Customer Reviews for Alpinestars Open Face Balaclava - Black

December 26, 2017

Good but over priced

Does the job but is nothing special. At 18 quid it's well over priced for what it is. Its a little baggy for my head and I'm 57cm in diameter.

Unusual feel

The balaclava uses a good quality heavy material and always returns to its original shape. It covers the mouth only and not the nose which feels a little unusual at first if you are used to the 'nose' type like me. But all in all it's very fit for purpose and long enough to keep the chill from your neck.

Great for glasses wearer's

Up till now I have not been able to wear a balaclava under my helmet because I wear glasses and a) the opening is too small to be able to get my glasses on and b) my vision is affected because most balaclava's are closed, covering the nose and mouth so they constantly fog up! Well not any more.

Good stuff

Soft and comfortable, but the real highlight is the dual seam construction at the top of the head, which allows a way better fit than the rooster comb-looking effect of balaclavas with a single seam. Be ready for the very strong plasticky odour when you get it out of its plastic seal, which should go away after a couple of days / wears.
