I received the hat today and have been wearing it most of the day - inside my house - that is how much I like it. If fits snugly and nicely and looks stylish.....I bought the blue/charcoal. I asked my teenage son what he thought; as he has good taste in clothes and can be rather finicky. He really liked it. I can't speak to the durability of the hat as I just received it but it appears to be constructed well and looks like it will last a long time.

Amazing warmth to weight!
I have owned at least 20 different beanies and I have to say that this beanie is hands down the best warmth to weight ratio. The cut of this beanie is quite awesome as well, as it covers the entire back of my neck and ears with ease. The beanie is sort of stretchy, and at first it looks like it would let wind in, but it does a decent job (it is far from windproof) at not being decimated by the wind. On winter hikes I just throw this on over a visor and I have warmth and some sun protection and it fits great. Dries quick and maintains its warm retaining abilities while wet. I have put it on straight from the washer and it has been quite warm.

I LOVE this hat!!! The Gradient Hat is made of wool and as a result it is SOOO warm. Unlike fleece hats, this hat does not allow wind to penetrate due to its tight wool weave. It looks great, too!!
