Reviews - Outdoor Research Sonic Balaclava
had to keep it
Purchased this for my wife, ordered a size up after reading reviews. When it got here I tried it on and it fit me perfectly. 7 and 3/4 head in a large. Snug but just about right. Really like the thinner material around ears and nose/ mouth. Versatile without being uncomfortable, looks like it will last a winter or two, that's good for me. Guess I'll have to get her another one.
Save your face!
I bought the Sonic Balaclava for a 5-week expedition to the Arctic last spring. The wind was whipping off of the frozen Chuckchi Sea practically nonstop. This product was so comforting to my face I didn't want to take it off! Hardly a day went by without me wearing it. I did need to add a hat as well, on really cold days, but the material was thin enough that it easily fit under my windstopper hat. I joked that I was going to wear it back in "civilization", I was so enamored with it. It is soft and sheltering and just plain feels good to wear when the wind is howling. Once you've tried it, you'll never be in the cold without one. It's going back with me to the Arctic in May, and will figure prominently in my daily wardobe. Plus, it's oh so fasionable for the "masked bank robber look!"
Keeps your nose from freezing off!
We don't have many bitter cold days in Colorado Springs, CO, but when we do, this balaclava works great to keep my face warm all day when working outside in the wind/snow. The mouthpiece truly is breathable so I don't end up with a damp, then frozen face from the moisture.
