just picked this up @ Sports Authority:















this one is in a 'USA' theme but they had an assortment of different colors/designs which all sucked ass.

It was on sale for around $8 bones, so I picked it up instead of the $25 UA hood made of the same material. Usually I just rock an orange bandana, so I'll post a short review once I test this @ Keystone tomorrow.

Nice! I've been considering that exact facemask (looking for something that I can breath freely through but not an Airhole.) Could you please put a small review here?
Oh, and thanks for being the first person on the tinternet to actually upload an image of it being worn! You deserve a freakin medal.
Hmm...the lyrca thing isn't on the nose section like it is in the image.

Got my self a merino buff, so far so good. Only owrn it on my walk to work in the am, but she feels nice and really easy to breathe through. Did not feel damp after my 30min walk.

this facemask worked great and I recommend it to anyone in need, with $10 bones to drop.

Out in the field:



Only problem I had was my goggles foggin' up like crazy.

The hood can be turned into any of those options and it's fully breatheable. Highly recommended.

+1 I have the black one and works great.

Hey yo. I just got a bunch of new designs in for AVALON7, with more coming December 10th...

The Heavybreather is back in stock if anyone is still looking.

I'm super stoked on the new Astro Tshield tube design by Mike Parillo (Travis Rice's board graphic designer). It is super sick.

Have a great season everyone!

Did you have it tucked up under the bottom of your goggles?

Just saw this. Used it a few times now so far my take:

It's a pretty warm mask since it has a liner on the inside. The nose has a material going over it, and there is free space under for your nostrils and nose space, then the black mesh covers your mouth for your breath, so there is no fogging coming up. It even goes over the ears, keeping them really warm. It lines perfectly along your cheek bone line so it doesn't obstruct your goggles at all. Only thing I don't like is that if you listen to music, using ear buds really suck because it's a bitch getting them in and out without having to readjust the mask. It goes on by velcro for easy on and off, but that can also be a fault as you'd have to pull it apart and reapply to adjust it correctly. Can leave it attached and not make it cover your ears if you wear a beanie and works just as well if you want easy on and off

Thanks for your opinion! I do listen to music but that shouldn't be a problem because I just put my earphones in the audio ear flaps on my Giro helmet.

then this should be decent. Idk if the helmet will obstruct you being able to adjust it idealy in the back though
