Rated 5 out of 5 by BillOfMontana As goofy looking hats go, this one goes first
But hey, warmth and comfort come first, and this delivers. I'm not sure what the flip up ear flaps are suppose to be there for, but the fur and chin strap dont need a manual.
Want to see the Photo? Yeah, right...

After only a few uses one of the lugs on the closure clasp broke off, making the closure strap useless. Cheap plastic part. The hat is only as good as it's weakest part. For what these cost a sturdier part should be used.

Rated 4 out of 5 by horsesandcats Buckle needs improvement
The good things- super super cute, very very warm, perfect fit.
The bad thing- poor quality buckle. It feels and looks cheap and it is hard to clip. Fortunately mine has not broken like the one the gal in NYC has. Please improve the buckle- don't cheap out on something so basic.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Blighty Great warm hat with one flaw!
My daughter received this hat for Christmas and has used it constantly as she lives in NYC. Unfortunately the buckle is of poor quality as it has broken already.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JosieBug Wonderful Hat and even better Customer Service!!
I purchased the Mad Bomber hat in the Wine/Purple color back in December and this has to be the best hat ever! It is so warm in frigid weather and we are on our third arctic clipper so it was definately tested out! But this hat is also okay to wear even when the temps are in the 40's and I was never overheated. I ordered the small and it is a bit roomy, I can even wear this hat comfortably over a pony tail.
The only unfortunate thing is that my clasp did end up breaking. But the customer service here at L.L.Bean is wonderful! They are sending me a new hat and since the color I ordered is no longer available if I dont like the new one I can send it back with the return label and they will reimburse me to fix my purple one. How great is that!! I would recommend any L.L.Bean products to anyone, not just this hat. LOVE this company!!!

This hat is toasty warm and just what I wanted. People in the city look at me funny, but I laugh at them because my head's warm and theirs isn't. :-)

Comfortable and warm at extremely low temperatures. Chin strap buckle is quick and convenient for holding the hat on when windy or the ear flaps up when conditions warm. Wool outer is extremely quiet making it great for hunting in the cold.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BenL Best Winter Hat Yet
I've had a few trapper-style hats before, but this one is by far the best. It is very insulated and super warm. The fur trim lining is really soft and feels good against the cheek bones. The hat isn't itchy either. I just tested this hat out after getting as a gift (shoveling snow, running errands, taking the dog out) over a stretch of days where the temps were in the single digits and below zero in northern Michigan, but my head wasn't cold at all. The pattern goes great with my grey winter coat too. I ordered a Large because I wear a 7 3/8 size fitted hat, and it fits perfectly!
