I bought the rose-colored hat and I love the soft color. I have very short hair and the hat is plenty roomy for me and covers my ears well. There is a sewn-in black polyester band that helps block the wind to protect my ears. I live in Minnesota and have worn it on long walks on days that are windy (with wind chill) and hovering around 10 degrees and my head and ears stayed toasty warm.
