Pilot Cap In Organic Cotton
This was a product I knew we needed before our baby was even born, having had friends with bald babies who wore them past their first birthday. For the smallest we chose a plain (non-striped) one, as part of the baby shower activity of decorating plain clothing with fabric markers. I love that it covers his ears, yet is light weight - ideal for sunny, windy days, and slim enough to fit under a warmer hat if it's quite chilly.

Sizing varies, strange fit
I was so excited to buy these hats in more than one color. When they arrived, the blue one fits fine but the green one has a strange fit. When the hats are side by side, the sizing is also a it different. My son is a week shy of 7 months and is a small baby with a small head compared to other babies we see and the hat in size small is too wide on the part that goes around the neck, too short on the forehead, and the part that goes over his ears only goes over half of his ears. Since the blue color fits fine, I wonder if this particular green hat has a mistake in sizing.
(I also got his type of hat in the solid color and it fits better as well, wish I got more solid colors instead).

like the tie feature
Tie helps keep the hat on when carrying baby around. .no more picking hats up off the floor!

Looks better in picture than on baby
These striped hats are slightly different than the ordinary solid pilot caps. In order for the stripes to be arranged what they thought looked best, then the stretch of the fabric was actually opposite of what it normally is for the middle panel of the hat; also the ribbing around the edge is done the opposite way. I am a sewer so I can see that because of that, the hat doesn't fit exactly the same as the others. I had to exchange hat sizes because the fit was different, I've bought (and LOVED) these hats for years and years for all 6 of my children so I thought I knew what size to get. I still do think they're darling!

My baby looks so cute with this hat, beside its hard to find a nice hat for a 10 month baby or older. And it works perfect for my baby who used to sweet a lot and this material keep her head dry!

I like this but prefer the winter version
This was okay for a new baby but not for an older baby. The pilot winter cap is awesome for an older child. This cap seems to sit farther back on the head and it bothered me.

Very thin fabric
I was expecting better quality from Hanna Andersson but this cap is made of extremely thin cotton. Also, it fits oddly on my 5 month old son. He has a small to average size head and the navy top fits fine, but the white band puffs out the front..very odd fit. I would return it but the shipping is a lot of money (international)..Not impressed.

The perfect covering for babies with fuzzy heads!
My baby has been wearing Hanna's pilot caps since she was a newborn. I love the easy, comfortable protection from sun, wind, and chill, while also their being breathable and relatively light. Perfect for ALL SEASONS! The ties mean that the cap STAYS ON, comfy over their ears. Also adorable!
