The Arcteryx Phase AR Balaclava provides excellent head, face and neck protection from harsh weather and cold conditions.
Constructed from Phasic™ fabric, so it is comfortable to wear around your face and head. The close fit ensures it can be worn under a helmet, providing fast wicking and warmth for your mountain adventure. Versatile too, as it can be rolled up to form a beanie.
Phasic™ base layer fabric is compiled from two different yarns. The first is a non absorbent hydrophobic yarn which will shed water molecules pushing them onto the PHi yarn. Silver ions are encapsulated into the hydrophobic fibres of the yarn which provide anti-microbial properties to help eliminate odour.
The second yarn is PHi, a multi dimensional yarn which wicks moisture laterally along the length of the yarn, effectively dispersing moisture evenly across the garment. Temperature regulation is improved as this dispersal eliminates cold spots. As you slow down or stop the fabric will dry quickly, as a result of the larger surface area the moisture is covering. This quick evaporation helps to retain body heat.

I am very satisfied with the product. I have an arcteryx phase ar beanie too . It's the best choice for running and cycling.
I got this for winter mountaineering to protect against the cold wind but it would also serve a purpose in other sports such as skiing. It's lightweight and stretchy providing a good fit. The hole is big enough for your eyes and nose and just needs pulling up a bit if you want your nose covering.
One very minor gripe is the edge of the hole around the face, which has a seam on one side which makes the edge there not sit flat against the face. The seam could have been better placed in the middle eother on the nose or forehead to avoid this. As I said, this is a very minor issue. Generally it does the job.
