Description - Cold Weather Mask
Polyester fleece with silk lining keeps you cozy while breathing freely in the uniquely styled patented design which prevents material from pulling into your mouth and nose. The mask covers nose, mouth and cheeks. Adjustable ear loops allow wearing the mask with helmets, earrings, hats and scarves. The Cold Weather Mask offers low resistance to air flow. It warms and humidifies cold, dry air without fogging glasses. Position eyeglasses over the fleece to keep "fog free" in most circumstances.

Wash and rinse the mask. Hand wring it well. Roll it between two unscented paper towels, then wear it damp. The polar fleece is spongy and so stays damp, humidifying the air you breathe. When it dries out, wash and wring the mask again. Both the fleece and the silk act as filters of particles.
Cold Weather Mask : polyester fleece, natural silk, cotton, hard plastic, latex-free polyester elastic.
Hand wash in cool water with an unscented liquid detergent which does not leave a residue, such as Seventh Generation Free and Clear laundry or dish detergent, Arm and Hammer for sensitive skin laundry detergent, or other "free and clear" detergent. Rinse well. For quicker dry, roll mask in a terry towel and hang it up, open.

The I Can Breathe!� Cold Weather Ski Mask is recommended by a doctor who is sensitive to cold and is a competitive skier:
Dr. Eric Heiligenstein, M.D., Quality Management and Outcomes Research, University of Wisconsin, wrote to I Can Breathe! Inc.: "Compared to all other masks I have tried, your cold weather mask has numerous advantages to an athlete.
The inhalation resistance was minimal even at a high level of exertion (90% maximum heart rate) and did little to impair performance.
The silk/fleece combination makes your mask the only one I have used that does not become rapidly saturated with moisture from exhalation. It seems like the moisture was ‘wicked’ from the silk into the fleece allowing inhaled air to be humidified but keeping the mask dry against your face.
One thing I have distinctly noticed is the warming effect of wearing the mask. I require less clothing as a result. During the recent cold period I was able to ski without problems at zero degrees or below. The cold weather mask reduces the cumulative effects of being exposed to cold air."
