My kids love these. I no longer have to tell them to cover their ears because they love the colors and they're light but keep the wind off. If you want something heavy for something like... oh...sitting around in the wind ice-fishing... These are not for you.... I think they are a little too light for truly bitter weather but for where we live (mild winters) or if you are going out to be active, they are perfect. They are soft and stretchy such that the kids will pull one down to cover their neck (and not feel choked) then make a beanie out of another and cover their ears too. When a bad cold snap came in for two days, we found we could put on 2 - one at the neck and ears and then pull a hoodie over them easily. And it wasn't too bulky nor restrict movement. For sports in chilly weather my kids liked to keep one on their necks to pull over their mouth cold ears or their whole head while on the bench. There's enough in this package to easily mix & match colors and have some fun with them. I like it because they are a good buy too. Winter will soon be over (end of February) here but we will probably buy another set next year to add to the fun with more color and pattern choices. I would recommend to a friend.
