Face covers suck! because I cant breathe!
 
Whenever I wear a bandanna, my UA Hood or some face / nose / chin cover thing I got at a resort ski shop I have major problems breathing!.. Anyone else have these problems?

No. It's just you....

Sam I Am 02-03-2010 10:02 PM

Actually, I'm kinda interested. Has anyone found a UA hood that doesn't have you screaming "I can't breathe!" ?

I don't bother wearing any face protection anymore because my nose just feels crushed against my face....

I use a fleece mask that velcros in the back. It works fine for me. Does not smash my nose. Think I got it at sports authority

Damn, I just bought a UA hood, guess Ill have to learn to hold my breath!

I use the UA hood and just pull it down after a run, any other time I feel like I can breathe ok, but yeah anything covering the mouth or nose is going to affect breathing. Unless of course you get one of those wack ski masks with the eyes and nose cut out, and if you do, get the neon orange like the ski club kids at our resort always wear.

I didn't use the UA hood or any facemask earlier this year, and ended up getting a tab bit of frostbite on my chin, never even felt cold, but not fun.

Ouch, So what happened to your chin?



Also I heard about bandanna's w/ holes in them? (i could just cut a hole myself just interested in once that come w/ them?) anyone know what i'm talking about?

The Rideqi masks are breathable, freeze rarely but is thawed easily, but can fog your goggles if you have it on to tight.

Also the ear strap things didn't fit my face, so that's a lost feature for myself.

And it's a bit thin... But on those cold days I wear both a bandana and a Rideqi and I pull them both on when needed. I put the QI on the inside so I can still breath.

1. go to a workwear or hunting store
2. find a balaclava or neck gaiter or whatever that has breath holes
3. ????
4. profit!

They all fog my goggles, but I think I have a goggle problem more than a mask problem.
