I ride year-round in Chicago weather.

After riding with this balaclava for the past month, I have to say that it is worth every penny. It is excellent in blocking all the wind from hitting my neck, have not tested it in downpour rain, but it does keep snow out very well. I wear this balaclava when temperatures drop below 50 degrees, and have tested it down to the single digits on an hour long ride at highway speeds.

The built in breath box is excellent, it is quite a pleasurable change to be able to breathe fresh air :) vs. inhaling the air I had just exhaled. Paired with a good pair of goggles ( 100%) my fogging up is quite minimized.

Overall fit is good for me ( I wear size XS to S in helmet size).
the eye opening might be a bit small for guys that have larger heads, it might take some getting used to, but overall GREAT PRODUCT.

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.

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.

Keeps you warm for a NY winter!
This balaclava keeps you warm, and the drop-cape that falls over your chest & upper back completely keeps the cold wind out. The nose-portion aiming downwards, in order to exhale & not fog up the faceshield, doesn't work to its full potential with a full face helmet.

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.

Great Product
Excellent product, glad I purchased it. It works well with an MX style helmet with goggles. Works great on a cold snowy night. Little pricey but it is well worth it.

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.

Best face mask on the market.
At speed, I feel no wind through this mask. I'm still working on getting used to the new breath guard, but in chilly weather, nothing I've used comes close.
My first ride with this balaclava was a rainy day at 38 degrees in Iowa with a half-helmet. The wind was blowing, and I was the only rider on the road on two wheels. Despite the biting cold, I was warm as toast. What else can I say, but WOW. This balaclava is worth every penny spent on it.

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.

Review and video lead me to believe this will be a good balaclava for my MX style snowmobile helmet.

Looks like a good choice to protect against the onset of the Wisconsin winter.

It gets cold in PA and last year my face froze without one. So I got the best one you sell!

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

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.

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?
Dimmy on Nov 28, 2013
BEST ANSWER: 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.

Is this a one size fits all?
Stephen R on Jan 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: NI it isn't. Because it is pretty shaped, the nose section rises up to almost eye level & you constantly have to adjust it
