Ultralightweight yet extremely efficient, the Capilene® Air Balaclava provides unsurpassed face, ear and neck protection for alpine climbers and snow riders. Made from an breathable blend of 51% merino wool and 49% Capilene® recycled polyester, Capilene® Air feels light and soft on the skin, insulates even when wet and dries quickly. We create the soft 18.5-micron-gauge-yarns used in Capilene® Air with an innovative airblasting technology that dramatically increases the yarn’s loft while reducing weight compared to traditional wool yarn. Our seamless 3-D construction eliminates chafe points and nearly eliminates wasted material. The traditional balaclava styling lets you position the face opening over your mouth or under your chin, depending upon conditions.
