Very nice balaclava
I love this GTX Balaclava. I wear Motoport gear and an Arai XD-4 helmet. Expensive but the best part of this balaclava is that it fits outside the collar and its stiff enough that when you turn your head it turns also and keeps the "umbrella" covering the collar all the way around. Have never used the draw string. No leaks at all. Have worn this at 20 degrees and in downpours on BMW f800gsa. Excellent!

Excellent Balaclava, does its job
The key to keeping warm is blocking the wind. I have worn the GTX Balaclava in 30 degree + temps and many rain showers and does a great job at blocking the wind and rain around the v-neck area. It is extra then on scalp therefore doesn't impede my helmet fit and allows great breathability. The neck area is thin so I wear it with a fleece neck balaclave and it works like a champ. if there was one thing i would change to it is to make the back of the balaclava slightly longer down the back but other than that this balaclava is top notch and highly recommended. I give it a 5 for 5 because it works exactly as it is suppose to do.

No more water leaking through your collar!
I've had this for about 2 months now, and i've had several chances to try this out in torrential rain. It does it's job really well in keeping water out of your jacket collar. Whats the point in having the best waterproof jacket if it leaks from the top?

Well this is a great solution for riders with that problem. It's comfy, doesn't have any sew seams so you won't have marks on your face when you take the helmet off.

The gore-tex only really starts from your chin downwards but it starts higher at the back of your head. That's good because the top part is comfy and not crunchy like the gore-tex. It fits over any collar and can be tightened from inside. What you don't see from the pictures is a really nice big patch of reflective material behind. The striped type one on all of rev'its gore-tex line. The ears have a nice mesh kinda fabric which is thinner for your helmet speakers! how thoughful, but honestly i don't think there's any difference.

My only problem with this is that it covers your nose so it kinda creates fog inside your helmet. I push it under my nose and after expanding the fabric over extended use it isn't uncomfortable anymore. There's a mesh panel where you breathe through your nostrils supposedly to let air out easier, it doesn't really do the job and it's slightly uncomfortable on my lip when i lower it under my nose because it's stitched onto the rest of the fabric.

All in all, it's relatively comfortable and it does its job. But kinda expensive for a balaclava.

second to none in the rain
I bought this for a ride down to Alabama last week. It was 30 degrees out and this blocked the wind and kept me warm. During the week there were downpours. This kept me completely dry. The nice thing about this balaclava is that it goes over the collar. I recommend this to anyone who rides.

Finally!
I have a big pile of balaclavas in the closet. I haven't touched any of them since I got the Rev'it! I wear a Motoport jacket, the liner of which fits very tight at the neck. Any 'clava thicker than silkweight chokes, and makes turning my head difficult. And if the 'clava isn't waterproof, then it just wicks water onto my shirt, which makes for misery.
I was a little wary about the over-the-jacket design (and $60 price tag), but this 'clava does not disappoint. The skull cap is thin enough to be barely noticeable under the helmet. The eyeport is stretchy enough that I can pull it under my schnoz to minimize fogging of the faceshield, and it's waterproof, so I don't get wet.
Quibbles: the drawcord is difficult to grab properly with gloved fingers; and, like other 'clavas, putting on sunglasses through the eyeport can be a bit of a literal pain.
This is now an indispensable part of my inclement weather riding kit. And it folds up tight enough to stuff into any pocket on my jacket or pants.
I highly recommend this to anyone who rides in the rain or cold.

Just what I was looking for
I wear a size 7 3/4 hat and was afraid that the size large would not be a big enough balaclava ... but it fits fine. Appears to be very well made.

Great piece of gear
Got to use this recently on a trip in the high country of Colorado, Utah and Arizona. I put this on as temperatures were dropping into the mid/low 50's. Instant improvement. It fits unobtrusively under my helmet and the mesh near the mouth/nose prevents fogging while moving. Haven't had the chance to check waterproofness yet, but I am confident that it will perform as advertised. Will check back in once I've used it in the rain.

Keeps your warm at 40 degree rides at 60+MPH rides
Easy to put on and take off and the top material is thin to avoid causing fitment issues with your helmet. Plenty of material to tuck into your jacket which is windproof. I rode over an hour at 40 degree weather at 60-100mph speeds and never felt any wind getting through or feeling chilly/cold.

I would definitely recommend this to anyone who commutes or has those late Fall and early Spring rides and don't want to come back to the house with a frozen face.

From a Fourseason rider
The long and short of what I want to conclude in this product is that from 15-25° this Balaklava can perform remarkably well
The only downside is that this item does cost quite a bit
However remarkably the quality is surpassed by anything else I have ever used for full winter season
I wore it inside fullface helmet and my face remarkably warm while still free it is waterproof from the chin down not really a whole lot above that

Does what I need
This does exactly what I need. It blocks the cold air from getting to me between my jacket and helmet. Adds that layer of warmth to ride in colder temperatures. I gave Air Flow an "Excellent" as it performs as designed and blocks all of it .

I read one reviewer that pulled it under his nose to prevent fogging of his helmet. I found that the holes under the nose are adequate and there is minimum fogging. Of course my helmet leaks air everywhere and that may have a lot to do with it. Since my helmet has always open vents at the top this balaclava helps keep me warm. In colder weather I may plug those openings.

Easy on and off, no lines on face, have not ridden with it in a down pour to date. I wear it outside the collar of the jacket.

Definitely would recommend this product.

It was one of a few Gore Tex Balaclava's I could find. Plus buying from Revzilla is always easy and secure.

The dude in the picture looks like a total badass. I bet he wears that on his rides screamin' along the freeway topping 472 mph... with a lit cigarette.

Rain jacket (Gortex) Klim lets rain down the back inside of the jacket. This solves the problem.

Not sure if this what I want. I'm trying something new. I just really want something to keep my neck protected from the cold wind and my head from my super ventilated helmet.
Aidan H on Jan 30, 2015
Protects the last remaining area exposed to cold - my neck and chin. I wear it under a full face and it allows me to ride an un-faired bike on the highway in temps down to the 30's, and it's waterproof. Boom.

Needed to cover my neck from precipitation and wind. I already have a balaclava but they got beat up with time, and I believe this one is tough and durable.
Othmane B on Apr 21, 2014
After understanding how Gore-Tex worked. I decided to get a Gore-Tex Balaclava for winter riding. Life is to short to ride wet and uncomfortable. A little pricey but I got what I paid for. I'm 100% happy with the quality. I'm also 100% happy with my dealings with Revzilla.

Looking for a product like this to wear while snowboarding. Does Gore Tex cover the entire head?
A shopper on Feb 24, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The Gore Tex membrane doesn't cover the entire head. The upper part is a cotton-like material that stretches and is soft and very comfortable to wear. It's also breathable so I don't sweat while wearing it. The Gore Tex covers the lower 2 thirds of the balaclava and will keep your face from your chin/ears down and your neck dry. My friend uses this when snowboarding and says it does the job perfectly.
I see one of the features is that it keeps you cool when it's hot. Can anyone who has worn this during the summer confirm this? Also, when putting your helmet on while wearing this, does it shift around a lot? Thanks!
A shopper on Jul 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I have not worn it in the summer I would find it to be too hot if I did. I have used a lot in cold weather with my fullface helmet it does shift a little bit but once you get it adjusted it stays on just fine.

I do like the product but was thinking in hindsight that any other product will probably do the same thing for a lot cheaper
