Rated5out of5bypedaling ozfromall that you would expectGreat hat, all that you would expect from a Tilley hat. Pricey, but worth the extra bucks if you can keep it over the years.

Rated4out of5byDrTfroma different lidThis is an option other than a ski hat to go with my wool jacket. I log the style which is new for me and the ear flaps make it practical when things get ugly outside

Rated5out of5byDitufromGreat HatThis is a great hat, is very warm without overheating in cold weather. The earwarmers fit perfectly just around my ears and back of neck. I want to point out that this version of the Winter Hat does not have the tuckaway forehead warmer like it says in the description. I may never have used it, except on rare occasion, but would be nice if it had the forehead warmer and the wind tether like other versions have. This hat is exclusive to REI and is still an excellent, warm and stylish winter hat.

Rated4out of5byPj-NoVafromvery good, comfortablebought this 2 years ago for my daily commute to/from work. bc it's Tilley it has all the features you could want in a walking hat. It's very flexible, extremely comfortable and dries fast. And, of course, it keeps my bald head warm/dry. the brim is a nice addition. but as far as the rear ear flaps, they are "ok", but could be improved; in 15-20 mph winds they are useless, and I need my earmuffs for added warmth. Like all Tilley hats they have an adjustable chin strap that real handy in high winds.

Rated5out of5byBWCA BoundfromI like it!This hat is not for everyone, especially considering the hefty price tag. However, if you don't mind folks taking a second look when you walk by, it's a sturdy hat you'll probably have for a lifetime (and maybe even hand down to your kids).
My 4 year old calls it my Frosty [the snowman] hat. And it would make a great looking hat for the snowmen we make here in New England.
I wear it in sub-zero temps, snow, rain, sleet...you get the picture. It sheds water very well. The fit is snug without feeling too tight. I used the earflaps tonight while snow-blowing my driveway for two hours while a mix of snow and freezing rain was falling. Kept me warm and dry.
If you're looking for a hat built to last a lifetime and have a dividend burning a hole in your pocket, I highly recommend this hat.
Note that the hat is made of unstarched wool, so the top of the hat does crumple slightly. The brim is fairly firm and holds it shape well.

Rated5out of5byheydogrunfromOh, yeah - GREAT stuffExpensive (even on sale) but the quality backs up the price. Excellent material, and I think it will endure well. One thing: I normally wear a 7 1/4 in sized hats -- tried that on in the store and it would have given me a headache; ordered a 7 3/8 online and my noggin is happy.
