RATING AND REVIEWS

Setup right its a great facemask

4

Warm, allows easy breathing, doesn't fog googles I can snowmobile at -30c in this

Has a very specific need

I bought this intending to use it on denali. I tested it in CO last weekend with 15 degree temps and 20 mph winds. You need well below zero wind chills to need this. Otherwise a buff will suffice and is much more comfortable. The mask isn't comfortable and takes adjustment and some getting used to. The entire mask is Gore wind stopper which works as designed, but it doesn't stretch. The cut around the neck needs redesigned to be more conforming.

Windtested!

I bought the Gorilla balaclava for helicopter big mammal capture which is done with the doors removed so it is very windy. Haven't tried them yet in the field, but confident they will be great. Not too warm but possible to put a second layer underneath, but went in blizzard -30 / -40 C 40-60 km wind to cross-country ski and hike around and didn't feel a thing. Just worried that since it is not preshaped / tapered around the side of the nose, it might fog up the ski gogles with my breath.

Works great one adjusted

Hard to adjust outside in the cold. If you put it on in front of a mirror before going outside, no prob. Otherwise things can get a bit frustrating. I use it for ski and it works great.

I love this product. I wear skiing, snow shoeing, even under a helmet during the Alaskan winter. Provides good warmth and wind protection. The layers (removable face mask) can be a bit confusing at times to get the Velcro lined up while wearing, but after some adjusting its good to go.

US

lots of velcro

4

I bought this online to resist fierce north shore weather and give me more adaptability than my Sonic balaclava. The Gorilla needs to evolve a bit before I stop looking for full protection and fog free sunglasses. This is not a pull on balaclava. It needs to be fastened and unfastened every time. Hard to fasten symmetrically and several velcro closures to manage. Don't wear wool or near all the hooks!

great product

Great product, worth the money, the multiple ways to set it up and open it up, allow for ease in conversation, extra protection when you need it. Good for blocking wind and protecting face well moving. Sometimes hard to line the face mask part up so it sits correctly (some practice taking off and putting on) Lacks insulation so can be used in shoulder seasons or when Temperatures are not too low. Wear another layer with it if temperatures are cold (-15*C or lower)

I lost the nose cover and aks to buy a new one on the internet site of outdoor research THEY ANSWER BY SENDING ME A NEW ONE FREE OF CHARGE. Want a nice way to take care of customer.
