Outdoor Research WINDSTOPPER Gorilla Balaclava Reviews:


Superior product for the extreme cold!

Superior face cover for extreme cold. My wife and I used these in St. Paul, MN and Madison, WI in early February for an outdoor photo shoot of the state capitols. Temperatures were down to about -20 with wind chill. These face covers were lightweight and breathable. Not really a negative, but perhaps have a mirror or a buddy to align the Velcro on neck and nose covers. For best results, maybe a thick beanie over it. I highly recommend this item for folks working/playing outdoors in the extreme cold!

Great Balaclava

Confortable and fits really well. Used it under helmet for snowboarding. Also, it keeps your ears and face warm. Did not feel any cool air leaks either.

I imagine that it can be used off the slopes for sports or cold outings.

Also, this is very versitile as you can use it it different configurations (e.g. can keep nose section off).

Worth it.

item works very well, because it has a velcro closure you are able to tighten it to your liking. Very comfortable. Nose piece detaches. Only improvement I could think would be to provide some type of button or way to attach it to the headpiece to prevent losing it.

I am a ski patroller in Montana where the weather can, at times, be relentness and this balaclava is a life saver. The wind can blow upwards of forty miles an hour when the temperature is 0 or less and protection is a must, this garment performs beyond expectations!

Boston Bike Balaclava

Bought as an early birthday gift for my sister who bikes 5 miles to work daily in Boston. She absolutely loves it! really likes the mouth and nose openings as they do not ice up badly.

Good product

Completely blocks the wind. Fits tightly. On the downside it slips up over my mouth if I don't put it on exactly right.
