The only disappointment for me was that the tassels for tying up the hat's ears started to fray almost immediately. I tied knots at the ends of the tassels to prevent them from completely falling apart, but it would have been great if they had been able to stay together on their own.
The hat doesn't fully cover the ears if the flaps are folded up. Also, the hat is heavy and made of good quality artificial fur. The hat stretches an inch after wearing for a week or so. If they sell this hat in an American mall, it could easily sell for $50+. The quality is way better than the ones you get at Walmart or Walgreens.
I love bicycling in 10 deg F or below, and that is when I wear this hat; I can feel my head sweating in the cold. This hat is way better than my warm beanie cap.
Craftsmanship? 100% Awesome sauce. It's built like a friggin tank. Materials? It's soft all over and the lining on the interior is smooth and comfortable. Functionality? The thing is definitely designed for cold weather days. Kept my noggin nice and toasty in 42 degree weather while cruising in a topless, doorless Jeep. (Yes, I do that. It's a Jeep thing. LoL)
All in all, a great hat....but...the sizing wasn't perfect. If you wear a 7 5/8's or up, you may want to search for the 3X version of this hat. The 2X is just shy of a 7 3/4's size hat and, technically, it's a 2X hat, but it was definitely very snug. I've slowly stretched the item out to about a 7 7/8's which is what I normally wear. Stretching was done by simply tugging at the thing little by little while wearing it. As previously stated, this hat is built very well so it doesn't stretch easily, but you can get a little room out of her if you're persistent.
Now, I know a few of you will wonder why I didn't just order the 3X to begin with. Well, firstly, it wasn't available on the drop down menu of this particular seller, with the largest available as 2X only. Secondly, by the time I discovered a 3X option, I had already began stretching the hat which I assume would make trying to return the thing a bit of a headache. Anywho, good hat, fast delivery, buy with confidence if this is the size you need, and enjoy watching Hunt for Red October, Rocky IV, and/or Red Heat in absolute style and comfort.
