Women's Polartec Aircore 200 Rollbrim Hat
Oh my gosh! If I could find the words to describe how happy I am that LE brought back this great hat..... I purchased this hat 15+ yrs ago in all three colors (blue black and grey.....have worn the grey one a thousand times, lost the navy one and the black one, for some reason, I ordered in a SM (too tight), so ended up giving it away......leaving me with the grey only......I have absolutely babied this hat since I haven't been able to get another one......well decided to just see if, by any chance!, LE brought back this awesome hat and they did! HAPPY HOLLY is all I can say.....highly recommend this hat :)

I love the style of this hat.
I bought this style of hat from LE years ago and it was too big. I never got around to exchanging it so whenever I would wear it I would have to constantly push it up out of my eyes. I was excited to see LE brought the style back so I ordered the small/medium. Now this one is just a little too small. I really wish they would have a size in between. I would definitely buy it.

Not like earlier models.
While this hat is comfy and warm, it is not the quality of the same model hat I purchased several years ago. It is definitely thinner. Time will tell if it holds up as well as the first one I had. Only reason I purchased this one is that I sadly misplaced the original.

My favorite hat
This is my favorite winter hat. I have bought them in every color. They are big and warm, however not tight on your head so you do not have hat hair. It is very stylish. It washes well.

The l/xl is a little big, but it's quite warm. (It's had a good trial the last few days in very cold Chicago.) It's very easy to change the brim depth and the look of the hat. Recommended!

I ordered this in L/XL because I have a big head for a woman and always have problems finding large enough hats. But the one I received is really HUGE! It might fit a man with an extra big head, no normal woman.
It seems warm and comfortable, but the color ivory is much too yellow for my taste. Makes many people's skin tone appear dirty.
Unfortunately, returning it from Norway is not an option because of the prohibitive shipping costs. Deeply regret this purchase.

This hat is adorable and fits perfectly.
I have a medium size head and thick hair and the small hat fits perfectly. I have been looking for the right hat for awhile now with no luck. This is a classic that I can wear with my professional winter coat and weekend jackets.

cute hat but way too big
This hat looked and felt great but it's just too big and floppy to keep the wind out of my ears (which is surely what you buy a warm hat for) Too bad because it's so cute I'm torn between sending it back and altering it myself to see if I cant fix it somehow.

Nice, but high maintenance
Love the fabric and warmth of this hat. However, I'm always having to fuss with it as I guess it must be a bit too large like the other reviewers have noted. My old Lands End rollbrim hat I could just pull on and go, but this one I have to carefully adjust the width of the brim around my head each time I put it on so the front is not coming down too close to my eyes. On the upside, it covers my ears better and it still looks incredibly stylish!

LE Hat Sizing problems
I have a medium to large size head (just measured 22 3/4), and I had problems a couple of years ago with a LE hat that was too small. My 6 year old son got more wear out of my - I guess it was a -Women's Polartec Aircore 100 Hat- from the look of the style.
This time, I thought I'd try the roll-brim style in a Large/XL. This hat is ridiculously huge (one is 12" flat and the other is about 12 1/2" flat at the middle seam - which makes it 24-25" around). I just looked up the size chart and it says someone with a 23" head would be a large. When I put this hat on my 22 3/4" head, I can also put my fist in there - there's that much extra room. I've read a few reviews where women really like it because it doesn't smush down their big hair styles. I don't have big hair, and I think this size would not insulate, being too big, and it might float away in the wind.
I would get the Small-Medium size, but I read an earlier reviewer (on October 26, 2013) say that the Large/XL was too big, and the Small/Medium fit her 6-year old granddaughter better (just like my earlier experience), and on her it was too small-she couldn't get it on her head. So, I concur with her - the sizing on these hats is off, and it would be nice if the sizing would be a middle ground - either one size fits all (or most). Or else to have three hat sizes, for small, medium and large.
I would like to have a couple of hats to match the color of my new scarves! It's disappointing. I'll see if they have them in stock at the LE outlet when I return these L/XL... to see if truly the Small/Medium is too small, but I wouldn't go to the trouble of ordering it, I'm not optimistic.
