What is a balaclava?
A balaclava is a form of cloth headgear that covers the whole head, exposing only part of the face. Often, only the eyes, or eyes and mouth, are left exposed. The name "balaclava" comes from the town of Balaklava, near Sevastopol in Crimea, Ukraine.
During the Crimean War, balaclavas were sent to British troops to protect them from the bitter cold weather. This type of headgear was also known in the 19th century as an Uhlan cap or Templar cap. When made for those serving in the armed forces, they are usually known as "helmet liners".
