A : Absolutely, you can wear at the same time. Glasses, goggles, sunglasses

Q : Are they the same size? Suitable for women or children?

A : Yes, they are suitable for women. For children, the head may be a bit loose, but will be great under his skin helmet.They are sssooooo soft and comfy.

Q : How breathable is it?

A : In my experience with this type of equipment , this balaclava is very good. On a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being no restriction to airways at all, this would rate an 8. That being said, any physical device covering nostrils and mouth will be somewhat of a hindrance to breathing and air exchange. My wife and I each use one and are very happy with them. We use them almost daily.
