Facemask Friday: Wrong Gear

27 Apr, 2012

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 black mask and look like a bank robber, now plenty of companies offer bandanas, tubes, balaclava’s in an assortment of designs and colors.

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.

This Wrong Gear Warrior mask (seen on the right) is deeply inspired by the Shemagh Arabian head scarf to bring the WARRIOR out in you!!! Recommended for warmer/clear riding days when you just need to keep the chill off, the Warrior Mask is a sure hit! The Warrior Mask sits nice over the nose with no sag due to the contour fit, and features a Velcro closure at the back for easy adjusting and no bunching under your beanie.

Steps to win the Wrong Gear Facemask:
1. Answer this question in your comment (make sure to use your correct email address):  What keeps you busy during the off-season?
2. You have till midnight tonight, April 27 to enter for this facemask.
3. All the 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 Wrong Gear for being part of Facemask Friday!

    Cutting my lawn. It’s all weeds, so it grows like weeds.

    Last summer, I tried biking, but I fell off and busted my chin, somehow giving me an unfounded fear of bikes. :/
