Good quality gear as you'd expect from Castelli. The flaps covering the ears are great. I've worn it on the odd occasion when I've not worn a helmet and it's been 5-10 degrees. The flap is handy against the low winter son and I don't find it makes my head sweaty. I've not tried it under my helmet yet, but it will definitely fit. It comes in one size only and it is a fraction too large for me to be snug. I'm a 58cm in normal hat sizes.
It's a good Spring Summer Autumn cap. Useful to wear under a helmet giving a peak against low sun or against rain. The fold down earflap almost covers my ears, it doesn't fully cover my ear lobes.
(For colder weather I use a hood, or my merino base layer with a built in balaclava that fully covers my ears)
Excellent bit of kit. Especially in the current weather
