Maybe I bought the wrong thing
I was looking for a more durable balaclava for the winter. I was unimpressed by this one. It is very loose around the face. I constantly have to readjust it because it would slip down into my helmet. I don't even think it was that warm. I used it to go under my motorcycle helmet for fall and winter riding.

Soft and toasty
This thing feels great caudaling your head. It is very warm and has a good goggle sized opening around your eyes. However it runs a little small. I would say size up from what you would expect to buy. Bought a size S/M and my husband and i have average size heads and its a tad tight. Good for staying in place, however might want to consider going a size up to avoid being smothered.

Warm and practical.
I use this skiing, biking, mountaineering. It's warm, fits under a helmet and is durable. I recommend this product.

Does the job but there are better balaclavas. I have trouble keeping it around my face while I have a helmet on, bunches up a lot

Keepin My Face Toasty
I've used this now for two months of Utah winter for Snowboarding, Snowmobiling, Sledding, and ice fishing. Its been great for all activities and more. Its breathable and has kept my face toasty warm on those freezing cold days. Using it for snowmobiling is a must, I've ridden in temps as low as 5 degrees at night going 25-30 mph on a snowmobile and my face was great. My only complaint is that it does fit a bit tight in the neck area. I do have a large neck but it would be nice if there was a little more room. I usually wear a size 7 3/8 hat and have a 17 1/12 inch neck and I got the L/XL and it fits snug but comfortably.

I wanted this to work fabulously. I ski in Colorado in a range of temperatures, but finally gave up on this one after this weekend. It was an "all on" weekend including this for my face. I felt like i could not breathe, you cannot move the nose/mouth part down without feeling like I was going to choke, and there is not a place for condensation to escape. That had to be the worst, mask was frozen on the outside (and inside) making it INCREDIBLY cold all the way around. Tried the Norrona balaclava the next day and WOW...SOOOO MUCH BETTER. Can bring down front when you get hot without choking, you can get fresh air, and even at 7 degrees, it was warm and toasty. Sorry, Arc,teryx, this one has to be returned.

I mainly use this balaclava for snowmobiling and can't ride without it. The polartec power stretch fabric is mid to heavyweight, breathes/wicks moisture really well and dries super quick. It can be worn around your neck or up over the mouth and nose for full coverage wind protection. The fabric durability is excellent for power shield. I'm always sliding my helmet on/off and it shows no signs of wear after a full season of riding.
