Best fitting balaklava I've used. It does a great job concealing facial features and breaking up the head/neck area sometimes left out of a hunter's camouflage. I first purchased the balaklava in cipher before exchanging for the new specter pattern (better for spring turkey IMO).
This leaf balaclava was perfect. Not only did I kill a turkey but on one occasion, I was kneeling down near a tree but not against it calling every 5-10 minutes to locate a gobbler and a hen turkey walked 10 yards in front of me feeding and looking around and did not notice me at all. I was astounded. Incredible turkey hunting accessory that everyone needs. I have paired it with the leafy suit and it is a great combo. Unlike other reviewers, I did not have a problem wearing it without a ballcap. I have an enormous head. No headwear fits me very well and this thing was an easily adjustable fit that fit me and my fiance (who has a normal head).
Just buy it, I have hands down never had such good stalks!
Much better than a hood since it rotates with your head separately from your jacket. Fits over a ball cap for early season or a heavy fleece or wool cap for cold weather .
I love it. I’ve used many brands and even made my own. The material is remarkably breathable. I live in Texas and it is hot and humid. I can actually wear this in June/July pig hunting and not have a heat stroke. The attachment of the hat brim is awesome. I use a topless fishing hat under it so the heat can escape and you can’t beat it.
Simply the most perfect balaclava made. Best with a cap,
Ultimate concealment for spring turkeys. Great quality. I found it to fit better with a hat underneath which I prefer anyways. Not much else to say but just buy it!
The Phantom Leafy suit is unbelievable. I rarely go on any hunt in Illinois with out it. First Lite somehow figured how to print their bad ass patterns on a bad ass 3d system and made it look amazing. The breathable mesh lets me wear nothing but a FL merino short sleeve top during early October bow hunts. When the temps drop the sizing of the Phantom Leafy Suit is such that allows me to keep wearing this awesome piece all season long. This system is a must have.
This is an excellent piece, especially when paired with the jacket.However, for me at least, the balaclava fits better if I am wearing a cap underneath it.The addition of a fabric strip on the underside of the upper facial opening, one that could be slipped over the peak of the cap, would make this the perfect piece.
I use it for turkey and archery deer. Very breathable so you don't get hot. The 3d leafy design is great at breaking up the human profile. I have had turkeys stare at me from in close and not really get spooked
