This is the fleece mask preferred by high-altitude mountaineers and Antarctic scientists because it humidifies and warms winter air for comfortable breathing. A special ventilation chamber lets wearers inhale full, unhindered breaths while trapping a small amount of heated, humid exhalation. The result is a comfortable, fully oxygenated "microclimate" inside the mask with up to 80 percent humidity and temperatures 40° F to 60° F warmer than outside air. Medical studies by the American College of Sports Medicine show such a microclimate is healthier for the lungs, as excessive exposure to cold, dry air can trigger asthmatic symptoms. The medical-grade, microbe-resistant polyurethane in the chamber bonds with the humidity in the air, keeping moisture off the face and preventing fog on glasses and goggles. The mask itself is breathable, wind-resistant Polartec fleece, with hook-and-loop flaps shaped to fit comfortably over goggles and helmets. One size fits all. (2 1/2 oz.)

Subzero Warn Breath Mask
By Grammy Ex
from Pinckney Michigan
So far, this has been wonderful for my spouse who has lung issues. The cold air bothers him tremendously and this seems to be a great solution to his problem
Its the best mask for Canadian winter
from Edmonton AB
I used it for outdoor work. It helps me a lot.
jperforms as advertised
from New England
I work on the docks along a river in NH where the winds, rain and snow seem to blow sidways. The best purchase I've made, from a discresionary perspective, in a long, long time.
from Saskatoon, SK
This keeps the whole face so warm while skiing. I can breathe more freely than a neck warmer. Needs something else inserted in the mask to enable it to do what it claims.
from Sault Ste. Marie, ON
It allows me to be outside in subzero weather as I have lung fibroids and the cold makes me cough and it is hard to breath at all. I wish it came in another color besides black, cream color would be nice.
from New Berlin, NY
Easy to wear. Below expectation. Not up to temperatures below 20 degrees. Works well otherwise.It functions well for me - is easy to put on & easy to wear I don't know what to suggest.
