    Okay here is why you might consider this unadorned, cheap balaclava over the more expensive alternatives:

    - slightly more generous eye opening, enabling use of regular or protection glasses
    - overall more generous fit. I dont feel like my head is in compression shorts
    - more generous fit also means my nose is not being squished to the front of my face
    -shorter neck area. Allows the tall collar of a parka to zip all the way up and seal properly without extra fleece bunching up under it and strangling you
    - lighter fleece allows you with slight adjustment to indeed wear a cap over the balaclava. You might not reckon this matters, but it does
    - even with lighter or “thinner” fleece, I just snowblowed 800 square feet of driveway from winter storm hurcules in 25 below wind chill and snow blowing back onto me like a blizzard and my head did not get cold in the slightest
    - ZIPPER. I can take a break, unzip the zipper and drink fluids to stay hydrated without having to un-layer everything
    - zipper does have a light storm flap on the inside, so no, the zipper will not chafe your chin, lips or nose

    Recommendation: BUY IT. No, wait. At this price, BUY TWO in case they are discontinued.

    This balaclava with a zip is fantastic because when you unzip it you no longer look like a bank robber. It subdue gives a honest degree of protection from the elements with the zip open and you can zip it up when your not near any banks. Fleece is a very comfortable material but this one is thin so not for farthest cold. But its well worth the money and i ordered another as a spare. The zip is lined on the inside so you dont feel the cold metal. I saw other balaclavas with zips + with beaks on them like on a cap. These make you look even less ‘terrifying’ but they were made out of bloody acrylic! which is really itchy and i don’t know how people wear them.

    There are surpass balaclavas out there but this one has the zip, is cheap and is perfectly alright and i would recommend it to anyone who likes balaclavas but doesn’t want to be mistaken for a robber.

    fantastic covers!, Development 4, 2009

    I bought three of the balaclava covers for my family and they are fantastic! Now let me tell you why- they are very lightweight so you don’t have that heavy hat feeling. Simple on and off and the zipper in front allows you to have the amount of coverage that you desire. A small child can even wear this in the cold. And really anyone can wear these. I highly recommend this cover for the cold weather!
