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.)

improved quality of life
By Darth Donald
from Palm Springs, CA
Love this mask. I have severe emphysema and was not able to go outside in cold weather. This masked changed that. It warms the outside air and I don't cough anymore when I'm outside. It improved my quality of life, for sure.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

not for big noses
rubbed against the bridge of my nose.
By old man on the prairie
from North Dakoka
Husband loves the mask. Makes outdoor winter work more comfortable, warmer and more enjoyable. Keeps warm air blowing into his eyes keeping the goggles frost free.
Just what I needed!
from Columbus, OH
Breathing cold air is one of the triggers for my asthma making it difficult to enjoy being outdoors. This mask allows me to walk around without having to reach for my inhaler.

What a disappointment
from Portland, ME
I live in Maine but I like to walk, particularly at night. This seemed like a great idea. The mask doesn't fit at all. Perhaps it is the shape of my head or my narrow face, but the minute I get into the cold air, my glasses are totally fogged up. There should be a bendable strip on the bridge of the nose so that you can fit the mask to the shape of your nose and seal off the air flow. I will try to glue on a strip from one of the dust masks in the hope that I can close it off. I really would like it to work. Perhaps it should come in various sizes.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I have health problems and can not breathe cold air - this works very well. Much better than a scarf. It will not win a beauty contest but that is not its function - it warms the air before it gets to my lungs. 5 stars

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

This is a great product, can't go wrong
from Grinnell, IA
We live in Iowa, so winters can be very cold and damp. This item has been a life saver for my son and husband, as both have respiratory problems and this mask allows them to enjoy the outdoors more.
Cold weather solution for asthmatics!
By Windswept Hill
from Farmington, MN
We bought this as a gift for a friend who has suffered from asthma for his entire life. Cold, dry winter weather is a terrible challenge. In our sub-zero cold snap we got this gift for him and it got tested immediately in -50 degree windchills. It worked! He has been able to frame a house outside without spasms. It is as described.
works for me
have chronic lungs issues and this product helpsreduce these issues when outside using my snowblower. the cold air aggravates my condition, and this mask eliminates any issues with the cold weather.
