The ColdAvenger Classic Fleece Half-Mask is the standard for lightweight warmth and breathability and will provide the perfect level of protection for most wintertime adventure. The Classic is made with a breathable, quick-drying and non-pilling Classic Fleece that offers superior warmth without weight. The patented ColdAvenger ventilator keeps your face dry, and your airways relaxed with warm and humidified air while allowing you to breathe freely without resistance, even during high-endurance activities. The ColdAvenger Classic Fleece design allows you to wear the half-mask as a neck gaiter when full coverage is not needed, and the soft and stretchy closure design allows for a custom fit and universal sizing.
Classic 200 weight fleece breathes and insulates very well but is not windproof or water resistant. Great for folks who are less active or moving slower in the cold.
Breathing cold air can cause chronic trauma to the airway. The job of ColdAvenger is to prevent this trauma and maximize your physical and mental performance in the cold by creating a microclimate of comfort around your face and airway. The unique ventilator design of ColdAvenger mechanically mixes inhaled cold air with exhaled warm air and allows for easy, no resistance breathing. The ventilator binds exhaled moisture to its plastic surface to keep the face dry and helps prevent airway drying by returning this moisture during breathing. ColdAvenger allows for unrestricted nasal and mouth breathing, both critical for maximum outdoor performance. Nasal breathing not only helps humidify the airway, but also provides for increased flow of oxygen and blood to the periphery of the lungs where more efficient oxygen exchange occurs to enhance athletic performance.
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 -20F. 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 40F to 60F 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 40F to 60F higher than outside and helps to humidify inhaled air.
