Under Armour Cold Gear Hood with ArmourBlock | IK-922460 Review:
I hate wind. Unfortunately I live in western Minnesota -- the Midwest. Most days the wind blows 10 - 20 mph, but often it is 20 - 30 mph. For Fall hunting, a cold, windy day can put a damper on a fun day in the field.
I have tried many different face masks with varied success. My favorite is the Under Armour Cold Gear Hood. It is thinner than many other face masks I have, but it keeps the wind out better! I am surprised at how warm my head stays.
Another feature I like is the design of how the face mask comes over my chin/mouth/nose. I can wear the face mask with the front tucked under my chin and it is comfortable. It is easy to pull up over your nose even with heavy gloves on.
I have worn other face masks that were comfortable one way or the other, but not both. Either they seem to be too tight under your chin -- annoying, or the are too loose over your nose -- also annoying.
It folds down to almost nothing, so you can place it in the smallest of pockets if not using.
The design of this face mask is a definite plus!
I highly recommend this item for those cold, blustery days in the field!
