BlackStrap The Hood Balaclava - tweed black
Its a good product, but its slightly tight in some areas. Also tried the Adult neck tube and that doesnt even stay up with goggles on. Still searching for the right product for me. Its good quality, but for me it didnt work out.

BlackStrap The Hood Balaclava - steel
Super warm! Love the hinge! Wind doesn't really penetrate so I feel very shielded from the elements. The mouth area is very breathable and somehow it never freezes like other balaclavas do. Material game = STRONG!
