I don't mind bringing life back to threads nothing wrong with that at all.
Not all threads deserve this though....

I bought one of these wrong gear masks a few weeks ago. I was suckered into the small features that they had on their "Ultimate" style mask.

The features are simple:

- elastic band sewn into the top of the mask
- little elastic loops on either side of the mask where you can secure your earphones.
- polyester mesh on the inside where the nose and mouth are

Believe it or not, the sewn in elastic band for the mask works wonders. I can pull the mask down and pull it back up easily, the mask doesn't move around at all so it's always secured in the same position. This to me is a lifesaver, because I have to pull my mask on and off a lot when riding (it gets too hot when I'm moving and too cold when I'm on the chairlift).

The elastic loops are also cool since I also take my headphones on and off when I ride with other ppl. I was always irritated by my earphones that's trying to go all over the place.

The polyester mesh also seems to be pretty good, seems like they can wick away moisture easily.

As for looks, bandanas make people look like bank robbers anyway. Shemaghs are just the next step up It does look a bit outrageous but that's how I dress when I board anyway... bright colors... skittle bag... I wear suit and tie to work so I prefer something a bit wack on the mountains.

I have four of the real ones; I got them in Iraq and Afghanistan. Honestly now all they do is get worn when I'm snowboarding and make me look like a hipster when off the mountain...when people try to give me shit, and say something smartass like "where did you get that urban outfitters?" -I just laugh, and ask them for a PBR.

@ Shred





According to you I can't wear camo unless I served over seas? or was an enemy of the state,great mentality. You did not address the people who are actually from the area, rather categorized them all as terrorists. You are a racist plain and simple.

I have a couple too and got them during my worldly travels which included the middle east.

Not very functional for a winter accessory, as they get wet and freeze over. I prefer the Airhole Balaclava. On a warm day u can get away with one though
