Motorcycle Balaclavas A wide range of balaclavas are available from Louis. When you buy a balaclava, you can choose between different materials, each offering its own advantages. Cotton is inexpensive and needs no more care than ordinary underwear. Synthetic fibre balaclavas are particularly good at wicking moisture away from the body, and they dry very quickly. Balaclavas made of silk are extremely thin and lightweight, yet keep you nice and warm. If you have trouble making up your mind, you can order several balaclavas from Louis online to try on. Louis will take back any item that does not fit or which you do not like.
