Useful but not perfect

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Ordered a medium based on the sizing charts and could barely get it on my head. Returned it for an L, which is much better. This is a good piece for cold weather, but if it gets really frigid/windy, I found it necessary to wear a light ear band underneath it, and the combo was perfect. Visor is helpful as is Gore-tex outside fabric.

Good tip on the ear band if it is very cold a baklava sold with artic weight poly underwear underneath will even work better and cover the neck and face preventing frostbite . I like to have a mouth opening in mine to let the moisture out instead of having it freeze on the outside of the fabric in sub zero temps . I ordered one of these as I liked the fact the ear flaps could be set out of the way and I like to go where minimalist items are a necessity if one wants comfort .
