The overall look of the scarf is great. The material may look thin, but it is perfect for regulating heat. The texture is quite soft but clearly well made. I've worn this scarf on a warmer Florida day as well as on a cooler windy day and in both instances it was great. The thinness of the scarf allows for excess heat to leave, plus with the size of it, it can be loosened and still look good. The scarf is solid as well. It also makes for a nice sash to go under a belt, again due to its size.
