Dislikes: Nothing bad to say.

Likes: They fit well and are warm. Great for skiing. Fits under helmet. Easy to pull under chin and over nose.

Dislikes: Pills a little after washing, but not that noticeable.

Likes: The Ninjaclava is both comfortable and flexible in adjusting to fit the weather conditions. I like the fact that you can easily adjust the lower portion to drop below your chin when breathing hard to avoid moisture build up. It's has just enough weight to be effective in sub-freezing temperatures without feeling bulky. It does a good job stopping wind in gusty snow.

Dislikes: The only thing I don't like about the product is when adjusted for full face coverage and excercising it tends to be hard to exhale without moisture build up. Air vent holes in the mouth area might be a solution for future design consideration, but given the flexibility of the Ninjaclava, it would prevent me from buying it again for it's overall comfort and adaptability.

Likes: This is the most versatile balaclava I have ever had. (I've tried on 4 others this season.) Because of the 6 ways that it can be worn (all very comfortable), this is suitable from biking in windy conditions (~0-40F) to wandering around town without looking like a burglar. The big selling point for me is also how it is snug enough as a facemask (both with and without the hood on) and yet loose enough as not to impede breathing, especially while crouched over on a roadbike. I think the loose-ness of it also allows the hot breath to escape from the bottom of the balaclava instead of rising up to fog up glasses: both my regular prescription and biking glasses have stayed fog-free thus far.

Dislikes: This is not so much a dislike as it is just the temperature range it was made for: I have not tried it under sub-zero conditions, but by the feel of it, it may not be warm enough; but I think layering another balaclava or beanie over it should do the trick. Also, the drop on the front is shorter, which means if you plan on wearing it fully covering your face, the material is just enough to tuck in under a jacket collar--assuming you don't stretch your neck and look up too much, because then the end tumbles out.
