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!

I bought this intending to use it on denali. I tested it in CO last weekend with 15 degree temps and 20 mph winds. You need well below zero wind chills to need this. Otherwise a buff will suffice and is much more comfortable. The mask isn't comfortable and takes adjustment and some getting used to. The entire mask is Gore wind stopper which works as designed, but it doesn't stretch. The cut around the neck needs redesigned to be more conforming.

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

          Hard to adjust outside in the cold. If you put it on in front of a mirror before going outside, no prob. Otherwise things can get a bit frustrating. I use it for ski and it works great.

          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.

          By 

          from Northern Ontario

          Pros

          • Adjustable
          • Comfortable
          • multiple parts
          • Multiple uses

          • 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)

            • Fear of loss

            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.
