Rated 4 out of 5 by SocialStudiesTraveler Good Protection, OK fit
Just used this skiing at Blue Mountain PA last weekend during Polar Vortex cold weather. Ranged from 11-17 degrees, with winds on the first day at 30 mph, but between 5-10mph thereafter. Balaclava fit very well under ski helmet and my head/neck/face didn't feel cold. (I did use a neck gaiter as well) Stretchy fabric allows you to pull down under the chin to avoid breathing through it the whole time.
Only minor suggestion would be more elastic through the neck hem, found it to be a tad loose, but with the neck gaiter as well didn't matter too much. Am hoping for warmer weather won't need the gaiter and can just use this.

Wasn't too sure what to expect but needed something to help me keep warm with the winds/storms of the Dakotas......
Lightweight, breathable, and very warm, not constricting; fits great and easy to store in your pocket-for those times when the weather " changes on a dime"...

Rated 4 out of 5 by seniorcitizen6748 Comfortable, warm, good quality fabric
Good quality and just as I expected from L.L.Bean, just a little more expensive than it needs to be, my husband ordered one made out of the same material from someone else and it was of the same quality but the price was half what I paid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by clairedelune really helps with the cold
My husband needed this for his bike rides. It fits comfortably under his bike helmet and keeps him warm and comfortable.

I am happy with this, it helps to keep me warm, however, it keeps sliding on my head, and starts to cover up one of my eyes, then I have to re-position it. Regardless of this, I am happy that I bought this, and I do use it. I would recommend this to others, it is great on a cold, windy day or night.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Paintslinger Motorcycle Winter Protection
Last year I bought one to pull over my head and neck to protect me from the frigid air that can pierce underneath my motorcycle helmet on cold days. This is thin enough to fit well inside my helmet while keeping me warm. Without this I would not be able to ride at all on some of the cold days that i have.
I plan to order more of them to store in my pick up truck and car. Might even give some to the kids for stocking stuffers as they do a lot of hiking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by QualityShopper So disappointed...
Disappointed...Went online today to order 2 more balaclavas for my son and grandson but LLB is sold out! Bought 1 for my 73 year old husband who walks 4 miles 3-4 times a week. He said it keeps everything covered and warm in our recent windy 20+ degree days. Comfortable even with his knit hat over it. No need for neck scarf. Throws it in the washer; hangs it to dry and it's good to go!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BoomBotz Polartec Power Dry Balaclava - Warm and comfy
Easy on and off, even over wool watch cap. Little restriction on hearing and the extra warmth more than offsets this. Stretch band keeps it tight to face with no pinching under the chin. If you're out in windy, cold weather, this is a great product to reduce that uncomfortable wind chill.
