Polygiene Treated for odor & bacteria control
Uses a special ODOR CRUNCH Swedish technology that works as a natural anti-odor treatment by capturing, ‘crunching,’ and permanently removing odors using natural silica particles, the primary component of common sand.
This keeps clothing and fabrics smelling fresher for longer and reduces the amount of washing required.
Moisture Wicking for sweat absorption
The moisture-wicking fabric used in the balaclava is specifically designed to pull sweat away from the skin and move it to the surface of the fabric, where it can evaporate quickly. This helps to keep your skin dry and comfortable, preventing the buildup of sweat and odors - even during long and intense rides.
4 way stretch to maximize flexibility
The 4-way stretch fabric allows for maximum flexibility and movement, so you can wear the balaclava comfortably under the helmet during long rides. The breathable fabric also allows for air to circulate, keeping you cool and comfortable.
Hydration pack friendly
The ViaTerra 2nd Skin balaclava comes with a two-way hydration slit, which allows you to have the bite valve within easy reach during the ride. This feature allows you to stay hydrated without the hassle of removing your helmet or balaclava, which can be especially useful during long rides in hot and humid weather.
Hydration tube guides
The elastic loops on both sides of the balaclava help guide the hydration tube to the front hydration slit so you don't have to worry about it getting in the way or becoming dislodged.
Flat lock seams for added strength & durability
Flatlock seams are created by overlapping two pieces of fabric and then sewing them together, which results in a strong, durable and comfortable seam that lies flat against the skin. This construction method makes the ViaTerra 2nd skin balaclava more comfortable to wear, as there are no raised or irritating seams against the skin. Additionally, flatlock seams also reduce stress along the seams, which helps to prevent the balaclava from stretching out of shape or becoming damaged over time, making it more durable.
Soft piping around the viewport
The ViaTerra 2nd Skin balaclava features soft piping around the viewport, which provides comfort during long days in the saddle. The soft piping is a strip of soft and flexible material that surrounds the viewport, which is the opening that allows you to see through the balaclava. The soft piping helps to prevent the viewport from rubbing against your skin, which can cause irritation and discomfort during long motorcycle rides.
Branded reflectives provide enhanced visibility during night rides

I am glad to say that I am a happy user of two 2nd skin balaclava from Viaterra.
I have been using both of them for 1.5yrs now and just have mainly +ves to say about this product
The balaclava is very soft on the skin and doesn't leave any impressions around the eyes like some cheap ones do and also doesn't cause any irritation near the nose/mouth when it comes into contact while adjusting.
The polygene anti odour material is actually doing its job decently and the coating doesn't come off while washing as well. Not the case of other balaclavas I have used 3x tims this price but the anti odour material comes out easily from the balaclava like dry dandruff from our heads.
It's fairly quick to dry as well.
I only have to mention the one negative factor I have seen is the hole for the hydration bladder's mouth peice is not that much easy to use. It doesn't match sometimes with the hole.
And a bit less of reflective material like the Viaterra wording and logo. It also comes off relatively soon after a couple of washes.
Overall highly recommended the product when we can live with its small negatives.
Best balaclava in the market, used earlier competitor balaclava... this one fits and sit well with the helmet
I have used various balaclavas in past but this second skin balaclava is one of the best in terms of utility.
Serves the purpose and dries pretty fast after washing .
Fully satisfied with the product
This one has to be the best and most comfortable balaclava that i have ever used in the last 11 years of riding. Perfect for hot and humid days and even for slightly cold mornings. It’s a quick drying one and helps a lot with absorbing the seat. Highly recommended. Only thing is if there could be something to keep it tight on the nose area, as most balaclavas tend to slip down when putting the helmet on.
