    So far so sick

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've been on the market for a balaclava like this for a while, and it's pretty much everything I could hope for. The fabric is soft against the skin, and it is easy to pull the buff up over your nose once it gets super bitter on the mountain. Otherwise it sits comfortably just below your bottom lip, and protects most of the ski on your face from sun/wind burn. I wear a beanie on my head still, the mask itself isn't extremely insulated. However, I don't have much padding or insulation in my helmet to begin with, so if you have a warmer helmet, you probably don't need a beanie in addition.

    Frostbite Forgotten

      I have been looking for a simple but effective face mask to prevent my nose from getting frostbitten; It's not cute to have a purple dot on the end of your nose, ask me how i know. This mask is a perfect all around item, not too thick, not too thin, nice n' stretchy, plus the unique design of the BS balaclava means its more comfortable then other brands when adjusting the coverage. The print is pretty spot on, the colors look like the ones pictured on the site and nothing looks out of place.

      For me the biggest problem is my nose, its huge, so i need something that's not too tight but also prevents total exposure to the elements. This balaclava is a little tight around the tip but as i wear it more it should conform to my face and prevent the pesky purple nose,

      I will update my reviews to include some big storm riding performance and how it preforms in the super cold temperatures so stay posted.

      This Has Everything

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      I tried a few balaclava's before finding this one that I like. I can switch between cold to hot while skiing in an instant, and I like how this has the option to pull up over your face (and stay put), but can pull down under the chin when you need to suck air on tough runs. My only complaint is that it doesn't have any wool in it which would make it warmer and drier. But the design and prints supersede the lack of wool detail. Highly recommend. Great buy.

      Brandi the Hood is more of your all-weather 95% of the season type of piece. If you are looking for a warmer BlackStrap option check out the Expedition series of the Hood. Same great functionality maximum warmth.

      Thanks for the great feedback.

      Best one I've found

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      This is the best balaclava because:
      it stays in place - either covering my face or tucked below my chin
      it doesn't freeze
      its soft and thin but still warm (not as warm as a hardshell of course, you'll feel high winds)
      the designs are more stylish than standard black
      one size isn't too big for my small noggin

      5/5 Faceshield

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size

      This is by all means a pretty standard balaclava with two really nice features that turn it from average to perfect. The first feature is that the liner inside the balaclava is smooth, slightly insulated, and never noticeable when riding. The second is the adjustable mouth/nose cover that you can pull down into a chin buff strap to talk to friends or breath without restriction. I pull this thing up and down all day depending on the situation. This one hinge is a lifesaver and makes this balaclava super worth it.

      I spent a lot of time shopping around for a good balaclava and stumbled across this one. Wore it out on the slopes in 5 to 60 degree F weather and it worked well the whole time. Thin material doesn't get hot but keeps the chill out even when its freezing cold outside. Perfect all temp balaclava. You won't be disappointed and they have some pretty dope colors to choose from. You can always add a warm hat over the balaclava and under your helmet too if needed since it is so low profile.

      Stylish functionality!

      US made, UPF 55, and super comfortable, what else can you ask for? These things are amazing and the prints stand out on the slopes! Pick one up and keep that chin warm the next time you hit the ski slopes!

      Ballin Bala Clava

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      This thing is awesome. The material is nice and stretchy. It's designed so that you don't pull on the top of the balaclava when the face mask is lowered. It's a great US made product!

      This is a beautiful thing. It's the kind of mask where you can drink at least six 40oz'z, make some pizza rolls topped with wasabi and a side of raw onion (drunk) Wake up the next day, without brushing your teeth, vomit, then decided to go skiing and get compliments about your breath smelling so fresh and so clean, clean. Due to the incredible microfiber lining that is. Overall this puppy is a must buy. You can wear it in the warm weather to conceal your identity from your ex who is out for blood. Or slap it on when it's 10 degrees and as cold as your mama's cooking. I rock the "Overcast" style even when it's sunny AYYYYYY.
      Buy it, peace out

      Best Ever

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I don't know why I waited so long to get one of these. This is the first balaclava that doesn't freeze that I have owned. The two part system is great for when you don't want your face covered. You can pull the front down and it doesn't affect the rest of the hood. The material is buttery and smooth! I loved this so much I bought on for my boyfriend so he could experience it too! The only criticism I would have is that on really cold/windy days it won't keep you super warm. The material is mid-weight.
