Makes the low 30s tolerable
I like to ride and I hate it when the weather makes doing so unpleasant, or impossible. I have some really warm winter gear - A Revit Everest Jacket and pants, heavy winter gloves, Revit socks and Sidi AdventureTouring Boots. I wear long underwear under street pants and a heavy flannel shirt.

Voila! This works. Unless it's raining hard, or all day, or the roads have ice, I'll venture out. However, my neck and cheeks were cold. I resisted a Balaclava because they feel confining, but finally went for this rather expensive Dianese version.

The only problem is it fogs up my glasses while gearing up. (You have to put it on early in the dressing process - at least that's how I've been doing it.) However, if I can get moving without running into anything the glasses clear quickly, and the Balaclava diminishes the cold enough to make riding in the low 30s, if not comfortable, tolerable. Haven't tried the 20s, yet. I think it would probably be OK for a couple of hours if it was in the 20s at the start of the trip, as long as it warmed up as the morning progressed.

I wear a size large helmet and bought the Medium Balaclava. It's slightly small, which is probably better than too large, but I wish they made a middle size between the Medium and Large.

The material is heavy and it performs as advertised. Good product, as expected from Dianese.

Awesome windstopper fabric and...
and the only complaint I have is my glasses fogged up a lot. I had to cut a hold around my nostrils to let hot air escape but now it is 100% working. Windstopper fabric is the bomb! I wear this thing when I walk my dog in the cold weather, ride in the cold weather, and just go outside in the cold weather. And i mean COLD weather! No issues with fit and finish at all. A well designed and executed balaclava. I highly HIGHLY recommend one to everyone and at least two people I know have already bought them for cold weather riding and even for warm weather mowing to keep the dust and stuff out of their faces. This is an all year all around balaclava. Don't buy cheap imitations. Buy the real deal and get this Dainese balaclava. I swear by Dainese for their leathers and now by their balaclava. I have even purchased their MAP WS Windstopper shirt to compliment this awesome balaclava and that shirt is the bomb! Well worth the $150 you'll spend. Cheers and happy warm riding!!

Amazing!
This balaclava works very well. It fits snug and doesn't come untucked during use. I wear a medium Shoei RF-1200 and the medium size balaclava fits perfectly. I was hesitant to spend $50 but I'm really glad I did now. I wish I had bought one of these earlier.

Wicked Awesome
This hood keeps the cold out. It's very comfortable to wear, no seams that dig into your face or head. It does restrict head movement (head checks) slightly, but no more than you would expect. As an added bonus, it doubles as a ninja mask that you can use to fight crime when your city needs you!

The holes at the mouth area are already ripped after 2 months of daily use
This balaclava keeps me much warmer and I'm glad I bought it.

I rode in the winter for weeks without a balaclava. I had cold freezing wind hitting my neck, and although I had a warm jacket, it was not enough. All that air flowing through my helmet, neck, I was suffering. I knew using scarfs or a t-shirt was not enough to block out the cold. So I invested in the best brand, Dainese. Was I disappointed? Not at first, until eventually the holes around my mouth area for breathing ripped. I ride everyday, I wished the quality would have held up. And it was nearly impossible for me to wear it over my nose without it fogging my glasses, so I had it pulled up to my chin only. Other than that, I was very impressed.
This balaclava blocks out plenty of air gaps that would have hit my neck and chin area without it. HOWEVER, this balaclava only works at temperatures above 40F-50F. Anything under and it does its job as best as it can, but your neck will still be cold. If you live in freezing conditions, invest in heated balaclavas.

If you get cold when you ride, you need this...
I work a graveyard shift and was cold every night on my way home in 30-40F temperatures. The wind hitting my neck and going down into my jacket just chilled me so much I almost considered not riding into work anymore until it got warmer. I also thought maybe I needed a different jacket, etc. I am so glad I bought this. I rode home tonight and I didn't get cold at all thanks to Dianese's well designed and super comfy balaclava. It does make you look like a ninja! If you don't want to look like a ninja you can just pull the head part down and wear it as a neck warmer. Well made. Blocks the wind. Keeps you warm. Fits under a helmet nicely. What more can I say? It's great.

The perfect motorcycle balaclava.
I live in Florida. Yeah yeah, "It doesn't ever get cold in Florida!" is what you are saying right now. Well, unfortunately it does get cold in the winter months. And on top of the cool weather, we still have high humidity, so the cold feels even worse than it is. So, how does this Dainese balaclava stack up?

