Erin,

The relatively lightweight winter cap I bought from you today at the swap is the perfect middle between nothing and the Bern winter kit.  I wore it home and I loved it!

Erin,

Do you make more traditional styled cycling caps as well (ie. not as low in the back)? I'm looking for one of those in XXL or XXXL.
