Super comfortable, remarkably warm and incredibly stylish. The Hagan ski head band complements perfectly the race suit and fits comfortably under helmets. But the Hagan head band is certainly not a race only apparel item. Wear it training - whether that be ski touring, nordic skiing, running, bicycling, etc. — when you want a super adaptable way to stay warm and look good — and let people know you love ski mountaineering. The Hagan head band is quite "tall" top to bottom (much more so than in the graphic) so it easily covers the ears if desired, but can be folded up when you don't need as much coverage. And when you are going really hard and need to cool down, it takes up virtually no space in a pocket.
