Head, face, neck: allround protection by balaclavas
Balaclavas cling to your head and neck like a mask. Depending on the model, balaclavas have openings for eyes and nose, and in some cases also for the mouth. The tight sitting fit protects the sensitive head from frosty temperaturs and thus prevents the wearer from catching a cold or from suffering skin damage from frost bite. These protective functions are based on some of the balaclava´s particular characteristics.
- highly breathable ensuring fast moisture transport
- equipped with flat seams
Because balaclavas are worn close to the head, a high wearing comfort is equally important. The balanced mix of synthetic fibres and wools is skin-friendly and feels pleasant to the touch without rucking. While synthetic material such as polypropylen or polyester provides for rapid moisture transport, the wool ingredients are behind the warming properties. Balaclavas with a wide face openeing can be turned into a shawl or a hat if required.
Balaclavas as cold protection for outdoor activities
With a balaclava you can't go wrong whether you are cycling, skiing or walking in the cold. Balaclavas of the Thermo Function TS series can witshstand temperatures of up to -40°C. Passionate hunters treasure the warming properties of their balaclavas when they spend a frosty night on the high seat.
When the forecast calls for cold or storms you should wear this functional hood. Even if the thermometer predicts no frost, felt temperatures can differ widely from those indicated particulary under some wind conditions.
Balaclavas protect your head, face and neck in many situations: when you work in the forest during the winter months, when you go hunting or when you cycle to work.
