For the big-time task of stopping wind and icy air, nothing beats a warm balaclava. Ours is made from Capilene® 4, the warmest and most breathable baselayer in the Capilene family. It is soft, stretchy and compressible, with a smooth jersey face that glides beneath layers and a brushed-fleece interior to insulate, wick moisture and rest smoothly against the skin. The face opening fits above your mouth or under your chin, depending upon the coverage you require. Made of 3.8-oz proprietary performance Polartec® Power Grid™ fabric, with Polygiene® permanent odor control. Fabric is bluesign® approved.

Polygiene® odor control permanently protects your garments from smelling like a middle school locker room. Sweat itself is odorless, but it creates the conditions that bacteria need to multiply, and some of those bacteria produce odors. Polygiene permanent odor control stops the growth of odor-causing bacteria on fabrics, so you can wear more and wash less.
Active only on the fabric surface, Polygiene permanent odor control does not interfere with perspiration or with the skin’s natural bacterial flora. Polygiene particles are more than 100 times larger than nanoparticles and therefore are too large to penetrate to the skin’s barrier. Polygiene-treated fabrics have received Medical Class 1 approval in Europe, the same class that includes bandages.
