This OR balaclava is more contoured than most to make it fit better. A stretch-mesh-covered breathing port graces the front since WindStopper fleece blocks all air flow. This allows vast amounts of your breath to escape forward rather than being deflected upward towards your goggles or glasses.

OR makes great gear, this balaclava does not fit tight enough though. Specifically it needs to be tighter around the mouth area not around the neck itself. Windstopper is a must, they do a good job with that.
