I got my cold weather Baclava today. This piece is awesome. Super warm and comfortable on your head. I like how the stitching is for the mouth and nose flap and the reduced ear coverings. I can't wait to field test it. I wish firstite made one in black for blind huts, I would dref buy a black and blaze orange if made available. Super happy with product. Ignore the size as I believe its a one size fits most.
This has become my new go to cold weather headgear. It is warm, wind resistant and keeps you dry without impeding your hearing in any way. I’ve tried many others but this is definitely the best balaclava I’ve ever owned.
Like many buying first lite gear, I’m a Michigan late season deer hunter. Being cold is something that you take as normal. This was the first piece of firstlite gear I bought and after two seasons of use I cannot recommend this any higher. The insulation combined with the merino over the face is frankly genius. The guys that design this actually hunt and it shows. Nothing at cabelas, bass pro, field and stream, Sitka, you name it produces quality like first lite. This thing is warm, warm warm. Don’t hunt late season without it.
Comfortable balaclava. I wear a size 7 1/2 hat and this balaclava fit perfectly. I really like that the mouth covering is attached in the back rather than being one solid piece. This allows the mouth covering to be pulled down to use my grunt tube without the mask being pulled down over my eyes. It’s warm enough for the late season rut yet light enough to not cause any hearing hindrance.
Ive bought so much headwear over the years. Most were plenty warm but lacked in other areas. This BARACLAVA is the best. Warm. Can wear glasses and the most important, you can hear well
A must have. I have all kinds of nice hunting clothing and I think this thing might be my favorite.
I’m so thankful that I included this in my kit for a September moose hunt in Alaska. I wore it daily while in the field. It was the perfect amount of warmth in 28-40 degree weather, covered all the right places, and protected from mosquitos and gnats. I could hear very well out of it, no itch, protected from wind, and was easy to adjust. I kept it on as a neck warmer when I took it off my head and I was able to cover and uncover my nose and mouth with ease. My only concern is that the wool and some stitching started to pill up and fray after two weeks of continuous use. Hopefully it holds up. I’m still giving it 5 stars because I’d have never imagine leaving it at home on another cold weather hunt.
Best hunting mask I’ve ever owned . When it gets cold this will keep you warm . I threw out all my other masks and use this exclusively when temps drop under 40 . Hopefully they continue to sell this item because I will be using it for the rest of my hunting life . The wool on the inside is extremely warm and comfortable on the skin.
This thing's awesome. Got as a Christmas gift this year and was able to test it out in Michigan's UP while ice fishing. It fits perfectly, not too tight or loose, the face cover being made of Merino wool is a great touch, along with Merino around the ears so you can hear. Everything else is windproof, stayed nice and warm on the snowmobile ride to our fishing spot and while jigging outside the shanty. Couldn't have asked for anything better. Just buy it, you won't be disappointed.
Finally, a balaclava that fits! Snug, but not too tight. Easy pull down in the front and love that you can actually hear out of it! Tapered down the front and back to seal off your body heat. I am bald and usually 2-3 layers on my head. I hunted in low 30 degree temps with 20 mph winds in my face all night. I never had to put on another layer. Thank you, First Lite! Oh- and it's warm as hell. Buy it. You will not regret it.
