Verified Buyer Reviewed by Woods woman from Florida on Tuesday, December 6, 2016Used on a backpacking trip in north Florida. Kept my head comfortable in upper 40 degree dry night and humid night in the 50s. Haven't tried it yet for daytime wear. Very comfortable, almost silky fabric. Not like wool of my childhood that irritated my skin. It's tricky trying to figure out how to put it on in the dark, had to use a light. At first eyes area felt exposed and cold so pulled the bottom part over the top part and stuck my nose through the mouth hole to breath. Gorgeous color if that matters to you.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Cautiously adding spice to the Vermont Clog look from VT on Wednesday, November 16, 2016Very comfy. I like Icebreaker's animal care, so when I buy wool productsI try to buy it from them.
Now if only it came with baklava..
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Emm from Seattle on Tuesday, November 8, 2016I love the Icebreaker Oasis Balaclava's of years past. This one is just okay. The design is flawed. Rather than being smooth over the ears, this one has a hinge created by a flap of fabric that supposedly frees up the chin-piece to move up and down, off the face or to cover up the face. This seam/hinge presses up against the sensitive parts of the ears and over time becomes irritating. This "hoodie" also runs a little small, and the wool is not as soft as usual. I will use it, but it will hurt my ears when layer up over it with a warmer hat when doing winter sports. Never had trouble with the previous designs when wanting to pull the chin flap off my face/mouth to leave entire face exposed.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by mo from Albuquerque on Tuesday, October 11, 2016... but a bit smallish. We're keeping it but will be very careful to wash in cold water. Besides the smallish size, it's a very pretty alternative to black, soft, and fun!
