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.

My head is size 7 1/8 and the L/XL is very snug on my head. It will be too small if your head is larger than 7 1/4. The S/M fits my 8 year old daughter. Decent product as with all OR stuff though. The cap is a little tall by today's standards - shape is high profile - closer to trucker cap than say, golf cap.

very useful hat - perhaps more for inclement weather. comfortable fit. cap style is a little military looking, a bit fidel castro-ish. i would have preferred a longer bill. fold-out flaps provide great ear protection
