The Swiss Army Wool Balaclava is a military surplus unissued cold weather mask. The effectiveness of balaclavas has been established for years, there is simply no better base layer to protect your face, head, and neck from the cold. Why not get a military grade balaclava for your winter gear?
Very well made, wool balaclava. I would recommend wearing this with the Swiss neck scarf, for a complete head and neck coverage. It's even stretchy enough to uncover whole face, and hook it underneath the chin, but it would be a bit tight to wear it like that.
MILITARY ISSUED COLD WEATHER MUST HAVE-ITS THIN ENOUGH TO STUFF IN ANY POCKET-QUITE WARM AND MUCH APPRECIATED IN EXTREMELY COLD CONDITIONS-THANKS-KILO OUT
for the price I was unsure about this, but it is a superb balaclava, great for protecting your face from the wind. I used it while snow blowing this past winter (I live in Maine) and it exceeded my expectations.
This balaclava is pretty sweet. Gray/blue in color, soft and warm, and snug enough hold itself well on your face without being annoying. It's sort of a stretchy wool, and the wool isn't the kind that's itchy. I'm going to use this for snowblower duty and jogging this winter. Great deal on this. Also, don't forget to order a matching neck scarf!
These are great little balaclavas. When its cold wool is king. These things make being outside in very cold Temps so much easier. Grab one while you still can. Also worth mentioning they don't make you itch like a lot of wool does.
Nice for outside winter jobs like shoveling snow. Only complaint is that it was a little snug, but not terrible
Will be using this during outdoor activities, including winter jogs. Fits real nice. Feels solid and warm.
