Arctiva Dickie Balaclava
Perfect for those chilly days!
Needing a snug barrier from the wind chill here, I bought this in the hope I could reduce the amount of "leaks" my current one did. This is much larger, fans out around the neck further, and at over 140km/h I still can't feel any freezing old air getting through, it's -5 degrees C without the wind chill factor. I'm very pleased

this thing is awesome
got this barclava a few days ago and it works wonders. i've worn it in the 30's at highway speeds and it keeps my head, face,neck,and chest nice and toasty. the noose and mouth vent thing does a good job at keeping you faceshield from fogging up when your moving, however i do have to prop my shield open just a lil bit at stoplights. overall this thing is awesome

I ride in temps down into the teens, and under my full-face this def keeps my head and face warm.
I like that the lower portion does cover as much as it down. Helps with keeping those chilly little drafts that ca work their way in.

If you ride below 30 degrees, this is the balaclava for you! This really does keep your neck, throat, and face warm, as if you were home by a lit fireplace. It works great in the teens and 20s, all the way up into the 40s. It is super warm. I wish it'd cost less, but it really works!! I do have the $15 version and it just doesn't cut it. This one does the job, all by itself, without any added layers.

Useful to have
Glad to have the dickie and the full face cover. Wish the nose ridge was wired to shape and keep exhale from fogging the visor of the helmet (3/4) still fogged at the stops and slower speeds. Fits well, covers well, warm enough though chin could have used extra as the only exposed part of my head.
