Take it off before you go into the bank.
The Giordana Roubaix Balaclava helps you keep your commuting routine going when the fierce winds of winter threaten the very core of your bicycle idealism. The plush-backed Roubaix fabric blocks wind, wicks sweat, and holds heat to keep you from freezing on your way to work.

- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: Runs small
As others have said it fits tight. I wear a 7 1/8" hat and the product is snug. It has stretched with time and I find it most comfortable wearing it just below the nose. Breathing through it is not bad. It is what is is. Midly wind resistant, cheap and small enough to get under snug helmets. It does exactly what i need it to do, and I would recommend it for anything down to about 15 degrees.
Small headed ninja.

I like how this balaclava looks. It makes you look like a ninja. I'm not sure about the fit though. If I try to wear it over my nose, it really squishes my nose down. Based on the picture, it looks like you're supposed to wear it over your nose. Maybe it is just for people with small heads?

Bought this for biking on the cold days but it's good to wear snowboarding too. The face hole is a really good size, fits under helmets no problem, stays dry, and the neck comes down at a really goof lenght.
Great for a small head/face
Fabric and weight is great. Unfortunately, cut is too tight. My one and only ride with it was uncomfortable due to the feeling that my face was being crushed. Would work well for a woman or smaller man. (I'm 6'2", 195 lbs.)
