Balaclava by Bellwether offers a little extra protection to your face in cold weather, It breathes well and does not fog up your glasses or goggles like other balaclavas or neck gators. If you don't have a wooly beard you should invest in one of these.
I use this under my helmet when I go snowboarding. I live in the Pacific Northwest where it's cold and wet and often cold, windy, and precipitation falling. When it's overcast, super cold, and windy this keeps my face warm on the chairlift, on the run, and everywhere in between. When it's clear and sunny this keeps me warm, but it also breathes and keeps me comfortable. I invested in all new gear
I just got my ibex Balaclava. On huge Pow days in Aspen i need something to protect myself from the "face shots" i get on every turn. today was one of those days and i broke out the ibex. It was warm, comfortable against my face and helped deflect the massive pow shots away from my face. With the ibex balaclava, i was able to leave my snorkle at home.
I got my balaclava on a day where it was windy and 10 degrees out. So basically the perfect conditions to test out my new ibex and my balaclava rocked! Normally in these condidtions my face would be red and raw but with my balaclava I didn't even notice the elements.

This is a pretty straightforward product: an Ibex wool balaclava. It's a single layer of wool, thinner than say, the Shak Glove Liners. I am a year-round cyclist, mostly commuting in the winter and road added in warmer months, and I wear this every time I get on a bike and it's cold out.
First, don this balaclava. Second, put the Ibex Neck Gaiter on. (The balaclava alone isn't really up to blocki
I used my new balaclava on a cold morning on my commute into work. I was impressed with the breath-ability of the material, and as things warmed up, I was able to pull it down and use as a windbreak for my neck (aka scarf). Who knew that Balaclava was more than just a tasty Greek treat! ;-)
I used this about a week or so ago for our first blizzard here in Boston - worked great! This item really protects your head, neck and most of your face. That said, I felt it was too big - multiple sizes would be a great addition to this item. But the size was/is not a deterrent in using it. I'm glad I purchased it.
