I bought one for my wife who is an avid gearhead like I am and who rides fat bikes in the winter. There was only one size when I bought it, and so I thought it would have enough forgiveness to fit any had with hair. Not so. She found it very uncomfortable and way too tight for her taste. I tried it, and it's okay for the first 20-30 minutes, but then it does get annoying. There is not nearly enough forgiveness in this fabric. A good product, but probably best for a 2 mile walk with the dog.
Earlier this year used in the Silver State 508 where the overnight temps dropped into the upper 20's. Having this Balaclava kept me in the race and kept me nice and toasty. I strongly recommend this product as the ultimate accessory for cold weather riding.
I was considering whether (weather) to buy this product. Its description does not fit even mild winter weather. What else do you have? I use to wonder why I could not find warm gloves for winter commuting. When I move back to Minnesota after retiring how will you all keep me warm when it's 20 below?
Nicely made. Comfortable. Fairly warm, even in sub 30F Colorado weather.
Not ideal for cycling in my opinion and I'm not sure why BTD sells this. I'd return it, but I've used it twice to see if I could live with it. No way to know just from pulling it over your noggin. Anyhow, the design might be okay for walking around in the cold, but it does not allow for the necessary airflow (in and out) that a cyclist requires. Also, on a less important note not easy to drink from your bottle without pulling it down and one's ability to, ahem, clear one's nose on a ride is severely limited.
