Just received this today so we haven't had the chance to try it out in winter, but for a youth cap, this thing is built tough. I have no doubts it will last through several kids. Just fits my 12 year old, so it will be good for a season or two. Luckily the grandson will be getting an awesome hand me down in a year or so and will most likely gets passed down again. Super soft lining and very comfortable with a tough, durable exterior. Just want a kids hat should be. Comfortable and tough. Cant wait for colder weather to put this to the test.
