This hat is gorgeous and oh so warm! The color is beautiful, the fit is great, and the inside and ear flaps are sooo warm! I didn't bother measuring my head before I purchased it. I figured how big (or small) can my head really be? I think it's a pretty genric size that would fit a lot of heads. Normally, I don't even wear hats most of the time, but this was was so beautiful I just had to buy it. If you have the opportunity to get this hat, do it. You won't be disappointed.

While I haven't winter tested it yet, it will be warm (merino wool) and comfortable (it's fleece lined) so it's soft against your skin. I like the style which covers the ears and can be tied if necessary. Overall, very pleased with this purchase.

Kootenay is great becuase they make quality wool hats made in Canada. The only issue with this hat is the pom-pom is attached with a clear zip tie - seems a bit out of place on an otherwise awesome item. Other Kootenay hats don't have this.

I was looking for an attractive "throw it on and walk" hat that will keep my head/ears warm when I take the dogs out at night (wearing a headlamp!) and this hat is beautiful and soft inside AND it fits my little head. LOVE!
