I wasn't sure what to expect, but I was happy when it arrived! I normally don't go for "yellow" colors, but this is very much a gold and it's really pretty! It's soft, it's stretchy so it fits many head sizes and it's lightweight. While it won't do a lot for my cold Minnesota winters, it'll be perfect for fall days, windy afternoons on the trail and bad hair days...lol. Plus, it balls up to something the size of a clementine, so it takes up very little space in a backpack! Thank you! Oh...also...it's recycled fabric!
