Good To Go
I used this balaclava with a UA coldgear balaclava under it in subzero conditions and it worked fantastic, It stood up to a 40 MPH rotor wash with a chill factor of minus 20 degrees, This item was used under severe conditons and on Helo insertions in the mountains at about 8.000 feet, Very glad i had this item with me!!

Here in Colorado, we have 54 mountains over 14,00 feet. I recently climbed two of these mountains, and was definitely glad I had my OR Windstopper Gorilla Balaclava. Experiencing wind gusts of 45 mph, and wind chill values of between -5 and -15 degrees, this balaclava kept me very warm. It provides excellent overall coverage, and a proper fit is provided utilizing a velcro adjustment system. The ability to remove or add the nose and mesh breathing port is a big plus! I would definitely recommend this balaclava. This is my third purchase with Altrec, and I have been very satisfied with their service!

GREAT WIND PROtrecTION!
I love this balaclava. Because my face gets cold snowboarding, I had been wearing 2 face masks which was a bit bulky. Now I am perfectly comfortable, warm, and I love its versitlity.

This is the warmest product on the market. The product is also relatively confortable. Good protection against the wind and ice. I highly recommend it.

I like windstop material always, and it has several velcro attached on nose and neck through mouth, so it's easy to wear on and off. it fit little large, but not too bad. I like the Outdoor Research Windstopper Gorilla Balaclava, and it will work all winter mountain hiking.