Very well.

Slim material on the top of the head keeps my head dry, while still allowing my helmet to fit on my noggin. The fit of your helmet will vary, but you can reasonably expect whatever helmet you are wearing to be only slightly tighter. The wind blocking material is very good, no air will penetrate it, keeping you warm. I told my friends that wearing this in cold weather was like cheating, because I did not feel anything.

My complaints land where I expect most balaclavas to fail, and that is how hot air from you breathing is expelled. Unfortunately it will fog up your visor even quicker than normal. Another complaint I have is that when wearing this with a jacket, head movement becomes slightly restricted, as the material will be tight around your neck.

I would recommend this to anyone and everyone. I couldn't ride without it in the cold. It is like cheating in a game.

Dainese Balaclava
Purchased a Dainese Total Windstopper Balaclava and have tried it out for approximately a month. Constructed from very durable fabric with outstanding attention to detail on the stitching. I chose LARGE because I wanted to make sure it fit (currently wear a Size XL in Aria helmet). The fit is perfect and it blocks 100% of the drafts I would get on my neck when riding in weather below 40 degrees.

Its amazing how quality riding gear can make all the difference when the temperature drops.

I'm usually a bargain shopper trying to purchase as much on clearance or sale. Therefore, I was a little hesitant to purchase, because the price was a little higher than I initially wanted to spend. But after that first 40 degree ride, I'm not sure how I managed all these years without.

I highly recommend.

Nice lightweight wind protection from Dianese.
Great product, looks awesome, and super tight quality, as expected from Dianese. Order with confidence, and get a size smaller, it stretches! Prevents airflow as described, I'd call this a mid-range cold weather piece, better for light winter days. Anything colder than 40 degrees and I'd go for something heavier duty. Love it!

All my other Balaclava's have been too short in the neck area which defeats part of the purpose. This one seems to drape over the shoulders and down the front/back like a bib.

Wanted to block the cold wind from my helmet
David A on Mar 7, 2015
This balaclava is high quality. It protects me from most of the cold wind and I say most because the air still enters the helmet in the same spots it usually would. When the weather is really cold your head may still get somewhat cold but you don't get the crazy cold draft on your head and chest with this unit on.
Helmet slips on easily and the balaclava stays on after removing the helmet.

Omesh A on Dec 31, 2014
I've had one for two years and it's been my best friend for cold weather riding. I recently lost it on the freeway after failing to secure it correctly to my bike and riding without it has been a lesson in discomfort. I need this. Badly.

Need something to replace my fleece scarf which is to bulky but works ok. Bounced around for awhile and landed on this one should work out good.
Caleb O on Dec 9, 2014
I ride in St. Louis, MO where winters get frigid and the winds can get fairly strong and intolerable when coupled with the cold temperatures and humid conditions. The hope is that the wind blocking design will perform as advertised around my neck and chin.
David S on Dec 2, 2014
I'm a long-time, satisfied customer of Revzilla. I chose this product because I like to ride in cold weather - sub 30s, but have had inadequate neck and head protection from the cold. I have a pair of Dainese gloves and am impressed with the quality. I was undecided between medium and large. I went with medium and hope it fits, but if not, Revzilla has a great exchange policy.

I originally bought a Dainese Total WS EVO Balaclava in a large size. This balaclava is excellent in quality, and totally blocks the wind and holds in warmth very well. I bought a medium as well for a bit snugger fit if I want it.

Hi, My head size 56cm and wearing SM helmet, which size will fit my head?

Thanks
Mohamad E on Sep 4, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I purchased a large, which is the size of my helmet. The head fit ok except around the face was very loose and baggy, When trying to put on the helmet it was very hard to keep in place. I ended up not using it. I would go a size smaller than normal.
How tight is it for those with a large nose?
A C on Sep 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have an average nose, and a pretty average sized head (Arai medium, Shoei Large, HJC medium) and the part that goes over your face is fairly loose, which is not a problem under a helmet. With a large nose, it would probably fit pretty good.
Would a large Dianese Balaclava be too big for someone who usually wears Medium Helmuts?
A shopper on Nov 8, 2012
BEST ANSWER: I ordered a LG and wear a LG Arai helmet, it fit perfectly for me.
