Anyone have ever try volcoms built in face tech?
 
Volcoms $300 and up jackets have a built in face tech balaclava. They also sell their face tech separately but the built in ones are adjustable and are clipped into the hood so u could slid it back when not needed. I like the idea of not having to remember the it every time or carry it in a pocket when warm. Trying to justify spending $300-350 on a jacket. Kinda want it though lol

You'll love it. Volcom "tech" is the shit. Glovetech, ziptech, facetech...pockets in good spots....do it.

Got one of them. For really really cold days you'll still want a traditional balaclava, but for days where it's wet snow or pellet snow, the built-in is unbeatable. And it pulls down under your chin or up over behind your neck when not in use.

Only downside is I find it a little difficult to get enough air through the breathing part when it really gets soaked. I'm thinking of getting a couple of reinforced holes put in.

I have the Volcom Landvick jacket from last year and the thing is the BOMB. The face mask is dope but like Donutz said you'll still want to wear the balaclava for super cold days, it just makes it even better. Volcom tech is the shit
