Outdoor Research WS Gorilla Balaclava
I moved to Calgary from BC and needless to say I needed to be prepared for winter - after all in October one day it was 27 degrees Celsius (80 Fahrenheit) nnd the next day it was -5 (23 F) it got me thinking I needed to be prepared as I like to walk the hour to work.
So there was a week here -20 (-4 F) and windy but with this balaclava I really didn't feel a thing - it was like a wall of protection. One day I thought I would see how I could bear it sans balaclava but after 5-10 minutes the wind was just going through me like a knife so on went the balaclave and presto digito I was very comfortable.
It must be good if I came back here just to write the review. The added velcro piece for added face protection works like a charm although I need to adjust it at times bacause if not on just right my glasses can fog up.
Of not every time I come into a convience store I undo the velcro so they don't think I am there to rob them.
My first balaclava and it is highly recommended
I said it wasn't stylish but I am not Mr fashion - so who knows.
