Great hat, but could be a bit longer.
- Could be longer
This is my primary winter hat. It is windproof and the fabric is very soft and comfortable. It also does a good job of wicking moisture away from my head.
The downside is that it could be a little longer. It doesn't quite cover the tips of my ears, which can be a problem when it is really cold. Other than that, I haven't found a better hat.

Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
Hunkering down in your tent for a few hours of sleep before the summit push, you don all your clothing to keep warm. The final step: pulling on your Outdoor Research Wintertrek Hat.
An exposed alpine belay ledge is no place to discover that you really prefer having a hat to turning blue. Before roping up with your partner, don your Outdoor Research WinterTrek Fleece Hat for an at-altitude adventure that doesn't end with you trying to thaw your own head in the oven.
CLOSEOUTS . Even though it's made of soft fleece, Outdoor Research's Wintertrek beanie hat still has an edge -- thanks to a gale-blocking, water-resistant Gore Windstopper(R) membrane. Available Colors: OLIVE/EVERGREEN, FUCHSIA/PLUM, LILAC/BLACKBERRY, FOLIAGE GREEN/BLACK, BLACK, COYOTE, ABYSS/BLACK, CROCUS/ORCHID. Sizes: S, M, L, 2XS, XS, XL, 2XL.

Put a lid on heat lost off the top of your head with this insulated Outdoor Research Wintertrek Hat. It's made with windproof GORE WINDSTOPPER fleece fabric and features a flat-seam construction along the contrast ear band. Outdoor Research utilized a classic four-panel construction that easily adapts to most head sizes. Unlike most beanies and knit caps out there, the Wintertrek Hat has a distinct hidden zippered pocket on the ear band that accommodates your hotel room key card or folded currency. One important note: When sized properly, the Outdoor Research Wintertrek Hat covers only a portion of your ears--the fabric doesn't extend to your lower ear lobes. This is a concern among some alpine and winter outdoor enthusiasts, although others tend to combine their Wintertrek Hat with a headband or insulated, lightweight ear protection.
