The Merino Wool fabric offers warmth in the 45-60 degree range. You can tuck it in and pop the face mask up or down. However you want to wear the balaclava, it just works.

About Nate

Hi, I'm Nate Lavalla. I'm ATD's newest team member in the marketing department. I recently moved to Hendersonville, NC., from Pittsburgh, PA. Before moving, I ran and operated a bike shop out of the North Side in Pittsburgh. Nowadays, you can catch me, my wife Kate, and our lab Ted out on the trails around Dupont State Forest. I will be traveling and exploring trails, bike towns, coffee shops, and breweries from here through West Virginia and back to Pittsburgh. I'll even be taking a trip out West. We'll often update you with new places to visit, interviews with local shopkeepers, and the best riding spots. Hope you come along for the journey.
