I bought this online to resist fierce north shore weather and give me more adaptability than my Sonic balaclava. The Gorilla needs to evolve a bit before I stop looking for full protection and fog free sunglasses. This is not a pull on balaclava. It needs to be fastened and unfastened every time. Hard to fasten symmetrically and several velcro closures to manage. Don't wear wool or near all the hooks!

      Comments about Outdoor Research Men's Gorilla Balaclava - Black M:

      I love this product. I wear skiing, snow shoeing, even under a helmet during the Alaskan winter. Provides good warmth and wind protection. The layers (removable face mask) can be a bit confusing at times to get the Velcro lined up while wearing, but after some adjusting its good to go.

      • multiple parts
      • Multiple uses
      • Valcro Openings
      • Windstopping Ability

      Cons

      • Lacks Insulation
      • Lining Up Face Cover

      Best Uses

      • Around camp
      • Turret Gunner
      • When Windstopping Needed

      Comments about Outdoor Research Men's Gorilla Balaclava - Black M:

      Great product, worth the money, the multiple ways to set it up and open it up, allow for ease in conversation, extra protection when you need it. Good for blocking wind and protecting face well moving. Sometimes hard to line the face mask part up so it sits correctly (some practice taking off and putting on) Lacks insulation so can be used in shoulder seasons or when Temperatures are not too low. Wear another layer with it if temperatures are cold (-15*C or lower)

        • Backcountry

        Comments about Outdoor Research Men's Gorilla Balaclava - Black M:

        Love this Balaclava. I recently used it while leading an ice climbing/mountaineering trip into Mount Katahdin in Baxter State Park, Maine. Warm and kept the wind off during one extremely windy cold day (couldn't summit so I set up some ice in the only, yet exposed spot). My only issue is I would be afraid of losing the handy removable face mask.

          Comments about Outdoor Research Men's Gorilla Balaclava - Black M:

          I've used this balaclava for three years with no trouble. I wear it from November through March, five days a week, three hours per day. It dries quickly, washes easily, and retains it's shape. The removable nose cover and chin protector is what makes this my "go to" mask while the others stay in the drawer.

          By 

          from British Columbia, Canada

          Pros

          • Great Fit
          • Removable Breathing Port

          Cons

            Best Uses

            • Altitude
            • Mountain Storms
            • Polar Travel

            Comments about Outdoor Research Men's Gorilla Balaclava - Black M:

            When you need full frontal facial protection, this is the mask for you. Once you don your goggles there is no place for the elements to enter. I have tried many different types of breathing portals, and although they all frost up to some degree I find this system to be the best. The breathing port is removable, allowing you to thaw it out/ warm it up inside your jacket if it starts to get too frosty. I have used this product at altitude and in the Polar regions, and I wouldn't return without it.
