Rated 4 out of 5 by cdg7b Good cold weather hat
Comfortable, itch free hat. Have worn this hat several times and have been really impressed so far. The hat came a little large for my average sized head (was looking for a tighter beanie style hat, not a slouch hat), soaked in water and dried for about 10 min in clothes dryer and fixed the problem. I have worn this hat in temps down to 25 F so far and was comfortable, however below 15 F I feel like a thicker more wind resistant hat would be needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by han170 Warm, comfortable and attractive
Hat is warm being wool and very comfortable with its fleece liner. I have worn it a lot this winter and been very satisfied. My wife remarked that it quite attractive. I have a large head and it fits me just fine. I wear it mainly while walking my two dogs during a very cold winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BenA Warm and appropriately designed.
Wool. A good thing. Fleece: also a good thing, a bit softer but prone to create a Vandograph generator effect on one's head. A hat with fleece around the inner perimeter but not in the top where it ruins your hair upon removal: a great thing.

Got it for the wife as a Xmas stocking stuffer. We go birding and this time of year she needs it to cover her head. She loves it.

My husband picked out a shirt and hat for me to buy him for Christmas. He loves LLBean's merchandise. Well, I ordered the hat and the shirt and realized after I had it ordered online, that I did not specify the color of hat he wanted, so I immediately called LLBean and a lovely lady assisted me and within a couple of minutes she changed the hat to the right color! I was so pleased with her service. My husband loved his new shirt and hat!! I love LLBean too. The quality of your clothes is just wonderful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FussyShopper1945 Great Little Hat
My husband had this hat last year and loved it. Then he lost it and recently replaced it with a new one. Very warm and not itchy at all. It is roomy and stretches nicely so it fits him well where many other hats, especially those made of fleece material, seem too tight. He was glad they still made this knit style hat.

I ordered this hat for my husband for the cold winter months. It fits comfortably over his ears, is not tight, and looks good. He is happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WifeyB Big hat... in a good way
I bought this hat for my husband to take on a ski trip last week. It matches the Loden color goose down jacket perfectly (which I cared about much more than him). I based this purchase off another review saying it was too big - since the hubs has problems with hats usually being too small. It fit perfectly and he didn't have any issues with the wool trim being itchy. He said it kept his (big) head nice and warm on the slopes.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Ma3944 Looks nice, not comfortable to wear
I ended up returning this hat because though the inside is fleece lined, the bottom edge is not. This lead to a very uncomfortable rubbing of the wool on the outside of the hat against the back of my neck. I tried rearranging the position to stop the rubbing but after many tries, nothing worked. If they made it so the fleece went just over the edge so it covered the bottom edge, I think it would be much better.

Rated 2 out of 5 by LLBeanTown76 Nice hat, too large
Hat seems nice, but the one size fits all sizing makes it so that this hat is just a bit too big for me to wear comfortably. I would wear a medium hat (7 1/4 if ordering a sized hat) if given the option, so if you have a larger melon maybe this will work for you.
