how comfortable is it when wearing as a balaclava?
i feel like it would not be stretchy or wide enough and would press into your face rather firmly
Works perfectly honestly becuase its just stretchy enough to fit around your head and face without being too tight or loose. The material its made out of is BOMB, super soft, warm, and breathable. I usually put it around the back half of my head, pull it up to my nose, and then put my helmet on. Then im set for the day because I can pull down the part that covers my nose below my mouth to smoke/drink without the rest of the Buff moving. Then once i get off the lift just pull it back over the nose
I will mention tho mine was like $30 and i think said its made of wool or something? Make sure you get the soft one not the more plastic/bandana feeling one.
