Saves me on cold mornings This was recommended to me by George at RevZilla. Im still trying to decide exactly how to wear the outer gortex layer. I've just been tucking both layers into my jacket. I ranked air flow poor, because that's the idea...this keeps all the air off my neck. Coldest I've ridden is mid 40s at highway speeds. Only drawback is that it causes fogging at stop lights. Slightly more expensive than I cared for, but so far it's made cold rides doable. October 6, 2014
Excellent for cold weather neck protection Fit and finish are great. Keeps me warm on those cold Michigan mornings. May 18, 2014
Excellent!! That balaclava is fantastic!! I never used a balaclava for riding before, and used to use a neck warmer instead. That balaclava does a great job keeping my entire head warm, especially the neck/shoulders and upper chest area. It's easy to wear (as long as it's before wearing the jacket - or else, you would have to take the jacket off, put on the balaclava, then the jacket). I rode in 20'F temperature for hours, speed ranging from 30mph to 60mph, and it held on very well. It complements your winter jacket and keeps your neck and chin warm and comfy. March 10, 2014
Protects againts biting cold This makes a huge difference in biting cold weather. Definitely a must in the winter months. February 26, 2014
Good Protection good protection from the wind for my face and upper chest/shoulders area, I recommend. Keeps me warm January 16, 2014
Must have for winter riders Style - It's all black, looks good. Comfort - Incredibly comfortable. It fits perfectly with my Alpinestars Drystar Lucerne jacket. I don't even realize I'm wearing it...which is a good thing! Protection - I just wore this in 32 degree F weather to work on the highway 16 miles. My head or neck was never cold. Shows how good the protection from wind and cold it is. It is a winter balaclava afterall.... Air Flow - Excellent as in you get none in the winter time. From the title it is supposed to be for winter. You don't want air flow and you won't get it from this. Works perfectly for winter. Features - Air and mouth holes. Sits around your neck and shoulders under jacket. Very light and extremely warm. You can also tighten it up if you have a small neck. January 15, 2014
hardly know its there They did a good job with the fit under a helmet, no pressure points and doesn't make the helmet fit excessively tight. At first didn't do a great job of keeping the wind and cold off my neck and face but then i tucked both layers into my jacket and it performed much better than with just the one. I just wish it had some kind of rigid nose piece to help keep the mask in place. Little pricey to leave features to be desired but still a decent enough product. January 13, 2014
Functions well. Good product. Not bulky and fits around neck and upper chest well December 30, 2013

Joseph R asked: So instead of buying this AND a neck sock, could one simply purchase this balaclava and wear it about the neck when it's chilly and all the way up when it's -really- cold?

I wear a large Gunner WP jacket and a medium Icon Variant just so you all are aware.

Daine P: Hey there Joseph.

The A-star balaclava i found is great for all winter sitcho's. I may also add that the clava actually surprisingly keeps your face warm to the point of it working to well and foging up your lids visior,
as well as keeping the cold wind of your face.
Yes you can just pull the top half down and use as a neck sock and i have before.
Since buying my one I have found one little problem with the A-star clava, it tends to slide off the nose no matter how you wear it and i have since bought a dainese one which just has that better nose shape and cut so for me the dainese one wins but equally they are very close winners.
If you want to wear a neck warmer as well it can be added as an extra however I don't know what conditions and where in the world your ridding but i think it maybe overkill however clothing your self with layers is always good cause if you get to hot you can rip it off.
Hope I have answered your question. Best of luck.

Austin-Ace T: Hi Joseph,

Yes the balaclava works very well to insure that both your face and neck is protected from the wind. Keep in mind that I travel about 100 miles a day commuting on my bike, and it's gets pretty chilly at night. However, the balaclava works very well. No need for a neck sock.

Rocky T: Yes this balaclava can be worn without the need of a neck sock. I even wore this balaclava to ski in Colorado last winter and my face and neck stayed nice and warm. Sep 8, 2014

Jim V: I have done that, you just have to breathe carefully when stopped so it doesn't fog up your visor. This pretty much takes the edge off the frost bite. Sep 3, 2014

Anita M asked: I wear an XS-S helmet, would this balaclava fit me comfortably and not slide or bunch? Sep 4, 2013

Shawn W: Mine is rather snug, but I wear a large helmet. It's the BEST balaclava I found yet and I've gone through quite a few (I also ride throughout most of the winter as long as the roads are safe).

I would order it - if it doesn't fit RevZilla is really good about returns, or you could take it to a alterations shop and have them fit it for you.

A shopper asked: I wear an XS-S helmet size, would this balaclava fit my head comfortably without sliding or bunching? Sep 4, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Peter C: I wear a medium helmet and this balaclava fits well. I have to adjust the fit once my helmet is on and tug it back above my nose, but other than that there is no sliding or bunching to mention.

Overall its a pretty snug fit around my head. My helmet slides right over the top without a problem.
