Backpacking Light PRO 90 Balaclava equivalent? on 01/20/2013 14:12:22 MST Print View

I have a well worn Backpacking Light PRO 90 Balaclava (90 g/m2 Polarguard Delta and Pertex Quantum Shell) that I am looking to replace, however I have found several great looking down options, but am looking for a synthetic options. Does anyone know of any that I might have overlooked?

I searched up and down the internet for an equivalent to the BPL balaclava. The closest I could find was the Integral Designs primalid (a puffy synthetic beanie) + a fleece neck gaiter).

Then, I lucked out and managed to buy a coccoon balaclava from someone on the site. Maybe someone else has one to sell...?

Is there anything new in this arena? I would really like to find a balaclava insulated with Polarguard Apex or similar that around 2oz. I am not sure that fleece would be warm enough for me for sleeping at 20*F, and though I am usually a big proponent of down gear, I am not sure that one would work well for me for this application. My BPL Pro 90 Balaclava has worked well for me for years.

You would have to make it yourself,and it not exactly the same but there is this .I recently bought one off of gear swap from someone who was selling 2 brand new pro 90 balaclavas.
