Windstopper Balaclava

Gore Wear's Windstopper Balaclava protects your head, face, and neck from the bitterly cold winds that whip around you while you're trying to focus on pedaling. A Gore Windstopper membrane seals out these cruel gusts so you can retain your body heat, while the synthetic fabric allows vapor to escape so you don't get chilled by your own perspiration. Thermo-stretch construction uses stretch panels to ensure you have your full range of motion without sacrificing coverage, and flatlock seams ensure comfort by minimizing pressure points and eliminating chafing.
  • Balaclava for cycling in the coldest conditions
  • Gore Windstopper membrane seals out cold gusts
  • Breathable, synthetic fabric manages perspiration
  • Thermo-stretch encourages your full range of motion
  • Flatlock seams minimize pressure points

Must have for winter riding

I have used a couple of these all of last winter for riding in the cold and it does an excellent job of blocking wind, but allows me to breathe naturally. The cut on the nose faces away from my riding glasses, so it doesnt fog up my lens. The only issue is trying to hydrate and fuel during the ride. It’s difficult to pull the mask down below the chin with heavy riding gloves, hydrate and then pull it back on your nose. I usually stop to fuel/hydrate, but its better than any other balaclava which fogs up my lens, difficult to breathe, have to keep fiddling etc.

Pros and Cons

Runs small

I use this for cycling. Pros: windproof and warm, even when wet. Cons: Runs small. perforated mouth opening needed to be cut larger with sewing scissors to enhance breathing, otherwise glasses get fogged up.

This face mask is great for keeping face, neck, and ears warm. The breathing holes are perfect for keeping the mask dry. Mask fits well and stays in place.

This Balaclava is absolutely great for keeping your head and face warm. I did a short run in 24 degree weather today. I highly recommend this product. Backcountry is my preferred shopping place. If this product was currently available, I would purchase this again.
