Cortech Journey ST Balaclava
Does the job
This thing really makes a really cold and misrable morning ride bearable. It's warm, but it doesn't suffocate. It's also really thin so it won't mess up the fitment of your helmet. My only complaint was that I wish they had sizing instead of "one size fits all." The material is very stretchy so as you put your helmet on, it moves out of place. But, once I have it on right, it works great.

Good helmet liner, little else
Good light weight liner, but offers little, if any protection from wind chill or rain.

Good in overall
The balaclava is very good the material is soft and very comfortable when wearing. The only con is the lack o fabric to cover properly the neck.
I always try to pull it inside my second layer but, as I move my head, it comes off and I have the wind on my neck.
Turned out this one is OK when it's hot, but on cooler days, I prefer the old one, that protects my neck better from the wind.

Great basic thin balaclava
I wanted a summer balaclava that added no heat, so I took a chance on this one. It is excellent, the material is very thin but soft and seems durable.
Fit: This seems custom shaped for my head (long oval, Large) and it is not tight on me, so keep that in mind if you have a very small head.
Neck - the neck portion is not really long enough to secure on the chest. It just barely covers below the neck, if that is important to you.
Seams - the joined seams are fine but the seam on the eye opening is a little thicker. I wish someone could invent a zero-thickness opening seam. It can cause pressure marks if it is under your helmet padding.
Logo - the white logo rubbed off within 2 wears. No big deal, looks better to me without it.
Made in - China, of course.

Wicks Away Sweat
I was looking for a balaclava specifically for the summer and I found it here. It works really well and protects my helmet from all my sweat. Its also really thin and the air flow is great!
My complaint is that its a one size fits all deal. I really wish it was smaller and more snug. It shifts when I pull my helmet on but its easy to fix and can be avoided if I do it just right. But for the price, its definitely worth it. Especially if your needs are like mine and you want a summer balaclava to wick away sweat. There aren't many out there and this one is your best bet. I recommend.
