When the ridgeline above your favorite chute looks like a cresting wave in an offshore breeze, you'll be happy you brought the Smartwool Balaclava as backup. Pull it out, and you'll doubt that it has the nuts for the weather. Put it on underneath your beanie and doubt no longer--thin as it is, the Balaclava's superfine Merino wool is an excellent insulator. It doesn't stifle your head or block your hearing like its thicker fleece brethren, nor will it change the fit of your helmet. What it does is take the sharp edge off the wind, shield your chin and ears from frostbite, and maintain its temperature-regulating properties even if it gets wet. And when the sun comes out, it stuffs back in your pocket without looking like a dinosaur egg.
Full face protection and warmth, Smartwool's NTS Mid 250 Balaclava turns freezing days nice and toasty. Made entirely from merino wool, this balaclava serves you by itself or underneath of a helmet to really keep you warm. PRODUCT FEATURES:
