Great Balaclava for Skiing
I purchased for skiing on very cold days. Not only for warmth, but to prevent frostbite. Very good fit under helmet, and also very comfortable. Breathes very well, and extremly warm. Great for skiing in the Rockies!!!

Power Stretch Balaclava
I purchased this for high-altitude mountaineering and it was fantastic. Light-weight, easily packable, and ready to wear. During the freezing nights, the Balaclava kept my head, and face warm and cozy. Excellent wind coverage and when I wanted to reduce the warmth, I just pulled it down around my neck and it acted as a neck gaitor. Brilliant piece of equipment - necessary for high Alpine climbing and windy environments.

Power Stretch Balaclava
I normally wear this during work on midnights. Fits great and keeps my head warm when I am outside for extended periods of time. Fits snug enough. Blocks some wind but not all, should be expected. Will probably buy another to keep in my ski bag.

Great product
Wear mine for cold weather cycling under my helmet. It is thin and works great.
