We have HARSH winter weather in the Midwest. We also have a large family, so we need warm, durable winter gear for all of us.
Pleasantly surprised that the material is thicker than expected. Nice neutral color. High quality stitch. Will keep me warm in the mountains. Got the 2 pack in case one gets dirty on the same trip. Slight middle pinch up in design helps cover the nose by caving the fabric in. Black piece in front is made of smooth, easy-to-clean material. Mouth covering right below the nose is made of softer, more breathable fabric. Bottom wrap stays up only because of thick fabric weight, otherwise it's fairly loose (not enough to use on its own during a pandemic if unable to socially distance). From the picture it looks like the hood would cover the forehead. I wish the hood came down a bit more (it only covers up to my hairline and I have a relatively small head), but I was planning on wearing a beanie under it anyway. TIP: Make sure you wear a scarf/nose/mouth piece under the balaclava to keep warm since it's more of outerwear than innerwear.
I bought this in preparation for winter, and didn't know that we were getting snow yesterday. Good old October making us think. The Balaclava Ski Mask is super comfortable and able to be adjusted to have the top on or not. Plenty of coverage for the neck, and keeps you warm. I'm able to breathe easy through it, as well, which is sometimes hard with other ones. I love the colors, and can't wait to enjoy it more during this cold. One thing that I wish it had, was a tag with washing instructions, etc. There's nothing on there to let you know how it needs to be cleaned, but that's the only negative thing. Otherwise, it is perfect.
This ski mask is lightweight but provides good coverage. The sewing seems to be good quality that will last for many seasons. It is also stylish in that the fabric has a subtle, unisex black and charcoal grey design. I have a big head and a lot of hair and I was easily able to stretch the material to comfortably fit on my head because it stretches very well. This is a really nice layering piece that I look forward to using both for walking around this winter and for winter sports.
I wish the top half was removable, other than that I think it'll be great on the slopes. I love that there is a little vent over the mouth so moisture doesn't build up. I haven't been able to use it yet, but will update once I do.
Perfect for Fall Motorcycle rides! My husband loves the new balaclava mask! It fits perfectly and is very comfortable.
Excellent material, works great for riding motorcycle or the now pandemic of covid.
My husband used it when it was 17 outside, he said it was PERFECT. Kept his cheeks and most importantly to him, his ears warm.
