Pros: Warm, dry, styling
Cons: Too warm sometimes
I have owned 2 of these since they came out. Each one has disappeared without explaination. I suspect that they are a hot enough ticket to get stolen. Its a wonderful hat. Worn with the sides up it can be a great hat for a bright cold day, or a light drizzle. Worn western style with the flaps down, its great in a downpour.
There is no better hat for a rainy day in the northwest, or a cold day skiing. And it is not just a backcountry hat, I wear mine in the city, and they are excellent.
Just get one.
