Pyua are a high-end, environmentally conscious German outdoor brand specialising in technical ski and snowboarding apparel. All their clothing is made in Europe and many of their designs are well thought out, often interesting and always functional. Solid German design with a decent amount of flair. PUYA has won the Eco Responsibility Award multiple times along with other awards for sustainable and innovative products.
The Flash balaclava is made from 100% recycled polyester. The outside features a smooth, tight weave to aid wind resistance and flatlock stitching throughout to enhance comfort. The inner features a gridded micro fleece lining which provides a degree of warmth but its main purpose is to wick moisture away from the skin keeping the wearer dry and warm. Other features include a mesh breathe panel which helps prevent eyewear fogging up and a "flip-top" design allowing the balaclava to be worn in a number of ways: face-mask only, neck gaiter or in full balaclava mode.
"The Pyua Flash Balaclava is a high quality, flexible piece of headwear. Extremely comfortable regardless of how it's worn. It does just enough to keep the wearer comfortably cool, but not so much that one overheats, even when carrying heavy loads up demanding slopes. Its thermal properties derive largely from its wind resistance, while the micro fleece inner keeps the wearer dry and thus warm. The Flash Balaclava paired with a lightweight beanie will see you well into the double digit sub-zero temperatures when active in the mountains. A superbly versatile piece of headwear and Scramble's top pick in the Cold Weather Balaclava category."
The Flash Balaclava is available in two sizes: S/M (which would be suitable for most women) and L/XL (which is suitable for most men).
