Don't like the constrictive feel of a balaclava, but tired of freezing your face off? The Buff Thermal Hoodie offers the comfort of your favorite sweatshirt's hood, along with the warmth and protection of a neck gaiter or balaclava. Merino wool and Polartec fabrics work together to manage moisture and hold in heat while offering a soft, cozy feel.
- Merino wool blend fabric
- Adjustable toggles
This is a really nice hooded balaclava. I love that they is a two piece neck guard that allows to wrap behind head to make the face coverage tighter. I'm not a huge fan of the fleece hood, it looks a little cheap, but other than that it's great and gets the job done!
Great in the cold!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Warm and cozy, and most importantly, not bulky. You can pull this thing off and throw it in the pack or a pocket when you start warming up. Great purchase.
I bought this for winter hiking. Love it! It's cozy and warm! The whole face balaclava's I find uncomfortable and not very breathable. I end up with snot all over the nose portion. This allows me to cover my face but not my nose so I can use a tissue when my nose gets runny. And the second buff acts as a scarf protecting me from the wind. Perfect compromise!
