Great piece of kit (Review by Nomad)

Great functional design, easy to flip back and wear as a neck warmer or just pull down under the chin when it gets a bit warm. This first turned me on to OR.

Need Another Color Option (Review by Sonically Amazing)

This is my regular go-to balaclava. It's warm, comfortable, and completely prevents the wind from hitting your face. Flat seams prevent chaffing and the mesh at the mouth is perfectly suited for heavy or light breathing. I only gave 4 stars because as much as I enjoy dressing up like a ninja, I do like to switch it up and not look like a guy every once in a while. Green, blue, purple, orange, ANY color besides just the "standard" black would be AMAZING! Thanks OR for always producing great products!

Use while hunting and under a motorcycle helmet (Review by Warm and completely windproof)

I bought this to keep my face warm with an open-face motorcycle helmet, and have found excellent use for it while coyote hunting in -0-degree, blizzard conditions. The Polartec fleece is fantastic, and the clever cut and fabric of the hearing panels and breathing port allow me to hear and breathe freely without suffering the cold on my lips & ears.

My "go to" armour (Review by Old Guide)

When the elements turn really nasty I depend on my Sonic. If it is extremely cold and windy I add a Peruvian hat over-top. For times when I am breathing hard and sunglasses fog up I switch to ski goggles and all is clear. I love the feeling of being driven to my limits travelling into the unexpected storm within my own self-contained warm dry envelope of safety and confidence. The Sonic is essential. It pulls on or off fast and fits right. The breathing port is a small but welcome advance in reducing condensation.
