I have been wearing these hats for years; in fact, the first Carhartt product I ever bought was an acrylic watch hat. I've lost several of them, but have never ruined or worn one out. These hats are far superior to any other knit hat; they are very warm, comfortable, durable, and nice looking. Other hats make me itch; not this one! Other hats snag and the yarn pulls out; not this one! Other hats let the wind blow right through; not this one! Other hats get stretched out and won't stay on your head; not this one! This is the ideal cold weather hat and it goes great with a Carhartt jacket or hooded sweatshirt, and it even comes in all the same colors. I like the simple, classic styling, too; no silly braids or pom-poms or yarn mohawks, just a Carhartt tag on the front. Once again, well done, Carhartt!
