Awesome !! I spend lots of time fishing in Florida being retired. This was my first purchase from Aqua Design. The Balaclava model is the BEST I've worn. The additional coverage is a plus going from spot to spot fishing in Spring and Fall. The fabric has a comfortable feel and great color choices. I bought name brand ones by top fishing clothing apparel companies and Aqua Design are the best.

I am not a fisherman, but I spend a lot of summer time landscaping and being outdoors. I also have skin that is light and sensitive to the sun, more so as I get older. My dermatologist said “cover up”. I tried several other brands of balaclavas - sweat bags, too tight, poor fits. This one by AD gets my first place vote. If it’s a scorcher, I can hide under this balaclava. The material breathes well, but not perfectly. Room for improvement for an already thoughtful design, and lovely, light material. I wish it had baffled vents on the back to let breezes in. I wear it with a wide-brimmed hat. I also use the Pro Mask+ with a long billed baseball cap. It’s cooler, but does not stay on so well, the back band slips down when I’m active, a little annoying. It could use a sticky material to help hold onto the back of the cap. I also tried the tube - not for me, tight, not easy to adjust. I’ll stick with the balaclava and pro mask+, until AD adds the improvements I suggested to each, then I’ll upgrade.

I purchased the mask with the intention of covering my head and mouth, due to my long thick hair i'm unable to cover both areas without it annoying my eyes, however i like the way it securely holds my locks in place. I think its a good product, breathable, stretchable easy to hand wash and light weight. My husband loves it as he doesn't have any hair.
