Never seen this before. It's one of those "WTF?" things.
Dog, how well do they work?

I don't know. I just saw it on rei.com.

I wouldn't wear one though! Unless you're dressed 100% completely in black, never talk, and no one at the hill knows who you are. That could be rather humorous.

OK so I have been up to mission ridge WA twice. I used my new dakine mask that I posed. It was pretty good. very Breathable but my goggles ended up fogging so I pulled the mask down to my mouth so that the fogging would stop. But if u don't have that problem I think the mask will be very breathable. The part that is mesh got kinda cold when my lips touched it. i wish the mesh came over the mouth and nose. it only cover ur mouth. hope that helps.

Thanks Pow, that's awesome! Nice to hear it was better than last season's mask. I was either thinking this, 686, or an Airhole. This would be the cheapest, and everything I have from Dakine so far is really high-quality for reasonable prices.

I was wondering, how much moisture/sweat did that mask occupy when you used it? The problem with the one I have now has no mesh or hole, so it gets all wet inside and then I feel weird when putting it back on after a break for a cup of tea and some biscuits. It kind of smells, too so I have to wash mine frequently.

ya it smells bad for sure. leave it in ur car for a couple days it smells like a wet dirty dog. i didn't really take a break so i cant say. last year i didn't really have a problem with wearing it all day. it seems to slip off sometimes.
i cant seem to be able to wear a mask and goggles at the same time with out fogging. how do u guys wear a mask with goggles? i tuck it under the goggles but then they fog.

This is the one I have now, and the goggles don't really fog up. Well, they used to, but last season I got a pair of Spy goggles and didn't have any problems while using the same mask.


It's made of neoprene, I think. The nose piece is open and it has very small holes around the mouth area. The nose piece and the anti-fog coating inside the goggles prevents the fogging, and a do have it tucked under the goggles. The goggles also have a load of vents under the and above the lens.

When you breath inside a mask, the warm air you exhale rises, so it gets under your goggles and causes them to fog up. It might help if you wore the mask on the outside of your jacket so it could ventilate more, although that might feel odd.

The Airhole mask I'm considering would prevent this. It's the Polar mask, but the outside is made of fleece so I think it would end up getting just as wet. Sometimes I just can't win! I'll ask that dude with the 686 mask sometime if he's used it yet and if he has how wet it got.
Thanks.

im looking for a mask like that but haven't gone to the shop yet to look at them. i like the fact that the nose isn't covered up. thats my only problem with the current mask. i might end up buy one like that or something like that.

It stays on pretty good and is fine under a helmet strap. The smell and the moisture is pretty much the same as how you described.

Seirus has been the standard around here for years. They work pretty well but I hate the velcro on that mask. It's hard to adjust without the velcro coming apart and getting it back together with gloves on is difficult. They do make some nice Balaclava's though.



Or the full size...



Personally, I rock the turtle fur. It is lose so it stays off my face and allows me to breath easier. I tuck it under the foam on my goggles and do not have fog issues either.
