It does the job, design on packaging a bit like an advert for some soft porn and was flimsy and scruffy but as it was for me it didn't matter. I would have been concerned if it was for a gift. Delivery was very quick, within 2 days. One tip, wear it inside out, serious, I wore it the other way and had a deep seam mark going down my forehead it was there for ages..

I only gave this item 4 stars only because when you put it on it does not come any where near to covering your neck like in the photo, apart from that the item is very good just don't expect it to cover your neck like the photo

partner on motorbike very happy. Cam squished in box and box was crumpled in post but this did not affect the product just made the pressie look a bit shabby.

Have worn this for the first time during this spell of cooler weather.I bought it to wear under my cycling helmet as I am seriously follically challenged! and of course these helmets all have airslits in them.
I have to agree with other reviewers who commented on the size of the seam...it is pretty huge! however I dont find it too uncomfortable at all and it certainly kept my bald old head warm too!
In 2 short phrases,cheap as chips, and warm as toast.

I've had other balaclavas over the years and after a short time they go out of shape especially around the eyes(bumps of material sticking out by the corner of the eye) and are too short around the neck.This is made of a type of lycra material so the whole thing is elasticated. Your vision not impaired as it hugs the face it comes down enough to give fair neck protection,is comfortable and is warm.

Summary: Owned one of these for a while, and had some decent use out of it. It's cheap, and does the job very well. Wear it inside-out for increased comfort. Withstands use, and washes, well.

First Impressions:
I was tired of being given scummy loaner helmets at trackdays and karting sessions, and considering that I couldn't quite afford a helmet of my own, I thought a balaclava would be the best option. And it is!

The photo *is* a little misleading, in that the product does not afford any neck protection, but that wasn't an issue for me, and there are no other complaints I can really level at this thing. The product is stuffed into an undersized box bearing some .. interesting.. artwork on it, and the whole affair feels as you might expect it to, at this sort of price-point. Give the balaclava a good wash before first use!

In use:
In use under a helmet, the garment will keep your head pretty warm, but not excessively so. I've worn mine on a good number of occasions now, both indoor and outdoor, each time with a different helmet, and at no point has it ever never felt uncomfortable. Temperature and 'breathablility' are both satisfactory.

The only thing I'd really point out is that, owing to a huge seam running all the way along what is meant to be the inside of the balaclava, you might be left with an impression running up your forehead. It could even be a bit uncomfortable. Wear the garment inside-out to avoid this. It's supremely cosy when worn in this way.

Closing:
It's wonderfully cheap, and feels like it's withstood multiple outings and washes (a 40°C wash seems to be fine), and should last for many more, too. Buy one!

I am disappointed by this balaclava. Yes it looks just like the photograph, but it is described as silk, when it is in fact synthetic silk. Surely this flies in the face of the Trade Descriptions Act. I have previously had a silk balaclava and found it to be excellent. I feel deceived by Amazon.

I, too, feel that this is sold misleadingly as "silk". It's only when you read the small print that you see it is in fact "synthetic silk". Don't buy it if you want the real thing.
