~ In-game description

The Balaclava is a full head cloth mask that covers the entire head down to the base of the neck, with openings in the front for the wearer's eyes and mouth. It protects the person wearing it from cold temperatures, as well helps to conceal their identity.

The green and beige balaclava variants are the best for camouflage as they hide your face and blend in with the environment. However, balaclavas can also get wet, causing your character to become colder.
