Comfortable balaclava, properly designed. 13/04/2018
I have sensitive facial skin which doesn't like cold, and liked the two-eyehole balaclava design (the original version, coded FHSAS) so much I bought three!
Off the shelf, there's probably no better balaclava on the market than this one. Only the eyes are exposed, the neck in particular is very long so it stays perfectly seated in place without pulling out of the collar of my Transpire fleece 1-piece, and it's so snug that it moves with my head like a second skin. Very very warm, and easy to breathe through - just how a balaclava should be.
I wear mine for riding - it fits under my jockey helmet with no trouble at all. For quad biking it fits under a full-face helmet perfectly and helps keep the helmet lining clean. Well worth the money.
So comfortable that I sometimes forget I'm wearing it - not good if visiting the shops or the bank!
