I wear this while cycling. It fits great under my helmet and does exactly what I want it to do, namely keep my ears and head warm.

Does its job
The hat keeps my head warm and serves its purpose. I was a little weary when I first opened the hat and it felt like it was starched. Also when I put it on the side vents do not line up on my ears as I expected. After wearing the hat a few times and breaking it in, it is a good quality hat. It is thin and keeps heat well which is important for me because I wear a helmet most the day and this hat does not affect how the helmet fits.

Not quite what I wanted.
I had previously purchased a wind stopping fleece hat from MH and was looking to replace it (it was lost last St. Patty's Day, go figure). MH didn't have the same hat that I could find, so I tried this one. As soon as I put it on, stitches in the stretchy part on the back began to rip out. If I had a particularly large head or if the hat felt very small on me, this would make sense. I don't think the first is true and I know the second isn't. The hat fits fine, overall, but some of the stitching just didn't seem to work with how much the material can stretch. Otherwise, it is a decent product. If you're looking for an extra layer to go under a helmet, this hat would be the ticket. If you're looking for something to serve as your primary noggin warmer, try something else.

Nice beanie, for small noggins
I really like the beanie. I've had it to the snow already this year and it performed very well. The only problem I've had with it was that even though I ordered and received a large, I had to soak it and stretch it overnight to fit my size 71/2 head.
