Alpinestars Touring Winter Balaclava

Jan 08, 2012 View Comments by

Any time the temperature gets below 60 degrees, especially if the wind is blowing stronger than usual, my Touring Winter Balaclava is must-wear gear for a pleasant ride. The comfort goes beyond the wind barker and the warmth provided by the double-sided Lycra panels and the microfiber inner lining; it also offers a feeling of coziness so I can focus on the road and the ride itself. Because the Balaclava has a waterproof and windproof neck skirt that covers the collar of my jacket, it keeps my ears, neck and head warm. It isn’t very easy to put on or pull off, though, because the neck opening is tight. The nose cover piece tends to move, but its elasticity allows me to pull the nose and mouth cover under my chin and use it like an open-face balaclava.
