I bought size L/XL since I prefer loose fitting hats, especially since it's a beanie. It surprised me how small and shallow the product is. It's more like a skull cap, designed to be worn underneath helmets or hoods like the product description suggests. Still, it appears to be good quality and the thermal lining will hopefully deliver on extreme cold days. I will keep it for now.
I would recommend this product.

I love my new hat, it is perfect for the Chicago windy, cold weather. It runs on the small side (I bought L/XL) but except for that it is wonderful. Love the available colors. Happy that it comes in more than just basic black and white. Will definitely buy more Columbia products.
I would recommend this product.

I love the Omni Heat, but was disappointed with the Thermarator Hat. I bought three - one for me, my wife, and my son. The hats were a extremely tight fit and very uncomfortable. Returned all three hats.
I do not recommend this product.

Nice looking hat with no thought put into proper fit. Read all the reviews and still thought that a large size would fit. Wrong. This hat just barely fits. Ive got a nike beanie I just love.. Comparing why one hat is so much better I found that the nike has enough stretch in that it fits perfectly. The columbia hat has almost no stretch and is too small to boot. I can man handle it into an adequate fit..barely. Ive bought a lot of gear from columbia over the years and always loved the brand. So come on Columbia and start listening to your customers. Nobody wants to shell out 24 bucks for a hat that is uncomfortable. Fall out of love with this material and get back to something that works.

As happy as I was to find this on the Columbia site, I was extremely disappointed by the hat. The size was way too small. Not only was it too small for me, it was a tight fit for my 10-year old.
I cannot believe that Columbia would sell this as a product for adults - it is a huge misrepresentation.
I do not recommend this product.

Very warm and useful. Only thing is it fits a little snug. I am a bigger guy and have long hair so i suppose that could be why, i just thought it would stretch more than it really does. Great product.

This product is probably very good if it fits. I got a unisex L/XL and I have a very small head (female) and this hat was very tight. So I did not keep it. It would have fit a child.
I do not recommend this product.

Bought mine at the store today in Black. It is a nice fit, and the fleece is soft. As well as wearing it as outer wear, I will also use it under other hats/caps including a ski helmet. Good construction and it covers the ears nicely too.
I would recommend this product.

I have owned this product for a year now and is my primary cold weather hat. It keeps my head warm without the, "skull crushing" effect from other hats. Additionally, I wear glasses and the hat does not affect wearing glasses. A big plus is the had folds neatly and can be placed in a breast pocket of a jacket. Sizing does run small, I tried a S/M but that was TOO small. By the L/XL if you are in doubt.
I would 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.
I would recommend this product.

I have an average size head so I buy all my caps and gear online. Never had a problem before with 7-5/8ths head, but this cap is too small. I gave it two stars because the color and function are right on, but I ordered the L/XL and it ran way to small.
I do not 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.

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.
