I read a lot of reviews on a lot of different fleece hats before I finally settled on this one. But I won't lie: the fact that this hat costs three times as much as most of the discount store hats I've bought for years made me hesitant to pull the trigger on this purchase. But after I got over the sticker shock... I pressed the button and the hat was on the way.

Now that I've had the hat for over a month... I've really come to appreciate it. For everyday use in the 10° - 40° F temperatures we've experienced here... it's kept my head warm and dry in wind, rain and snow. In addition... I've worn it on a couple of long hikes through fairly rugged terrain that resulted in ample perspiration. But despite the moisture... the hat remained warm. When I removed the hat to cool off for a few minutes the moisture got pretty cold... but after a minute or so on my head... it was back to keeping me warm again.

The fabric itself truly is dense enough to keep out most wind... and soft enough that my daughter swears it's made of "baby hide." This is the warmest, softest winter hat I've ever owned and I truly missed it the day I had to go without it while it was in the laundry. I'm tempted to buy another one just to avoid encountering that scenario again. I'm not sure what part of the turtle one shaves fur from... but keep it up!

I bought my first one (in white) on a ski trip about 10 years ago. Once I got to college I knew I wanted another one in black for walking back and forth to campus. Every year I buy a new one because I inevitably leave it on a bus, or under a desk... So here I am buying my... 5th turtle fur hat. It's so warm and I like that it goes with everything. OK, so it's not "stylish" but it's also not garish and out there with crazy knit patterns and pom-poms. I still haven't found a hat that will keep my head this warm. Love it.

Finding winter hats is difficult for me due to two major issues-- (1) I have a huge head and (2) I am allergic to wool. Therefore, when I find a hat that FITS me and keeps me warm without having a bit of wool in it, I am thrilled! Turtle Fur hats both fit my head and are wool-free, so I am happy, happy, happy!

I purchased this hat for use when out running in cold weather. I wanted a hat that would keep my ears and head warm, but which would also be lightweight enough that I didn't notice it while running. Turtle Fur hats keep me warm and are lightweight, so (again!), I am happy, happy, happy!

I didn't expect to find another positive attribute of the Turtle Fur hat, but unexpectedly discovered it while out shoveling snow while it was still falling. The third positive attribute of this hat is that it repels water. Hurray! That means this hat will keep me even warmer than I originally expected because it won't allow my head to get soaked! Hurray!

If you are looking for a hat that fits the following criteria, you will be **thrilled** with Turtle Fur hats:

1) Keeps you warm
2) Keeps you dry (the hat repels water!)
3) Is wool-free
4) Fits big heads
5) Is lightweight
6) Comes in FUN colors as well as more conservative colors

I bought this hat for running in the cold weather and now find myself wearing it not only running but for any activity. Material is super soft, super warm, and stays on your head. You can fold it up as needed to fit your head. I'm buying a 2nd one for my Dad for Christmas! Highly recommend.

It's great. It was 10 bucks for this (admittedly uglier) color, and the material is high quality fleece. It's very warm.

I like this hat but the fleece is different than some of the other Turtle Fur products I've bought. Its like they use a whole range of fleece fabrics - but I (the buyer) can't distinguish from the product description. Sometimes the fleece stretches too much, which is unfortunate in the middle of a 3 week hiking trip when I can't throw it in the wash to re tighten it.

Wish they would differentiate their fleece so I can tell which product I'm buying in advance. Also why are some labelled adult and some are unsized totally?

Turtle Fur - The Hat - is the hat. Just the right amount of material, or length, to cuff-up over the ears. Good material, the fur, handles water and snow well. I have a green one and an orange one. The new orange one is a little tight, but the older green one has molded to fit my head just right. Lots of colors to select from. For a winter cuff hat, this is the one to get.

Light weight, soft, warm. Hiking in light rain, it isn't advertised as water resistant, but the outer surface gets wet, while the inner stays dry and warm. If it does get soaked, squeeze the water out, put it back on, and your body heat dries it out pretty fast.

I bought this to match the neckwarmer in ballerina, and the pair is great for skiing / winter wear.

I probably won't end up wearing the hat on it's own too often because I prefer the knit cap look, but this is still a very nice, warm hat that looks great with the matching neckwarmer for a sportier look.
