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.
I got this before going on a camping/hiking trip in the mountains of Colorado. The average altitude we were at was around 10,500ft with a max about 13,000t. A large cold front hit and the temps were in the teens for a high. At one point the temperature went to a bitter -11 Fahrenheit with 20mph winds. This performed better than I thought it would. With the hard gusts you felt a little wind make it through but other than that it was fantastic.
Glad to hear our Kodiak Fleece Brushed Balaclava - Expedition layer, gave you protection against the bitter cold mountains of Colorado.

With out wind block material in it, I don't care how thick the wool is the wind blows through it.
Overall a well made piece of gear, however, it fits to large on my head. Other wool balaclavas I own don’t have this issue. I do like that is has enough material to tuck in my sweater, which is great because it doesn’t come out when I look up or move my head around. Craftsmanship and quality of the material is good, which is very important to me. If you have a huge head and neck you will love this balaclava.

Temperatures were in single digits and it did what I purchased it for!!
Thank you for the great review and keep warm!
This is the balaclava to reach for when the temps drop below 0°F. I really like the construction of this 'clava, but unless it's extremely cold, or if you're very static (think ice fishing), it can be too warm. I was hoping to use it for skiing, but honestly it's just too thick for all but the most brutally cold days!
