Will this fit someone with a large head? Mine is approx 24 1/2" diameter. Normal snap-backs do not fit at all. I realize it says one size fits all, but am a little skeptical.

My head is 24" and it just barely fits me - I usually wear size XL hats. I would probably go with one of the balaclavas off of our website, because they are slightly larger than the Massdrop version. Send me an email if you have any further questions! :)

I'm confused. You could only wear this in cold dry places. Where I live it rains and is cold throughout the year. These ruin when they get wet correct? Even washing them in protection doesn't keep them from ruining on the trail. How do any of you keep your down items from "going sour" and stay dry in wetter climates and snow areas?? I mean wearing this during a snow storm or rain is going to do little to keep you warm. Do you have to cover this up with another thing??? Curious...

The fabric has a DWR treatment to shed most moisture, and the down is also DWR treated to retain loft in high-moisture environments.

Most would use a rain jacket in the rain to protect their insulation

Love it! So warm! I’m hoping my son can get it over his big head- I couldn’t get this on over my glasses.

I'd recommend washing by hand using a down specific cleaner. I use NikWax down cleaner. If there's no sports store near you that carries it, you can order it online. DO NOT use detergent EVER. It strips the natural protection off the down and makes it less effective. To dry, use your dryer at a low heat setting and break up the clumping every so often. With big things like sleeping bags and jackets you can put a couple of tennis balls in, but with something this small just a few times during the drying cycle to fluff it up and you'll be great

I purchased the overfill and highly recommend it. It works great as a hood for my down jacket and coupled with my down quilt it has made the world of difference to sleeping in cold or windy conditions over just using a beanie.

Does this have a way to keep it in place? In the picture of the person in the hammock, the person is a little lost in their hood. He may be very comfortable, but is there a way to control how it fits—maybe tightening a strap or something?

You have the option of running a cord through the front and back loops, then underneath your armpits to secure it.

Okay, Massdrop - Why do you show a regular price of $80, when the manufacturer shows it as $65? https://goosefeetgear.com/products/down-balaclava/ A discount of $5 plus a shipping charge of $9.25 for an article that weighs 1.3 oz (you show 1.0 oz on your specs) is no incentive for me to consider a purchase, and to inflate the regular price like this is just bad business practice....

EDIT: Please disregard my post as I am in error. This particular hood is not the one shown on the GG website, and appears to be specially made and offered to the MD community. It uses a 9d nylon as opposed to the regular 20d, and 950 fill instead of the normal 850 fill. I should have seen the "exclusive" tag in the headline, and read the specs more carefully...

Massdrop, it sure would be nice if you showed a little more responsiveness to errors, such as the ones I called out on this product a year ago. https://www.massdrop.com/buy/goosefeet-gear-down-balaclava/talk/1861855

I should say, the error - Weight, double fill: 1.5 oz (43 oz) 43 oz should be 43 g
