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.

Fit and easy removal

Solid Helmet Companion

I love the fit, it’s snug, but not restrictive. I’m sure there are similar products with similar tech, but I love the hinge feature. Stays on, doesn’t get soaked, not too hot under a helmet and really comfortable. The customer service was 5 star too, had to exchange a first purchase and they mailed within same day of me reaching out and zeroed out the cost between the balaclavas. Good company, stellar product for boarding and winter sports

Love it

I have a small head (50cm), so the adult sizing is not tight on my head and I like that. I can wear this over my face without feeling constricted or pull it down easily and wear as a neck gaiter. Love the color. For those with large heads, I would think this would feel constricting. And on super cold days, it might be nice to have a balaclava with a fleece line neck gaiter. Just my 2 cents.
