It's super warm. It's cozy, and it's beautiful. It does run small, and I have a small head. I bought a small and it fits, but it's snug enough to give me hat hair. If I want it to cover my ears, I have to make the cuff narrower by rolling it down an inch. I'm keeping it for chores, and I purchased two more in large. The large hats are prefect for me. No hat hair and they cover my ears. Now I look like the model in the picture.
