Avoid if cycling fan – Stylish Winter Fleece Balaclava Scarf Hat Headgear - Black Reviews

posted by ovitters on 01/14/2013 Certified Owner

Involvement:Novice  (still getting used to it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
- you do not look like a criminal - can easily use as a scarf - also easy to change it into a scarf when entering a store or a building (to avoid looking a robber entered the store/building) - very warm when used as a scarf - material feels nice, is soft and warm
Cons:
- if you're a quick cyclist (e.g. 25-30km/h), the wind goes in the balaclava, past your head and you feel the wind at the back. meaning it almost feels colder than cycling without it - there will be some space between the material and your head, impossible to avoid that (none of the straps will allow you to make it fit to your head)
Other:
I almost always cycle, so this item is not useful for me. I still very much like it.
Bottomline:
- should've figured out beforehand that for cycling the wind would get between the material - if you use this for walking, recommend it - for cycling or anything similar, don't buy
