Model: Wilson G.
The best thing about the Gore Bike Wear Universal Face Warmer is that it does what it says it will do. It protects my face and ears during my chilly commute to work. I'm miserable every time I venture into the sharp, cold air without it.
Why does it work? What makes the Gore Face Warmer so special? It's made of polyester, one of mankind's greatest inventions. As anyone from the '70s can attest, that stuff gets hot. Gore's Windstopper technology is an added bonus. They laminate the polyester to keep the wind from cutting through to your skin. Also, you don't have to worry about things getting too stuffy. See those little holes on the left side of the product?
Those allow you to breath freely while you're huffing, puffing, and cycling down the street. One thing to keep in mind is your nose size. My nose is on the small side, so if I don't velcro the straps on the back just right, I'll experience some slippage. Another thing to keep in mind is that this mask makes you seem far more intimidating than you really are. No one can see your gorgeous smile under all that breathable, heat-concealing, black fabric.
