This hat has great features and genius to the design, but the velcro straps are so bad as to outweigh all the other good features. I suggest DON'T buy it.


  • Fold down forehead magnetic piece
  • Interior fleece
  • Windstopper or equivalent
  • Good head coverage with which no scarf needed


  • Velcro stops working in 1 month
  • Velcro hooks damaged my nice jacket in 1 month

The hat is light years ahead of a Dome Perignon, but alas I am 1 or 2 years too soon for this fancy new hat technology because they used velcro instead of high quality metal snap buttons, which would be ideal. I hope they revise it to eliminate the velcro and put on metal snap buttons.
