How do I measure the size of my face?
I was thinking about coupling this with my outdoor research Ninjaclava for superior face protection in minus 25 C weather and 30 mph wind.
So, does this thing work well enough for those conditions, if I want to have a warm face and not be bothered by wind?
Also, if anyone has coupled this with a windstopper balaclava like the one I mentioned, does it hold well and without a wind gap?
If you going for a wind and cold...take look at this:
If it not wind proof the wind will get in!
I bought this mask primarily to sleep in. I did not want a full balaclava. Instead, I use this mask in conjunction with my Black Rock Gear down hat and a buff. All 3 pieces offer a wide range of versatility being that I can use only the piece(s) that I want when I want.
When I initially ordered the mask I went by some of the measurements in the comments below. I ordered the medium because my measurements was within the quoted 20 - 24". However, when it arrived it was too small. I had to ship it back and reorder the large, so that kind of sucked paying shipping twice.
Anyway, the large fits me good. My head is not too big and I typically have to order S-M size hats. So, I would say the sizing runs small on these. I would suggest at least a size Large on adult men, and if your head is a little bigger than normal, I would go with the XL. (Besides, after having one too small, I would way rather have one that was a little big. At least it would work.)
Since the medium was too small for my head I did not get to use it yet. I did take it on a 3 night trip but I just couldn't get the velcro to stay connected so I didn't use it. I was kind of depressed because I think that this will make a great sleeping piece.
Normally, my nose and my chin will get cold at night if the temp is around 20 F or less, which is why I ordered this. My main concern is how will it manage moisture throughout a night sleeping in it. Unfortunately I cannot say at this time how it will do, but I feel like it will be ok. Just wearing it the holes around the mouth seem adequate for letting my breath pass through. As well, the nose piece is simply shaped to fit around my nose, but the underneath is open, so here again, breath is not trapped. Due to this and the fact that I usually breath through my nose when sleeping I feel like this mask will meet my needs.
As well, my size large weighs 1.1 oz so I am pretty happy with the weight. It would have been nicer to have came in at under an oz, but considering the benefit (comfort) it will provide, I can handle the 1.1 oz.
So far, even though I believe that the sizing is smaller than normal, I will still initially give this thing 5 stars. If my thoughts change I will annotate this "review."
I am not going to rob a bank with this one but it sure keeps my face warm on the ski his. Super soft liner next to my face keeps it toasty in the coldest conditions!
What is the weight on these?
Answering my own question...in case anyone else is interested.
A medium weighs 1 oz.
A large weighs 1.1 oz.
I am interested in this for sleeping in. I am not worried about it covering my head or my neck (I already have those covered as I want them to be), but instead my chin to my nose. In the winter, this part of my face gets really cold and if not for this I would easily sleep all night long. Is it fleece inside, and if not, then what is it? How does it handle condensation after a whole night, is it completely wet inside? How would anyone say that this would work to sleep in? Will the condensation escape at least a little? I cannot expect it all to escape, but I would hope some would. Also, does the inside rest against your chin/mouth when wearing it laying down? Thanks
Great for cold weather biking. Exactly what I needed!
would any outdoor enthusiasts out there have any recommendations for a good mask for cycling, hiking, running that would keep dust and pollen out
This is a pretty good little mask. It kept me warm enough, but never too hot. The breathing holes allow all the condensation from your breath to escape so you don't get that nasty damp feeling. My only hang up is that it doesn't go very far down your neck. I could feel cold air on my lower neck as I was riding up the chairlift even though my coat was zipped all the way up. I imagine wearing a mock turtle would solve the problem though. Still, I'm happy with it and love using it!
Unfortunately, I bought the wrong size (a medium instead of a small). There was too much extra fabric around my chin, making it difficult to buckle my helmet. However, this is my fault, not the product's.
I found the edges of the material to be a bit scratchy on the side of my neck, but this could be easily solved by tying a bandana underneath the mask. Also, whenever I moved the entire mask below my chin, I would have to take everything off in order to get it back to how it was.
It definitely did the job of keeping my face from freezing off. However, I would probably go with a balaclava, to avoid the issues that ensue when you move it below your chin.
whats the best way to figure out the perfect size to order?
measure circumference of head just below your nose. Size Medium fits 20 - 24 inches and size Large fits 22 - 26 inches
For masking against cold wind and snow, this thing works spectacular. The neoprene outer layer blocks the outside cold like a firewall, and it fits so snugly with such a soft layer of fleece that you can't help but love the feel it has against the skin of your face.
The only complaint I have is that it is only a facemask: you're gonna have to wear your beanie with your neck-gaiter, and then tie the mask around. It can move around and when you put the mask down under your chin, it's kind of annoying, plus the back part has moved so when you pull it back up over your nose and cheeks, it becomes loose and less tight.
This is why I'm going to buy the combo scarf or clava soon. I recommend to buy one of these two instead.
what size do i know to get?? is xl going to be big?
Yes the XL is fairly big. If you've got an average sized head you may want to wait. The best thing is to jump on "live chat" and ask those folks. They'll be able to look up if they have any on order and if they do an approximate ship date.
I wear glasses. Will I have a problem with them fogging up wearing this product?
Yes you will, unless you can figure out a way not to breathe:) Really though, they do tend to help your glasses fog quite a bit more than without.
How do you know what size to order?
An average sized head will usually take a medium to large.
I bought one of these for my daughter and couldn't believe how she no longer complained about being cold when skiing in 10 degree weather with 40mph winds so I decided to get one for myself. I didn't think I would like it that much but now I can't imagine skiing without it. It fits very well and doesn't get all wet from your breath like the ones you may have used a long time ago.
I bought a snowmobile at the beginning of winter and immediately found out I needed something warm on my face so I bought this mask. It's so comfortable that now I wear it for skiing, riding my scooter to school, I even wore it skydiving two weeks ago! I keep it in my backpack and pull it out all the time. What a great buy, I can't believe I got along without it all this time.
I bought this after a long weekend ride through unexpected cold & wet weather on my motorcycle. A friend had a similar one from Harley, but it wasn't as thick or water resistant. And, the price was low!! This one is great! Love it. Need to buy a couple more for friends.
