Details

The Sirocco Stretch Balaclava is ready for anything. When the windchills are off the chart and you're genuinely concerned about your exposed skin, this is the way to go. Polartec's® Wind Pro® fabric feels all soft and stretchy, but it has four times the wind resistance of normal fleece, while still retaining 85% of the breathability. We matched this great fabric with an incredibly versatile design: in standard format, you'll get full coverage of your head and neck, with just enough of an opening so you can still see and function in the full brunt of the storm. When things settle down a bit, you can roll the lower part up to form a watch cap, or yank the top down to have just a neck gaiter.
It was this multi-functional aspect that made the design popular in the Crimean War, and in fact is named for the Battle of Balaclava in 1854 (made famous in Tennyson's poem "The Charge of the Light Brigade"). And while things didn't go especially well for the British during that episode, it wasn't for lack of protection from the elements. 
The flat-lock seams we use in the body of the Sirocco fit flush and smooth under your ski helmet, climbing helmet, or paddling helmet. The four-way stretch helps prevent gaps and cold spots, and the durable outer finish resists snags and pulls.
You might wonder why your companion went out and bought a hat, a neck gaiter, AND a facemask when this balaclava functions as all three. But then again, ours is "not to reason why."
Machine washable.
