Rated 5 out of 5 by AKMJ 4.5 Years and Still Going
I bought this hat in oatmeal in mid-winter 2009. Been my go-to hat since then. Constant wear from October to April from 2009-2014. Will wear it through the winter of 2015.
Starting to thin from heavy wear and washing, but still excellent.
It may start a bit small, the ear band not reaching your ears, but the hat will mold to your head.
Bought one in charcoal in 2011, but I like the oatmeal too much to ever wear it.
Definitely a fantastic hat and can take anything Alaska winter throws at it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gplayer01 Now THIS is a Winter Hat
I waited 6 months for this wool hat to arrive. Must be popular because it was back-ordered for so long. Although it's now summer, I was thrilled to receive it. I bought the grey/charcoal hat. I was blown away by the thickness and weight of the wool hat. Now I can't give a winter review, but I CAN say that I love the tight weave, the inner lining and the fact that this can fully cover your ears. I really can't wait to try this when winter rolls around. ;-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by NavyGuy84 comfortable, fits great
I had been looking for a winter hat since my old ones were no longer serviceable. Found the hat online and although I would have preferred a different color, ordered the tan one. When it arrived, I realized that I could wear the color with any of my jackets. I love the hat; it fits perfectly, is warm, wears and washes well. Ordered a second one as a backup.

Very comfortable, warm, tight weave, sheds water, soft sewn-in headband, clear cleaning instructions. A real winner!

Rated 3 out of 5 by JSDC Great hat with one exception
This is a super warm hat and well made, like all Bean products. The reason I give it 3/5 stars is that the product was not as described on the website. It said that it had a soft fleece lining, which is kind of true. It has a soft fleece ear band appx. 2.5 inches wide, which covers your ears if you wear the hat rolled as show in photo. If you pull it down further over your head, both your ears and face will be touching rag wool. It is soft, as far as rag wool goes, but it is still a little itchy and should be completely lined with fleece. I am keeping it, but I would be much happier with a full lining.

although listed for men, I liked the look and reviews. It is not a snug fit for me but does come down the back of my neck and as far down my face as I choose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lexington87654 Super warm, well-fitting, comfortable
My review title says it all. A terrific, cosy, large-enough-to-keep your-ears-warm hat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lottiejo Fvorite "go to" hat. warm, great fit!
Bought this in charcoal for my husband's birthday. He has one in Oatmeal which he has been wearing for a few years. He does a lot of outside work around the home and this is by far his favorite
"go to" hat . The fleece lining is a BIG plus. It is WARM, COMFORTABLE and of the highest quality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by skitoday rag wool hat
this is a great hat but I wanted one that was fully lined, not just around the base of the hat around the ear area.
