Yep, one main reason why I really like them!!!!! I only wear it once I'm at the top and ready to ride, or on an open chair, with the rest of the time down under my chin!!!!!

Plus they stay put!!!!! I always had heaps of trouble with other brands moving around but the BlackStrap is just a well cut bit of fabric!!!!!

applor I backed the Shield face mask kickstarter and used it for 2.5 weeks in Breck.
It's my first use of a 'full' face mask - I normally use a buff up to my chin but on cold/windy days I need full cover of my cheeks and nose.
The Shield worked well except for one big issue. Without a mouth hole when moving at speed and breathing rapidly the mask would get sucked against my mouth and you can't breathe.

This was easily fixed by cutting a small diamond mouth hole and had no further issues.
They may be doing a mouth hole for future releases.

Otherwise the fabric was good, soft on the inside and blocks all wind. If it gets very cold the fabric goes stiff.

It did its job for me on the trip. As mentioned I cannot compare to other face masks though.

I'll admit I've never tried either of those, anyone that has got the BlackStrap has been very happy with it!!!!!

It was recommended to me, and it's a winner compared to every other mask I've tried!!!!!

I use the outdoor research Yowie's (or thermal yowie's on really cold days). No fogging if you fold it right.. but you have to fold it right around the nose. It's really easy to pull down and pull back up once you get used to it. Thing doesn't freeze either.

I've also tried the celtek facemask, the nike pro combat facemask, the under armour facemask, the dakine maurauder thing, the shemaugh thing (which is my favorite in theory but the thing gets soaked once and is ruined!), and an airhole bandana. You could say that I have a problem.
