I've used headbands previously that are designed to cover the ears and always have trouble with them riding up and exposing my ears to the cold and having to regularly pull it back down during the ride. This helmet liner didn't have that problem. In fact the only negative thing I can say about it is it left an indentation line on my forehead for an hour after the ride which probably looked a little funny as I walked around the
(1) Lightweight: the last thing anyone wants is a heavy headpiece which weighs them down or is uncomfortable, this is light and breathable, while still feeling warm
(2) Covers the ears: I've tried other hats which don't completely cover my ears, this, fortunately, covers mine perfectly
(3) Doesn't move around unnecessarily: fits perfectly, not too loose or too tight, which means it protects and holds well
(4) Easy to wash: as a sweaty long-distance runner, I need to throw this in the wash after each use and I can do so without worrying about shrinkage or any weird issues which is wonderful
Overall, I really enjoy wearing this beanie. On to the next marathon!

**UPDATE** The good folks of RockBros read that I had a bad experience with the 1st one so they offered to replace it. I must say that the second one is WAY better in quality. Not stitch issues and it fits my big head! Thank you guys!
I had an issue of sweat absorbing into my helmet pads and when fully saturated, the sweat would slip into my eyes. With the cap, the sweat is absorbed into the brim of the cap and evaporates from the headwind. Before, I had sweat dripping into my eyes within 2 miles of my ride. I just completed a 60 mile ride with no issues of sweat anymore! Works great under both my MTB helmet and road helmet!

*** The Large ***
Didn't fit over my bald head - it was like the hat just sat on top of my head, rather than wrapping around it and covering it.
*** The Extra Large ***
Fit over my head *and* ears *and* could be pulled down over my eyebrows. Huh!? That is an enormous difference in measurement from one product size to the next.
Yeah, yeah - no one fitted hat fits everyone, we all have different heads, etc. - I understand all that. But think about it: if there's no Outdoor Research hat

Perfect cap for HOT days it really lets the air in but will go back to wearing my cotton
Fit: My forehead measures ~23" and it fits fine. If I want to pull it over my ears, it will cover close to half my ears. Otherwise I can leave it above the ears just fine.
Sweat: I live in California, and for my 90 min rides in 65-85 degree weather, it seems to soak the sweat ok, precluding the need for a sweat band. Also, the material is sheer, so I can feel the wind when I ride fast enough
Durability: I have only used this a dozen times, but have not experienced the durability issues noted by others. I generally hand wash, sometimes throw it in the washer. However, I always hang dry it, never in the dryer.
Sun protection: This is the primary reason for the purchase, but at the same

With silicone rubber it stays on my head comfortably and securely.
Some other skull cap I have with spandex can be really tight and a bit uncomfortable on my head.
Way over-priced for such a small piece of fabric.
It's easily frayed with no contact with sharp objects. The only contact is my fingers with very short nails.
I have been wearing Pearl Izumi for a long time and have realized its qualities have been going down.
Since a while back, I started to get Castelli whenever I need something new.
Castelli may be (and may be not when on sale) a bit more expensive but its fabric and quality are way better.

skull caps are all good. Recently, even my fiance got on the band-wagon and started buying their stuff.
Even though I was offered free gear for my review, I wouldn't keep buying Tesla gear if it couldn't hold up and keep me happy. Two years after my first purchases, they are still wearing well and going strong. Buy their stuff. Chances are you will be satisfied.
Pros: Inexpensive, warm (use it mainly for temps between 20-40F), and does a good job of wicking the moisture away from my head.
Cons: A little short depending on the size of your head, but doesn't quite cover all of my ear; and when drying mine after a run, I hung on a plastic clip hanger and it looks like it mildewed under where the clip was... wouldn't have been noticeable but for it being a white hat.

This cap is super comfortable, fits snug, and wicks up all the sweat. And there's a lot of sweat. Next I plan to use this under my bike helmet. Compared to the punishment it's handled, I'm pretty confident it's up to the task.

In case it matters, they're synthetic, rather than the cotton you get with most traditional cycling caps. They also sit slightly lower around my head than all the other traditional cycling caps I've owned. The plastic visor is flippable--visor up or visor down--like all good cycling caps.
Would buy again.

My son wears it under his bicycle helmet; very aerodynamic. Recommended!
It was a little big for my medium sized head, so I had to position it carefully so not to fall down over my eyes. Ideally it would be sized a little smaller and then have a bit more stretch to accommodate different head sizes (or just make a smaller version of the same model).

I can't say at what temps these would stop being effective but I would generally switch over to a balaclava in the mid upper 20's
So as a rule of thumb anything above freezing
