good not great
This product is warm and breathable, but the shape is a bit odd. It feels like the part under the chin does not go back to your neck sufficiently and this forces the material to gather making it hard to buckle your chin strap. I guess it just really isn't form fitted to a human head like a neoprene piece would be. It also tends to crush your nose and it is hard to breath in it if you keep you nose covered.

Great for cold weather!
This is exactly what it says. It fits nice and snug and lets my helmet slide on nicely. The neck fits into the top of my jacket and I do not get any air leakage even with the cord for my earbuds coming out from under the Balaclava and over the top of my coat. Even in a full tuck on a CBR 1000 the neck does not pull out of my coat. I rated it Excellent in airflow because it is designed to block all of the wind and it DOES.

The only issue I have had, is with my glasses fogging up the first time I put on my helmet. A slight adjustment to have the front of the Balaclava set just below my nose solved the problem.

I have used this Balaclava about ten times in temps down to 34 degrees and could not be happier with it.

Warm and Affordable
Rode for an hour in 35 degree F weather, at highway speeds and was cozy the entire time. I wear a full face helmet in the winter and ran into a bit of fogging, while stopped, but nothing unreasonable. Makes the helmet a bit tight, as expected, but again not unreasonable. All in all, a great buy.

Love it!
I bought this after an unseasonably cold ride that left my ears frozen for hours. My helmet leaks a lot of air, so I was looking for something that would keep me warm, and I wasn't too worried about fogging. I have to say, I am really impressed by this balaclava! I've been using a scarf only, and this just makes an enormous difference. I love it!

As other reviewers have pointed out, it definitely makes my sunglasses fog. However, I find that just pulling the nose part down a little reduces this problem enough to keep them totally clear when I'm moving, and mostly clear when I'm stopped.

Very Warm and Comfortable
Love this product! Keeps me warm on my ride to work and doesn't bunch up when I'm putting on my helmet.

As an added bonus I look like a ninja every day!

No Wind
I've used this Balaclava a few times now, and it definitely makes a HUGE difference. There is absolutely no wind on my neck, and I like that I can pull the nose part down below my chin if I want some more air. I haven't used it in the rain yet, but it is very comfortable and doesn't take up extra helmet space.

I should have got one years ago
I have grown tired of feeling the cold on my neck and cheeks. This fits all around and stops all drafts.
I haven't tried it in super cold but it fits good and stays tucked into the collar of my jacket.
Works good when on my tractor and mowing the yard as well.
Thanks Rev-

Great for the price
i have used this item for a couple weeks now, keeps my neck nice and warm and helps keep the wind out of my jacket as well. i am very glad i bought this item. my only complaint is that it tends to direct my breathe upward, and fogs my visor up when i stop, but i just lift up my visor when i stop. no big deal. i wear a medium in a hjc helmet so i ordered the sm-med size, fits perfect and is not to tight. i highly recommend this balaclava to anyone ridding in cold temperatures.

Works as advertised
Great fit
Great price
Keeps the cold off of your neck and face.

The only downside is that the back seems short and the mask sometimes rides up past the collar on some of my jackets. This was not a huge deal for me, I have several jackets so I just make sure that I wear one with a higher collar while wearing this mask.

The shortness on the back of the mask is not a deal breaker but something to be aware of. It will definitely be a factor if you only had one or two jackets.

With some thermal protection, I can probably ride all winter. With rain protection, I can definitely ride all winter.

i ride all year round and this helps preventing cold in coming in from my neck area and under the helmet

Borrowed one for deer hunting. Worked awesome morning temps were hovering at 6-7 DegF and face stayed warm and dry in the tree stand for 7 hours straight. Not just for riding apparently.

I comfortably wear an XL Scorpion EXO-700 Predator helmet. Its not tight, but not too loose either. Would a large/xl balaclava be too thick or will a small be too tight/unfitted against my head?

Cold weather is already affecting me >:[
A shopper on Aug 12, 2012
BEST ANSWER: I wear a Large HJC full face and purchased the small/medium balaclava, due to me being a medium in other helmet sizes. The helmet gets a bit tighter, but nothing too bad. I think that the thickness of the fabric is the main contributing factor to helmet tightness, not the size of the balaclava itself, so the tightness would be the same regardless of the size you buy.
I have a 22 inch head size. Which one should I buy?
