Face winter winds head on.
When winter winds howl, pelting your face with ice and snow, protect yourself with the Columbia Trail Summit Balaclava. Omni-Heat technology provides heat retention while allowing the fabric to breathe so you don't risk being smothered by your balaclava.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
I'll start with what I liked. The touch and feel of the fabric felt good, and I imagined that putting it through its paces through a full day of boarding, the clava would feel comfortable and keep me warm. I liked the fact that the neck bib area extended really far down so you could tuck it into your jacket and create a better seal against the cold air.
What did not work out for me was the restrictiveness of the mouth cover. When I get back into the lodge for lunch or a break, I want to be able to pull down the mouth portion of the mask, but because there are no flexible or elastic seams, trying to pull down the mask down past your chin is a real chore. I ended up returning this product for this reason.
The picture looks like there is mesh...
The picture looks like there is mesh covering the eyes. Is this correct?
There is no mesh covering the eyes. The grey mesh that you appear to see is from the inside of the balaclava. The inside has a very reflective metallic surface.
