The Washington DC area shutdown on Monday. We, in the NorthEast, are braced for a snow storm scheduled to arrive tonight. Depending on the area we can expect between 4" and 18" of the white stuff. What perfect timing!!! We will take our ColdAvenger Pro out for its FirstUse trial :-)
The ColdAvenger is a product from Talus Outdoor Technologies. These folks are located in the Northern Rocky Mountains of Montana so they know about cold. Their motto is "Stay Out Longer."
The ColdAvenger mask is made with a stretchy soft shell encasing a medical grade plastic ventilator. The mask is windproof, water repellent, and fits snugly even when wearing a helmet. The generous velcro fastener makes it easy to custom-fit the mask around the face, forming a breathable barrier against the cold.
The interior of the nose cone has an adjustible vent which may be turned to reduce the air flow by up to 40%. It removes easily for cleaning. There is a foam nose piece which may be added to the cone for an even better fit and to help prevent fogging of eyewear.
We, for one, are looking forward to this storm as we plan to take the ColdAvenger out and see how it compares to all of the other masks we have in the RainyDaySports office. Look for the ColdAvenger FirstUse report when we come back in. If this mask is as good as the claims by Talus, we may be outside a good long time! [Permalink] -ColdAvenger FirstLook
