Nice, but not what I'd hoped.

I was looking for a super-warm hat for really cold conditions. The problem with this hat is that the whole lower portion (the black section below the colored section filled with Primaloft) is just a really lightweight fleece. The cold wind just rips right through that fleece part. This leaves the lower half of my head cold while the top of my head (ensconced in primaloft) is toasty. Frustrating... Poor design choice... I guess MH designed it that way so as not to cut down on your hearing. There must have been some better solution that this though.
