I could sure use a balaclava when I walk the dogs. Freakin windy and cold outside.

Mmm, baclavas. The dessert of kings.

Oh, balaclavas? I don't know what that is.

When at Balaclava we landed quite sound,
we were cold, wet and hungry, and lay on the ground.
'Twas early next morning that we got the call
for to fetch a hot breakfast of powder and ball.

I have a poly fleece balaclava I got from Sportsman's Guide. I really like it but I have one problem. It is sewn together on the inside up the back, over your head, and down your forehead. That big clump of material stabs my forehead and bugs the crap out of me. It kind of hurts. When I take it off I have a big mark on my forehead that last about an hour. It looks like a big red gash.

One time my sister in law was over when I had just came in from riding the 4 wheeler. I took off the balaclava and she started freaking out. "Oh God, what happened to your head?" It looked like someone took an ax to my skull.

Balaclavas are essential gear if one wishes to be truly tactical.

Or warm during a run in sub-freezing temps.

This is what it is truly good for.

Tactical? Not I, friend, not I.

I was wearing a balaclava today on the ski mountain, kept me nice and toasty.

"I'm the only one in this room professional enough to wear a balaclava."

Wearing one during cold weather = ok.

Wearing one when it's hot outside just to look tactical = not ok.

Nice for deer hunting, course the deer probably smell the smoke on mine.

I like them. They make you look like a big bugeyed testicle.

extra tacticool points if you wear a boonie cover over it.

if you're wearing one, your only recourse is to shoot the hostage...
