Most helpful critical review

Oddly, it is just slightly too big for me so I have to adjust it often. The other Carhartt cap I bought is way too small, but also "one size." I don't get it, Carhartt. Clearly you need to size your hats, hire a real haberdasher to help design these things.
It is quite warm around the sides where that quilted rim is but thinner on top, so wearing it out in freezing temperatures I get really hot around the sides of my head but the top of my head not so much. If I were a bald person the top of my head would probably still be cold.
The stylized quilting around the sides has a loose outer layer and it is not very durable. After just one season of wearing this hat about three days a week for only a handful of hours each day, and never in any circumstance where the hat is being physically damaged by anything, there are holes and fraying.
It worked for me, even if it isn't durable and it is annoyingly big, but I wouldn't buy another. So far Carhartt has really let me down with hats, I won't be buying another from them unless they either nail size or durability.
