This is my second Stormy Kromer hat... the first is a camo Gore Tex version. It NEVER leaves my pack. My only complaint was when it hit below freezing, my ears would get cold, the ear flaps just did not come down far enough. I just bought the Storm Kromer Rancher... It's a game changer! This hat is awesome... the flap comes down over the ear and is very warm. I highly recommend this hat!
