I really love this hat! The colors are artsy but subtle, not flashy like many similar ones. The slightly curved shape works for me, it covers the whole ear so it really keeps them warm in a wind and it actually stays there (!) and doesn't ride up and expose your ears as you are walking. A hat that looks good and actually does it's job!
