Nice hat, not the most fashionable but hey, that's not why I bought it - it serves its purpose of keeping my ears from getting cold and achy. The only downside is my metal framed eyeglasses... the zipper on this hat, whether the ear flap is attached or unattached, rubs against the sides of my glasses. And since it's right by my ears, I hear this grating noise with every movement and I worry that the zipper will scratch the eyeglasses frame. I've given up on wearing glasses with this hat though that means I can't see the ground all that well, so I'm limited to paved paths and hope to heck I don't need to see any distance up the path either. The hat's zipper isn't ideal for me, I'll likely go back to combining a regular ball cap with a headband to cover my ears.

Comfortable, extra long brim, fits well, waterproof, fold-down ear flaps are welcome on windy or extra cold days. Use it all the time in winter for skiing, snowshoeing, and hiking.
