We thought long and hard about how to describe the Giordana Windtex Hannibal Face Mask—and scared ourselves by thinking about the movie. Despite our fear, the Hannibal Face Mask keeps your face and ears covered and does a fantastic job of warming the air before it enters your lungs, thus making the ride home much more pleasant.
It works great in terms of breathing warm air through the mask. Your lungs are really protected from the direct cold air. It also protects the cheeks and goes down around the neck slightly which offers some protection there as well. It is attached via velcro so is adjustable. It doesn't really cover the ears but this is solved by wearing an ear band to solve that problem. One last comment, I did experience a slight problem in that when I breathed out through the masks it would tend to fog up my road glasses. This was very annoying. So I would suggest glasses that really have good vents to prevent fogging.
Made in Italy. Windtex. Odd, but really useful for those bloody cold days (and skiing).
No good. I wear glasses. I slapped it on, fits well, etc.. but when exhaling the air vented right up under my eyes and fogged my lenses. Useless.
