very warm and like that it is relatively windproof. it would help if they had size comparisons to fitted hat sizes.
For example:
M/L 7 to 7 1/4
L/XL 7 3/8 to 7 3/4
Etc.
I would recommend this product.

I know I have a big head (7 1/4), but this L/XL is just not big enough. It will fit on but it promptly slips off enough to not cover my ears. It probably also has to do with my hairstyle (long). I suppose if you have the same size head and a crew cut, it would stay on your head. Can't say much about how warm it keeps you as I can't wear it. Know that the material doesn't stretch that much
I would recommend this product.

This hat runs a bit small, ..I would not consider my head to be be big... I'm 5 ft 4" 130 lbs and average build and I wear an XL in this hat. My husband insisted I get this hat, I was reluctant..because I usually do not like to wear hats, they are not warm or comfortable. However, when I recieved this hat, it is light weight, it fits great and I was wrapping presents and my head actually got HOT!! My daughter 11 years old wears a sm in the hat, and she loves hers as well.
I would recommend this product.

This hat is much too small for an adult. I ordered the L/XL size, but it barely reaches the tops of my ears. After trying it on (or attempting to try it on), I double-checked the website to ensure I ordered an adult hat. I cannot imagine who would possibly fit the S/M size.
It seems to be a very well constructed hat and would be comfortable for someone with an appropriate sized head. Granted, I have a larger than average head, but I thought ordering a L/XL would account for that. It does not.
So, if you are going to order this, make sure you have a smaller head and order the L/XL
I do not recommend this product.

I ordered the thermerator hat and another at the same time. I immediately noticed that this this is a very tight fit for a "L/XL" and runs overall small. It is a right fit and doesn't completely cover my ears, leaving the lower half exposed. The fleece is more like a micro fleece and almost a felt material.
Overall, the item kept my head, the part that was covered, nice and toasty at 50F outside. This morning, I had it at 38F and it still did well but I would consider using a hat that covered my ears better due to the size.
I would recommend this product.

Same as all the review say, it does run a little small. I wear a small or medium and should have ordered a large or XL. But it is very warm and I've used it often in 10-20 degree weather (Faranheit)
I would recommend this product.

I work at on the beach summer and winter. In the winter the winds turn to the north-north east and don't stop blowing until spring... It gets COLD. This hat has kept me warm on chilly nights down to 32 degrees standing outside for hours. I wish it were a little more windproof, but that goes hand in hand with it's breathability. It was a good purchase and I would make it again. Runs a little small.
I would recommend this product.

It's a very snug fit, however, it does a fantastic job of keeping your head warm. I LOVE this hat. Snug fit also means it doesn't shift around when you're out and about doing normal things. I used it while I was out shoveling snow and didn't have to stop to keep adjusting it at all.
I would recommend this product.

The product is very good and very warm, however I wear a fitted 7 1/2 hat the L/XL is a little tight and only covers about half my ear. I am hoping after use, it will stretch just a tad and then the product would be perfect.
I would recommend this product.

Wish it would get colder here in NYC. Only one or two nights in 20's up to this point. Climate change is making this hat kind of obsolete in the Northeast. When it's in the 60's in November, something's not right. Hopefully it'll be a cold winter so I can use this hat to its full potential because it sure kept me warm on those cold nights.
I would recommend this product.

After a few weeks of wearing...

Have to agree this hat runs FAR TOO SMALL (painfully so). I'm not a big guy and don't have a huge head. But knowing how products run small these days, I ordered the XL just in case. Hadn't worn it much it all because it's been warm in the Northeast, but it's gotten colder. And when I wear it now, after a while my ears hurt because it's such a tight fit. Keeps my head warm, no doubt, but can't imagine wearing this hat for any extended length of time without my ears being in pain once its taken off. And they do hurt, trust me. Even when wearing it.
Must downgrade my rating to 1 star because if a simple product like a winter hat causes pain, it's not well designed.
TOO SMALL FOR A PRODUCT MARKED AS XL. NEED TO DESIGN AN XXL OR SIMPLY MAKE THE XL BIGGER
(and then send everyone who requests it, the bigger hat).

I usually wear a size 7 - 7 1/4 hat, depending on the shape of it, and I was given this hat in the L/XL ( size: 6 3/4 - 7 1/2) which fits me comfortably and covers the majority of my ears. I honestly can't say that I notice any added warmth from the omni-heat in the hat, but it's still my main beanie for cold weather and light rain.
I would recommend this product.

I got the XL had and it is too small, I wear a 7 1/4 hat but this thing is way too small. Also, as I am writing this review is see the hat is only $16.50 and I paid $22.00 for it a few weeks ago. I think you should send me a refund for the difference!!!
I am not satisfied with the fit at all
I do not recommend this product.

Fantastic hat, but beware, they run SMALL in size. I ordered a L/XL just because of what others stated in reviews about sizing. I do not have a L/XL head, and this hat is still a tad snug.
