This is the most effective cold-weather hat I have ever worn. The shape covers my ears completely, and the hat does not ride up, regardless of how much I move my head. The earband is extra thick and blocks all of the wind and cold. Even when the top of the hat is covered with snow, the interior remains dry. Great job on this one, EMS.
A great replacement for the older "windstopper" hats. This one has shaped sides that cover all of your ears including the usually exposed earlobes. Very warm and comfortable. It does muffle your hearing just a but but that is a fair trade off for warmth in -30 wind chils !!
