Worked Great

Finally got down into the low 30's so I could try this out. Very happy with the fit and the comfort. This is not stretchy so "snot rockets" require removal of the balaclava. I was very pleased with how well it stayed in place. I don't push myself on these cold weather rides. I am just trying to spend time up on two wheels. I was able to breath without issue, but if I was really pushing myself, I would not be getting as much air as I would want. You are drawing your breath through little holes instead of a big opening. This way is much warmer and I wanted warmer so no complaints.

Thank you for your feedback.

Not a one size fits all garment as advertised

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.

Thank you for your feedback.

Works Great Better Than Expected

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.

Thank you for your feedback.

Really, 41-50 degrees! What do you have for the low teens and single digits?

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?

Thank you for your feedback.

Not Ideal for Cycling

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.

Thank you for your feedback.
