In addition to the sturdy forehead, this hat also features a face mask that wraps around from your right and snaps into the left ear flap. This is very warm, but it might be too much on a moderately cold day. In that case, the face mask rolls up easily and can be fastened to the right ear flap to keep it out of the way.

In addition, the ear flaps extend all the way around the bottom of your chin. You can leave them up if you so desire, but it’s nice to be able to cover your entire face on those truly frigid days.
