To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Whether riding bikes, robbing banks or just talking a walk on a cold day, these balaclavas have you covered. They are form fitting and comfortable. The material is supple and you can breathe through it easily. It does not seem to leave any marks on my face. The field of view is wide and does not get in my way at all.
This product is great for cold weather riding and summer riding. It keeps the cold off the mouth and it keeps the sun off your face. The best part is after a long day of rising you throw this in the washer and it's good as new. It also helps to keep the helmet clean and your hair looking good if you know how to slip it on. I bought two additional ones.
I am going to have a blue light treatment on my face soon. After the treatment I cannot be in sun or near windows for 48 hours. I have to get home and I live in a place with lots of windows. Living in a dark hotel room for 48 hours does not appeal so I looked for something like a lightweight balaclava on Amazon. If Amazon doesn't have it it may not exist. I found these and ordered a pink one.
This is exactly what I wanted. Lightweight, smooth, and comfortable. The top of my nose and around my eyes are exposed, but I can deal with that. It's not something I will wear after the two days are over--as far as I know, so the price is right. Very pleased to find just the right thing.
At the time of this review, part of the item name includes "ski mask." As one of the negative reviews says though, "Material is like ladies' nylons."
This is actually a great thing in certain applications. It's comfortable to wear, and can keep a costume from getting soaked in your sweat. Also helps keep long hair more manageable if you're putting any sort of mask/helmet on.
The reason I'm giving it 5 stars is because this is (so far) the most comfortable balaclava I've tried-- there are a LOT that I can't stand wearing for any considerable period of time.
I am skeptical when a product claims 'one-size-fits-all.' I seldom find that to be true. However, in this case the product fit over even my huge head. Remarkably comfortable, as well. I could have worn this product for several hours and be toasty warm without choking or binding.
I purchased this balaclava hoping that other reviews were accurate, concerning the material thickness. I own several other balaclavas for the cold winter, in which they are fairly thick. I wanted one that was thin that could be worn for the fall and this one was perfect. I am thankful I ordered two.
It fits well, not too tight or too loose. I have a rather large “noggin” too. I don’t know how well these will hold up. Only time will tell, but they do seem to be stitched good.
Good product. Fabric is thin, but keeps the cold air off my face, ears and neck. Most importantly, it keeps the very cold air out of my lungs. I am in Atlanta, so the temperature is not extremely cold, but I use this when the temperature is in the 30s and I am very pleased. I use a wool cap on top if there is a lot of wind.
