Rated 5 out of 5 by bagsmith Great hat
Got the first one last year and wore it constantly on long walks. The ear flaps block the wind nicely. It's warm and stays on. The brim shields eyes from bright sun.
Bought another one this year because last year's hat disappeared temporarily. It's been found again and now I have a second hat just in case.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLBeanfaninMN Warm & fun hat
I wasn't sure how flattering this hat would be on a female, but decided to give it a chance. I am pleased with the look, both with the ear flaps up or down. It also goes well with my plaid wool Maine Guide Parka. I feel like a "true Minnesotan" when I wear this...and that is not a bad thing. I usually wear hat size 7 1/8" and the medium fits me well. I believe it will serve me well during my winter outdoor hikes this year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jeanniebug Red or Grey are just cute warm and styling .
I wanted a cute warm little hat for when I'm walking the dog. And this is the styling little number I was looking for . I didn't find anything this perfect at the mall and them I checked out L.L.Bean and there it was . And a big bonus I look pretty cute with my new hat...

A very nice looking and well- made wool hat for either men or women. I ordered the red and it is very close to the color pictured on the web site. It is a "real" red -- not orange tinged.
I loved the color but not the way it looked on either my husband or myself. It was too flat for both of us. The very front of the brim is too stiff to move, so you can only adjust the sides and rear.
It runs big. I ordered an extra large and it was too big for both my husband and me. Most hats are usually too small for us.
A great hat if you have the right head for it.

This wool hat is great and it should not be labeled "Men's Hat." I am a woman and bought the hat for x-c skiing. It fits well and the brim keeps the sun out of my eyes. The ear flat is good on windy days and also helps keep my neck warm. I'm keeping my traditional beanie-style hats for cloudy days.

Well, three of us bought this hat because we were in West Lebanon, NH and the temperature was dropping (-15) and the hats we brought with us did do the job. It is also hard, especially me, to find a hat that is comfortable, fits well, looks OK (I'm not a hat person) and most important warm. As a matter of fact we all love our hat(s). Hat's color is great, well constructed, nice details, like the style and the tucked away ear protection does not get in the way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Beadsie Great choice for warm head
The men's wool Jones style hat was a choice for me, a woman in her 70s, to keep my head warm in the cold weather. I buy men's large size hats to fit my head, so ladies, if you need a nice warm hat that's great for a light drizzle and cold winds, give this hat a try--it looks great with chin-length hair and is very well made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jamo449 Warm and comfortable
While shopping at Beans Mothership on a cold snowy day, the horse drawn wagon just went by I felt a chill on my head and needed a warm hat. I went in the store and found the most comfortable warm hat I ever had. It fit so nice and looked real good too,I bought it put it on and that was that. I then went outside my wife said you look cute, we went arm and arm and smiled, went for a ride on that horse drawn wagon. My head was warm and so was my heart, was like being in a Beans commercial with my nice warm hat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RidersDad Super functional
Really nicely made - nice stiff brim which holds it's shape, warm, comfy - ear flaps are a little thin but will help. Nice to have something that actually feels like wool - red color is warm, not bright. As much as I hate winter, I look forward to wearing this hat on many days. I measured my noggin, hat seems a tad on the small side, but, will probably stretch a bit with use.

Larger and floppier than I expected, and I'm a guy who wears a large size.
