The first thing you will notice about this beautifully contorted Balaclava is it's low weight, at around 45gms. I particularly liked the choice of Polartec Fleece that Montane have chosen, it is the kind of variety that does not itch to high heavens in slightly milder conditions, and the mouth guard is made from a high wicking material that is comfortable around the mouth, allowing excellent breathing.
They say that one size fits all, well mine could have been tailor made, I've never worn such a comfortable piece of headgear,and the cut of the material around the eyes is perfect.
A really nice touch is the use of Pertex around the ears and sides of the head that take a real buffeting in strong winds.
This Balaclava could easily be used on those extreme Summer days when it's chucking it down, and because of its lite weight is suited to all times of the year other than the cold winter months.
How many times have you worn your waterproof and found that however well designed the hood, on those extreme days when your fighting the elements the wind and rain still hits the face with the velocity of a exocet missile.
The perfect fit of this balaclava,hugging the entire head and face, would make it the ideal partner to go under your top of the range waterproof, just for that added protection.
Once you've actually tried this lovely Balaclava on,you will soon realise it's worth every penny and commands one of the easiest 5stars for all round head cover.
