Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this product again I use this product when skiing in extreme cold conditions under my helmet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for skiing Took this for 4 and a half days of skiing at Tremblant. Temps around -8 C to +5 C and this never felt too hot. Great for blocking wind and snow and versatile enough to be worn in a few different ways.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding warmth I bought one of these for work and wow it’s never too warm and in the -8° blisterly cold nights this keeps you warm with out making you sweat. Polartech alpha rocks at being a perfect insulting media.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good balaclava It's a great balaclava. I only wish it had a hole for my mouth, like airhole products

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Deep Cold and Burly Winds require serios coverage! Went back east to visit family and ski, weather predicted near zero and windy conditions on the mountains... Purchased one for me and my bride so we weren't left in the cold NOREASTSER blizzards. These Balacalava's did their jobs... Kept us warm and compfy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Warm but comfortable and light This is an excellent product. Keeps you warm, even though it isn’t a heavy/thick material. It is comfortable and better than anything else on its category, that I’ve tried this far. My only complaint is that it fits a bit lose.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Slightly large I've only used this a few times and it's been very useful. It is advertised as being universal and can be worn multiple ways but when I use it as just a neck gaiter, it's too loose to cover my face

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm, light, and breathable I couldn't decide and bought both the Ninjaclava and Ascendant Balaclava. I've not yet had the time to use them significantly below freezing, but because this is a new product without many reviews I thought I'll submit a review already. I've used the balaclava under a helmet while biking in temperatures close to freezing. Due to the speed and wind, it is actually a nice test for how warm and breathable it is. I thought it worked great. It fits easily under a helmet that I didn't buy to have a lot of space. It's warm, and very breathable compared to other products. Depending on your needs (more warmth and weather protection vs breathability), this may be a great product for you. For hiking trips around 10-20F, I will probably bring both and compare. I'd expect the Ninjaclava to be more suitable in more windy and colder conditions.
