Effective and dependable I live in California and commute to work on my naked bike 4 out of 5 days every week even in the winter... Rain or shine (more like: Fog). This is my second Alpinestars Touring Winter Balaclava in 3 years. I have three other Balaclavas: 2 from Smartwool and a thinner one from Alpinestars. This Touring Winter Balaclava mostly gets used for the wettest days (although we haven't had a lot of that lately) because of the multi-layered construction around the neck which effectively helps to shed moisture from running down my back. I usually ride with an Aerostich Tranist Suit (which really is 100% waterproof) and this Balaclava helps seal out moisture for me around my neck. It isn't really 100% waterproof and will absorb some moisture but because of the dual collar it's the best you are going to get. It isn't the warmest and doesn't layer well as my other Balaclavas b/c of the big collar... When it is <32F I attempt to double up and will wear a thin beanie over the thin cap. Overall it is a good product, but not the warmest as it isn't insulated. On its own I don't wear it if the temps are over 60F or under freezing but in the winter in CA that is most days.

Extends the Riding Season I commute and I've tried multiple (non-motorcycle) gimmicks to keep the cold air out of my neck area and also to keep my face comfortable for those times when you have to crack the visor to keep the shield clear. This one does the trick. The neck area is fleece lined, but the head area is not, so you won't have to get a new helmet... February 16, 2015
perfect for cold days Blocks the cold wind from your upper chest neck and face area February 15, 2015
Great features, fits as it should Great balaclava, no seam in middle of forehead as my old one has, comfortable, stops wind and cold, fits under my new helmet with no issues and new helmet fits tight. highly recommend it product. January 20, 2015
fits good fits good not too tight, does not interfere with helmet fit, I have only tried it in 40 degree weather however it will be in the 20's in two days then I will give it a real good try and let you know how it goes January 5, 2015
Product delivers as promised Fits well and keeps you warm...maybe not toasty warm but makes for comfortable riding in cold temps. Road in 26 degree temps and was comfortable. December 22, 2014
This should have been R&D tested. Unfortunately, this is one of those products that was probably faxed over to the sweatshop factory with little or no testing time in the intended environment. It's a winter touring balaclava supposedly, but it's definitely not up to the job. At first it seems nice with the double layer collar thing and the water proof neck cover but there is a pretty unforgivable aspect to the product and that is the face material. The fit is nice but there is no thermal backing or windproofing on the chin. The thing should be waterproof and windproof from the upper lip down. What this means is basically your chin freezes if you ride in the cold. Seriously, I want to start my own riding gear company because no one ever gets it right. The Revit Amazon GTX did the face warmth aspect better but they didn't make it long enough. If any of these companies are listening, we need a long, waterproof (not just windproof), warm, securely fastening balaclava for under 80 bucks. November 9, 2014
gets the job done Good product. Thin material. Fits in helmet nice and comfy. Protects the neck. Only draw back is that the nosecond hole is really small. Needs to be larger November 3, 2014

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.
