Sizing - I am 5'1' and 120lbs. I ordered this in a small and it was too big under the eyes/nose area but the head and neck fit fine. I repurchased this in size Junior which ended up being a far better fit. The head and neck area are marginally smaller and still comfy, not too tight (it has pretty good stretch anyway).
If you wear regular glasses it does cause fogging, this happened as soon as I put them on, however, you can pull the bottom half up higher and rest your glasses on top which seems pretty secure. I haven't been able to test this while doing any outdoor activities yet but hoped this review might help others decide on size and avoid the hassle of returning if they are purchasing now trying to prep for the upcoming cold weather.
I give it only 4 stars b/c they could very much improve the fit (and stop the fogging of glasses) if they would make the area over the bridge of the nose moldable to fit everyone's nose snugly. That being said, it can easily be altered by adding a soft piece of wire. The seam is plush and thick so sliding the wire in shouldn't be a hassle.
The nose/mouth area lets breath in and out pretty easily through small mesh. The rest of the face (cheeks/jawline) and down the front of the neck is definitely wind proof as advertised. This is the first balaclava I have purchased that truly is windproof. The rest of the balaclava is wind resistant but a hat fits over it with ease.
