I have a few G I wool beanies and a few turtle fur wool beanies. Can't get the ears cold!!

For normal cold weather, I'd say 15+ degrees I like a military issue wool watch cap, very comfy. For colder I wear a rabbit fur hat, not sure make and model, my bro got me and my dad one each for Christmas a few years back, now that badboy is warm.
I use a Columbia rabbit fur lined hat when cold or a under armor cold weather beanie
Beanie and depending on how cold determines if it's polartech or wool. Over that if it's raining/snowing I wear this: http://www.duluthtrading.com/store/m...-mn/11106.aspx which I have had for years. I just wax the canvas every few years and it keeps me dry.
I have a Mad Bomber and absolutely love it, but be warned, it is either for extreme cold, or in my personal findings, best when not doing a lot of activity. It's very easy to work up a head sweat with that atop your head. It's a great hat though.
If you need me...I'll be in the woods.
90% of the time, I use a wool beanie hat from Marmot. If it's below 0F, I use a German milsurp flecktarn 'Mountain Cap' with the fold down ear flaps. That thing is toasty toasty warm, AND super cheap. I think Sportsmans Guide still carries them.

I'm not big on toboggan/toque/watch cap styles. I do have a US Army wool watch cap with the bill (Radar O'Reilly hat) which is decent - I like bills. My other issue with these types of headwear are that they do not block the wind well unless they have a Windbloc membrane and where I'm at the wind almost always blows.
