Italian Army Balaclava

The Italian Army Wool Balaclava is a brand new balaclava that was originally produced for an Italian army contract. Made from a wool blend, these balaclavas will keep your head, face, and neck very warm during the cold months. The Italian army had these made to NATO standards, so there is a double layer of material at the ears and a zippered opening for your mouth. If you spent any time in the Army, you will be very familiar with this NATO-standard balaclava.

This balaclava is well made and will keep your head warm when it gets nippy outside. Just remember to take it off when you walk into a store. :)

very comfortable and very good quality. I have a larger head and the ear padding didn't quite line up center, but still covered my ears. only issue was the mouth zipper on mine was noticeably crooked. Review by Soon (Posted on 1/21/2017)

I've tried several different styles from several different countries. I ride a Harley year round in St. Louis whenever the temp is 40 and above. This thing along with the Swedish military neck scarf give me plenty pf protection on my head and face and still fit snuggly under my regular helmet. I can leave the mouth unzipped and my glasses hardly fog up. This is very well priced, very compact and offers an extremely large amount of warmth and protection. For price and value there should be a 6+ rating. Again KS comes thru and makes my ride a pleasure. Review by Dale (Posted on 12/31/2016)

I work about 11+ hours a day in St. Louis and drive a semi for UPS. My day starts driving a forklift for a few hours before driving. The dock is near the Mississippi river and the open dock can be frigid in the winter! Keeping warm and with visibility is a continuous problem! Most head coverings cover the mouth! Not a good idea! Your breath not only freezes on the cover but it fogs your glasses! The zip open mouth is perfect on this! I ordered several and will sell the extras to my co-workers....

Good value and a good fit for my 7 3/4 head.
Felt thin as a blend but try on and good coverage and working zip over yap. If small ,good neck cover, big guys may want a scarf do more cover. Generous eye and can accomodate goggles well. Ear pads came to top of my ear, but again great for wee head person , traps heat like thinsulate but breathable comfort all around, good value gear and most comfortable from the rest I purchase previously , only a haircut for better fit on me, thnx KS.

Mouth zipper, ear circles for extra warmth, covers around the eyes super well. Excellent for winter, very effective. I like combining it with the Swedish Military Neck Scarf as they're similar colors and together make a very warm combo. Review by James (Posted on 12/16/2016)

I thought this would be like all other surplus Balaclavas, but all other surplus Balaclavas sure aren't Italian! This is perfect for my next loadout, very dark green, and the zipper is low profile so you don't have a complete metal mouth and can drink without exposing yourself to the elements. Nice form fit, comes down the bridge of your nose and fits like a comfortable, soft head sock. Not to mention padded-like circles over your ears. It's a little piece of surplus heaven. Treat yourself. Review by Edwin (Posted on 5/13/2016)

Again, a great price point for a great product.
Purchased this thinking I could smoke while dealing with the snow.... Great! I'll leave all the blowing to her , then I can zip her trap shut, what a concept.... Leave it to the Italians, for this one.

This is a nice lightweight balaclava. The mouth zipper is perfect if you want to take a drink, or (if you're using it while running in winter, like I will) you can "free" your mouth up to get some better airflow. As noted in another review, the mustache guard is awesome (I have a goatee).

Note that these are hand wash only, no dryer or ironing (from what I can make out of the care label in Italian).

Thanks, KS!!

Very nice material. Fits great. I love the zipper mouth with a mustache guard. Nice having an extra layer over the ears. This is one item that I will order extras of to put away for later, or to give to friends. Love it. Review by Jeffrey (Posted on 4/2/2015)
