Love this hat. Long curved bill shades the annoying low winter sun. The wool ear flaps don't take up much space inside the cap, but are great to have when the winds start to give a chill. Very good fit on my large head.

I have several of these that I leave in different places. This is a high quality cap, and the Gore-Tex adds additional protection from wind and rain. It looks dressier than most wool caps. It is not as warm as a heavy insulated cap, but it will get you by in most situations. The bill is a little shorter than most American baseball caps. As other reviewers have noted these tend to run big. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is that the sizing will vary a little from cap to cap. Better to wear it a little large than to have a cap that is too small.

I bought this cap for my husband early last fall. A friend from South Africa saw the cap & asked if I would try to find him one. Our friend comes over to the U.S. during January & February each year which of course is our coldest time. He was freezing his head & ears. My husband highly recommends this cap for cold weather. He likes the fact that it does not get wet, has a closed back and ear flaps to cover his ears when the wind is blowing. Well made.

This is the second Gottmann hat I purchased this year. To be honest I like the non gore tex model of the same hat better. This hat is lighter weight than the non gtx and doesen't hold it's shape as well.. It's also not as warm as the non gtx. Other than that Its very well made and draws compliments. It's a very good hat, I just like it's non gtx version better.

Bought this for my husband. Thought it was a good idea, but as other reviewers ha said runs big. I thought it would fit him since his head is large but it was too big and next smaller size is not available. So it's going back.

High quality cap - great fit and feel, deep, rich colors, and won't give you "hat head." For reference, I wear a 7 3/8 baseball cap in New Era baseball caps, and the medium size in this product fits fine.

Originally I purchased an XL which was a bit loose, Wool and leather hats are "willing" to change materials. An easy fix by warm water immersion and air drying until some moisture remains, then wear it and there you have it a perfect fit to your specific head size. I regularly hand wash mine and let to almost dry until I again wear it to fully dry conforming to my head shape without binding or pressure. The hat looks beautiful and is a hit with my friends. I just purchased 2 more. It is always better to err on the bigger size than too tight. The tight one can also be stretched.
