Gorilla stays warm in winter
I have used OR hats and balaclavas for winter activity and snow removal in North Dakota for some time. I like the Gorilla design as the face/nose cover is adjustable with the Velcro, and I can get the mouth port exactly where I want it (I have a long face and this is a problem with other balaclavas). You need to get used to putting the Gorilla on, or look in a mirror to get the wrap around part exactly where you want it, so that is a downside. I'm usually dressing inside and then going into the cold, so that isn't an issue for me. I like the protection from wind that the Gorilla offers, and it is quite warm until the temp falls below zero. It works fine for bitterly cold days when I need to be active but need my face covered, such as snowblowing on a cold windy day. The removable face mask is also a nice option if you get too warm and want more air.

Good To Go
I used this balaclava with a UA coldgear balaclava under it in subzero conditions and it worked fantastic, It stood up to a 40 MPH rotor wash with a chill factor of minus 20 degrees, This item was used under severe conditons and on Helo insertions in the mountains at about 8.000 feet, Very glad i had this item with me!!
