However! I was able to figure out how to make this work! Simply take the elastic loop that is dangling around your chin, and pull up and over so that it is behind your head. Presto! The adjustments should be working a bit better, and you'll look a bit more like the official product pictures shown. (I will add a photo of my solution, and likely the right way to wear it, after this review is posted.)
That aside, how is the product? Personally, I find it very warm and comfy, and I'm actually just wearing it around the house, because it is so comfy... It provides very good coverage around the top of the head, ears, and neck, and the bottom can be pulled up over the nose and mouth for extra face protection from the elements. It's made of very thick fleece, so if you suffer cold winters, this is definitely the product for you.
Now, the adjustable elastics are threaded through the top of the hood, so adjusting it tightly might be a little uncomfortable for some people. This also makes hat-wearing impossible. Well, that is, unless you want to wear your hat over the balaclava, but that would look very silly! (And, if you want to be silly, may I suggest a big sombrero?)
Overall, I consider this a 4-star product. I really do like it a lot (5 stars for me), but it's not exactly for everyone. The adjusting elastics are somewhat awkwardly placed, especially if you find them too tight in general, and the lack of accompanying images or instructions regarding how to wear it is definitely not a good thing.Read more ›
The only negative side--if you could really call it that--is that I often remove the item to discover that I have 'balaclava hair'... bits of fleece sticking to my shaved head. If you don't cut/shave your hair short, then I expect this won't be an issue for you. And if you do really mind it, you're probably too vain to being with.
As another person commented, the 'foliage' color is really a shade of blue-gray, but pretty much matches what you see in the photo. I first bought the black one, but liked it so much I bought one for my wife, and so that I could wear a different color on occasion!
