Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Comfortable! I was shocked how light weight this was with still being functional. I almost always wear my hair up and it's uncomfortable under a hat so I wanted to try this route and see if it worked better for me. It certainly does! The headband kept me warm without feeling uncomfortable or bulky and I could still wear my hair up easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps my ears toasty warm! I LOVE this earband. I have a small head and usually need to buy youth-size headwear, but the small size fits perfectly. It stays put, even with my slick hair. It is lightweight and comfy, but still warm and keeps the wind out. I live in Colorado, and used it all winter. It was never too hot or not warm enough. I will be getting more of these. I've also washed it several times and let it air dry without any issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from actually covers my whole ear! I've tried so many of these and they are always slightly off. The most annoying is that the bottom of my ear lobes stick out. so, I have to wear it at strange, uncomfortable angles to cover my whole ear. this one not only covers my whole ear but it does so w/o either slipping or squeezing too tightly. it is relatively thin so it doesn't feel bulky. I can wear a slightly adjusted hat on top of it. I haven't had the occasion to test how warm it'll keep my ears on a truly cold day but I have faith in the Omni heat tech.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm ears! Have been looking for something like this for a while. Very thin and light but warm for the ears given the reflective interior and fleece outside. Fits me perfectly (my head is a size large in ski helmets) and nice to have some color other than black. Easy to wash by hand, could also probably put it in the washer if you wanted to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect headwrap Love the fit, love the functionality, love the color! This product is exactly what I was looking for. It covers and protects the ears from wind and cold. I'm considering buying several more for family and myself as a backup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Serves my purpose well This is the best head band I’ve ever worn. It is comfortable, remains in place keeping wind from my ears. It’s especially nice when I’m horseback riding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extra ear protection I needed something more to protect my ears in the sub zero weather. I already own a thermal neck gator that I bought from Columbia, so I bought the matching headring. I was not dissapoointed. Great investment.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Thermarator Headring This product is very thin and does not live up to its intended function of what I invisioned a thermagear headband to do. Feels more like a hairband around your ears and does not keep your ears warm. Sorry Columbia, I expected a little more out of this piece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Fleece Headband While we haven't had very cold weather yet, I did wear it in 28 degree weather...I LOVE this headband! The inside of it has that product that reflects the warmth of your body back onto you & your ears. It doesn't mess up my hair, and is very lightweight, yet warm. I will probably buy at least one more for another coat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really useful Not flimsy and truly serves it purpose. Kept my ears really warm. I just had to return a previous ear cover from another store when I saw this one and boy, was I right!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just okay Based on other reviews bought the larger size but seems to fit a bit loose. Also, seems thinner than I expected. Expected to streach more and more fleece. Overal it's okay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for running! I got this to keep my ears warm during winter runs, and now that I've used it a few times, I'm so happy I did. It helps keep my ears and head a little bit warmer, without causing the overheating that running with a hat does! I'm planning on using it for hiking and x-country skiing, too.
Date published: 2017-12-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Winter I got this to wear during the winter months going on runs or walks with my dog. It fits perfectly over my ears and over my headphones which is great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thermarator Headring Love the style. Measured my head per the sizing guidelines but I find this headring runs a little small.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect to keep your ears warm.... Living in Oregon, we experience a wide range of situations where it can be sunny one minute and cold and rainy the next. I am not normally a hat person, but these are great when you just need to keep your ears warm. Love this years colours! Thank you for making a well made product. I Love supporting local (and made in the USA) businesses.....You make it so easy to do when you continue to put out exceptional products that last!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thermal headband I got this headband to wear for walking my dog in chilly temperatures. The thermal technology is different from anything that I've seen before and very neat. I ordered the black headband and it looks great. Very comfortable and a good purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more earaches My boyfriend and I rely upon of bikes for transportation to work, stores, and general recreation. This head ring not only keeps your ears warm, it helps keep the wind from blowing in your ears. It fits well with helmets. It is also great for just walking down the street. It keeps my hair out of my face too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This has great features Love the color inside it's not cold enough to wear it yet looking forward to it in a winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Order a L/XL Just be aware that if you have an average size head you will need to order the L/XL. I wear a 7 3/8 size hat and the L/XL fits well. Additionally, it is cute and warm and stays in place well when my long hair is up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this! Great for snow shoeing! I took this with me last Sunday on a 6 mile snow shoe trail where the weather was 10 degrees and a windchill of -5. My ears were so nice and warm and the second I put it on I could feel the warmth staying in. Absolutely recommend this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what you'd expect from Columbia Its very lightweight. It does what I want it too and I am not disappointed.
