Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for cycling I misplaced the balaclava I've had for years and after shopping various models made by cycling companies, I settled on the Option Balaclava. I've had great luck with other OR products, so I figured I may as well give their balaclava a try. It's working great for me. It breathes so much more effectively than my old balaclava. Even though it feels thinner than the old one did, I don't feel like I've lost any insulation. Very pleased with the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Awesome lightweight balaclava. Fits perfect under a helmet and is surprisingly warm for how light it is. Fit is great, no riding up on back of neck.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from simple product Purchased this balaclava for use while staying put in cold weather. Found that it cuts the wind just fine and works pretty well as a gator or for partial coverage. Material is pretty nice, it is thinner than I expected but also provides the warmth I was looking for. Only gripe is that that the material is not as elastic as I thought it would be; when I pull the bottom of the face hole over my nose two folds wrinkle right by my eyes allowing wind in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very well executed bit of textile manipulation! I was clearing snow with my machine today. It was close to Zero and 30 MPH gusts. The OR Balaclava kept me pretty well protected from the winter wolf. I am glad I got it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Did the job Does what this type of Balaclava is supposed to do very well. No itching. Seams didn't bother me. And you couldn't tell who I was in the security video. Joking, joking...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Option Balaclava out performing it's self I've had this Balaclava for some time now and had had it through it's paces, as far as use goes. From, in and out of the Cat while guiding in British Columbia's interior, to pre-dawn sled rides in -25 without the wind. It's compressible, versatile (doubled up into a beanie, or down for full protection) and warm and wind resistant. The brushed outer blocks a surprising amount of wind, keeping me warm in -25 (-30 or lower with wind chill) This is the ideal back up layer for any trip, any season, anywhere. And at 51g thinking or a reason not to bring it is next to impossible. kiwi (Ice climbing, glacier and ski guide, avalanche professional.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Option balaclava exceeded expectations I find I'm carrying this everywhere with me -- it gets me through those first 10 minutes of a chilly early morning run and has been fine to sleep in during winter camping trips. I think it has some sort of thin wind-resistant layer inside it that makes it much warmer than other balaclavas with such a light weight. For the minimalist or ultralight type that deals with cold weather, this is a great gift.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight And Warm: Just Right I have no hair on my head and wear a beanie but when running or just being outdoors for a long time, it's simply not enough. There's a ton of balaclava options out there but a lot are overly complicated or sort of bulky.,,,,This thing was perfect. It is very thin and lightweight (so it won't take up much room in your pack), but durable enough to protect you from the elements. The synthetics are far superior to any cotton or fleece as far as size & weight vs wind-resistance and warmth.,,,,Plus you look awesome wearing a balaclava.
