Having had a 'thermal' motorcycle balaclava many years ago, I decided to buy the Oxford Coolmax model because of the extreme cold we have been experiencing. I generally like Oxford products and have had a few over the years, all of which have given me long service & value for money. I wasn't sure what to expect with this balaclava and on arrival it felt a bit on the thin side. It is also a bit short in the neck and could be longer (I'm not a giraffe!!). In practice it is not really up to riding in the extreme cold but in plus temperatures would handle the job competently. The Coolmax fabric is great for wicking moisture but hasn't been called upon to perform this task as yet. Hopefully the temperature will rise soon and I can start to enjoy my biking again. I ride all year round and my Oxford Hot Grips have been terrific but how I wish I could find my old balaclava.

I've already got one of these and now I've found one here on amazon & at an excellent price I'll be getting a spare!

This is the Coolmax version of the balaclava's that they do, so this is basically a balaclava for those milder or even hot days, as it's made from a fabric that wicks away the sweat and so keeps you cool.
So if you're looking for a balaclava for wearing on the cool/coldest of days then you need to look elsewhere, as it's not the right type.

This one is ideal if like me you have a shaved (bald) head or you're naturally bald(ing), as it will keep the lining of your helmet clean & sweat free even on the warmest of days.
I use mine all the time & even though I get some odd looks putting on a balaclava on a boiling hot day, I'm the one having the last laugh because when I take my helmet off, I'm virtually (99,9%) sweat free!

An excellent product for riding on the warmer days.

Actually it has two holes - one so you can pull it over your head and another so that, once you've accomplished the first part of the exercise, you can see out of it.

And it's that second hole that is a point of contention for me. Im a huge bloke, you see, and I have a huge head. An XXXL crash helmet is "snug" on me when I keep my head shaved. That means that while the second hole might be big enough for more normally-sized people it's a bit small for me, and nips at the corners of my eyes.

So, if you qualify as normal in terms of body mass I can't reccommend this balaclava enough. It does the job perfectly. But if you're oversized and have a head to match, a different brand might make more sense.

I can certainly see why they used a chick with a little head to model the thing. A bloke weighing in at well over 300 lbs and sanding well over 6' 6" tall would make it look a bit odd :oP

And little people think life can be difficult...

Firstly could not believe how cheap this was and secondly when it arrived (in good time) what good quality it is. My wife was instantly pleased and it fits her face exacly as shown in the picture without hindering her breathing. Fits snugly under her helmet, warm without making her sweat.

I bought two of these for the cold weather in Greece. My only grievance is that from the photo I had expected it to go down further on the back of my shoulders; it turns out it only covered my neck, which allows some of the cold air to enter through my leathers and, if I'm on a long ride, after a while my whole neck will be stiff and I'll need a good massage and/or painkillers.

Otherwise a very good item for non-extreme cold conditions.

As a first time rider doing my CBT and braving the rain and gale force winds this balaclava just didn't stand up to the test it is thin, uncomfortable, and don't be fooled by the picture...it doesn't cover your neck at all.

seriously just buy a neckwarmer/snood

Packaging a bit battered when this arrived, but as it is only material, I wasn't too concerned.
Was expecting a higher quality feel considering the brand, however haven't yet used it in anger, so can't really judge.

A nice thin balaclava that will protect the inside of my helmet without being too hot to wear in the summer.
Good price, fast delivery
Thanks
