The problem is I wear glasses and it is pretty cold out. The nose part of the balaclava tends to direct my warm breath upward onto my glasses and fogs them up. So then I have to wear the balaclava down below my mouth anyway so I lose whatever benefit the custom nose part would provide. But I did not get a cold throat or chin so still an improvement!
When receiving the item I was disappointed to see that it was not thin, windproof material, but rather an open fleece material that is on the thick side. It works, but it makes the fit around the neck of my MC jacket too tight when zipped fully up. Due to the thickness of the fleece, I feel like I'm being strangled when riding, and it restricts movement too much.
It works OK in cutting the wind due to the thickness, but I wish it was more like a windproof membrane with a thinner overall material. I guess I'll keep looking for a wind stopper type neck warmer.
Got this for my husband. He sweats gallons. We have very high end helmets that we like to protect. This does the job. It absorbs the sweat and keeps the grease out of the helmet material. What more can I say. We travel extensively. This washes in the shower with him and dries quickly for the next days ride. This is our second one.
