Mountain Horse Opus Balaclava
very warm. it does seem to run small, I bought one for my daughter and had to return it since it was way too tight.
I wish the opening was a touch larger. Makes me feel a touch clausterphobic (spelling?).

Great Quality, poor fit
Love anything mountain horse but this fit was too awkward and I had to return. The nose piece is off which seems to be a complaint that is common. Still orderred but should've listened. If they redesign, I'll be sure to order multiples as I work outside in the barn all day, every day!

Wish I'd Read the Reviews Before Buying
I found the product to be exactly as reviewed. It looked and sounded like a great idea at a reasonable price, but it didn't fit well and didn't meet my expectations. The opening for the eyes doesn't fit right if the nose portion is positioned appropriately. It's definitely impossible to wear with glasses. Also, it leaves the back of the neck completely bare!

Great Winter Purchase
Excellent for hacking outdoors in the coldest of weather! Keeps your face from chapping - breathing unhindered by mesh!

Skip it, great idea misses the mark
This sounded good, and the idea is terrific but it falls short and is not usable. If worn as designed with your nose in the slot the seam rubs your eyeballs. If you scoot it down below your nose it is uncomfortable, not to mention that this defeats much of the purpose. I also found it would be too short in the back, leaving drafts down my neck if the face portion had been useful. Really a nice concept, and had it fit/worked it would be a sound investment. But it falls quite short of being able to be used. Save your effort as you'll end up returning it.

I would not recommend this product. This is the second (and will be the last) Mountain Horse product I've purchased and been unsatisfied with. The balaclava is too small and the material is uncomfortable and doesn't stay in place when I try to wear it around. You're better off buying one at a store where you can try it on. There's no way to tighten the area around the eyes and nose so you're constantly struggling to keep it in place. I would return this one except I had already taken the tags off.
