Let me start off by saying that i have a big noggin. My head is size 25 1/2 inch around which equates to an 8 hat size. This is typically a size 2xl hat. This balaclava is not even tight on my head (good for me, probably bad for most people). Also, the wool is a fine type material and not super heavy, which is just what i was looking for. I bought this specifically for camping and would wear a heavier 100% wool watch cap on top (DLA 835-2672-9201 , RN 93084). My suggestion is, if you have a large heard, and need a good balaclava, this will do.

This is nice wool and it's VERY warm although it's very thin! My only problem with it is that it's HUGE. I think they should make more than one size. I bought this for my husband who works outdoors and after very little it's all stretched out and he has to keep readjusting it (causing more stretching). I tried washing it in hot/cold and now it has pilling all over it. I think I'll try to sew it to make it smaller just so he can get some use out of it.

I bought this item to keep my face and ears warm while bicycling to work everyday in Kansas City. So far, so good. In temperatures down to 24 F it has kept me warm. Also, because of the merino wool, moisture does not build up underneath from my breathing. But the heat from your breath keeps you warm, while the moisture is wicked away. My only complaint is that it would be nice to have different sizes. It's just a tad annoying to situate it just right on your face and under your helmet being not quite snug.

Overall, highly recommend as part of your winter riding gear.

Makes a difference on those below 30 degree days (above too!!!) Particularly effective on the chin and neck under your helmet. Increases fogging if helmet not well vented, but permits operating your bike in the colder temps...

So far Minus33 is the only Merino wool that I have worn (except socks) and it doesn't feel like wool at all. I forget that I even put it on. Montana at minus 7% F was the proof for me. No more cheap long-johns from wal-mart for this Florida boy.

I've worn this twice, during my cycling trips so far, and it keeps me warm. It is stretch fit, and just feels perfect. It creates no bunch up under my helmet, so the helmet still works, and it keeps particulates and the cold wind out of my lungs. I would rate this 6, if i could.

I recently took a trip to Gambell, a small Native village on St. Lawrence Island in the middle of the Bering Sea. It was COLD. I wore this Balaclava under my hat, drawing it up over my mouth and nose when the wind was blowing.

Despite it being 100% wool, I was able to toss this into the washer and dryer, and it came out fine. Great product.

I have a few options for covering my face. I work outside all day in Michigan weather. This has been my favorite and most worn. I want at least two.. May have to layer them in below zero weather.

I like how this can be rolled up and used at a stocking cap, or the face part can be pulled down below the chin. Very versatile. Wool beats fleece or neoprene any day. Does not stink and keeps you warm even when wet. Scientific studies show wool is the best fabric for preventing hypothermia. Why would anyone pay double the price for a brand that spends all their money on marketing, then gives you a product made from common polyester. No amount of UA, Columbia, or Nike marketing can negate the fact that it is just regular old synthetic fabric with a pretty logo. Stick to 100% merino wool and you'll never use anything else.

Not sure, since this is my first balaclava since probably grade school (well, wool ski masks), and it works great as an underlayer for my arctic hat, and an overlayer for my neck gaiter. It stretches quite a bit and doesn't hold it's shape, so when I pull it down, or stretch it a bit, I have a hard time keeping it above/on my nose. Otherwise, it works as expected, and is a good value.
