Rated 4 out of 5 by twinsplus super-soft lining warms up simple fleece hat
My kids already have a decent selection of winter hats, but I purchased two of these reversible fleece/sherpa hats for my sons because the colors and style appeared to be a good match for the particular fleece-lined parkas we picked out. I bought the alpine green/navy striped hat to match the alpine green/stars coat, and the seacloth blue/black striped hat for the seacloth blue/navy striped coat.
While these hats will work fine for us, I wish HA had made slightly different choices for the color combos. I think the blue striped hat would look much better with navy stripes instead of black, plus it then would match the two seacloth blue striped coats in HA's line this year: the boys Marshmallow Hoodie and the Fleece-Lined Parka. I don't know why they opted for black instead.
And while the alpine green (a tannish army green) looks okay with navy stripes, and does coordinate with the colors in Hanna's camo down jacket, grey stripes instead would coordinate just as well with that jacket, and would be a better match for the ONLY other "alpine green" outerwear item in this season's catalog! (The alpine green Fleece-Lined Parka has dark gray stars, not navy.)
These catalog items seemed like obvious matches for those coats and so these small differences between their colors are a little confusing and disappointing, aesthetically. But the hats are a close enough match to be worth keeping and they will work fine for us with these coats. My boys like the soft sherpa and say that the hats are comfortable. And they consider them to be perfect matches for their new jackets, so that is great!
The quality is solid and the fit is as described by the sizing chart.
