Walking outside when it’s cold for an extended period of time is not fun. No matter how many layers you put on, the cold will eventually seep in. If it’s frigid to the point of being dangerous for your lungs, then you really have no choice but to cover your face unless you’d rather risk getting sick. For most, a scarf will do, but if you’re out for a while, you’re not exactly getting a breath of fresh air.
Having cloth over your face makes little beads of condensation from your breath that unpleasantly press onto your face, and while our breath isn’t always bad, it doesn’t smell of roses for sure. If you wish you could breath normally without freezing your nose off, then the Subzero Warm Breath Balaclava will help you to breath in a “microclimate” thanks to the balaclava fleece and a special ventilation chamber. This lets you inhale fully, and will trap some of your heated exhale to keep the humidity up to almost 80% higher than exterior conditions, and the temperature 60 degrees Fahrenheit warmer.
The material is soft, durable, and thanks to the ventilation chamber, you won’t have moisture or fog to deal with on your face, glasses or goggles. It is also wind-resistant and breathable, meaning you’ll have at least some measure of comfort when Mother Nature is not on your side. It is designed to be worn with goggles, and you can remove the chamber if you so choose. This will cost you $79.95, and would be perfect for windy winter walks.
