I’ve always wanted a balaclava but never got one, specifically I wanted one similar to the one you saw in Call of Duty video game, I never got one but I got something similar for review from a company called SmartSpeed. It’s not a balaclava but it’s close I guess as it’s a head or neck wrap that you wear to keep your neck and face warm but it has a skull design on it. This could also be used as a mask for Halloween and numerous other uses. Read on to learn more…

The packaging is just a plastic bag which is fine as it’s just a piece of cloth and it’s not exactly fragile. The bag has numerous examples on it of how to wear or use the wrap.
It is large at about 19 inches by 9 1/2 inches in dimensions and it’s tube shaped to go around your head and neck. There is no seam which I like a lot, it’s solid and one piece. The material is thin yes but I found that it’s actually warm. The skull design is located about half of the way down the warp, the bottom of it is at about the halfway point in the cloth overall. The wear it as a skull over your own face you’ll need to fold down the top half inside and this works to double to layer to keep you warmer but you can still breathe through it.
The skull design reminds me of a vampire with the fanged teeth. It also remind me of the mask from the video game Call of Duty, so it can be a few things really.
So I wore it as you’re supposed to. When you fold it down to the top of the skull design it should then line up with your nose it looks like you’ve got a skull face. Not much else to it really.
I like this product a lot, it’s got a great design and it’s large enough to keep your face and neck warm.
The material does seem thin but it’s actually quite warm especially since it’s basically double layered on your face. It’s already started to get cold here off and on and one day was 32F with wind chill in the upper 20’s and I made sure to try it that day and it did keep my face nice and warm and it kept the cold wind out.
I see nothing wrong with this product myself, it works as advertised and looks good.
Only time will tell if it’s made to last though.
+Thin but yet warm material
+Big enough to keep neck and face warm
