Great for running and hiking

    I got this hat for running and hiking, which incidentally are the only things that I wear hats for. I like that is has a wool blend.

    The medium fits me great (7 1/4 head size) and it fits my wife too. Thats why flex fit rocks.

    It has not yet developed a sweat ring (which is what I hate about cotton hats) but it is still pretty chilly out so time will tell.

    I recommend it; its a great way to represent the backcountry website/lifestyle that it stands for.

    Pretty good

      I was looking for a wool cap, and this one suffices. I like that it comes in sizes (I need a small or women's size). What I don't like so much: no adjustment for size, no "hole" for my pony tail, not all wool (in fact, mostly not wool). Overall, a good buy especially on sale.


        Undoubtedly the most stylish lid in my collection. I ordered a L/XL, but I am an in-betweener when it comes to Flexfit. Sure it might be a bit large, but guaranteed to make you a stylish dad when picking up your kids at school. One dad asked if I was in a gang, which made me realize that I was cooler than him.

        Great Hat, marginal color

          Love the fit and brim on the Goat Wool Flexfit. I use it mainly for running and hiking and it is very comfortable. It wicks more than most of my other hats, but dries out easily. The only bad thing is the color, the light blue came from someone without much concern for those whose manhood is occasionally threatened.

          Good Fit

            I have a small head (stop snickering) and the small/medium actually fits. I have a hard time finding a good shaped hat that doesn't look and feel to large, and you nailed it with this one. I love the light blue as well. Great deal and great hat.

            great looking hat! (navy blue)

              I don't have the biggest dome on the block (not sure my hat size, I've been wearing flex-fit so long now), but the L-XL fits comfortably without resting on my ears.

              I snagged the Navy Blue (before it sold out apparently) and it looks really great. I dig the simplicity of the design and the hat is the quality you'd expect from Backcountry.

              If you get this hat, you will not be sad about it.

              Good news, bad news

                Frist, I couldn't be more pleased with the style, appearance and fit of the hat. It's great inthose respects as was the very fast shipping. However, to claim this is a wool hat as the webstie does, is stretching things a bit, IMO. The label in the hat states it is actually made of 85% accrylic, 2% spandex and 15% wool. Not exactly a wool hat by my definition. Still, I bought it primarily for x-country skiing in relatively warm temps and I think it will still work fine for that being made of those materials. And I like everything else about it so I reckon I'll be keeping it. Still?

                Not quite what was promised

                  I've had my eye on this hat for some time so when one in my size came up, I immediately ordered it. Good news, bad news. I like the style, the fit and the looks and the incredibley good service. However, one of the reasons I wanted this particular hat was it was made of wool(see description). When it arrived and I checked the label, low and behold, its construction was stated as 15% wool, 83% accrylic and 2% spandex. That's not exactly what I would call a wool hat. I am a little disappointed in about that. However, that said, I like everything else about it and I really don't want to quibble, although I guess I am. I wanted wool to ski in on relatively warm days when I needed something light but water resistant. I think the combination of materials in the hat should do it, maybe even better that pure wool. Still? What say you?

                  Tight on a big melon

                    After reading reviews that the hat was loose - even on guys with big heads - I was encouraged to buy the hat. I wear a 7 1/2 - 7 5/8 fitted baseball hat and I ordered the L/XL hat. After wearing this hat for about 90 minutes, not only was it uncomfortable, the stiched words from the inner elastic band was actually READABLE on my forehead when I took the hat off!

                    The hat is very high quality and good looking, but if you've got a big melon, the L/XL is more like an L...

                    Good hat

                      Nice simple hat - solid color, with the BC goat on the front that everyone asks about. I'm just between the medium and large so I bought the large. Not too loose, fits well. I knew it wasn't adjustable to begin with, so no surprise there.
                      Can't complain about anything, this hat met every expectation. Not too flashy, good looks, clean design.

                      Will backcountry sell the brown style cap? i only see the carolina blue... the light blue just isn't my style. I really dig the look of the brown one though. My dome uses a size L/XL

                      Will the small/medium size be available again any time in the foreseeable future - like before next winter. Love to order it.
