Balaclava – 10 Best Balaclava Masks For Winter (Unisex)

Regular beanies only cover the head and cover the area around the ears, but when you go outside to participate in various outdoor sports and activities, you need more protection, in which case this particular model comes to the fore.

What are balaclava masks?

Balaclava winter face masks are a special accessory designed to give you special and complete protection. It covers your head, ears, cheeks, neck, and face excluding the eye area. They have a long neck section so that the part can be tucked in under the clothes so that the wind or cold can by no means reach your body.

They prevent the negative effects of sun UV rays, dust, cold, wind and allow you to easily participate in outdoor activities.

What types of balaclava masks are there?

The various models can be divided primarily into those that you can wear in summer or winter.

  • Classification by season

Summer models are made of lightweight and thinner polyester or acrylic materials that are breathable and thus prevent skin irritation, sunburns and negative sun rays that can cause various health problems.

Winter models are made of thicker materials such as polar fleece or have an outer polyester material and the inside lining with fleece. In some cases, they can be fully knit with a long neck so they are a lot warmer.

  • Classification by shape

The second classification relates to differences in shapes.

The first and simplest balaclava shape is a one-piece balaclava that is made with no sewn extra material, which can be moved up and down. They are close-fitting and stretchy.

The second shape is when the front part around the mouth and nose is later sewn onto the model and it can move, which means that if you need it, you can lower it under the chin.

The third shape is when there are additional filters and breathable little holes in the area of the nose and mouth, which has the extra ability to stop dust, and in these models, you can replace the filters when they wear out.

Each of these shapes is made in different variants, to be suitable for winter or summer.
