Trail Summit™ Balaclava is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Product I got this just in time for a rare south Texas cold snap. Temperatures dropped to 28 degrees with 25mph winds! It was as if it were 65 degrees out. Was in the cold and wind for an hour and never felt the effects of the wind and cold. Great product!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very thin, very small If you want a balaclava that doubles as a gaiter and is very thick for the harsh elements, this is not it. This is more protecting your face on mild days with some wind. It also runs very small. I have a normal size head and this was like a second set of skin on my head, crushed my ears down and my nose, very uncomfortable. Constructed well as it's still a Columbia product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good mask This mask for me fits just fine. It fits like a wet suit. Helping you keep you warm. I've read a lot of reviews saying it was too tight. Everyone has a diff size head. Just keep that in mind. My hat size is a large. And I have. I problem with this. The weather had been -20 out. And this has helped keep me nice and warm. Fits nice and snug. And let's me breath with ease. I've had other masks in the past. And they let to much wind through because they weren't very fitting. This doesn't. Weather your out playing. Doing the driveway. Or hunting. This is the mask that will keep you nice and warm.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from One Size fits small Looks to be a very nicely made item, but I am concerned about the size. I have a normal sized head and it is more snug than I prefer. My wife tried it and, with her hair, it was uncomfortably tight. She won't wear it. There is not much stretch. I'm not ready to return it, but I'd be a lot happier if it was a bit larger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A little small for my husband It's to small for my husband he ordered it and it was really tight so he gave it to me. I love it it's so warm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For extreme Cold! I had to remove this on a ski day, as it was "too" warm. Wore it again on a much colder day and was awesome! Part of my "cold" weather gear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome I ski everyday, either as an instructor or for fun. I have worn this balacalva everyday for 8+ hours since I bought it (I actually bought 2). I think this is one of my favorite things I've purchased from Columbia. It is always warm, fits nicely inside my helmet, but I don't get as sweaty as I did with my old one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tight fitting My head is on the smaller side of heads, and it is still a little small for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I bought this to put under my motorcycle helmet for the colder nights when I ride, I have used it in 40 degree whether going around 60-70 mph and it works awesome! Recommend it to anyone! Great job Columbia!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fit and function is superb. This is a nice fitting head and face cover of all but the eyes. It breaks off some wind, keeps the face and had warm and is easy to breath through. You can get a cap or helmet over it. It is comfort plus fiction.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfectly Warm This is an amazing product worth every penny. I used it to bike all of last winter and would go down to 18 degrees with just the balaclava (no hood on my jacket) and it kept me plenty warm. If I got too hot I could just pull the top back and wear it as a neck gaiter (although I wouldn't do this all the time for stretching reasons). Wish I had this thing my whole life.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Kind of very tight on my mouth I like it but it does run on the small side. I am a small frame guy with a small narrow head and this is pretty tight on me but I figure when it's freezing outdoors that will be a good thing. I am just not sure how comfortable I will be wearing this for extended periods. The area below the mouth, the neck and shoulders drapes down very nice, good coverage. This is the first O/S = One Size product I have purchased on this site that doesn't have a perfect fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect This mask is everything. Has a nice comfortable fit, skin tight so that you can add additional layers (hats, scarfs, snoods, goggles) and if nothing else, gets the job done....

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well I've worn this balaclava on two hunting trips thus far, on two of the coldest days of the season... It has not failed me. I can't get over how thin it is for the amount of warmth that it puts off. Certainly you need to wear a hat over it because it is not wind proof by any stretch of the imagination. My only complaint, is that I wish the mouth opening allowed for a little more ventilation. After several hours the area around it becomes very moist which isn't a big issue as long as you keep breathing, the temperature of the moisture stays up there, but putting it back on after it's been sitting in the cold for a spell can be a little chilly. A camo color, or even an OD green, or dark tan would be a nice addition. I have to wear a camo mesh over it when up the tree to keep the solid black color from standing out while hunting. The pic shows how I wear it under my gear... Toasty warm after 3 hours of 30 degree sit! I would buy it again for sure.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice but... It's really cool. Keeps my face warm and I can use it for costumes as a bonus! I would have rated it 5 stars, but the diamond breathing hole section on mine isn't exactly centered. Not a huge problem, but seeing the diamond off center from my nose is a little annoying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product Great item. Fits perfectly to contour your face. Ideal for any cold weather conditions to keep your warm despite the elements. Would recommend this to anybody who is out in the cold.
