I tried a couple of these Balaclavas at this price and lower, and found this one to be the best, costing a bit more but at 0 degrees comfort is more a concern than a couple dollars. I have a large head and the X-Large fits me well, not just around my jug but around the face, no sagging as stated in the sales info here. This brand also runs long in the neck so there is no coverage gap there in a hoodless jacket. Would buy another and may do so before next winter.

I had an accident on skiing and couldn't call anyone, my phone and my GPS camera were both frozen solid. This thing kept me warm in subzero temperature for hours, don't want to even think what would happen if I didn't have it. The material is soft and have a nice feel. The shape is very comfortable and nicely hugs the face without pressure. 5 star Recommendation

I average 6,000 miles a year on my road bike, and that includes riding throughout the winter. I'm not a fanatic about it, but if it's 32 degrees or warmer I'll be on my bike. That means wearing something to keep my head warm.

This one-piece fleece balaclava does a nice job of keeping the cold out and the warm in, as well as wicking away moisture. The single opening fits close enough to my face to keep the wind out, yet not so tight that I can't also were my glasses. And the neck extends long enough to tuck inside my jacket for maximum warmth. I bought the L/XL and it fits great.

The care instructions read: Machine wash cold, gentle cycle. Do not bleach, do not wring out. Dry flat. [Note: I put mine in the dryer and have had no issues with that.] Great quality at a great price. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

I bought this to run in winter time ,but when you start running and your body and head starts warming up the balaclava starts to get damp,and it makes it difficult to breath. Otherwise if you need a balaclava to keep you warm .while doing lite work outside this is a 5 star balaclava.thank you.

Took it to Alaska to commercial fish in freezing weather. My face and head were very warm. Glad I had it with me on my trip.

In Amazon fashion, this product arrived quickly and was exactly as described. Furthermore, it accomplished what it was designed to do. The only issue I had was one that I did not consider prior to purchase and did not realize before use. I purchased the balaclava to stay warm while riding my motorcycle in cold weather. However, I ride with a full-face modular helmet. My helmet was a bit tight while wearing the balaclava, but nothing uncomfortable. My issue occurred during my first cold-weather ride. Whether covered or uncovered with the balaclava, the difference between the temp of my breathe and that outside of my shield caused an immediate fog of condensation, blocking my vision. This occurred even when I opened the vents to allow additional air circulation in my helmet. This should be cleared by an anti-fog product and is no fault of the item. I would recommend this product to others.

I like the fleece, it is very helpful while riding my Harley Davidson during cool weather. I plan on making other purchases. I also appreciate the quick delivery.

I bought two of these and while they were inexpensive and sized correctly for a large head, they do not hold up well. One of them developed a small tear after only two washings in a HE washer, while the stitching is coming loose on the other. They are very comfortable and inexpensive, but they will not last through a lot of heavy use. I would recommend washing them by hand if you buy them.

Given the price this may be expected or OK.

I got this item because I ride my bike to school and work whenever I can to save on gas and I wanted to have a spare balaclava. Unfortunately this item was almost out of stock so sizes were limited as was time to decide whether or not to chance the L/XL size. Needless to say I bought it and the item came in a timely manner (didn't even take 4 business days or maybe just 4 days in total). After I opened the item I noticed automatically how soft the material is. Upon trying it on the L/XL size is a little loose but near beggars can't be choosers.

The balaclava does wear well despite the size issue. It always feels incredibly comfortable with its material. However, I did find it a little difficult to breathe with my nose covered by it. But what can you expect with polyester. Overall, this is a good product for the price; it is just a shame that there weren't more in stock when I looked.
