The Shiftup series uses the OR Hexagon Fleece to keep you warm during exercise. This versatile balaclava works brilliantly in a number of ways depending on what you need.
Outdoor Research says: The secret ingredient to this balaclava's cozy performance is Hexagon Fleece™, which keeps you warm through whatever cold pursuits you put it through.
Outdoor Research's Shiftup Balaclava uses two different materials to provide a super comfortable, versatile balaclava. The brushed interior of both make this smooth and comfortable to wear no matter what activity you are doing. The neck is made from high wicking, quick drying, Hexagon Fleece which insulates nicely. The crown is a lighter, stretchy fabric which is great for breathability but it can be folded back and tucked away completely if you get too hot.
The packaging that the balaclava is mounted on comes with a handy illustration of six different ways that you can wear it ranging from hat to neck tube and through to high coverage balaclava. This is great as it shows how versatile it is and allows you to get a lot more use out of it. It certainly has for me during cold weather training sessions when you want high coverage to begin with but need less as things get more intense.
