SUPER warm

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is a great balaclava and is super warm - probably too warm, at least for the conditions that I used it in. A little too thick to put under a helmet. Inner lining is very soft - very nice when it gets cold and you get some windburn - gentle on your chin.
