Great, warm hat. I have a big head to begin with, then try to add it over something like a thin balaclava and it is way too tight. I usually wear a stocking cap over a trucker hat, but there's no chance with this thing.

LEGIT! This beanie laughs at cold and wind. I carry it on every hunt along with the matching neck gaiter. Cozy, comfortable, awesome. Been down to -35 in Eastern Montana, and plenty of cold spots in Idaho, Nevada, Utah, and Wyoming too. Must have. I wear a 7 1/8" ball cap and it fits me well but can also slip over a ball cap glassing when the sun's out. Perfect glassing companion. Best blinder to pull over your eyes for that mid-day nap too. Keep it off the ground, the soft fleece will grab every seed, burr and leaf in sight.

This is warm and comfortable but I quickly found in the windy Wyoming mountains it had a tendency to get lifted off my head pretty easily. In comparison, the jetstream beanie worked well and did not blow off but did not have enough insulation. Wish this stayed put better. Did not like having to hold it in place.

I recently tested many Sitka products on my recent hunt for Ibex in Kyrgyzstan. 15 degree mornings at 12,500' found me horseback in the Tien Shan Mountains on the border of China. The Blizzard Beanie is the finest cold weather cap I have ever seen. It kept me warm and only in the most physical situations did I feel a bit sweaty with it on. Sitka is extreme equipment for extreme conditions.

I just returned from 7 days in the Idaho mountains Elk hunting. I didn't expect snow, but we spent most days dealing with very cold weather. The Blizzard Beanie was the one item that made the chilling cold on my ears disappear!! It is now a necessity in my pack!!

I guide on the North Slope of the Brooks Range in Alaska. It gets REALLY cold there. I have tried every beanie I could find, none worked well there, not enough insulation, no wind stop, they just didn't do the job. With the Blizzard Beanie I finally found one that works. I wore it all the time, I even slept with it on, it was nice to finally be warm. I my opinion this is one of the best pieces of gear I own and if you hunt, guide or recreate in a cold climate you should not be without the Sitka Blizzard Beanie. If I could give it 10 stars I would!!!
