Ian Hall finished second overall in the 6633 Ultra in March 2013. We want to say congrats on the amazing accomplishment! The 6633 Ultra is a 352-mile race from Eagle Plains in the Yukon to the Arctic Ocean at Tuktoyaktuk which is through the Arctic Circle. This race is a non-stop, self-sufficient foot race. At the beginning of the 2013 race there were 20 starters and only four that finished. Hall’s race time was six days and 19 hours which earned him second place. Check out the pictures below of him at the Arctic Circle and during the race wearing his favorite cold weather face mask, the ColdAvenger!

It was a great hockey season this year for team ColdAvenger. They finished the regular season with a record of ten wins and four losses. In the middle of March they went into tournament time ranking 4th overall. They won the first round, three to zero, against the 5th placed team with only six players on the ColdAvenger team. The second round they challenged the 1st place team with only seven players on the CA team and the other team had eleven players. They lead the game one to zero until the last two minutes when the other teamed scored and tied it up. This took the game into overtime were neither team scored so they went in to a double overtime shootout. Team ColdAvenger sent Carl, Health and John as the shooters and they ended up scoring and winning two to one after the shootout! They had the three game series championships round and they came out on top of the defending champions, The Missoula Club. Congratulations to all of the athletes on a great season. Check out the image below of the trophy that team ColdAvenger took home and drank PBR out of.

Check out the segment that KPAX TV aired on our involvement with The Coldest Journey. As you may have heard, Sir Ranulph Fiennes is leading a team of explorers to conquer the last great polar challenge: crossing Antarctica in winter. Their remarkable attempt aims to raise $10m for Seeing is Believing, and we’re thrilled that ColdAvenger is involved. Dennis Bragg of KPAX News says when referring to the expedition, “Missoula-based Talus Outdoor Technologies’ popular ColdAvenger masks will be a key piece of the gear. The company’s Phil Stempin said Fiennes’ team researched the top gear in the world and chose Talus after testing out its products.” Watch the rest of the story by clicking on the image below.
