Expected BetterFit me well, kept me warm, and great at blocking wind but after the third time washing the stitching and rubber bands around the face started coming out. Definitely not what I would expect from Sitka.

Too Looseloose fitting for me. like most heavy weight face gear, this was loose and would sit crooked if you turned your head. Not sure if it is just me head size and shape or product needing better design. returned for refund and onto the next item to try. i'm sure if it fits, this balaclava would be nice.

What I was looking forI read the reviews on this product before purchasing and I was concerned it would not fit well. I was pleasantly surprised when I tried it on. I loved the fit. I have a large head, (hat size 7 5/8) and the fit is moderately loose. I like that. I do not like having anything constrictive on my face, neck or head. Especially for hours at a time. With someone who has a smaller head I can see where the fit might feel sloppy. The face hole is the right size to either pull up over the nose, or pull down to expose the full face. The material feels warm, but also breathes well. I didn't give it 5 stars because I haven't tried it yet in the field. The true test. But, I am excited to try it this spring chasing Turkeys. I'm a big fan of Sitka, and I predict I will be a big fan of this balaclava.

DisappointedDisappointed in price, fit, and durability. Third day in the field the stitching around the face mask started pulling loose. Fit was very awkward and it just didn't feel comfortable to wear. Not what I expect from Sitka and the price. I have several pieces of Sitka clothing and this is one of three that has failed me with not much time worn in the field. I returned this item and replaced with another brand.

Not Too ImpressedThis balaclava is warm and made well, but the fit is close to the worst thing I have ever worn. When trying to shape this to my head (making comfortable to see out of), the material bunches up real bad at the corners of my eyes. Not form fitting at all, which surprises me for Sitka.
There aren't many choices out there for the Gore Optifade Waterfowl camo, so I will have to modify the balaclava to make it comfortable to wear.
Price is a little steep for what it is. Although, I do recommend, only because it is warm, buying it.
