REV'IT! Maximus WSP Balaclava
Warm and comfortable
The day I received this, I took it out for a spin in 25 degree F weather and, while I was dodging ice spots and my fingers were about to fall off, my head and neck were completely comfortable. I was pretty amazed, because it's fairly thin, but however the "windstopper" fabric is constructed makes it very protective. And since it's thin, it fits nicely under a helmet without feeling bulky or uncomfortable (I wear a full-face helmet and it never feels awkward to me).
Size - I agree with the video, I think most people would wear the SM size.
A really great product. I highly recommend this if you ride a lot in the annoyingly cold months.

Oh Heck Yeah!
This is one of the best gear I bought. Wore this on 30 F at +/-70 mph for 4 hrs and kept my neck not feeling cold at all.

Large might have been too big, but small could be a little bigger.
This revit product is really nice, just used it for a week long trip to Vancouver island were the temps were about 32F-40F works like a charm. pretty sure your supposed to wear it over your nose like in the picture but it fogged my visor up so bad I wear it just below my nose and its actually more comfortable that way. these are supposed to be a snug fit and it works better when it is so I'm sure the large would have been too big. I wear a 7 hat and a large helmet. ultra comfortable and worth every penny. Although the bib flaps up from time to time and is annoying it works well to keep the wind and rain out.

I needed something to keep me warm during the winter commute - 45 highway miles in one direction. This balaclava has a great slim and comfortable fit. No pressure points. Keeps you perfectly warm. Wind and cold can't touch you. All that said, it's hard to keep from stretching the front where it covers your nose when you slip on your helmet. Once that happens it just sits lose against your nose and fogs up your visor. At that point I would just pull it down off my nose and go.
I ended up buying an open face balaclava and using a breath box instead. Not as warm this way, but it's been my best option so far. I bet this would work much better with my open face helmet, but at the speed and distance I have to travel I prefer to use my full face helmet during the winter.

Awesome product well worth the money. Keeps me warm so far. I have used it in mid 30 degree weather. And expect to use it in lower temperatures. Also does a good job of keeping my visor clear from being foggy.

overpriced and poorly designed
This item fit poorly and did not provide adequate insulation from the elements. Per the videos recommendation I got the small, even though I wear a large helmet. The garment fit loosely which meant it shifted and did not cover nose. The nape of the neck was not long enough. Air came in through the back of my jacket. I would not recommend this item.

Perfect protection and comfort
Fits well, stops the wind, and keeps me warm but not hot. I ride year-round, rain, snow and sun.

Great for riding in the cold
This is not the first balaclava that I have used but is definitely the best. The front bib does its job and blocks all wind from the neck area with no leaks or drafts. It fits comfortably on the head and does not have any thick seems to create pressure points under your helmet.
Despite having a mesh area around the mouth and nose to exhale through, I do notice an increased tendency to fog my visor when stopped or travelling very slowly. Overall its a quality balaclava that does everything its supposed to.
