The Ninja Balaclava is a light-weight, breathable and high stretch fleece balaclava, designed to offer maximum protection against the elements in harsh conditions.
Topping out on the Cairngorm plateau in a white out and high winds can literally take your breath away. In such situations the Ninja Balaclava provides protection from the elements, helping to fend off frost nip and ice whipped up by the wind, meaning you can focus on the task in hand, whether it's navigation or stashing your rope and gear before the long slog back to civilisation.

Rab's Ninja Balaclava provides solid protection for harsh conditions. The combination of stretchy fleece fabric for warmth and comfort with Polartec Windbloc across the face for protection is excellent. At such a low weight this balaclava does a great job of balancing the warmth and protection. There are warmer options out there and there are more protective options too but this strikes a nice balance.
The opening for the eyes is big enough for an unhindered field of vision whilst being small enough to fit under goggles. There are perforations for the mouth and nose that allow you to vent moist air which is a huge benefit in cold, harsh conditions. The windproof section across the face does a great job of protecting you and is probably the best feature of this balaclava.
