I bought this for winter hiking and ended up using it when walking the dog early in the morning when I had a cold and didn't want to beathe the cold are. It's comfortable, fits well (I have a small head), and the part that covers the lower half of your face stays put. I think this might be a model that MH has discontinued, so if you like what you see, buy it. Well worth the money.
A balaclava is a must during any winter outings. I bought this and it does a good job at keeping the face and head warm.... Only problem is that you can have some fogging issues because there are no vent holes around the nose or mouth. Without vents the warm air is pushed up to the goggles or glasses. I still use this as a spare, but I did buy the MHW Desna Balaclava and have been very happy with it.
