awesome $10 balaclava by Geoffrey Beene?!? on 12/10/2012 09:59:20 MST Print View

yep. found this at marshall's for $9.99. 4 in 1 fleece balaclava by geoffrey bean.

this thing synches down to nothing, just like my melanzana hoody with a drawstring closure system. synches down tight for sleeping and you can open it up wide for eating and hiking. it comes with 3 huge cam locks (triple redundancy?) that are easily replaced. available in both white and black.

4-way fleece hood on 12/10/2012 12:43:31 MST Print View

Nice find Adam. For those that can't source one locally, search the web for 4-way fleece hood. It's a military item and often sold at surplus blowout prices. For example: http://www.sportsmansguide.com/net/cb/2-us-military-surplus-4-way-fleece-hoods.aspx?a=935749

I've also seen 6-way or 6-in-1 versions offered for under $10 online.

They all look like they'd work great for winter.

Walmart sells black ones for a little less, I think.

Yes 1000

I have one from OR which is made of gore windstopper and all that technical crap. But the one I love is the Costco brought $7 balaclava which is perfect and feels so good.

Nice find. How do you say "balaclava" anyway? As in bala-clava? Or, ba-laclava?

I say baklava.
It makes people hungry when you say "It's getting cold. I think I'll pull out the baklava" :-)

Oh, and yes, a great item for people who have little hair on their heads.
I do love the hood on my Malanzana fleece for this reason.

"Where does it get its name" for 10 points.

According to link above: from Balaklava, a seaport in S Crimea, in the S Ukraine, on the Black Sea: scene of English cavalry charge against Russians (1854), celebrated in Tennyson's poem Charge of the Light Brigade.