Date published: 2017-02-09
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Order larger size! I haven't tested this in the cold yet, but I'm not sure I'll be able to as it's quite tight. I'm a slender woman with an average size head, and I ordered a size S/M. So, I'd recommend ordering a size larger than you think you'll need.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm ears I bought two of these one for me and one for my 15-year-old daughter. We took them skiing all day in 30° weather. I and my daughter get cold very easily but these of Our ears very warm. I was very happy and will be buying more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hot dots and fit for the win I really liked the thin and perfect-fit of this headband. It will be perfect for riding horses - sweat wicking, not bulky, won't slide around or slip up/down and is thin enough to put a hat on over it if need be. Hot Dots are great, too, to keep me warm if I'm not active or just doing chores, but wearing in the elements. It's a win.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good I've only had an opportunity to wear this once by it fit snugly (a good snug) and kept my ears warm. I have a smaller head so I have a hard time finding things that will fit (hats, ear warmers, etc) so this was a very pleasant surprise! I love the Omni-heat technology because it is so warm (I also have a vest with this and am often hot). Overall o highly recommend this!
Date published: 2017-01-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great I love using this under my bike helmet as it's not super bulky but keeps my ears warm while not over heating top of my head or crunching my hair and head inside my helmet. Easy to pack in my purse for storage while not outside on a cold day.
Date published: 2017-01-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for running in the cold Fleece is super soft and warm.. I bought a sm/md even though I'm a large because I wanted it fitted so it'll stay out while running.
Date published: 2017-01-08
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just too small overall I've been wearing headrings for years, as I have really thick hair that keeps my head warm, but my ears get cold. I wanted to try this fancy Thermarator headring, but ended up disappointed by the overall size. Specifically, I have a large noggin, wearing XXL motorcycle helmets. While the L/XL does stretch to fit my head, it's a bit tight. I've only worn it two days, so I'm hoping it will stretch out. But of more concern to me is the vertical size of the sides. The ear pads area are way too small, leaving my ear lobes exposed and cold. I feel like I'm wearing a child's version instead of an adult version! I would have returned it, but with the cost of the product doesn't make sense to pay for shipping....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Nice Headband This headband is quality made. I measured my head size and it measured for a S/M size. I decided to get the L/XL size because I read the other reviews and the headband runs a liitle on the small size. I am very happy with the L/XL size.

Date published: 2016-09-18
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too small and ear section in wrong place - can't wear I have a large head (I wear a Large motorcycle helmet) and thought this headband would be ideal for when my ears are cold as I was relocating to Europe from Australia. I bought 2 (graphite and hyper purple) in L/XL and they are too tight, the seams also broke when putting it on my head. The ear sections on both are also in the wrong place, even if I turn them around, so I can't wear them at all. The quality looked good and they were lightweight. With international delivery, there was no point in returning them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally! Something that fits over BIG curly hair!!! I absolutely love that I stumbled upon this little item while trying to find something that could possibly keep my ears warm. I have extremely big, curly hair. I love beanies the problem with those is my hair gets in the way of being able to fully cover my ears (not enough room in the beanie to hold all my hair). Not with the thermarator!! It covers nicely without restriction. I did take a chance with the S/M and it fits, but I will say it has little to no stretch. Love the Omni-Heat Technology.
