Rated 5 out of 5áby thebull Warm & Cozy
So far it seems the quality is there and It fits well. I haven't had any real cold weather yet to test how it performs, but based on what I have seen, it will perform well.

Rated 5 out of 5áby akmjulio19 Comfortable for WI winters
I purchased the M as my hat size is 7 1/8 which is at the upper threshold for the medium and it fits perfectly.
The rabbit fur keeps my ears and cheeks warm and blocks wind very well. The ear flaps contain a 1" plastic quick release clip on a 3" synthetic strap which clicks and releases easily under my chin or above the hat if it is not quite as cold outside.
The back of the hat does have a 2" x 2" white embroidered "Mad Bomber" logo. I don't think everyone will like it, but it doesn't bother me much.
There are two additional 3" x 2" flaps, on the outside of the earflaps, which hide earholes. You would button these upwards so the hole is not covered anymore and allows you to hear better. They line up ok if I don't strap flaps together. Once I strap the flaps they move inwards ~1" inwards. Not sure of a good way for them to remedy this, maybe they could put in a horizontal or diagonal slit.

Rated 3 out of 5 Smells funny
This hat will probably be nice and warm for the Winter, but it has an odor to it. I am going to try and hang it outside to get rid of the smell. Hopefully that will do the trick.

Rated 5 out of 5áby shelecky Hands down the best thing I have ever purchased
I purchased this hat about 3 years ago and it is hands down the best thing I have ever spent my money on. I live in a city and walk to work, and every winter I am so happy that I have this hat to pull out. I am a petite woman and got the medium to avoid totally flattening my hair- but the medium actually fits spot on. It is SO WARM and a total life saver!!! The rest of my body may get cold but my head/face/ears never are thanks to this guy!

I wanted Large size but as I s often the case with L.L. Bean, ithey were out of stock. Therefore, I got the medium size and it's really too small for me. What a nuisance.

Rated 5 out of 5áby mmade What you need...
...if you want to keep warm in frigid weather. Last year when temperature highs hovered around 15░F for weeks, this hat was my closest companion. It will keep your head toasty. The fact that it's the adorable plaid that it is a bonus. Being a petite lady, I would have loved if this came in woman's sizing and had a smaller front flap, but that is in no way a deal breaker.

Rated 4 out of 5áby JV11 Nice and warm
I usually wear an XL hat but LLB only had a med available. However, I had read reviews saying they ran both large and small - now that certainly clarifies things. Hoping for a good fit, I ordered a medium and it surprisingly fits decently and is very warm but feels a little high on the head as the main seam goes above the "equator" of my head. I decided to return it because of the somewhat odd fit and because I realized this isn't even an LL Bean made hat (there is actually a MB company that has the larger sizes at this time and for an equivalent price). Overall it kept my head warm in a short test in the backyard but I wish I had a store nearby to get the size right.
