Rated 5 out of 5 by OnlyPercale Nice Easy Care Hat
Veryc nice cap with the following qualities. Easy stretch, soft fleece inner lining, easy care. I like the comfort of trail model a little better, but it is also thicker (a little harder to stuff in pocket) and attracts dog hair.

Rated 4 out of 5 by OnlyPercale Good Hat
As with all things LLBean, excellent quality. Best to compare with the Trail Model Fleece Hat which I like a little better. This hat is slightly tighter around but has slightly more stretch. It has a soft inner lining (unlike hunter model which is shiny inside and no fleece--although surprisingly comfortable with wear). It does not seem to attract hairs (like dog hairs) which is a problem with the trail model fleece hat. Overall, the trail model fleece hat is my favorite for comfort. This one is not as comfortable but easier care (less dog hair to remove).

Rated 1 out of 5 by oldmontanan Waste of money
For years I've been searching for a snug pullover hat that would remain in place and protect my ears. Invariably every one that I've tried pulls up, keeping the top of my head warm but leaving my ears exposed to the wind chill.
What makes this pitiful offering unique in a long line of disappointments is that in addition to pulling up, it doesn't even keep the top of my head warm once it's retracted!
This item is advertised as a "one size fits all". That may be true if your hat size resembles a grapefruit.
I wear a 7 1/4" hat. When I initially put it on I could hear the seam threads snapping and I was afraid it would tear. Nonetheless I gave it a chance to adjust to me over the course of two weeks. If anything, its performance grew worse.
The hat is poorly constructed and cheaply made. It incorporates very little insulating material and doesn't begin to stop any amount of windchill.
If there were an option for "negative stars" that's where it would be.
The item is on its way back to the LL Bean reject bin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Freeportwannabee Great cap for warmth
I bought this hat particularly for kayaking in the colder temps, however, found it to be more versatile. It is easy to keep clean and to store in a pocket. Great buy!

Rated 2 out of 5 by CustomerLLB One size doesn't fit all
The negatives outweighed the positives for me:
1. This hat is only sold in one size, but it won't fit everyone. This hat was much too large for me (5ft.6in. woman). The front came down past my eyes. I tried rolling up the edge a few inches, but then there was a row of stitching that felt tight and uncomfortable around my ears.
2. The hat had a funny, plasticky smell. Maybe this would go away after washing it (I'm returning it, so I can't say).
1. Soft, comfortable, quality fabric, with quality construction.
2. Nice color, in my opinion (the green one called "Jade Citron")

Rated 4 out of 5 by shpr1 comfortable and light
I wore this for the first time on a colder day jog. The hat slipped up only a little, much better fit than anyother hat that i've worn before.
I like the light weight and it wasnt soaked with sweat after a run, like the wool caps i use to wear.
