Varza Let us know how that goes, please? Pulling the mask over your nose I mean.

I just got my Phunkshun stuff yesterday (shipping mess-up, so I went the Amazon route). It looks and feels awesome, and I was thinking I would pull it up over my nose as well, since one of the things I want to use it for is sun protection.

I can't go up until two weeks for now (I'm going to die!), so no in-use experience as of yet.

I got the SL and it was plenty fine when I hit creek a few weeks ago, and it was probably around 15F I would say, maybe 20.

I would get a DL if I were going to Killington again and it was -10 with windhchill, but like I said the SL worked beautifully.

Next thing I need to try is putting the mask on my nose and under the goggles like all these olympic dudes do, although still I am extremely afraid of fogging because as soon as it happens once it never ends X_X

Snowrax How do these compare to Avalon 7 mesh tubes?

I'm not sure what Amazon's shipping rates are to Canada, but all the Phunkshun masks are available on Amazon. Free shipping to U.S.

MarshallV82 I just buy the cheap wal-mart neck warmer things you can pull up. My googles never fog up.
I guess I run a little cooler


I very rarely wear face masks though, it has to be like -15F before I consider it. I hate them.

DIESEL One word, Swag.

Got my Phunkshun wear SL the other day and got to try it out at Creek on Friday. I believe it was like 15 degrees or something, and I was absolutely loving it (my face anyway). Only problem I kept having, which I said earlier in the thread is my little nose would get cold on the lift, although the wind wouldn't penetrate the SL to hit my face, just my exposed nose.

All in all, I love this thing, and the only way I can see it keeping my nose truly out of harms way is if I were to seal the goggles over the mask, except I would worry about my exhaust shooting into my goggles?

Does anyone know if this is true or not, or how to protect the nose without putting the mask under goggles?

Make sure the goggles seal against skin only, not over your mask in any way.

See, that's what I thought but if it's <-5F your nose becomes an icicle and you can get some severe wind burn

Some people say it goes both ways, but from what I'm realizing is that it really depends on how breathable your facemasks is and if your steam will run up into the mask, or out and away from the seal of your goggles.

To your opinion though, I keep the mask out from under the goggles as well. Do you have any magic though, GYPSY, on how to prevent your nose from falling off in the occurance of sub zero temps? Tell me your secrets, gypsy.
