Probably a good fit for some, but not my own personal favori

Nice little weatherproof cap. Kind of nerdy, and not the best for for me, but it's weatherproofing matches warmer weather winter days on the trail.

Great touring cap

I mainly use this for skinning up hills and cross country outings. It's fantastic in its light enough that I don't sweat but keeps the head warm and ears toasty. My only complaint is that the only way to flip up the ears is to roll the back of the head up which is a little uncomfortable.

Good, but has limits

Use is for winter hiking and cross country skiing. Fit is ok, and I find the hat sits low on my head and obscures vision. Also hard to use with headphones.

Very specific uses

Somewhat unique (odd?), highly specific item best for active use in cold dry weather. Ear flaps don't really lay tight around the ears and tucking them up results in an akward looking and wearing cap. This cap is best used with flaps down under a hooded jacket where it'll certainly be warmer and more breathable than a standard cap.

Vigor cap

I've got to say this is a fantastic hat. I've just got one and it's brilliant! I wouldn't say I have an enormous head but it fits great. Used on 2 mountain forays in cold sunny conditions with a good degree of wind thrown in and it performed brilliantly. With the ear flaps tucked up it is like a standard ball cap, but with them down they protectd my ears fine. Warm enough but also breathable enough not to overheat me. I've also used it at work on the lakeshore in changeable conditions all day with total comfort. Ace bit of kit, please don't discontinue.

Doesn't cover my ears like my old cap from OR

Doesn't cover my ears or weather proof and not easily adjusted for fit.

To small as L/Xl

To tight on my head. Like old model with flaps that you can tuck in your cap

Ear flaps are weird

As a woman with an average size head, this hat is too big. Even thought the crown of this hat is not rigid, it's still too tall. When I tug it down, it comes to low over my eyes and the band comes over my ears. The ear flaps are not what I expected. The flaps are not fleece or particularly soft. They are semi-rigid and don't fit very snug against my ears. The flaps didn't seem like they would fold up very smoothly. I was surprised the flaps didn't have any fleece to them, since this hat is made for colder temperatures. I've been on the hunt for a well fitting winter cap with ear flaps and continue to strike out. Maybe this style just isn't for me.
