Not as impressive as its made out to be.

I got the smaller size as other reviews state the large is prone to slipping and blocking vision. It was a tight fit but not particularly uncomfortable. The opening for your eyes is smaller than you think, and it does not form nicely over your nose as the photos would suggest which makes it a little uncomfortable in that area. Elsewhere it is comfortable, but I found it to not be entirely windproof as I would have hoped for, and the reason for buying it! I felt the cold more than with a standard woolly balaclava, perhaps because it sits tighter against your skin. The biggest flaw I have found though is that it muffles out noise from the bike and its surroundings, but seriously exaggerates the wind noise through the fabric. So much so I choose not to wear it anymore because of the constant loud noise in my ears at anything over about 15mph. It is totally unbearable above 45mph. I had to take it off and put up with the cold.

Good Balaclava

Good wind breaking on the neck. I have a size small lid and this fits nice and snug. Bonus Covid face covering at fuel stops with a flip-up.

Fantastic winter accessory

Really good bit of kit, the large neck on it keeps it tucked under clothing very well, can't feel any wind on my neck and it fits under my helmet perfectly fine. Very cosy too

Great quality and value balaclava.

Excellent value for money and quality product. Good fit I ordered a small for a medium sized helmet. Snug fit and doesn't slip or move once helmet is on. Eyelet is a fraction small but probably feels this way until I get used to wearing it. Head and neck are kept nice and warm.

Amazing materials

My one fits snugly round my head and doesn't move at all. Space age materials. This little cracker will be going with me on every trip. Just the thing for a chilly Scottish morning !!!

Quality product at a great price

Having read the other reviews i was satified that this was a quality product, which is required as may others i have purchased stretch out of shape and become unusable. I decided on a large, i am a meduim in helmet size, due to some reviews stating the eye hole was small. It fits well and is very comfortable as helmet lining is forgiving; i found it does not move once the helmet is on. The eye hole is ok for myself, as it is elasticated it can be fettled and stretched a bit. The photo is acurate as to how it fits around the eye. If you wear glasses, the glasses will naturally stretch the eye hole wider. Typical Sportsbikeshop service, briliant.

I should have brought this years ago

I love the wind proofing of this. I will probably even give it a go come summer as it just makes life so much more comfortable and as a by product warmer. my helmet fits perfectly and this doesn't move underneath, I just adjust the aperture through my visor before riding off and it stays put. Oxford, not the best looking but very effective.

Great for the price

Seems to work well, Only issue being that it can move - did a lifesaver and it stretched/moved meaning it covered one of my eyes when I looked forward.. pretty dangerous but then that might be more down to my helmet fit. Only does it if my lifesaver is quite aggressive Other than that - great

Can't do lifesavers properly but overall warm

I purchased this because I wanted the solve the problem of misting in my helmet. It has more or less solved the misting problem but it created a lifesaver problem. I need to turn my head more since the balaclava blocks my vision a bit. I sewed it to create a bigger space for my eyes. But apart from this, the balaclava is warm, covers most of the face, keeps my skin from drying up.

Beats the chill so far

Keeps the chill out, as promised. I wear medium helmets and got the small balaclava. It's very snug and takes a little adjustment to align the hole but when it's in place, it's so comfortable that I don't notice it.

Good materials, small eye-hole

The materials are awesome and it feels good to the touch. The slit for the eyes is too small though. I wear helmet XS and order a S Balaclava - it prevents me from seeing well and goes into my eyes so badly, that I won't be able to use it if I don't slice it a bit more or something.

Great and warm.

This will keep you really warm in winter conditions. Quality is excellent against the price. So, no doubt buy and use it!

Best one I've owned!

This is ideal for me as I have a long neck. With other balaclavas I've had to compromise between having my neck covered or my nose covered. I got this in a large (I wear a large AGV or Davida lid if that helps give some scale) and it covers my full face apart from the eyes nicely but also covers my full neck and tucks in well to my jacket so there are no drafts. Keeps me warm and dry as well!
