    The hat seems great! However we put it away for Santa to deliver. Can't give it 5 because he has not put it on or used it yet, but looks great and looks and feels like quality.

    This hat is cozy with generous neck and ear coverage and it is really windproof. The sizing may be problematic, though. The large size is the same as a woman's one-size-fits-most. The draw cord does not help to reduce the size. It makes the ear flaps open up instead of hugging the head and the brim still falls over the eyes. The draw cord is located on the lower edge, as if it should snug the hat around the lower part of the head. In order to really change size, and keep the brim from falling in the eyes, the draw cord should be in the space where the hat portion and the ear/neck portion join.

    We ordered the largest size after reading reviews for our 2.5 and 4 year old figuring it would fit one of them. It's too large for our youngest and it kept falling over his eyes. Fits our 4 yr old great. He loves it. We live in the wet northwest and thought this would be great for wet cold days. He also doesn't like when snow falls off the trees onto him while snowshoeing and this will solve that problem and keep him dry. Glad we'll be able to get several years out of it. The folding brim is also a nice feature!

    Nice waterproof outside fabric, very soft inside fabric, beak folds so you don't have to worry about ruining it in storage. My son is 4 with a large round noggin, and it fits him but without any room for growing. Perhaps because his head is large, the ear flaps don't go down very far. I would say that they will protect his ears a bit from wind and cold, but that his ears are still visible, which is why I think it would be a good winter hat for day to day, but if it were super cold I'd put a hat on him with the real lumberjack ear flaps. Very nice looking, very comfortable, and he is more than happy to wear it and keep the winter sun out of his eyes.

    Love these hats for my 2 little girls. We live in Southeast Alaska and it rains alot, these are great for walking to the bus stop, keeps the kids dry and warm! LOVE that they are adjustable to fit any size little head, with lots of room to grow!

    Based on some other comments, I ordered the medium for my 8 year old son, but the large might have been the way to go. So the manufacturer's sizing is probably accurate. I decided to keep it but it's snug on his head. He loves the ear flaps and the nylon will keep him dry on snowy days.

    It's difficult to find a hat of this style now. I love the earflaps and brim to keep the sun out of my eyes. Good for skiing or snowshoeing. A nice feature is the magnets to keep the ear flaps folded up on warmer days. The sizing is off - I normally wear a children's large but had to return that for a medium which is supposed to be for 3-6 year olds. I know I'm a small adult but not that small!
