Really good coverage on face and neck, love the fact that there are ear holes! Very comfortable, but I did get red cheeks after a day of wear. Might be I'm allergic to wool, not sure. But I still would wear anyways!
I have recently discovered First Lite when I bought a base layer from Meat Eater. I am amazed at the quality and how “lite”(no pun intended) their stuff is. This Balaclava fits me perfectly and the ear holes actually align with my ears.
I am another happy customer. Can’t wait to use it turkey opening day Saturday!!!!
Bought this mostly for concealment. Feel like it's light enough I can wear in warm weather but will also add some warmth when paired with a hooded jacket. I have a Solitude for cold temps, so I feel like the hood on that plus this will be plenty. Love how you can adjust it to more or less coverage for different situations.
Great design that's super warm. The merino definitely helps with the odor build up I've gotten in the past in synthetic face masks that comes from breathing into it where the mouth/nose are.
I bought one of these for myself last year and it's become my go to head gear for turkey and deer hunting. It's light enough to wear alone on cool sometimes damp spring mornings and makes a great extra layer when the temperatures drop. The holes for the ears let you hear turkeys gobble and deer that are walking in the leaves. I can wear it either over or under a ball cap. It is thin enough to wear under a heavy knit hat in the winter. It's the most versatile headgear I own. I liked it so much that I bought one for a friend as a Christmas gift.
