Verified Buyer Reviewed by MacYoda from Dagobah on Monday, April 20, 2015Nice hat, smooth wool fibers. I have owned Harris Tweed versions of this hat with Goretex, those hats had buttons holding the brim to the front of the hat, unsnap the buttons and the hat gets bigger and warmer, but those hats were thicker and larger over all. I really loved those hats.
This hat has no such buttons, this one is thinner overall and rolls up small enough to put in a side pocket of a jacket, maybe because of this I won't lose it so easily. This hat is very similar to those Harris Tweed hats, it is a warm hat but not super warm or versatile enough for extreme cold. The Harris Tweeds worked well even if ice were caked on the outside of the hat and wind was blowing like crazy, it would be very warm inside the hat. They were great ski hats, this one will probably work well for skiing too but not if it becomes very windy, then I will have to run inside.
This is an excellent hat for medium cold, 30F with no wind, 35F with wind, to a lot warmer,
I notice this type, Gottmann wool Goretex, is more expensive than others of this type, now days very few have Goretex. I suppose it is a little more stylish than others of this type and even other hat styles. I does fit very snuggly and looks very smooth even with the ears out, so it is somewhat cool style wise, it makes me look like Robert Redford in The Sting, but still I won't write home about it.
So I will give it 4 to 4.5 stars.

Reviewed by Johnny B Goode from Coastal Delaware on Tuesday, February 25, 2014This is a highly versatile accessory. I paired this cap with a wool softshell jacket for all around use in Coastal Delaware. I cannot be happier with the cap's performance. The waterproof nature of it allows me to wear it in nearly any weather conditions except a heavy driving rain, in which I would simply opt for a hooded rain parka anyway. The Goretex also increases its wind resistance, making it warmer without bulky insulation. The same is true for the ear flap that simply covers your ears and the back of your head, keeping most wind out and some warmth in. What I particularly like is that it is functional, transformable (with the foldaway ear flap) and generally good looking. It looks good with a tie and blazer or overcoat/peacoat, and it doesn't overdress a fleece. I found the fit to be dead-on, having checked my hat size against a similar cap I already own that fits well. I own a few other hats that have a fold-away ear flap, and none of them do so as effectively as this cap - when it is stowed, you neither see it nor feel it. Perhaps the best endorsement I can bestow upon it is that my father remarked that it was a handsome cap, and when I showed him the ear flap and pointed out the Goretex protection, his jaw dropped in awe, particularly learning it is indeed wool. I know what to give him for Christmas this year.
Reviewed by HB from Virginia on Tuesday, January 21, 2014I use this hat for trail hiking along the James River in Virginia. It fits very comfortably and is sized correctly. The hat is warm on a cold day, but breathes and does not trap moisture on strenuous walks. It is on the expensive side, but well worth it for a high quality hat.
Reviewed by Windlady from NY on Monday, January 20, 2014The driving hat keeps my husband's ears and head warm and dry in our snowy, frigid and windy weather. It's a bonus that a hat with ear flaps looks attractive as well as being protective.

“I would really like to order this hat but am put off by the obvious branding tag. Can the tacky "Goretex" tag that is stitched to the outside be carefully removed without compromising the integrity of the seam stitching?|Thank you.”
Sorry but the tag probably cannot be removed without damaging the stitching.
“what size do i need? I measure the circumference of my head at just over 22" Large or extra Large?”
For questions regarding sizing please refer to our sizing chart:|http://www.sierratradingpost.com/lp2/SizeChart.html
Large for 22". My head is 24.5"; the XL fits me great.
