The Best Balaclavas for Children

A balaclava is a useful accessory to have on hand when temperatures drop, but kids still want to go out and play. By covering the head, neck and most of the face, they provide a generous amount of warmth and protection from cold air and wind. To help you find the right balaclava for your little one, we did some research and rounded up a few of our favorite options on the market for young children. Each of our picks has an adjustable design and is made with soft, warm and lightweight fleece, which is also breathable and durable, delivering maximum comfort.
