Was looking for something to keep my ears warm during the polar vortex and found these. They go perfectly with my leather A-2 jacket. Not bulky like some sheepskin hats, folds easily and goes into pocket. When I arrive at my office, I just drop all my items into the hat, i.e. glasses, phone, gloves, keys, etc. Harder to lose that way.
Looks good with ear flaps up or down. While no one has commented positively or negatively, that is not the point. The point is they kept me warm during the last polar vortex and for the next several ones.
Looks weathered out of the box so to speak. Soft and comfy to boot. Love them. (Posted on 1/17/2014)
