Rated 3 out of 5áby tpm3728 Sizing is off on this item
I ordered an XL for this item and it is really tight on my head.
I can use it but it is not sized correctly. My hat size is 7 3/4.
It is satisfactory for limited use and I did not want to return it.

Rated 4 out of 5áby TurkeyTrot This will do.
This hat is not quite what I expected, but I will keep it. I got the extra large and it just barely comes down over my ears - but it does cover the ears and it is certainly warm. I just wish it had been a little bigger.

Rated 4 out of 5áby TreeGirl Quality Hat
I got the black/carbon in size L/XL. The measurement around the band of the hat is 24 inches and it has a small amount of stretch to it. Measuring from one edge, over the top of the hat to the other edge is about 17.5 inches. It is a soft black color. When next to a jet black, it does look grayish, but next to a contrasting color it looks black. It blocks the wind, but in terms of warmth, I would rate it medium--I have other fleece hats that are warmer (but unfortunately don't block the wind) and others that are less warm. The fleece isn't bulky so it fits under a hood nicely.

I bought this black hat after owning the blue version for about 2 years. It has full coverage and does stop the wind. I am very happy with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Mimi333 Excellent hat, lightweight, comfy and warm
Having read the reviews written by other customers before buying, here is my reaction. I bought the blue. My head is the largest standard hat size - I'm 6' 1 1/2" tall. I find this hat wonderful to wear. It fits perfectly (obviously I got the larger size), it looks great on my head, it's very lightweight, and it's quite warming. The fabric feels very nice. I don't know what anybody else might be complaining about - this is great.

Rated 1 out of 5áby NoKaOi48 Very disappointed, again . . .
I wear a medium size cap/hat and have an 'average' size head for an adult male. This item comes in two sizes, so I ordered the Med/Large. It is made well enough but it is not in my opinion a 'hat', it is rather: a beanie! It did not even cover my ears, yet was supposed to be able to fit a larger head than mind? I guess I could have pulled, stretched, awaited it to loosen up over time but that seems unreasonable for me to 'fix' what Bean fails to deliver from the onset. I for one, have been a decades-long purchaser of LL Bean products due to their prior excellence but find the past few years, quality has gone way, way down across many items. I never or very rarely have had to return anything at all but now, at least 50% of the items I purchase I return due to poor workmanship, colors that are not even close to what the picture or descriptions read, and am a very dissatisfied customer. Bean needs to return to U.S. manufacturers and reclaim its well deserved place as a top spot to purchase items.

That hat is a little stiff at first but it breaks in. I have a small head (6 3/4) and small may be a tiny bit big but it fits. I haven't found this hat to be exceptionally warm or windproof. I'd say it is a little of both. It works well for the fall but as temperatures drop I know I will have to find a new hat. Overall, it is a decent hat. I would not recommend it to a friend because I think there are better options available.

Rated 2 out of 5áby Cabernet2 Disappointing
The "windproof" material makes this hat stiff and unappealing. It has an unnatural shape. Would prefer heavier weight fleece that is soft and comfortable.
