OK, I'll confess off the front that I have a 'mature hairline' for a guy in his 50's, so am often wearing a hat when out being active of some sort to protect my head. The beanie is AWESOME. Design is great, and it's a good deep fit, able to cover your ears when it's chilly outside. We're also able to roll up an inch, with a design on the inside so it looks proper. Thick material compared to another beanie I own. My most often used piece of my SurgeActive Wear: definitely a must in the Spring/Fall, and early morning summer days!
