does the job well
It does what it is supposed to do. The only drawback is probably same for all other similar items: when you pull it over your nose in cold weather, the air comes out above your nose and fogs the glasses if you wear any.
Other than that, great product.

Great for cold weather riding
This balaclava is great for cold weather riding, it actually helps a lot. It blocks the wind and keeps the heat inside. Only downfall of it is I think it is a little short. It keeps pulling out of my jacket.

This weekend temps during our ride thru Minnesota, Iowa,WI and IL were from 30 to 60 degrees, worked great and keep me warm all the time. Its a light thin material that doesn't make the helmet so tight either.

It does the job. I have glasses, and it is hard for me to put them on after I put the balaclava on...but it is warm.

This product has kept me warm during temperatures as low as 34 degrees and has been so far comfortable up to 60 (lowest and highest temps I've ridden with it thus far). I would like for the coverage on the sides of my neck to be longer. Sometimes I feel air there or the balaclava seems like it's getting loose from under my shirt.

Great when working hard
This is a great head sock when your working hard. It's a little cool for me. Bib is a little too short so if your moving a lot it might pop out of the jacket if your not zipped all the way up. For the price it's way better than the cheap head socks with no bib.
The COVERT BALACLAVA
SKU#: 3085-000-000-000 would have been better for me because I'm just a slow trail rider and I like my head and face to be warm.
All in all if you're looking for a good price range for a decent headstock is not a bad purchase

Good wind protection
After having this for a few months now i have worn it in temperature ranges from 8-35 degrees at highway speeds. It is a big difference between having it on and not. It does a great job of keeping the wind off your skin.

People buy balaclavas for different reasons. Mine was simple - the combination of my Dumbo ears and my Shoei RF-1100 was getting painful. So I thought - why not try a head sock?
It works. There may be other products that do as good or better (and if you know of one please share!) but this one has made the difference in my ability to keep using my RF-1100.
No issues with durability, breathability, or fit. For me, it's a comfortable headsock I can put on and then forget about - which is what is supposed to happen.
