Fit: My head is about 23" or 58cm (7 1/4 in US sizes) and I don't have a lot of hair. I ordered a L/XL, and I like the fit: snug, but not too tight. I can pull it down over the bottom of my ears, but just barely -- on someone with a lot of hair or a larger head, the L/XL wouldn't cover the ears and would fit more like a beanie than a watch cap. I'm not using it under a helmet, but the thin wicking material seems like it would be good for that use. There are four vertical seams in a cross pattern that intersect at the crown, but they stop 3 inches away from the brim. That's good for those people who don't want a red line running down the center of their forehead after taking a hat off.
Protection: The thin material it's made of is warm relative to the weight, but it's so lightweight that that's not saying much. It might not be too far off the warmth of a very light 100 weight fleece cap, but it's nowhere near the warmth of a traditional wool or acrylic knit watch cap. It has a fairly dense weave that's OK at blocking wind, but not great. The material dries quickly.
Material and construction: Made in China. According to the tag it's 63% nylon, 23% polyester, 14% spandex. The stitching and overall construction seem very solid.
The fabric is very thin but it will still keep you warm. I use it for cycling and it barely makes a difference under my helmet.

Works well as an additional helmet liner when I wear a half helmet, comfortable placement over ear without bunching or moving around. All in all, a good value.Published 2 months ago by Simon Eng
