keeps my sensitive skin from getting battered from the wind and cold. i love how the construction allows for easy up and down so i can have a drink outside and still have my head and neck protected.

Best Baklava I’ve ever owned

What a Perfect fit under my helmet for skiing! Bought four- all expedition hoods for my whole family. We all stayed much warmer skiing and we all love these! We will be ordering more. The only downside is that the mouth/nose area gets slightly wet from your breathe, but it does dry fairly quickly. We want another to change into half way thru the day though.

Great Gift

One of my relatives walks at least a mile every day in the Midwest, no matter the weather. This balaclava was a great gift that helps keep him going when the temperatures are below zero.

I bought this hood for my sister because she’s often cold while skiing and she needed a face mask. This far, she’s not been able to use it. The quality of the piece is very high, comfort level high and functionality can’t be beat. Way to go Black Strap.
