    Skull cap / skullcap recommendations?

    I've been riding with the same REI / Novara skull cap for over a year. I wear it anytime it's below 65 or so.

    Anyway, after all this time, I misplaced it. I ran in REI over the weekend and bought another one. It wasn't until I got home that I realized it's entirely different from the original one. The material and cut are different, and the hat slowly rides up, leaving my ears exposed. It's horrible and I can't wear it.

    Anyway, I need to place an order(s) for a replacement asap. Just wondering if anyone has a recommendation. I have a rather large head so if you know of something that runs small that info would be useful.

    Something with full ear-coverage is a must.

    I tried the performance one, and it's just okay. It's warm enough, might be tight for you, and the elastic leaves a mark on the skin for a little while after you take it off. I would be interested in trying out a wool one.

    I have VLC (Very Large Cranium). I use the one from SweatVac. It fits well. I like it so much I bought a second one, just in case they ever "improve" it.

    I just bought the Louis Garneau Power Cap, and it is warm and looks cool.

    I have a $10 wool skullcap from Target. Its headband also has a two- or three-inch polyester lining, which unfolds & pulls down to cover my ears and forehead when needed.

    I have the PI -- I have a normalish sized head and it fits perfect/tad big. Works well for any temperature -- I have problems with all other parts of my body before I have temperature problems with my head. I use it for under 45 down to 28 degrees, which is my coldest ride.
