A Breathable, Breakaway Balaclava
Our unique magnetic design gives you the choice. The "System" includes the Mullet Hat + Facemask. They work together (hat has metal, facemask has magnets) to create The Weatherneck System!
Too 🔥? Just rip off the face mask without stopping.
Too ❄️? Simply tighten up the mask for a snug feel.
Layering is rule #1 for cold weather comfort and The Weatherneck System is the only balaclava that lets you effortlessly adjust to your environment.
One Size Fits All Face Mask
A unique interface of magnets in the face mask and metal in the hat create a customizable fit for users of nearly all shapes and sizes.
Hat, Face Mask & Balaclava > 3-in-1
Packed with thoughtful features, but there's even more to it.
The Mullet Hat fully covers your ears and neck, but it also includes a secret pocket (perfect for a hand-warmer) and a pony tail pass through in the back of the hat.
Breathable, Ventilated Face Mask and Hat - cause you're on the move
Most products on the market don't take into account that you will be ACTIVE in the outdoors and creating your own heat all while breathing pretty heavily. Our design was created to allow you to draw full breath IN & OUT, this feature greatly reduces fogging as well.
Our unique mesh design also eliminates the feeling of being suffocated by wet, sweaty fabric.
What the press thinks of The Weatherneck
As with most balaclavas, the Weatherneck takes the sting out of a freezing conditions. What sets this one apart is that you can work hard in it without feeling like you are being slowly smothered with a wet towel. It breathes exceptionally well and, should temperatures warm during your ride, removing the face mask can be done on the fly, in seconds. - Vernon Felton
Average Joe Cyclist
This is a very highly recommended cycling balaclava. It keeps you warm, while feeling comfortable and letting you breathe as much as you want. Best of all, it is super flexible so you can adjust on the saddle as you warm up. I recommend it for cyclists, but it would also be ideal for hikers and for all kinds of snow sports.
Road Bike Rider
Having a 3-in-1 winter hat, facemask and balaclava that is customizable as your body temperature changes during a ride is unique. The Weatherneck System provides all that

The Weatherneck Origins
We Were Launched on Kickstarter
The Weatherneck completed 2 successful Kickstarter campaigns that both delivered on time.
Selling over $70,000 in pre-orders we have loads of happy customers all over the world. Here is our video from the 2nd campaign.
Designed for performance
The Weatherneck System has balaclava origins but was created to be something different. It was specifically created to AVOID a painful part of racing and training - feeling like you can't breath becuase of a balaclava is no bueno! It's not just cycling that our balaclava (or ski mask) works for though. Skiers, duck hunters, snowboarders, cross-country skiers and anyone who is outside getting their adventures in no matter what the weather is can use our breathable balaclava. We designed it to not use windproof material, but to block just enough wind to get the job done. This is designed for people who are ACTIVE in the outdoors. If you're just gonna be sitting around outside, this is not the balaclava for you! It's rare to find a piece of sports equipment that offers few compromises and makes no apologies for performing to the task at hand, The Weatherneck System is one such piece of gear. The hat is a little different, the facemask or skimask is a little unconventional and the whole system comes apart using magnets and that's not like any other balaclava on the market. But we're not afraid! Suffering through a hard effort outdoors during your sport of choice is miserable. Having the ability to quickly remove a facemask while you're under the gun is blissful.
