This is a great cold weather hat, very warm into the mid 20's. The earband is great. It protects the ears, which are usually suseptable to cold winds very well. I have never bought a Windstopper product until now and all I have to say is WOW!! What a difference it makes compared to just fleece. Very warm, sometimes too warm. Doesnt breath real well if you are highly active (XC skiing). Sill, 5 stars!

Warm, Breathable, and did I mention warm. The Wind Stopper really helps this hat when the weather is at its worse. I recently was wearing this hat in -20 degree weather and was very pleased. The side cut for the ears really helps keep this hat snug to your head and your ears completely covered. Two thumbs up ... errr 5 stars.

The windstopper makes ALL the difference. I wore it days at a time in the 30F range, but with winds in the 25 knots range. It does reduce the hearing ability but it is awesome on ear warmth. My only complaint is I often found it would shift left or right causing a fashion faux paux around super models in the mountains.

Great Hat!

Mountain Hardwear consistently produces high quality gear. This hat will keep you toasty warm for any cold weather activity.

This is a warm hat. Great craftsmanship. Thick fabric makes hearing any partner more difficult and if there is a howling wind out - forget about it. I also noticed that the hat does not breathe real well for me and stayed wet (damp) on the inside the last time I had it out at 15 degrees in a steady snow (damp but not cold).

This hat is my first choice for winter and the shoulder seasons here in Colorado. I find it a little too warm for much of the rest of the year. If the temps will be borderline for this hat I typically throw it in my backpack and wear a light micro fleece hat. The weight is negligible. Highly recommended for cold conditions!

This hat is really warm and comfy but I don't take it to the mountains for active use because it tends to ride up and leave my lower ears exposed. I use my OR flap hat instead, it ties down and stays down. If MH made a flap hat with this combination of materials I would buy it. I do wear this hat around camp or town in the winter, though.

Has performed very well for me in temps down to 0, keeps you warm even with snow and freezing rain falling, and fits/looks better than the usual $3 stocking cap. 5 stars!

This is my favorite hat. The Windstopper feature is the winner. It wicks sweat great. I combine this with turtle fur neck gaiter and I'm cooking. This combo has taken me to 35 below zero conditions and worked great.

HotovenSweet hat!

Best hat ever, just make sure you get the right size. If you get it to big, it will stick up like a pyramid on top of your head. I have to get a smaller one because of that. other than that, its super warm and stops all wind.

I have this hat for a few years now. The good side is that it is very warm. I don't like that you can not hear very well wile wearing it. For me it was an annoying issue but solved it by punturing it with with a needle at the ears - lots of tiny holes and it is OK.
