Patagonia Capilene™ Air Balaclava

Not what I expected!

These are definitely not like the old Balaclavas that you used to sell! The old ones from approximately 25 years ago were awesome and I was hoping to get something similar. No offense but I prefer your competitors Balaclavas now.

We're sorry to hear this wool-capilene blend balaclava has been a disappointment Mike! We do appreciate your feedback and hope you find the product you need. We'll be happy to [help]( you return this one!

Very warm, but very lightweight

Great for most weather conditions even as lightweight as it is. Even when it gets frozen due to getting wet, it kept my face warm. Drys and thaws quickly.

Very soft and warm

I like that it's thin, so easy to wear and breathable on long hikes outdoors. And very warm and soft.

It works

Cuts the wind. Works for what I need it for. Easy trail hikes and walks on the beach. A little scratchy but better then having cold nose and ears.

Excellent Balaclava

Neck fit is nice and loose, no strangulation. I wear a large hat and this fits great, neck is a little long but i find this to be the case with most balaclavas. Would recommend and will purchase again if necessary.

Super Warm and Lightweight

If you have super short hair, this is a must have. So lightweight and easy to pull off and on. I wear this on cold days while walking my dog. Keeps my head and neck warm with no bulk.

Liked the old one better

I got this to replace one I lost that was purchased maybe 5 seasons ago. The fabric of this model holds moisture more and gets soggier than its predecessor. Still better than other balaclavas I have tried

Thanks for the review! We'd recommend checking out our [Worn Wear website]( if you're interested in finding another past season version.

Very warm

Reliable performer in the right temperature zone

Added this piece to the Capilene Air bottoms & crew already used as base layers for winter cycling and hiking. Moisture build up during heavy exertion is minimized next to the skin keeping the comfort level high for temps near freezing .

Essential for the cold blustery Northeast winter. Niiiiice and warming.

Cozy warm and cute!

Love the pattern AND the quality! Perfect for a run in icy temperatures!
