Fantastic hat! The face guard performs well down to low teen temperatures in case you're caught without a face mask.

Awesome hat. I put this hat threw some tough conditions last Winter, and it really provided great warmth. The face mask is an added bonus and surprisingly is quite warm in pretty low temperatures. I had it at work when a Noreastern blew in, it was about 10 degrees outside and it kept me warm when I thought it wouldn't do the job. It is also very comfortable with a faux fur lining. I think most people would be happy with this hat, especially people doing physical activities outside. It's definitely in my top 5 Winter Hats for freezing temperatures. One other thing, I have a huge head and the largest size fits me very well.

I ordered extra large and was concerned that it might be too loose, but in fact the extra large fits my usually just-plain-large head fine. This hat is thin. Now I have to tell you that many years ago I remember the first time I ever saw a Styrofoam coffee cup I picked it up and thought the coffee must be lukewarm and took a big gulp. That was an experience in underestimation of insulating ability I will never forget. So perhaps this unfamiliar thin material this hat is made from has remarkable insulating ability. I don't know. It is no longer cold enough outside to tell. But I can say this hat is a lot thinner than I expected. The way the under chin connection is made and the face mask is held is a sort-of velcro but it is not velcro. Will it last? Don't know. Works fine so far. The pull-down brim is good. Just what is needed in a Winter hat so you can have eyes shaded from bright sun without a big brim to catch the wind. All in all I am cautiously optimistic about this hat. My 4-star rating reflects that optimism, rather than actual experience in bitter cold conditions. I recommend ordering up a size.

I wrote an earlier review just after receiving this hat in which I gave it four stars based on my first impression and optimism. I also wrote at the time that I was concerned about its thinness and also about the Velcro that is not Velcro closures. After less than a month I am returning this hat. I had wanted to like it, but this Velcro that is not Velcro is not working out. The straps on the ear flaps connect together under the chin using this non-Velcro to grasp the material of the other ear flap. It was fine at first, but had to be positioned just-so since there was not more than minimal overlap of the flaps under my chin. That was OK, but it resulted in the same small area being used repeatedly as the grasp area for the non-Velcro. Now, in less than a month, that small grasp-area has been exhausted of its ability to be connected to the non-Velcro material of the other flap. It would have taken longer for this exhaustion-failure to happen if a larger area were available for the connection, but however large the connection area it certainly will fail much sooner than could be considered a reasonable life of the hat. To be clear, it is the material of the hat itself which after a number of connect-disconnect cycles loses the capacity to attach to the non-Velcro. If the hat was constructed of a different material the non-Velcro might work much longer and be acceptable. I do not know about that. But in this use, with this hat material, the combination of hat material and non-Velcro failed to provide a dependably secure connection in less than a month. Either the manufacturer did not bother to test this non-Velcro product together with the hat material adequately before deciding to use it, or the manufacturer figures that a few months product life is good enough. Either way I will not be buying Outdoor Research goods again in the future. This is just not acceptable from a company claiming to provide quality goods. On the positive side, the thinness of the hat which had concerned me has not been a problem. It is very warm and comfortable down below 20°F. But that closure problem is a deal-breaker.
