This is very comfortable. I bought this because I needed the versitility; full or partial face/head coverge or no face/head coverage. It works in all the ways described except as a beanie' but that certainly did not bother me.

This balaclava is cool and will keep you warm during really cold days/nights. However, the only problem that I encountered (a big one) was while the very first time I tried it on, it ripped! Yes, it did! I didn't force it or anything but it did rip. I'd say for the price of it, it should have better workmanship -- much better! Look at something else if you're looking for a good and reliable balaclava.

This worked well on a very, very cold weekend in New Hampshire. One problem I had was that "loose-fabric-over-nose" plus "glasses" equals "foggy vision." I ordered a bit larger than I needed because of some of the reviews that said balaclavas are sometimes too tight. But if you wear glasses, tight is what you want. That was my fault. This balaclava was warm, I could hear very well (didn't notice any change really). Happy overall.

This garment is designed for extreme conditions. The fabric is heavy. If you are going to spend hours days or weeks in arctic conditions, this garment is appropriate. Placing googles over the balaclava will provide complete protection. This garment is probably overkill for the cold day urban environment. One aspect of the garment that is attractive is the ability to pull it down into a neck warmer.

bought one of these (M)for my husband who has to work on planes outside of the hanger sometimes. He loves it! I bought another for a friend who also does a lot of work outdoors and he also loves it. Had to exchange it for a large, though. Use your judgment regarding size.
