Had to puff up my favorite hats ratings

Can't believe this is on clearance rather than sold out - well the picture of it stinks, yeah. I bought like 10 hats last year when the high was like 9 degrees all February. I bought 3 OR hats and really liked this the best. The Frostline is the warmest but it's a bit dorky and that's another review. This looks like a beany on your head NOT a hot air balloon as in the picture. And it's the best beany I've had as it is wind proof and pretty much waterproof (I've only worn it in snow and no seepage even when it was melting. Very comfortable on the head. Wool beanies always make my scalp itch and the constant squeeze is a bit much. With the wool only at the bottom of this hat it's like ear warmers connected to a nylon hat, which suits me very well. And if it gets really cold a Smartwool beanie fit under it just like layering under a light shell. With the primaloft insulation I only did that when sitting in zero degrees weather for hours, but it worked. Anyway, great hat and at this price put it in the car for emergencies like I did with the 3rd one I bought. Ohhh, It even fit under my bike helmet for real cold days and was very nice.
