This ear warmer is amazing! It is incredibly light weight and breathable. It is a great addition to my cold weather gear for those days when I am active enough to keep warm (and a hat is just too much protection), but I just need a light layer of protection to keep my ears warm. It really does the trick!
I would recommend this product.

This is a great quality headring. I love the fit and the way it looks. You can just tell it's a good headring. I used it on a chilly night when I went walking and it kept my ears from getting cold. It's probably better if you're running and working up a sweat. I think that my fleece headring is better insulated for those really chilly nights and will keep my ears and forehead warmer when I'm only walking.
I would recommend this product.

I have big ears; so I use this in conjunction with a knit cap. I use the headring low on my head to cover my ears. It does a good job of keeping my ears warm. I have a big head, and have a hard time finding things that can cover my ears. The l/xl size was big enough.
I would recommend this product.

this headband definitely will make a difference compared to if your head was just bare. however, it really isn't very warm, and i could feel wind through it. perhaps this underneath a fleece headring would work the best. i only got it cuz i had a $15 credit to use from columbia. i wouldn't have bought it myself after using it in 20 degree windchill weather.

Previous reviews said it was too small but I have a large head and got the larger size and it fits no problem. I love how light it is. never gets in the way and keeps my ears warm. I have worn it happily both skiing in the wind and during evening orchestra rehearsals.

I received a women's version of this headring for a gift and loved it. It really worked keeping me warm. My husband wanted one too, so I ordered him the largest offered. It is to small for his head and fits way to tight to benefit him. So, this item is great for small and medium sized heads but a real XL needs to be made.

After reading the reviews, I ordered the larger size for my daughter. She was looking for something to keep her ears warm walking to class. It was returned.

I bought a large/Extra large for my husband but he couldn't even slip it on. As a small female I can barely get it on (very little stretch) but it does keep my ears warm. I cannot imagine what the small size looks like.

Perhaps I have a larger head than I thought, but I got the smaller size and it fits a little tightly. However, it is very warm and because it's so tight I'm not worried about it going anywhere when I run with it. Overall it's agood product.

Lighter than expected

I'm not sure why I thought the fabric would be a little heavier; perhaps I was assuming it would be more like the Omni-Heat baselayer I received a few weeks ago. I haven't had a chance to test this out in the real world yet as it hasn't been quite cold enough, but when I tried it on it was super warm. The only thing I would like is a little more give in the seams because it can be a little rough to get on, but it's very comfortable once it's in place.
I would recommend this product.
