I havn't had the opportunity to use this hat in cold weather, but I am almost certain it is up to the task. I received this hat on time, the shipping (as many have previously said) was excellent. The hat actually includes a snap down face cover like most ushankas, that has fur underneath so it does not compromise the front of your forehead and skull. I did not see this information anywhere, but it was a nice suprise. The fur is amazingly thick and soft and covers your ears and wraps around almost to touch your chin as shown in picture, (presumably this is varied personally by your head size, hat size etc). This hat is built for extreme colds. I know most people are thrown off by the expensive price tag, but it is worth it, it seems. Arctic Fox is the warmest mammal fur on the planet: http://a-z-animals.com/animals/arctic-fox/ My hat did not seem to have as many black tipped hairs as the one shown in the picture, infact the one shown on this website (above) includes black leather ties and has a different shape. The one i received has white leather ties, perhaps they need to update the picture and include alternitave perspectives. Even if the hat you get is different than the picture, if it is like the hat i received, it will be equally as warm, I presume This hat is incredible so far, the quality and construction is amazing all with the eye on warmth. I will hopefully do a more in depth review when i can put it to the test in the -50C cold Alberta Cold.
Got my Blue Fox hat last Thursday, wore it twice, and a good friend of mine, George Nicholson, asked me about you and now tells me he has ordered two fur hats from you because of how good mine looked.
By the way, as you might suspect, I love mine! Fit was perfect; quality and look are outstanding. It is even a hands down trump of the outstanding khor'skin (ferret) hat I bought in the USSR and used while destroying missiles under the INF Treaty.
we have our new hat and love it so much thank you!
I eagerly unwraped my parcil and wasn't disappointed at my purchase. My Blue Fox Hat is much more than I expected. The quality is first class. Many thanks to all at Fur Hat World. I will definatly purchase from you again.
