The Hood Balaclava sets the industry standard in performance, comfort, and protection from the elements. Skiers, snowboarders and snowmobile riders have made the Hood their go-to balaclava since 2008 thanks to its ergonomic design, patented Exo-Hinge construction, seamless helmet compatibility, and 4-way stretch fabric that is antimicrobial and moisture wicking. The Hood Balaclava is UPF 50+ (UV) rated for all day sun protection. The head and neck are a single layer of fabric to maximize heat and moisture management while the Exo-Hinge is a dual layer construction that is breathable and provides an extra barrier of wind protection.

  • Proudly made in the USA
  • Patented Tri-Blend fabric (Milled in the USA)
  • One size fits most adults (Available in kids)
  • Wind rated dual layer Exo-Hinge neck and face
  • Single layer head & neck for a helmet friendly ergonomic fit
  • Synthetic, 4-way stretch, breathable, moisture wicking & lens safe fabric

Since 2008, our commitment to developing and manufacturing products in the USA has involved working with various domestic textile manufacturers, employing 100's of domestic cut and sew employees as well as operating our product processing from our Bend OR HQ including the quality control, packaging, and distribution of all of our products.

Great Facemask

This Hood Balaclava is the best one I have had in a long time. I highly recommend it for any of your family. I bought this and the Tube Facemask for my daughter for Christmas and one of each for myself and we both love the fit and the warmth under our helmets. I am purchasing one for my husband now. Thank you for being made in the USA!!!

Hooded Balaclava

BS makes the best ski gear on the market, the hooded balaclava is no exception. Keep making your products in the USA!

Nice fit

Fits nicely under my helmet, and thin enough to not add unnecessary bulk around my neck. I expect I’ll still need a fleece layer around my neck on extra cold days.
