1. Water Resistant GORE(r) WINDSTOPPER(r)
Designed to give you the ultimate facemask, the supreme GORE(r) WINDSTOPPER(r) facemask features a windproof, water-repellent and highly breathable membrane on the forehead, ears and neck. This makes it perfect for cold descents or very windy conditions. It has a fleece bonded backing with a velcro flap closure and a printed logo on the front.
It is a great piece of equipment to have when you are out in the mountains and it is a necessity for cycling in extreme weather. The windproof, water resistant and highly breathable membrane stops the build up of condensation and sweat. It is also lightweight and comfortable, which makes it ideal for use in any situation.
Gore is most associated with their ‘Gore-Tex’ products, which are most often used for waterproof and windproof applications. However, they have been pushing in a different direction for a while with their ‘Infinium’ product range, which is lighter, thinner, softer and more flexible than Gore-Tex is, but still totally windproof. They have a range of Infinium gloves, jackets and run/XC tights which are all really great quality pieces of kit. It’s definitely worth checking out the Infinium range, especially if you are a fan of Gore-Tex but want something a little lighter, softer and more breathable for your next outdoor adventure. Hopefully, this will become more popular over time. If not, you can always just pick up a pair of traditional Gore-Tex products as well. They are a lot cheaper too. We have had a few people buy them, so you might want to consider it! Thanks for reading our reviews, have a great day! And, if you need any more advice on any of our products or services please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
2. Fleece Bonded Backing
The bonded fleece of the supreme facemask is an elegant, lightweight material that keeps you warm, and is also durable enough to stand up to your wear and tear. The fleece is backed by one of WeatherBond’s most durable PVC membranes, which is heat-weldable for monolithic seals and is highly chemical resistant. It also comes with a built-in velcro flap closure and printed logo.
The best part about this bonded fleece is that it keeps you cool without compromising on style. The fleece is a brushed microfiber material that offers an impressive amount of breathability. The fabric is also remarkably flexible, making it an excellent choice for light jackets and casual outerwear. The bonded fleece is a definite must-have for your next outdoor adventure.
If you’re looking for a new way to stay warm while on the go, look no further than this bonded fleece facemask! You won’t regret it.
