Great fit and stays on with little adjustment, however the brim is a bit crooked. Upon visiting the purchase place at a later time, I found that all the hats had the similar characteristic, just off center brim placement. Other than that, a good cold weather hat.
I have trouble finding hats that fit my head. Even for big-headed guys like myself, this cap fits very well and is very comfortable to wear. The insulation in the cap and the ear flaps really help to keep out the cold. This item is a necessity if you work outside during those frigid winter months!
I purchased this hat for my husband as a gift after he saw it on carhartt.com. We live in Upstate NY and he plows snow during the winter season as a full time job. He loves the versatility of this hat as he wears it as a regular baseball cap on nicer days, then flips the ear flap down when its cold or snowy. He no longer brings two hats to work. Several of his coworkers commented on what a great idea this hat was and how they wanted one just like it. He has worn it over a month now and it still looks like new. It was a good quality purchase that has served him well.
This is probably the best cap I've ever had. Makes me wish winter was already here, and I hate winter. Comfortable, warm, durable, great fit, good-looking. Bought a black one a while ago at a retailer and just ordered an army green one mailorder yesterday. Only improvements I would suggest would be more solid colors, and also a few patterns of camo. One of the few choices for a cap like this, too, and it is pretty well done.
Warm but not overbearing, just right for some quick work outside, or short commutes, if you plan on being outside all day, a true winter hat would be more suitable choice. Another size choice would also be good, the small/medium was a hit too big for me.
Just get it. Comfortable. Warm. Wind-resistant. And with the secret weapon earflaps deployed, great for pretty much any winter activity. Plenty water resistant for snowblowing, and quite comfortable with the flap up and invisible. I like mine so much that I have given a couple as gifts to other baseball-cap kinda guys.
The cap is the usual excellent Carhartt quality. But the fit is a problem. With earflaps up, it fits fine. With ear flaps down, it's too loose. I guess this would be a problem with any hat that has the ear flaps on the inside. Next time I'd go with a hat with the flaps on the outside.
