Balaclavas will, once again, be the accessory to have in winter. From cute fluffy pastel ones to seriously technical ones, balaclavas of all kinds offer the kind of style and utility that an accessory needs during the cold season. And, speaking of seriously technical balaclavas, Stone Island’s standalone hood is the final boss.

We’ve got a roundup of the best balaclavas of the season that features a selection of what we thought was every side of the balaclava spectrum. That was until Stone Island blew all others out of the water with a balaclava that’s more like a helmet than a classic knitted bally.

Stone Island would be the brand to do it, though. The fabric specialist is famed for its unrivaled takes on modern utility. Mind-boggling dyeing processes, metal-reinforced fabrics, thermo-sensitive knits — Stone Island has mastered them all, so why are we surprised that they raised the balaclava bar?

Cut from ECONYL, this padded hood features a removable storm flap fitted with a breathable inlay that you can button up across your face when the cold weather whips up. The double-dyed ECONYL build has also been treated with an anti-drop agent for water resistance.

This Stone Island balaclava is just more proof — not that we needed it — that when winter sets in, there are few trustier labels than Stoney. Balancing head-turning modern design with best-in-class functionality is a recipe that not many others can follow as well as Stone Island.
