This hat fits well, but might be tight for someone with an overly large melon. I wear a 7 1/4 fitted hat, and this hat would accomadate larger. Very warm, covers the ears, much better than what I've always worn before.
I had to order from the website because no stores in my area carry the fleece hats anymore. I do not know why. I have been wearing these for years at the flower farm and when I do logging. On cold rainy days you can simply wring them out and put them back on. For hiking they are perfect because they are lightweight. Com'on Carhartt--get 'em back in the stores and shave that extra $$ back off. Show that your company cares! George Africa, Vermont Flower Farm Marshfield VT 05658
Warm, firm fit but not "too firm", comfortable and great for all outdoor activities, a good choice for all. Really enjoyed it this winter and wishing I had ordered one many years earlier! You will not be disappointed with this one.
