Montbell's Down Balaclava is a versatile and ultralight solution to unanticipated cold snaps and harsh winter conditions. With 3-way adjustment and a wide baffle, the Down Balaclava fits very well with any and all layers, and provides an extraordinary amount of warmth. The construction is top-notch, and the 800-fill down used in the Balaclava results in an impressively small pack size.
In use, the volume adjustment gave a comfy fit without being restrictive, and I found the Down Balaclava best used when layered with a hardshell jacket in blizzard conditions, and as an extra layer in the sleeping bag. I would prefer that the stuffsack was integrated into the Balaclava, as the tiny bag provided proved easy to misplace.
