I got the larger size but it's still so tight that it leaves a red stripe on my forehead when I remove it. But it sure won't blow off in the wind. The ear flaps fold up nicely out of sight. The hat is light weight and wouldn't be very warm when it's real cold.

This hat is made of a tight-woven thick material which makes it great for keeping the head warm in cold breezy weather. It could be used at some temperatures where a lighter cap would not be warm enough. As such, this hat is not a good choice for warmer temperatures where a hat is needed for sun protection but a lack of breathability would cause over-heating. I liked the built-in crease in the middle of the brim. I could fold the hat in half and stuff it into an outer pocket on my pack without mangling the brim.
I wish the hat had a velcro strap in back for adjusting size. The hat is supposed to stretch to fit different sizes but the stretchiness is not enough. Sometimes it is nice to be able to wear a hat over a balaclava or in calm conditions to wear a hat loose for some ventilation. Also, I like to close the velcro strap around the retainer for my sunglasses to serve as a keeper in case a gust blows the hat off my head.

I wore this hat this past weekend and I definitely give it a thumbs up. This is a great hat for the cooler weather for sure. I will say this, it's too soon to give it 5 stars but I will give it 4 stars at this point. The material is great - it has a slight rain shedding soft shell feel to it. The flip down ear flaps are nice to have and really shield the wind from your ears.
