Different than the picture!

The material is high tech...not the old sock-like Nomex material we grew up with. However, I bought this balaclava because the picture shows the "OMP" printing to be down on the neck and not right below the eye-opening. However, I opened the package to find that the OMP name is printed below the eye opening like most other companies have done. I want a simpler, non-branded balaclava for vintage racing, so I returned it, but if the location of the name doesn't bother you, it's great!

As promised

My first balaclava... I bought OMP because of the reviews, and I was not disappointed. Comfortable and high quality.

Best one yet

Even size fits all is pretty accurate, though the feel is not as soft as the description would lead you to believe. Cooling and sweat absorbing is on point, too. Would recommend and but another!

hope for many years of use

One of the most comfortable balaclavas ever worn. Looking forward to many years of use.

This is a fantastic piece of gear! It breathes very well and is super stretchy and comfortable. The opening is rather large so it easy to pull it down past your mouth if you prefer to wear it like that. Helmets slip on easily and it doesnt bunch up or have any uncomfortable seams. I wore it for a few long stents and had zero issues. I highly recommend this balaclava!!

Head sock bliss

One of the best upgrades in driver comfort, the material is fitting without being tight, and way comfortable!

Best Balaclava

This is may favorite balaclava so far (I have at least ten of various types) because it isn't too tight (Alpinestars are noticeably smaller). I also like it that the face opening is larger than on most -- I don't like the balaclava to cover my mouth and the OMP One makes that easy.

Nice and soft

I like the feel of the OMP Nomex better than some other brands I've had.
