Why Merino Wool?
MACHINE WASH AND DRY
Total Easy Care (TEC) Merino apparel is designed for today's busy lifestyle. Total Easy Care Merino garments are all machine-washable, and are suitable for tumble drying.
Even after frequent laundering they retain an 'as new' appearance. They won't shrink, lose their shape, fade or color-bleed. They remain soft and comfortable for the life of the garment.
The fabric felt like silk, you can tell this is good quality wool but what made me surprised about this mask was how lightweight it was. I could roll it to fit in my pocket easily and it seemed like there was nothing there! Such a fantastic addition to winter gear. Highly recommend it!
Thanks for the great review! We're glad you found the Expedition - Balaclava 100% Merino Wool to be a great addition to your winter gear. The lightweight fabric makes it easy to pack and carry, and the quality of the wool is clear. We are happy to hear you agree!
Perfect for me. I wear this under my bike helmet on really cold days. It’s made all the difference. Comfortable to wear. Easy to wash.
Great to hear your 100% Merino Wool Balaclava - Expedition, has made all the difference under your bike helmet on cold days.
Thank you for the great review!
Both the lighter and heavy balaclava are the perfect head sock under my snowmachine helmet! I love that I don't have to use the synthetic material head socks.
I bought the expedition weight expecting it to be much more than it is. I feel that the expedition weight is more like what I expected the lightweight to be. It is very thin and not at all adequate for below freezing weather especially if there's any wind even a breeze. I will say that it is very comfortable and feels high quality.

I purchased this to use hiking and hunting in cold weather. I used it recently to hike up Mt Pierce and ended up taking it off after about 2 miles as I was warmer than preferred. It was about 10 degrees with no wind so I was fairly impressed with the performance. I also used it sitting in a tree stand and couldn't have been happier with the function.
