Warm, fleecy and with full coverage for foul-weather days of hiking, skiing or even commuting around town, the Apex Balaclava provides breathable protection from the elements. The Apex features our 200gm brushed RealFLEECE® fabric, made from a super-soft and warm blend of merino wool and nylon with a touch of LYCRA® for added stretch. The overlap opening provides better protection in nasty weather and pulls down under you chin in milder conditions. We also included a small ventilation flap over the mouth for better breathability, and flatlock seams to eliminate chafing.

The merino is an ancient breed of alpine sheep. Over millions of years they evolved a superfine, highly breathable fleece to protect them from freezing winters and scorching summers. It will do the same for you.
Merino naturally keeps you warm in cold weather and cool in warm weather.
Merino absorbs and releases vapour to prevent overheating and clamminess.
Merino gives you extra protection against the sun's harmful rays, naturally.
Naturally anti-bacterial, it can be worn for days without washing.
