    I SOOOO wanted that Spider-Man mask hat. Instead I had a Spidey-model very similar to the one on top, with the little embroidered Spidey figure.

    I did have a ski-mask CLOSE to the Spidey one that I used to play Spidey...even in the summer, and I sweated like crazy!

    When I was in kindergarten back in '71, I called ski masks "Oooh Hats". That's b/c 2 boys in my class had them, and used to chase the girls when they wore them, screaming "OOOOH!" They were in cool colors and had rings around the eyes and mouth. I wanted one and my mom wasn't having it. Instead she bought me a plain white one similar to H but w/ the whole face out. I just rolled my eyes, the boys had the same reaction.

    It's a bit tight, and a bit faded, but I've managed to keep mine all through these years! This was the coolest ski mask ever.

    BTW, remembering these hats from back in the day, I bought one for my boy doll Danny a couple of years ago:

    Wow, nice Hedji! I'm insanely jealous.

    I still have my Spidey one (similar to "F") and a Superman one similar to "E" but with one embroidered "S" shield.

    Thanks, Chris! I'm pretty sure I had the Batman one with the pom pom, because I distinctly remember pulling the strands of yarn out one by one until they were gone.

    Another question: what did you guys call these kinds of hats as kids?

    My family called them shabagons or tabogans. I'm certain "shabogan" isn't a real word, and tabogan is of course a kind of bobsled, so I'm not sure if that's right either.

    I tend to call them "ski hats" nowadays.
