Very high quality and thin polartec classic micro fleece balaclava. Have been looking for one without the center seam right in the middle of the forehead. My helmets are a tight fit in front and it's uncomfortable wearing these things, but necessary. I don't have to look like a dope with a center seam embossed into my forehead when I take it off in public or with my family. Yeah!
This product is as described and the best one I've owned in all the years of riding. It is thin, so buy the thicker model if you have room and need more warmth. DS
Until I recieved the product, I was concerned that my helmet wouldn't fit right while wearing the balaclava, as my helmet fits tightly anyway. As soon as I recieved it, I immediately put it on and then tried my helmet over it. My helmet still fit!! I am totaly pleased with the product and will recommend it to all my biker friends.
One review said this can be pulled down over the mouth. Wrong! The face/eye opening is tiny. It's barely big enough for the eyes let alone being able to pull down over the nose or mouth. It's being returned.
This balaclava fits small so I have a skewed opinion of it. Seems to fit the top part of the head fine and is long enough, but the part that covers your nose and mouth are oppressively tight. It literally crushes your nose and makes it difficult to breath out of your mouth at times. Taking it off is a whole other ordeal as it clings to your head and takes real effort to get it off.
For perspective, my head isn't overly large (XL) and all other balaclavas that I've had of the same size fit decent, this one simply does not.
The material is fairly comfortable but you sweat like a champ so it'll get wet quickly, even in 0 degree temps.
Overall, can't say I'd recommend this to much of anyone.
