Ahhhh the balaclava...
What can I say...this is one of my favorite pieces of winter gear. Definitley keeps your head, neck and face warm and toasty. A very functional piece of clothing and dries quickly. I never go on a winter hike or backpacking trip without it. And all this warm goodness only weighs 1.5 ounces! NICE!
Warm and Soft
Got this in white, and recently used it up in Mammoth during a major snowstorm. Like another reviewer commented, the face hole is a bit large, but is super adaptable. When I would get too hot, I could pull it down under my chin. When I was super cold, I could hike it up right next to my goggles. I've owned several neoprene Balaclavas and this is by far the warmest. The only downside is that if you are in a downpour of wet snow, the fleece can get kind of wet and cold on the outside. It still seemed to stay toasty warm on the inside (which is what really matters, right?)
Good for really cold days
I like this balaclava, but I think I need to downgrade to just a gaiter. This thing is just too hot for me.
I have not tried this out on the slopes. That's because it didn't fit right and I returned it. The eye hole was not cut evenly. Plus, it was too large for my face. Maybe it's meant for men only, but it is definitely not "one size fits all". It also left lumps on top of my head because the cut/fit aren't right.
ya so this Bala is preety rad the material is farily thick and keeps me wicked warm well my face and neck :P the face hole i found is just slightly big but the plus to this is its very adaptable to diffrenet size faces and goggles when compared to a lot of other bala's out there deffenetly my fav ive used
Hey, Love the white. What's the washing...
Hey, Love the white. What's the washing criteria?
It's polyester fleece, so no bleach. Warm wash, air dry or low dryer heat and you'll be good.
â Great Item! â
These are great!
Prior to purchasing these, I purchased balaclavas from another website and the day I got them- they were returned, very bad quality (and was more $)! But these are great! You can breathe with these on, they are comfortable and not restricting. Both my husband and I love these and wear these when we go snowmobiling in Minnesota and we stay very warm and comfortable!
I would very much recommend these!
This is the...
Best Ever Balaclava I have ever worn. This was my best friend in the Alps last season. Now i'm back for another! Cheers
