loose weave for a artsy chic look. The hat was not warm enough for this recent blast of artic weather (a.k.a. "polar vortex") but for weather in the 20-30 degree Fahrenheit range, for me at least, was very comfortable. This hat lies flat so I can envision why ExOfficio markets it for traveling. It is wool/acryclic/nylon mix so it is washable, warm, and very soft.
A couple of things I wished I'd known before purchasing: 1) There is a little top button that is really pronounced when you're wearing it. It sticks up making a little point at the crown of your head. It is cute but this feature almost made me return the item since it veers on being too cute for my tastes. 2) If you have a small head, this hat will be too big. It is almost to big for my medium-sized head. The boucle weave expands considerably, so there's lots of "space" for expansion. If you have dreads or thick hair you want to pile up inside, this hat is perfect.
For the price and ExOfficio's signature quality, I would highly recommend this cute hat.
