Another great review for the ColdAvenger Hunter from 4 All Outdoors! The ColdAvenger Hunter was tested and written up by Coy Starnes, a nature lover, hunter, winter camper and biker. He suffers from asthma, and the cold weather hinges his ability to thoroughly enjoy his outdoor workouts when it is too cold. He is a recumbent biker and will continue to test the ColdAvenger through the winter. His initial thoughts:
“Looking for that perfect gift for the cold weather bank robber on your list? So far I have found the mask does indeed warm up and moisten the air I am breathing. It is very easy to put on and take off. And last but not least, I can talk while wearing this face mask because the part over my mouth and nose does not touch them. So I can freely say “Stick-um-up”.
First, my mask covers my neck, ears and most of my face from just below my eyes. The mask has a medical-grade plastic ventilator that fits over my mouth and nose which “mixes inhaled cold air with exhaled warm air to achieve dynamic balance of warmth and humidity.” It has an adjustable vent system that allows me to increase or decrease the flow of air.”
In doing his research, Coy saw all the reputable athletes on the ColdAvenger team, further solidifying its authenticity and performance. ColdAvenger has great testimonials from everyday athletes, outdoor industrial workers and asthma sufferers.
“One thing that really impressed me was the list of users provided on the website, including several world famous mountaineers, skiers and sled dog racers. I seriously doubt I will use my mask for anything nearly as demanding but it is nice to know it has already been tested and approved by such elite athletes.”
Coy tells us he is looking forward to testing the face mask for sleeping and winter camping. He’ll have to wait until temperatures drop a bit, but knows the necessity of protecting his face and safe-guarding his breathing during cold nights.
“In really cold weather I find I can stay warm pretty much everywhere but my face, and in particular my nose. I don’t mind covering my head and eyes with a watch cap but I am always reluctant to cover my nose because it results in a wet spot where I breath on/through the material. I am also reluctant to do the same with my sleeping bag. However, if my nose gets so cold I can’t sleep, I will resort to tucking my head down inside my sleeping bag where it tends to dampens everything close by.”
Thanks to Coy and 4 All Outdoors for writing a great piece on the ColdAvenger Hunter. We look forward to further posts about how well the mask performed this winter. Just don’t let us catch you on America’s Most Wanted holding up a bank with our mask!
Stay Out Longer!
