Rated 5 out of 5 by Tibb Believe it or not I do not own one personally.
BUT my family loves them. Last season one of the sizes I needed for a gift was sold out and I am so happy they are back in stock.

The best purchase I have made this winter. It keeps you very warm when working outdoors in the winter. If the wind chills are really bad you still have to protect your face with a mask.
Good job LL Bean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ComfyK Prepare to be warm
To start with, I wish the hat was called something else, existing as it does in today's world. It would be nice to see it return next year as the "you look like a doofus in the suburbs, but I bet you're warm" hat.
That being said, I love my hat. It's actually my second one; do be careful if you have a dog who enjoys chewing fluffy things. My purple one fell off a hook. I don't like the red as much because the color is more LifeSaver red than a nice deep red, but as long as my head and neck are that warm, I can overlook that.
When I first got my first hat, I wore it when it wasn't cold enough. It's that warm. You'll want to establish your own temperature parameter. I can't wear it if it's above 30 or so unless it's at least breezy.
My one regret is that I still need to protect my face. It would be fabulous if there was a built-in face mask. I wear it for dog-walking and wear glasses. In the bitter cold of this New England winter, I put a silk scarf on first, over my nose and mouth, tucked under my glasses, so they don't steam up, then the hat goes on. I learned quickly that I need to put on the [LL Bean] snow pants first, then the [LL Bean] boots with the [LL Bean] StabilIcers attached, then the tech gloves, the [LL Bean] parka before the hat goes on, followed quickly by the ski mittens; otherwise I get too hot before I can get out the door.
So, don't buy it to look adorable, but do buy it for amazing warmth.

I returned the hat, not because it wasn't of exceptional quality. It was.
It just didn't fit. It was too small even though I ordered an extra large.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Max71 Great hat
Love this hat, it's incredibly warm and comfortable. The softest ever. Only issue is I had bought a medium, was a bit tight, so I ordered a large but it actually feels smaller than the medium, so now I'll have to return it and try an extra large, but the item keeps coming and going because it's always sold out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RonaK Great Fur, Great Quality but sizing issue
I bought my brother this hat as a gift and he loves it. Extremely warm and great quality. Beware of sizing. My brother is 28 years old and average size head. I purchased the XL which fits perfectly. It seems that all bomber hats no matter where they are purchased, all run small. Buy the next size up.

I bought this for my husband. He wore out the first one.
He loves it - best thing for cold Colorado weather, especially
when you are using a snowblower or playing with the dogs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NewCountryfan Cozy warm and great color
My Madbomber hat has kept me extra warm this season. When we moved to a house near the water on Maryland's Eastern Shore, I needed something warmer than what I had and this hat does the job perfectly! I got the poppy color which looks gorgeous with the fur trim.
