Bought one for my dad, now he owns four.

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift

I bought this for my dad, who lives in a particularly snowy part of New England. He wears it snow-blowing his driveway (5/8th of a mile through the woods) and working around his 17 acres. He LOVES it... He went out and bought a few more so he could always have a clean one ready to go. It was the sort of product where my dad didn't realize how badly he needed a product like this until he used it.

Warm

This thing really takes the edge off those cold and windy days. Has good coverage and has been durable. I bought a Medium and it fits a little more snug than I would prefer and I have a small head.

Comfy and Warm

I have always wanted one of these and finally decided on this one from North Face. This is a great product. I have used it in temps in the teens and single digits along with 15mph wind and had no problems with keeping warm. It kept my head, face, and neck nice and cozy. It is a snug fit, but it helps keeps you warm.

Quality

good insurance to keep in the pack for when the weather turns real nasty. Performs well in a strong cold wind

Just as those waxing eloquently before me, this piece of gear is just what the doctor ordered while I walk McDuff in sub-freezing temperatures with the wind bearing down me in my Georgia mountaintop community. A little on the pricey side, but you've got to pay for this kind of quality. I noticed there was writing on the tag indicating TNF sells this thing in Russia. My guess is it's pretty effective in Siberia too...

Excelent Balaclava

Just wore this for the first time last weekend in temps of upper 20's to lower 30's. Worked like a charm, no hat needed, ears toasty and no problem hearing. It's nice and soft and stretchy which made it easy to pull down below my chin too. I wear L for a helmet, when I wear a helmet and this fit snugly but not tight. Could do without that stupid logo blazing on the forehead but I'll cope..

Great for Snow Removal in Iowa Winter!

I bought this balaclava just before Christmas this Winter and have been loving it. We've had a cold and snow-filled winter in Iowa and it's done a fantastic job keeping me warm and dry while blowing snow or just shoveling. The neck goes just far enough down into my coat to ensure my neck doesn't get cold at all. The face opening is just large enough to not impede vision while still keeping you warm. It also breathes really well!

Great Balaclava!

I don't care how dumb my wife thinks it looks when I wear it around the house (it's just so soft), this thing performs really well. I wore this on summit day on Kilimanjaro (with a heavy fleece cap on top), and I was really happy with it. It also performed well on cold days going to work (no more frozen snot). The material is great and retains its elasticity when you pull it under your chin or around your neck to wear it like a neck gaiter.

Excellent in very cold weather

I will not go to the hill without this baclava in my ski bag. Fit great if you keep it over nose and mouth.

North Face Balaclava

The North Face Powerstretch Balaclava is one of my best buys so far this season. Comfortable, affordable, very warm, and very useful for those days that are especially cold. On those days I don't leave home without it.

The HOLY Grail of Balaclavas

If it is cold out and you are rippin this is a must! Best I have ever worn!!

Good stuff

I picked up my North Face balaclava during the season last year. Very comfortable. Keeps your mug warm on those nasty windy days and you can roll it up into a silly-looking beanie or poke your head through the facehole like a gaiter when it gets too warm. :)

I love this Balaclava

I love this balaclava, it keeps you warm and it still lets my head breath. It also can be rolled up on your head and makes a great beenie as well!

Good but not great for me

I recently purchased the powerstretch balaclava. It works very well, but if you are tall like me then there isn’t enough material at the bottom to keep your neck completely insulated. Other than that it is a great buy!!!

Keeps my head from falling off..

As good as it gets. It was worn by my Alaskan Malamute in cold conditions and I never heard any complains. Now I wear it myself and I love it, it even keeps the wind on a distance.
