Expedidtion Hood Balaclava

Nice color and feel. One problem is that part that goes across my face stretches out and won't stay up after wearing for a few runs.

Great for Skiing!

Very comfortable and breathable material; Kept me warm and dry in blizzard conditions. Bought two additional balaclavas for the family after the trip.

Exceeds expectations! Great material that caresses my skin while staving off excessive moisture build up keeping me warm and dry! Fits snug and can either protect my whole face without compromising my breathing or sit down low enough to let me choke on mouthfuls of powder!!
