Protect yourself from frigid cold snaps, brisk alpine winds, and driving snowstorms with the Buff Balaclava X Tech Buff. This high tech balaclava doubles as a helmet liner or neck gaiter when you're skiing, snowboarding, or simply braving frosty conditions around town. Its forehead, mouth, chin, and ears use Gore WindStopper 3 layer fabric for total windproof protection, while breathable mesh at the top of the head regulates your temperature when you're working up a sweat. There's ultra soft Polar fleece at the neck for an ultra cozy feel without chaffing, especially when it's layered under a sweater or jacket. Additionally, nostril and mouth openings prevent your breath from freezing on the fabric's surface in sub freezing conditions.
