I already had the Original and the Rancher, but this Midway is by far my favorite. The Original is very comfortable, but the ear flaps don't cover my ears completely. Iowa winters are fierce, so that doesn't always work. The Rancher fixes that, but if I'm working outside, it can be too warm. I always wished I could get a combination, and now I have exactly that! The Midway is perfect for most days. My ears stay warm, I don't overheat, and it is just as comfortable as the original. You guys knocked it out of the park with this one!
