      Comments about Nashbar Thermal Balaclava:

      I ride 10 miles/16km to work and on my first time out I took it off after 3 miles/5km because it was restricting my breathing too much. At home I cut a hole for the mouth and stitched up the edges to make it stronger and that made all the difference! I've ridden in 20°F/-7°C and my face and ears were mercifully warm even though the fabric itself is quite thin which also means the helmet fits normally.

      Given that this site is for cyclists, it stands to reason that the likely purchaser is keen enough to cycle into the winter and keen cyclists go reasonably fast and therefore need to breathe a lot so I think they should come with a hole for the mouth by default. The hole also reduced but did not eliminate the problem of my glasses fogging up. Overall a great purchase.

          Just after receiving the great snowpocalyps of '16 hit. The balaclava is more comfortable than i anticipated, but honestly doesn't keep my ears and head as warm as the caps I would normally wear under my helmet. The face coverage is nice, it fits easily under a helmet and worked well with glasses.

                  Excellent product at a great price. I actually bought two - one for my commute to and from the gym in the morning and one for my commute to and from work.

                  The balaclava fits well underneath my helmet and does a superb job of keeping me warm, even when the wind has picked up.

                    Love my new 'mask'. Works exactly as I hoped it would. Love the material - not irritating at all. I forget it is on after I have been riding a short time.

                        it really is a must in cold temperatures, my neck was sweating even in 30's weather. you can cover your mouth or pull it under your chin, yes it fogs your sun glasses when you are stopping but it isn't an issue when you are biking... I wouldn't waste money on brand names, i'm hoping it is going to last as its only a seasonal item

                          Does what its supposed to; fits under helmet and face opening can be jockeyed around for more/less coverage. Comfy at 30 degrees just this AM. Can't beat it for the money.
