i'm a dude with long hair and unless my hair is in top knot, its probably covered up with a trucker hat. but, sometimes hats get in the way (forget to turn the bill backwards and it gets knocked off during clean and jerks ..and certainly a pain during handstand pushups etc) but with this stretchy material you can "unravel" it from the straight folded-over standard headband into a skullcap-style headband. super stoked, just wish there were more dark colors.... baby blue and pink are just not quite my style. but good thing black is universal! if anyone knows of similar headbands from other companies, let me know as i would totally get this in some Buff-style prints. btw, this differs from the other buff-like headbands by not being a tube but a much more practical/versatile shape (don't get me wrong, Buffs are the scheissa). "contours" to your head would be the right word i suppose. cheers!

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

The photo is a bit misleading; the handle on this knife is in original un-worked blocks form where you'd either need to lathe it or work it down some other way to create your own unique handle. The only sheath it comes with is a foam block as well (for shipping safety or whatever) since the sheath the actual Harding knife comes in is a Viking style snug-fit that depends on the handle dimensions. At any rate, the blade is still top notch and the leather, birch and oak blocks are all glued and secured solidly. Have fun, and don't forget to get some good leather for the sheath!!

Fit: Runs large

After reading the reviews and downsizing from my usual 11 to a 9.5, it was still a bit too large. so i exchanged them for a 9.0. i'm picky and like a snug fit, though. with reasonably thick smart wool socks (basically as thick as i go, same thickness as what i wear in my ski boots) my toes just barely touch the front of the boot now. yes, yes, i know you are supposed to give your feet some space, but i also know these boots will work around my foot and stretch to my foot with a little time. plus, the sole juts out more than regular shoes and since these are work boots (for me) i'd hate to be carrying something heavy and eat shit because i'm not used to a plank attached to my foot. also, i probably won't do too much hiking in these. so a regular 11 down to a 9.0 was ideal for me. fairly simple, fairly lightweight boot. nothing fancy but a pair you can definitely wear out?depending on your style of course. oh yeah, as noted in other comments, they are NOT waterproof (the tongue is separate from the shoe until the bottom) and NOT insulated. if you DO want to wear big ass socks, then, obviously only go to like one and a half sizes smaller than your usual fit. looking forward to many years with these bad boys!
