The hat is very comfy and even with my super poofy hair, it still manages to cover up my ears. The inside fleecy liner is real nice, but not stretchy. The stretch band that allows the hat to stretch out open doesnt go far. I actually snapped the inside fleece off from the outside layer in several places, the inside seem. The sewing of the seem is pretty poor and this affects the tightness of the hat. The hat is still totally wearable and looks real cool and does its job keeping me warm.
