Alpinestars Open Face Balaclava
Just the ticket to keep sweat out of your helmet and eyes
Have worn this on every daily ride in 90+ weather all summer so far and it is exactly what you want if you need an absorbent, wicking layer to keep sweat out of your helmet liner. It has a cooling effect in motion and best of all, prevents bug impacts on the vulnerable strip of skin between the bottom of your chin bar and the top of your jacket collar.
Has held up great in the washing machine, there are no hotspots from the seams and best of all it keeps your hemmer clean and fresh.

I bought this to reduce wind and cold on my neck and it does exactly what it's supposed to.

Well made, good universal fit
Great fit and like the mesh material around the mouth. A great upgrade from a basic head sock.

Stylish and fits well
I got this to save the liner in my shoei from sweat and hair (after the barber). The one size fits all fit me perfectly. There is venting by the mouth area for if you choose to cover your mouth. Overall well made product. My only gripe would be that it could be a little cheaper.

Worth the money
Keeps my neck from getting too cold and makes a tighter fit between me and my helmet in turn making freeway riding much quieter

The fact that it's open face makes it the best balaclava in my opinion, if you are not riding in really cold temperatures.

Seems to be the standard
Only bought this due to recommendations from others. One size fits all fits me (58cm) just fine.

Could be better
The item is a bit oversized, the cut is not opened enough and if needed it does not cover your month (which is not supposed to anyway), however it does not stay on, and I tend to open the helmet and move it around.
I regret I did not get a full face, as this does not work very well.
Material is very good and keeps your head warm.
The fitting does not allow to cover the neck.
