There are few things more uncomfortable than having to wander around in very cold temperatures with a face full of freezing and nothing but a scarf to take the strain. Even nice fluffy coat hoods don’t really do the job when temps reach sub-zero, which is why you need something seriously industrial grade to make your life comfortable.
The Cold Avenger Balaclava is just such a product. The fleece lined headgear comes with an integrated mask which traps exhaled air to provide a nicely pre-heated micro-climate near your face to keep things toasty. It’s kind of like when you cup your hands over your face to feel warmer from your own breath.
The other advantage of the product, apart from delivering temperatures up to 60 degrees F warmer than the outside temp, is the fact that it makes you look almost, but not quite, like Darth Vader on a good day. Which should mean people at the bus stop will give you lots of room and stop with the snarky comments about your day-glo sno-shoes. The price for all this warm cool style is $79.95.
