Lightweight and breaths really well. The only issue I had with it is that you can't pull it down to be worn around the neck. It's either the whole head or nothing.

Balaclava fits very well when the face hole is completely open. Once you close it leaving just a small gap for your eyes there is definitely some extra fabric at the sides of the hole. Not a huge deal though just looks a little strange. I should mention that I put this on over a hat with the bill coming out... At that point that little bit of extra fabric made complete sense. There could probably be some better positioning of fabric to allow you to stretch this under your chin so you can throw a copenhagen in a little easier.

As a balaclava, it fits well and is comfortable to wear. However, this material has almost no stretch, so you can't pull it down around your neck (the face opening won't stretch enough to do that) and you can't pull it under your chin and leave it there if you want to eat or drink something. I love Sitka's designs and fabrics, but they miss small but important details on some products. This is one of them.

Product Technology


Layering is a science with our CORE system of next-to-skin products. Each of the fabric weights—light, mid, and heavy—wicks away moisture to keep you warm and dry, while Polygiene® technology safely and permanently neutralizes odors using naturally antimicrobial silver salt.
