ColdAvenger team member Bob Affholder sent some ColdAvenger Facemasks to his friend Richard Mundinger for Christmas. Richard distributed them to his son Clay and some of his friends for a ski trip to Colorado where the fellas put them to the test. The three wearers loved the masks and how well they preformed in the biting cold weather. Read their appreciation below:
I really appreciate you giving us those darth vader facemasks. Wearing one really helped the last couple of days at 12,000 feet in Aspen Colorado with the stormy weather, 10 degrees with 40 mph winds and virtually no visibility what so ever. Long story short, I owe that mask for me not getting frostbite on my nose and comments like, “Sick mask man!”

Dear Mr. Affholder:
I was under the distinct impression that “snowfall” implied snow moving towards the ground. Imagine my surprise, then, when today, as we were riding the chairlift, the snow was flying up the hill towards us. Perhaps this is because I am a Tucson native, and perhaps a local would speak differently, but I would call today cold, rough, wet, and windy. I did not, however, feel its effects, and I owe this in large part to the masks. I can think of few things worse than a cold nose and wind-chapped lips, and the mask kept my facial features warm and toasty without imparting fog to my goggles, as mufflers and masks are apt to do. I wholeheartedly appreciated the gear.

Dear Mr. Affholder,
First off, I just want to thank you for the amazing facemask presents that you gave to my father for our family. The facemasks have been a huge part in staying warm with the impeccably cold weather that we have endured over the last two days, and one can only imagine it won’t be getting warmer anytime soon. If it was sitting on the ski lift going directly into ferocious winds, or hiking to the summit of Snowmass, only able to see the person in front of you at times, the facemasks allowed myself to breathe just fine and keep my face warm and away from any sort of frostbite. Again I just want to say thank you for your generosity. I wish you a happy holiday, and I look forward to playing golf with you in the new year.
We are glad the ColdAvenger made those freeze-gnar conditions tolerable!
