Fleece Ponytail Headband Review

My job as a crossing guard puts me outside a lot in the winter.  The cold winds, chilly temps and snow leave me needing something to protect my ears.  I typically wear a basic fleece headband, but with really long hair that I often wear up, I was intrigued by the ponytail headband I came across, so I bought it.

This headband has a cut out in the back specifically for ponytails to fit through, making it easier for women to use, and more convenient as the headband stays in place instead of slipping around hair.
The headband is made of soft fleece with a binding around the edges to give it a finished look and hold it all together.  This binding also criss-crosses in the back around the hole for the ponytail.
I love the concept of this headband.  It is well constructed and of quality materials.  Sadly, it is much too large for my head.  I got it in a medium, the only option offered to me, and it is quite loose on my head.
It is so loose that it slides all around, even with my ponytail in place, and the cold air just sneaks right around the gaps.  So, unfortunately, it will not be of any use to me.
I also feel like the fleece is pretty thin in comparison to my basic fleece headband.  It has dual layers, while this is just a single layer of fleece, so it is not nearly as warm or protecting.  I can't add this one to my list of recommended products at this time.
