The lightest 100% merino balaclava we stock. The Oasis delivers excellent breathability, temperature regulation and moisture management in a low bulk and lightweight package.
Made with 200gm merino jersey fabric, the Oasis Balaclava provides soft, breathable, odor-resistant performance and protection in super-cold conditions. The overlapped opening provides ample protection from the elements, and the front ventilation flap improves airflow during aerobic pursuits.
Inspired by nature, icebreaker harnesses the performance qualities of natural fibers to offer an alternative to clothing based on petrochemical synthetics. Merino is an annually renewable fiber that naturally resists odors, keeps you cool when it’s hot and warm when it’s not, and lets your skin breathe for comfort all day, every day.
Icebreaker's Oasis Balaclava is a super comfortable piece of head wear that is perfect for storing in your pocket for changing conditions. With a durable feel balanced with low bulk and high warmth this hat works so well you end up taking it as a 'just-in-case' more often than you'd expect. With excellent breathability, temperature regulation and moisture management this balaclava performs well in a wide range of conditions.
The merino provides a surprising amount of warmth to weight, works just as well at keeping you warm when wet and has all the usual benefits of merino you would expect. This is a versatile balaclava designed to perform as a super packable emergency piece or as a helmet liner.
