A face mask can only do so much when it comes to keeping you warm. As fall and winter roll in, we're looking to supplement our PPE with a face-warming, eye-catching balaclava. While the balaclava won't provide any protection against the virus, finding one that works in tandem with your face mask can give your COVID-era fits new life.

We’ve rounded up some of the best balaclavas out there to give your PPE game a much-needed visual boost. From technical builds by ASICS and Arc’teryx to luxury options by Marine Serre and Raf Simons, our selection stretches all bounds of the balaclava.
