great hat! runs large

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Mark from Portland, Oregon on Tuesday, October 18, 2016
After reading the reviews I decided to purchase a medium (being between sizes) knowing I couldn't "fix" a too small hat. Unfortunately the medium was so large I am convinced the small size would of fit comfortably. I shrank the hat in some water and still had to tack a band of fleece material inside the hat band to fill up the space. Still it is my favorite hat to date. I especially like that it rides comfortably above my ears and looks so much better than a regular wool ball cap. The ear flaps are shaped and fit comfortably over my ears and really improve the warmth of the hat. They are also thin enough to not be overly warm or restrictive. Surprisingly they do not change the circumference of the hat tucked inside the hat or pulled down.
