In theory this is a nice hat. It's made of soft warm fleece and has windstopper technology. However, as others have noted, the hat doesn't fit very well. I ordered a large which has a 59 cm circumference for my head which measures 58 cm in circumference. The hat barely covers my earlobes and felt loose so I returned it. I then went to REI and tried on a medium which measures 57 cm in circumference. Although the medium fit tighter in terms of girth, it was too small vertically and didn't cover the bottom half inch of my ears! Instead, I went with a medium Mountain Hardwear Dome Perignon Beanie which is really warm and fits well.

I ordered this hat to keep my (bald) head warm during the cooler months. While it does serve that purpose, I paid the extra money for the aesthetics and that money was wasted. The hat doesn't fit well at all. I don't mean that it's the wrong size - the part around my head fits fine. The dome part simply has entirely too much space and just flops around lopsidedly on my head. If you have a lot of hair that you plan on tucking into the hat, this would probably work well, but if you don't, this hat is going to sit crookedly on your head as well.
Additionally, although the colors look nice in the photo (I got the blue top/black bottom), they aren't nearly as bright in the actual product and it actually looks rather drab.
In short, I'd recommend you try another hat and give this one a pass.

I should have listened to the other reviewers who said the hat doesn't come down over the ears. They were right. I wore the hat a few times and then just went back to my old hat.

Got it in the mail quickly which was great. The cap feels great on your head and really does wonders in blocking out the wind and the cold. Only complaints I have are the sizes run a bit small. My head size is 7 1/4 so I thought a large for this would be great. Guess again. A large barely comes down to the bottom of my ears and allows wind-flow through my lower head. Also I was very surprised at the amount of noise that this hat muffles. I have to take it off or lift it up to hear people speak because it quiets sound so much.

I've got really nice hair and a large head so I rarley wear hats. However, I had plans to attend a Chicago Bears game, Winter Classic NCAA hockey at Soldier field in February ( temps in the teens and winds off Lake Michigan ) and ice fishing in the beautiful but fridged dairy state. OK, bad move to purchase a hat w/o trying it on was my first concern but this hat fits perfect, insulates very well without overheating you indoors or milder weather.
Love the hat, looks great- wear it all the time. Order two of them!

Got this beanie several months ago to face the cold winters in Chicago and I could not be happier. It keeps my head very warm,even in the negative temps, and sheds snow quite well. It is also a perfect fit (large) and blocks the wind better than any other cap I own. The pocket in back is pretty nifty but i don't think I've ever actually used it. Overall, a very good cover that does exactly what it says it will.

i bought this to replace a mountain hardware dome perignon. the dome covered my ears all the way which was good , sometimes. the problem was that the windstopper fleece is apparently also partially soundproof. The outdoor research hat covers about 80% of of my ears, which lets me hear at least twice as good as the dome. All in all I like the hat, the zipper on the back seems unnecessary but my ears haven't gotten cold with this hat on yet and its been fairly cold in Ohio this December. The dome would still be better for riding my bike though.

So it gets cold in afghanistan and this hat matches the multicam uniform so I bought it because I like other OR products. I am 6' and 190lbs and the large fits well and covers my ears. It has a little hidden zipper pocket in the back of the hat that I have no idea what it's for. I'm buying one in black for civilian use as well.
If you would like to know something specific about this item just ask and I'll try to respond within a day or so.

Nice hat well made, size ordered (using size chart) fitted head perfectly, but unfortunately the hat does not come down far enough and leaves the bottom of my earlobes uncovered, a bit of failure given the name of the product......bought for winter climbing in low temps. Shame good kit spoiled by a small oversight.

Been wearing this hat for a little over a week now. It fits me perfectly, it's quite comfortable and has kept my head quite warm. If there is any drawback to this hat, when pulled down completely over your ears it does dampen sound quite a bit.
