I've had this hat over one waterfowl season and have used it sparingly. First off the hat is warm and adjustable so the overall fit and comfort in cold weather is great. The ear laps are well designed - far better (soft and comfortable) than other ear flap hats that I've worn. The hat is warm, so much so that I use more breathable toques for set up and take down. But once the wind howls this piece is in its element and keeps my head snug over long periods waiting for birds to show up. However, I find the shape of the brim negatively affects my vision while trying to pick up birds, and particularly when I'm in the gun at the shot. The brim has quite an oval shape and the sides tend to sit a bit too close to my glasses. The curve of the brim occasionally blocks out my pick up point on crossing birds. So when things get busy in the blind I prefer to wear other head gear. My preference would be a flatter brim and one that is slightly shorter. I have a big head @ 7 5/8 + and fairly oval in shape so finding a hat that fits well can be tough. The adjustability of this hat allows it to fit my big head apart from the brim issue. If the brim fit me better I would rate this hat much higher.

Best hat ever. Keeps your noggin, ears, neck warm. Also gives your face a shadow with a small bill. Great design. You will sweat when moving around in it

This is a very warm hat and one of the best that I own. I really like it because it is like a mix between a hat and a beanie. It also keeps your ears warm while concealing your eyes when the birds are circling.

Great hat that keeps you ears toasty. I like it because it is a mix between a hat and a beanie. The bill keeps you from cow facing

I hunt my ducks in NW WA. The Nor eastern winds coming out of Canada, can be fierce to just downright wintery cold. At 60, I finally found the best duck hunting cap that will ever be made hands down. The wind that day was going through me bc I forgot to change jackets. My head and ears were no match for the wind. This hat will never fall off your head at overhead shots. Get this cap it's the best out there.

Super warm hat. Fits my large head fine. This is a sit in the cold and don't walk kind of hat. Once you start moving you will heat up!

Exactly what you need on a cold drizzly north wind day! Keeps the wind and wetness off your neck while allowing your head to stay warm and dry. Also, this is a very durable hat.

This hat is fantastic! I thought the Boreal was my favorite. I think it just got replaced. The brim helps a lot while looking East at the sunrise and the "flap" on the back keeps your neck warm when that wind is creeping up behind you. Fantastic piece of gear. Very warm and functional. It exceeded my expectations for sure!

Hat seems like it would be very warm and dry if I could wear it. These hats run VERY small, and I have passed that on to Sitka a couple times. Hopefully, the 2016 lineup has taken this into consideration.

This is the warmest piece of head gear that I have found. In fact, I have started putting it in my pack for the walk in then switching to it once in the blind or pit. This is definitely a hat for the coldest days.

This hat is everything I've wanted in a cold weather hat for years. Brim, waterproof, breathable, camo, warm, adjustable, soft inside. I wore it for the first time today, for a coastal marsh hunt in the snow. I never got cold or wet or over heated. I've worn three things at once on my head before, trying to duplicate what this hat does. I can't over emphasize how happy I am with way it fits and works. Great piece of gear! My forth Sitka Gear purchase, no regrets yet. Now, if I could just come up with the extra funds for a Delta Wadding Jacket....
