Rated 4 out of 5 by SunnySouthFlorida Soft and good fit
I am an adult but I like color so I thought I'd try it. The large fits perfect. It is really soft. Winter is just beginning so I have only used it once. I have washed it and it survived the washer it great form.

Rated 5 out of 5 by vselvaraj Excellent for a kid
It keeps my son's ears and neck (and most of his face) covered with just one piece. Exactly the product I was looking for.
I will definitely keep buying this product as he grows.
My son is 5 1/2 yrs old and I got him a large, so this should come for another winter.

Rated 3 out of 5 by tsspar Just average not up to LLBean quality
This item finally came after being backordered and I am very disappointed. it is very flimsy feeling and rolls under when put over my childs head. We have two other hats from LLBean of the same type ordered years ago and this is no where near as good.
I know llbean will take it back if I send it back but my daughter still wants to keep it as it is hers and in the color she wants or she would be using the old ones we had
It seams to be happening more and more that llbean stuff is just not up to the quality it used to be. Sad for us as It has been the go to for winter stuff. :(

Rated 4 out of 5 by csc123 Fits as expected
After reading other reviews, my biggest concern was the fit. I ordered a Medium for a 9 year old girl with an average head size. It fits well, with enough room to grow into this winter, and perhaps next year. The length is good too, covering her neck.

by llbeanfordkids Awesome for skiing or any other outdoor activity
We got this mostly for sledding or playing outside in the snow. My son loved this hat right away and really wanted to wear it during skiing. I was afraid it wouldn't fit under his helmet but it did. The instructor mentioned that it was a great hat for skiing. He went skiing 3 days in a row and never had a problem with it and it also kept him warm. His first day the condition was awful. Freezing rain and winds 15mph. I think if he had another hat on he wouldn't have stayed out for his entire lesson.My son also mentioned that while riding on the chair lift the wind picked up but his hat kept him warm.This is also the hat he chooses when sledding and playing outside in the storm. I think it runs small. My son is 6 years old and i got a large and it fits him perfect. A Medium would have fit him but it would have been snug I think. Great product!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by MrsSwede Just what we needed
This does an excellent job protecting my daughter's face from the wind and cold. It came on the day we were getting a snowstorm so perfect timing. Very soft and my daughter loves it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by pahomeschoolmom Great, but sizing recommendations are off...
Love this face mask, as others have said it is a tad short in the back--comes just a little past the base of the neck but a coat should cover that up. After checking the sizing guidelines, I determined that my daughter (age 7, average size) would need a large; her head size is 21.5". Knowing that usually Bean's clothing runs large, I took a chance & ordered a medium. Glad I did...she would have swam in the large! It's still loose enough for her to pull on by herself, yet snug so it doesn't slip. The open part comes up to just cover the bottom of her nose. My daughter's ONLY complaint is that now she has a harder time eating snow, since the mouth is covered!! Actually, this may become an issue, since it's her FAVORITE thing to do--when we got the mask, we only had old, dirty snow left...once the fresh stuff falls, she's either gonna be pulling the mask down or trying to get the snow up underneath to her mouth!! All in all, a GREAT way to protect your kids' faces from the cold & wind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mommylove comfortable and warm!
My 7 year-old wanted a balaclava for the winter in NJ--he has had so much fun running around outside and sledding with the added warmth of this "hat"--thanks LLBean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MsKMB Perfect for cold winters
I bought this when I realized that no matter what I did, my sons' necks would be exposed while they played outside. My kids are ages 4 and 3 and I bought a large. The fit is not as big as I thought it would be which is fine #they pull the mask below their chins#. The balaclava stays put during their active play. It is light and warm. Another highly recommended product from LLB!

Rated 4 out of 5 by dan920 Nice but a little short
This is a great weight fleece, very warm but not bulky. Fits under a hood or helmet. The one issue is the overall length -- it's short enough that it comes untucked from inside my daughter's jacket, and leaves a gap where wind can sneak in.
