Lightweight and Comfortable
This balaclava is nice, it's lightweight, unnoticable in a pack. It's also amazingly comfortable, very soft, unless of course you tighten it too much. There is one drawstring for adjustment that attaches to both sides of the eye opening, and meets behind the head, where it is attached to the balaclava by an elastic loop, which is permanently attached. This balaclava is nice and roomy, good for people with large heads. My hat size is 7 3/4, and this gives me a good amount of room. Of course it is easily tightened with the drawstring, so dust or bugs are no problem. It can be worn in 7 ways that I can easily think of, but I'm sure others could be found. It feels fairly warm, though I have not been able to wear it in snow/cold yet. Also, no seams rub against your head. The only warning, if you have a tiny head, this may not fit well.
