The Heat Exchanger is made of a nice quality fleece. The heat exchanger fits well and gives flexibility for fit since the mouth covering is adjustable. It captures heat from each exhaled breath and brings the heat back to the user but it only merely worked to keep my face warm. The fleece is soft and covers the face well and extends down far enough to tuck into a coat. I was also able to wear a N95 mask under the mouth covering which is a plus. While I received this after the cold season broke, I do very much look forward to using this all next season even though my kids were scared of me wearing it.

I was able to get and use this balaclava right before some of the coldest days to hit our area in the last few years. We were seeing temp’s well below zero during the day and much colder in the evenings.
• The material is a thick yet breathable fleece (320g) that I felt was comfortable to wear even for several hours. It will provide all day comfort at work, hunting, cold weather tailgating, etc.
• I wear my sunglasses or safety glasses frequently. Both were highly comfortable to wear while using this balaclava.
• The heat exchanger is probably my favorite part of this. I could easily breathe using it. I struggle with most masks with it comes to easy breathing. This exchanger helped keep in the heat and I never labored at all during my breathing. This was a huge plus for me. Another aspect I like is how comfortable it is on the bridge of my nose. Because the nose piece is flexible and soft I had no nose discomfort at all. You can adjust the overall fit of the exchanger (because of the Velcro) to tighten or loosen the fit to your liking. I was able to find a great fit that provided hours of comfort.
• The balaclava can be used with or without the heat exchanger.
• I felt the length was good also. It provided excellent neck protection and tucked nicely right into my coat.
• The yellow strips are perfect for safety and being seen by others.
• Easy to clean in the washing machine.
Klein takes the quality of the products very seriously. I have a nice assortment of their products and I’ve never been let down. I’m really happy with this product and see many years of usage. I recommend.

The recent artic freeze which hit most of the US gave a great opportunity to try this out and it sure works well. I originally selected to wear while using my snow blower to clean the driveway and found it a pleasure to wear. With temperatures in the teens I was nice and toasty and even started to sweat a bit. The material for the main piece is very soft and feels nice against your skin. I didn't have any issues either with moisture building up inside the balaclava, it stayed nice and dry even with my heavy breathing.
Also with the pandemic and mask mandate I have started to wear it a lot of situations to keep warm and have my nose and mouth covered at the same time.
I have tried with sunglasses and had some fogging occur. I kept adjusting but couldn't get it to go away completely.

This is a very practcal and useful face mask. It fits nice and snug comfortable to wear and very durable. The heat exchange easily removes from the balaclava for ease of use. You can wear your eyewear and goggles with no issues. The balaclava is washable, and should last you a very long time with proper care. This is a must for construction workers.

I'm an avid outdoor athlete, so I'm always on the lookout for gear that will help get me outside even during the coldest weather. This Heat Exchanger Balaclava from Klein is a fantastic addition to my winter outerwear. Where I ski, temps can get extreme and a full face covering is a must to avoid frostbite. This product adds an extra feature to the standard balaclava. The heat exchanger actually captures some of the heat from exhaled breath and redirects it back into the head/neck area. On a recent ski day, temps at the top of our mountain were -10 F, but my head and neck were warm and comfortable. The heat exchanger/face covering is removeable, so on less extreme days the product can function as a normal balaclava. I'm very happy with this product and highly recommend it.

The Balaclava itself is pretty good and fairly comfortable, and the separate "Heat Exchanger" adjustable mask, well, in my opinion, it sucks.
The face mask has a "built in aluminum nose piece for a snug fit", but is really not well designed at all.
When I have the balaclava on, and I put the face mask on, the materiel is thick enough that the nose piece does not conform to my nose, and the mask moves.
The strip of materiel ABOVE the aluminum strip, (slightly OVER 1/2 inch), actually rides up and blocks my vision, so no matter how loose or tight I make the mask, it rides up and interfers with my eyes.
The extra fabric looks like it MIGHT be able to be able to be trimmed off, but there is stitching along that edge, so I am not sure.
If you want a nice balaclave, grab one of these and toss the face mask. Or, maybe, the face mask will not bother you, and you can use it as designed.

I like the fleece material keep you worm the extra long hood fits into the coat and keeps the top of your head to your lower neck. The eye opening is large so you don’t loose any vision. The eye area has elastic around the eyes for a tight seal for those windy days. The mouthpiece can be removed and has a very large area of Velcro to adjust for a perfect fit.
The little cup in front didn't do what I thought...
The little cup in front didn't do what I thought it would in terms of "warming the air." Also, the sizing is "one size fits all" and I think there should be a medium and a large, maybe. Otherwise the heat exchange portion of it won't work
