Warm with great coverage
This balaclava did an excellent job keeping me warm and out of the elements while wearing it under my helmet skiing this season. Using my goggles to cover up the face hole gave me full coverage and protection. For less severe conditions I usually just stick with my wool skull cap but this takes care of me when nature does not. I found it was long enough that it stayed tucked in under my jacket behind my neck which prevented and snow or chills from running up my neck. Be assured, this balaclava will indeed "protect ya neck"
