Blackstrap Hood Balaclava
In a world where ski fashion ping-pongs between look-at-me neon colors and muted forest tones that never make for good photos, there's something to be said for keeping your appearance incognito. That's why the American-made, UPF 50+ (UV) rated Blackstrap Hood Balaclava caught my eye: people can't see who I am when I'm wearing it, which leaves them guessing when my skiing is good and none-the-wiser in case I get caught in a Jerry of the Day situation. The balaclava covers my face and neck from the sun when it's a blue sky day and from the winter elements on stormy days. The four-way stretch fabric is a patented blend of polyester, nylon, and cashmere that feels great on skin and fits under a helmet perfectly. The breathable fabric is safe for cleaning goggle lens smudges and is naturally antimicrobial. [$29.99, bsbrand.com] - Jon Jay, Digital Content Editor who swears he has never been on Jerry of the Day.
