Balaclava's are for protection. They protect also your identity. Some are flame resistant (Nomex), water repellant and protects a person from scratches.

:ph34r: Wow, guys, thanks for the replies. You answered my question and then some.

So, basically, if you're in the SF, you don't want the bad guys to identify you, and if you're in a cold climate, it's handy for keeping you warm.

And if you're an irregular serving in the militia, it helps if you're ordered to do some "ethnic cleansing" and don't want the local populace to pick you out and go after you... or the UN to arrest you for war crimes.

Most people who wear balaclavas do it for keep their ID hidden.
If you go on a missions like commandos (elimination, massacre ect.), hunting terrorists, Organized crime/drug dealers (Brazil's case), you sure dont want to be identified, because they can retaliate on you and your wife and kids. Thats very important if there reporters and media peoplo on the area.

IIRC, there's also an intimidation factor with balaclavas. When you really can't see too much of someone's face, they kind of become inhuman, to a certain extent. Prob not its main purpose, but I guess it works.

Any monkey with 3d Studio Max, Photoshop, and the internet to do the modeling for them, can mod. It takes real effort and talent to make something worth downloading.

Psychological intimidation?

Wearing a wrestling mask would have a greater affect then.

''OMG! MIL MASCARAS KICKED DOWN MY DOOR!''

''Dude,Mil Mascaras just pistol whipped me!''
''Righ on man''

''Me too man''
''Dude, La Parka's dancing with your girlfriend''
''Ahh man''
