I love Carhartt and need FR/ARC, so I figured this was the perfect marriage.
However I have found this balaclava to be lacking 1. My face is poorly covered. the opening could be a bit more narrow. 2. the neck piece should be longer, can not tuck in to my jacket or shirt.
On the plus side the 2 peace design makes it easy to adjust the fit, but it does concern me that it might rip a seam when wearing it. As well it is very comfortable, and the areas it covers are nice and warm. As a lineman in northern Canada this is of major importance.
If you are a Carhartt lover this balaclava is for you, other wise you might want to take a second look.
