Mountain Hardwear's Alpine Balaclava is a well designed and functional piece to keep your head cosy in the worst of conditions. The stiffened peak and neck gaiter are the stand out features.
Mountain Hardwear says:
A no-fuss, simple balaclava that is built for burly conditions with snug fitting and technical Polartec® Power Stretch® fabric.
Mountain Hardwear's Alpine Balaclava provides all over head coverage for when conditions turn gnarly. Power stretch is a tried and tested fabric that wicks superbly and is super soft on the skin. The neck gaiter is a useful feature meaning there should be no bare skin from jacket to balaclava.
The stiffened peak is a neat feature keeping snow and the like out of your eyes. The Alpine Balaclava is one size fits all, I have a small head so it wasn't as snug as it could be but was still a very functional fit.
