I love this hat ! In all but the worst weather, I ride a bike to exercise my dogs. This means that I am out there in wind and rain storms plus when it's freezing cold. My other "winter" hats keep my head warm, but often my ears are nearly frozen. This is the item that was missing from my Doggie Run wardrobe and I'm so glad I found it! The visor is a real blessing to keep eye glasses free of snow and rain, and my ears have never been so happy. Plus I had to ask questions before I made my choices, and staff was excellent. Thank you!!
