Although this beanie is at the bottom of the Mountain Hardwear price range, it is an great buy. The Polartec fleece is very warm down to about 30-35 degrees and is extremely lightweight and soft. It is perfect for stuffing in your back pocket on cool/somewhat cold days. It fits well, but in windy conditions gusts can sneak up under the edges although the fabric does cut a bit of the wind. However, it is not designed to be windproof, and for that I would recommend a MH windstopper beanie or something similar. For the price, and for fulfilling its duty, i'd give it a solid 4.5-5 stars. Yes there are nicer, but they cost more. Overall, the Mountain Hardwear Micro Dome is a solid piece of gear for the money. I've already taken it on one excursion and plan on several more.
