Just received my Mountain Hardwear Dome Perignon beanie, and wanted to comment on its fit.

I don't have a particularly large head; I wear 7 1/4 hat size. I originally bought a one size fits all North Face beanie, but it was way too small. I exchanged it for this, because it had great reviews, and you could choose a size.

I went with large, which fits very well. It's not constrictive, yet seems to stay in place if I'm moving around. The fleece ear liner covers my ears and doesn't ride up, and is very soft.

The only negative is the "cone head" affect that the hat has. Not sure why it's made that way, but the other reviewers were correct.

Also, the wind stopper material is somewhat crinkly sounding when on your head, and does muffle sound a little bit, but it's no big deal. I bet the crinkly sound will go away as it wears in.

I don't have a particularly large head. I wear hat size 7 1/4, but this beanie was too small for me. It's too tight on my head, and barely covers my the bottom of my ears.

If it fit, I'd love it. The fleece ear lining seemed nice.

Very disappointed that North Face only has a "one size fits all".

I've gotta say - I don't understand why reviewers knock this item for not being windproof or waterproof. It never claims to be either.

It IS warm and comfortable. It has a square cut, which can be useful for layering. On dry days, I've used it as an outer layer in 0 degree temps, and been pretty happy.

I'm 6-2 185, wear a 17 size collar with 35 inch sleeves, and found the XL to be a good fit. It's slightly baggy around the waist if you just have a t-shirt or polo underneath, but fits really well over a sweater.

One thing I particularly like is the strength of the waist drawstring. The cord is pretty strong, and you can cinch it down tight, and the clasps will hold nicely.

And FYI, the hand pockets are not fleece lined, unlike the women's version.

I bought this bag (large size) to toss in the back of the car for weekend trips, or to use as a carry-on for flights.

When it arrived, it displayed the quality you'd expect from North Face for a durable bag: Thick Material, Beefy Stitching, Large Zippers. Inside, there is a zippered mesh pouch on the back of the lid, which has a plastic clip in it (perfect for keys).

I've taken it on a few flights as my carry-on, and it fits in the overhead bins pretty well. If it's more than 3/4 full, there could be some issues.

Large size was perfect for me: you can stash a pair of shoes, a couple changes of clothes and maybe a sweatshirt with room to spare.
