Upgrade

Familiarity:I've used it several times

I finally decided to upgrade to an actual balaclava after going all season with just a tube neck gaiter and it was a fantastic idea. I love being able to push this down past my chin when I don't need my mouth covered. It's comfortable too and handles a face full of powder without freezing to my hair. My only complaint is that it smells a little weird brand new, not really a bad smell as it can be ignored, but it was weird enough that I noticed wearing it the first few times.

It is 100% machine wash and dryable if need be!

Great!

This gets the job done. It's lightweight and fitting. No room for messing balaclaves.

Best Balaclava

This balaclava is comfortable, warm and I love the feel of the material. It does not freeze like the other brands i've used. I can wear it comfortably with my helmet and the fit is perfect.

Warmest Balaclava

Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

This is now an essential part of my freezing cold weather kit. There is no better cold weather balaclava on the market. You can tell it was designed for extreme temps, as it has kept my head and face warm through some of coldest tours of my life (I'm talking -20 degrees F at 5 in the morning cold). While it would not be my choice for a hot spring day, in the cold weather this cannot be beat. Classic Blackstrap style with ultimate functionality.

Best for everything!

Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

Love using it in the winter. Even more recently, I used it on a sunrise hike this fall and it kept my head and ears super warm. Well worth the buy for how warm and durable these masks are, considering I’ve worn the same one nearly every day riding last winter.

Good First Impression

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

Went up to Brighton for the first time and never noticed my head get cold or damp. I would say this did it's job well. Also didn't scratch or pull on any face fuzz. Easy to pull down.

Excellent Fit

Familiarity:I've used it several times

This balaclava has one of the best fits Ive tried and can easily be pulled over your face or under your chin without too much trouble at all. Warm material kept my brain nice and toasty.

Warm and Versatile

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

This balaclava is a set up from the original BlackStrap printed ones. It's thicker and warmer and has wool blended in to it. I especially like how it can easily and quickly slip under or over the chin for breathability, and when under the chin, it doesn't feel like it's too tight or suffocating. Love this!

Tech Specs don't mention wool. Just sayin'.

The BlackStrap rep commented on another post of mine reviewing their printed balaclava and said this one has a wool blend for added warmth.

It is actually a proprietary blend of Nylon, elastane and cashmere.

Great for cold ski days!

I've never owned a buff or mask that doesn't freeze up, until I acquired this little gem. The dual layers are great at wicking moisture and preventing freezing. The expedition weight is quite warm but not too bulky to work with a helmet. Great product overall!

Ninja mask

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

Fits comfortably under my helmet, cant wait to use it this winter. Has an opening for headphones if you use them while ski/snowboarding which is nice.

Thanks Brad for the great feedback. Hope we earned 5 Stars

What is the difference between this one and the expedition version and the regular version? Do either of them have a "hard mouth"?
