I actually purchased this because it was the more affordable skull cap I could find compared to the likes of Arcteryx and Patagonia and such. I have used it for general dome insulation and also ran a few chilly trail runs and 1 race in this hat and it has provided ideal insulation for running in cold weather, well cold for New Mexico. It is definitely a skull cap and you don't really get full coverage over the ears, so be aware if you're looking for a full on winter hat. Cheers.

This is a great handheld bottle for trail running. The shape allows for a very effortless grip (or no grip) which is nice when all I want to do is focus on the miles ahead and the next quad burning ascent. I've incorporated this bottle into my short-mid distance runs, 20 oz. of water or electrolyte drink in cool weather running lasting up to 2 hours is ideal for me, so this bottle fits the bill perfectly. My only beef is that the stretch pockets aren't shaped very well for the average gel packet dimensions, fitting more than 1 gel is doable but not ideal. Honestly, for me, I find this handheld to be superior to the other brands I've seen offered, Nathan, Ultimate Direction etc., their bottles are pretty standard, they do the job but the ergonomical shape of TNF bottle makes it that much easier to hydrate and focus on your run/race. Cheers.
