This balaclava has a nose beak that can be pulled up over my nose while wearing goggles. Then it can be pulled down under my chin. Because of the design, going back and forth is not a problem. But when it is pulled up, heavy breathing is restricted so I had to cut an air hole. My Smith helmet leaks a lot of air so the thinner material on the top half was insufficient. BTW, do not get the white version than gets nasty looking after a few days

My wife and I needed something to keep our neck, face, and head warm under our helmet while snowboarding. This has worked quite well. The thin upper doesn't make my helmet uncomfortable, and the thick bottom keeps me toasty. There is plenty of length to cover my neck without worry of it getting pulled out of my jacket collar.
The only thing that could be improved is that the face hole is a little tight when I pull it below my chin. However, I am very satisfied with it so far.
