- Q & A
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
I bought this for my nephew who is in the cold Minnesota winter. He wears this to the bus, on the playground, and pretty much any time he is outside. He loves it and it keeps his face warm. He will layer this with a beenie or just under his jacket hood.
Light weight helmet liner
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This is a silkweight helmet liner, and it's great for "normal" ski conditions. Wicks well, protects from wind chill under the helmet on on the face without bulk. It does fit well under helmets, except that it moves around (bunches) a bit. My boys mostly like it, but now it has to be really cold (stinging wind chill) for them to want to wear it because it doesn't stay in place easily. The material shifts around, and it gets in their way. They can't keep it out of their eyes, get it set up right around the ski goggles on their own (they are 8 & 9 now, so gearing up themselves is typical). Some days they don't want the coverage over their mouths and noses, and this is not adjustable. It is a full face cover with a fairly small cut out just for eyes. Material is thin enough to breath easily through over the mouth, but can get icy from moisture. It's still good on cold days, but it's not an all-in-one item that is flexible for multiple conditions.
I'm looking for separate pieces now - a lightweight beanie, and maybe an airhole bandana style gaitor. I'd still recommend this item, it's well made, holds up well (we've been using the same ones for three ski seasons now), but I would personally buy something like this with a larger face hole just for really cold days.
Biggest complaint: "it's in my eyes again."
Best use - protects delicate skin from wind chill, keeps heads warm and dry/comfortable under helmets. Good for layering under a warmer neck only gator, helmet, etc. as a baselayer.
My Son Loves this
This is a thin but very warm headliner that fits well under a helmet. My son loves it!
I was looking for something thicker.
