Fit was not as expected and makes it a non-starter With this item, fit is very important to function and I didn't feel that fit considered several things. Breath deflector too large, interferes with my Arai Signet-q helmet, material on top is too thick so putting on helmet stretches it, eye cutout is too narrow so it affects your peripheral vision, If i wanted to stay warm and didn't wear a helmet, this might work well, using it with a helmet doesn't work for me though.

So Close ! Product is great EXCEPT...I wear glasses. The eye opening is really too small in both directions. Width wise it has to stretch to get around glasses and that pulls it closed in the height direction. If they would just make the opening an 1" wider and the height an 1" taller it would be great. I plan to have mine altered to work. Other than that it works well and is well made. It does a good job at reducing wind chill. If the opening was larger I would rate this at least a 4 if not a 4.5....a 5 out of me on anything is not happening. November 3, 2014
Great Product I got this mostly for plowing snow and ATV riding in the cold. The breath box is awesome. It's great to be able to breathe fresh air. It also tempers the cold air in the breath box so that it's a little warmer than the outside air is. This is a product that definitely lives up to the old saying that you get what you pay for. I recommend this product. March 3, 2014
Nice Product works great...slight issue with air channel collapsing but not completely closed off...moves the air out of your helmet nicely and keeps your neck/face warm...would recommend to others for sure February 17, 2014
Very warm. Rode this weekend and the weather was cold. This balaclava is worth every cent. The area around the mouth let's you breathe while keeping cold out. January 7, 2014
Keeps you warm, but eye opening too small This product keeps you warm and prevents fogging/moisture build up on your visor. Depending on the style helmet you use, the breath opening could become an air scoop. The eye opening was a big issue for me initially, it is cut close to the sides of my eyes and has thick piping that cut into my peripheral vision totally creating an unsafe situation for me in urban traffic. I corrected the vision issue by tugging and stretching the opening, but truly feel it should be made wider November 10, 2013
Great Concept, but... I bought this balaclava looking forward to the touted anti-fogging properties as I don't have a pin lock visor and ride year round. I tried it on in the house and the fit was good and comfortable. Then I put my helmet on. The "duckbill" completely collapsed inside the chin bar of the helmet, and the previously acceptable seal over the bridge of my nose became wrinkled and pulled down to the tip of my nose. I wear an Akuma helmet which I think has a decent amount of space between my chin/nose and the front of the helmet, but even after removing the small mesh wind deflector from under the chin of the helmet, the "duckbill" completely collapsed making the hood worthless. There is a plastic stiffener inside the "duckbill" that is supposed to keep the breath box from collapsing. But it is so pronounced that there is no way that I can see it fitting under any full face helmet. After closing the visor on my helmet, even in the living room, it immediately began to fog up, and I could feel my breath coming back at my eyes as well. I wear clear glasses under my helmet so I can crack the visor, and both (visor and glasses) were fogging up in the house, so I would imagine its even worse on the bike. I can't imagine this working for any full face helmet, and it would seem to be unnecessary on an open face or mx style helmet. Very disappointed, but I can't find my packaging, so I guess i'm stuck with a very expensive hood that I can't use. Sorry the photos are rotated. November 8, 2013
product has great features and fit product is great, it allows me to ride without a no-fog mask which is much more comfortable. April 8, 2013

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Peggy W: My son wanted this for his father for Christmas. Thought this would provide additional warmth for the snowmobile season. Nov 19, 2014
paul s: I am a "fat bike" commuter in Minnesota 365 days a year. I bike in -21 below zero weather with wind chills as low as -50 below zero. I have "macgyver'd" my own face mask the last two years, thought I would give this a try. There is a growing community of commuters riding "fat bikes" year 'round, you may consider expanding product into that new market. Nov 14, 2014
Thomas S: Review and video lead me to believe this will be a good balaclava for my MX style snowmobile helmet. Oct 31, 2014
Martin B: Looks like a good choice to protect against the onset of the Wisconsin winter. Oct 21, 2014
Michael H: It gets cold in PA and last year my face froze without one. So I got the best one you sell! Oct 11, 2014
Henry C: I live in Alaska where the temperatures in the winter can drop below 0. When this happens it could cost you dearly. I like the breather box and the long wind block skirt Dec 31, 2013
Alvin H: Looking for extra warmth while using motocross helmet in very cold weather with 509 goggles. I am hoping that I can use product below 0 Fahrenheit. By the way I very much like the design of your web site and the information available on various products. Dec 4, 2013
Dimitry K asked: I ride with glasses on. Based on what appears to be a fairly narrow opening, how well does this fit if there are glasses and helmet in place? Nov 28, 2013

Loughton S: I've noticed that my glasses tend to fog up more when using this face mask. After pulling it on, put on your glasses and push the bridge of your glasses down on the lower edge of the eye opening. This helps to keep your breath from coming up from below and fogging out your glasses. While riding, I adjust from time to time while at a stop light, or any other time when stopped, to reestablish the seal between my glasses and the lower edge of the balaclava's eye opening.
Other than a minor inconvenience...this is a great balaclava.

Daniel R: Good question! I too wear glasses. But I have yet to try them with this head piece. But I have worn similar ones and if you have thin wire frame glasses like I do then they can slip on the outside of the balaclava. Just make sure you angle the glasses to miss your ears cause they can get very sore after a few hours on the road. I hope that this helps you with your decision. Nov 28, 2013

Nathan L: I don't wear glasses, I think it may be alright if your glasses have a small frame size. It is very warm and windproof. Nov 28, 2013
