The ColdAvenger Expedition Balaclava - High Performance Protection.
The Talus ColdAvenger high performance mask is an example of innovation for function and fashion. More than just a ski mask, the ColdAvenger has multiple athletic and industrial uses as a cold weather face protection mask that allows you to breathe freely while keeping your face warm and dry. This ultra warm balaclava is specifically engineered for cold weather action sports. It warms your skin and protects your airway while allowing totally free breathing.
The ColdAvenger ventilation face piece is made of medical grade plastic selected for human safety, bio-compatability, flexibility, inherent microbial resistance, and endurance (Read Technical Information). The soft shell stretch fabric is wind proof and water resistant with an inner fleece lining for a comfortable fit.
The Talus ColdAvenger is designed for a variety of winter outdoor activities where protection from cold is essential. Researched and developed in Northern Rocky Mountain winters and tested in snow and freezing weather, ColdAvenger keeps your face warm and dry while helping humidify inhaled air and allowing you to breathe freely. ColdAvenger has been used with comfort at -20°F. It is the ultimate ski mask for winter face protection during outdoor activities. Include it in your essential ski and snowboard gear. Ski, snowboard, snowmobile, heli-ski, hunt, cycle, motorcycle, or work in comfort outdoors with the Talus ColdAvenger.
How Does ColdAvenger Work?
ColdAvenger mixes inhaled cold air with exhaled warm air to achieve a dynamic balance of warmth while keeping the face dry. Inside mask temperatures are 40°F to 60°F higher than outside, depending on activity. The patent-pending ventilation design allows for easy breathing during exertion, a critical feature for high endurance outdoor activities. Moisture from exhaled air binds to the plastic piece, keeping the face dry.
ColdAvenger Performance Features & Benefits:
Cold weather protection of the face and airways not only contributes to comfort, but helps prevent cold-induced adverse health effects. Prolonged cold air exposure is a form of chronic trauma to the airway as demonstrated by research involving athletes participating in winter activities (Read Scientific Research). Normally, inhaled air is warmed to body temperatures and humidified at the same time by the moisture and warmth contained in the nose and upper airways. An unprotected face allows cold air to interfere with this warming and humidification process. ColdAvenger helps keep the temperature of the air around your face 40°F to 60°F higher than outside and helps to humidify inhaled air.
