Warmest Balaclava You Will Own

BlackStrap The Expedition Hood
BlackStrap makes quality face masks and the expedition hood is no exception. I wasn’t a fan of balaclavas until I tried this one from BlackStrap. Fits great and easy to pull the mask up and down over my mouth without messing up my goggles. Was using this mask in 10 degree temps on a storm pow day and it kept me so warm. Was able to shred all day without freezing my beard off.

Kept me warm at -5F

BlackStrap The Expedition Hood - navy
Spent a cold week at Whitefish, MT, wore this every day out except for the day I lent it to my daughter. Worked great, I stayed comfortable all day outside. The only (expected) drawback is that the area over the mouth gets damp and can freeze, but you just hang it over a heat vent for 10 minutes and good to go.

BlackStrap The Expedition Hood - tactics limited print 1 (tweed grey)
Got this for my grandson for Christmas He is an average size young man but the fit was so tight he could hardly get it over his head. Said it was binding and uncomfortable. If this is supposed to be one size fits all then that is misleading. We had to return it.
Other than that it is very nice looking

Best face mask for cold weather!

BlackStrap The Expedition Hood
This hood is by far the warmest hood on the market, and will keep you cozy on the coldest storm days. I always keep this hood in my backpack in case the weather rolls in. However when the sun comes out, it does not at all get too warm. The extra material and compression in the expedition hood keep me much warmer than the normal hood.
