Facemask Friday: NXTZ

22 Apr, 2011

When it comes to keeping your face warm on the mountain, facemasks do the job.  On the deep powder days, they keep you from breathing in the snow.  On the sunny days, they keep you from getting burnt.  On windy days, they keep your face from going numb.  Gone are the days that you have to wear a basic boring mask and look like a bank robber, now plenty of companies offer bandanas, tubes, balaclava’s in an assortment of designs and colors.

Today is the sixth Facemask Friday of many!  Facemask Friday is my new contest to give you guys rad facemasks to wear on the mountain!  Check back every Friday I’ll be giving away a facemask in a different brand/design/style.  To enter the contest, read the directions below and leave your comment by midnight tonight.  I’ll announce the winner in this post tomorrow morning.

You could win the NXTZ balaclava (seen on the right).  It’s a single layer dry-tx mesh balaclava with flat lock stitching, keeping you warm, dry and comfortable, fits your head like a glove and performs how it’s intended to.

Steps to win the NXTZ Balaclava:

1.  Answer this question in your comment (make sure to use your correct email address): NXTZ uses three words to describe the products…name one of the words.

2.  You have till midnight tonight, April 22nd to enter for this facemask.

3.  All the correct answer comments will be written down and one winner will be randomly drawn from a bowl or kitchen pot ( you know like the lottery).

4.  A winner will be announced in this blog post after midnight.  I like to sleep so I will probably will pick a winner tomorrow morning.

Thanks to NXTZ for being part of Facemask Friday!
