Patagonia Capilene Thermal Weight Balaclava

patagonia-balaclavaI like my balaclavas simple, warm and light. Patagonia’s Capilene® Thermal Weight Balaclava hits all those marks and is breathable to boot. At 1.2 ounces, you’ll forget you have it along—until the temperature drops. It’s soft and comfortable and can be worn above your mouth or below your chin. It’s thin enough for easy layering and the fabric is partially recycled and bluesign® approved (manufactured under strict guidelines that prioritize environmental and worker-health). And it’s made by Patagonia so it’ll last for years and years.
