This is the fleece balaclava preferred by high-altitude mountaineers and Antarctic scientists because it humidifies and warms winter air for comfortable breathing. A special ventilation chamber in its integrated mask 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 humidity up to 80% higher and temperatures up 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 soft and durable, 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 balaclava itself is breathable, wind-resistant Polartec fleece, with hook-and-loop flaps shaped to fit comfortably over goggles and helmets; allows wearer to remove chamber without removing the balaclava. One size fits all. (1 lb.)

I'm a disabled Vietnam Vet. I have had a real badheart attack and need something to keep warm air around my nose when I go out in cold weather.

not needed unless it is very cold, but when it is, the hood is most helpful
from Alberta, Canada
My husband found that his glasses fogged up, which he did not like. Offer in a more durable material.

Healthy product for use in very cold weather. Helps to protect lungs and useful for many outdoor activities in winter. Doesn't need improvements when it works correctly.
from Fenton, MI
The attachment allows for adjustability in cold weather situations. It is awesome for snow skiing and is comfortable to wear. It was very expensive, though it does perform great.
