Whether it’s battling wind and precipitation or shielding your skin from glaring sun and snow reflection, a day on the mountain or in the backcountry presents enough elemental battles as it is. There’s no need to add a tangle with a wet facemask to the mix.

Since their inception in 2006, Airhole has taken up that fight for us, charging ahead ever since in creating facemasks, Airtubes, insulated hoods, hats and more designed to keep heads and faces covered and comfortable in any weather or terrain. Take a peek at what they have in store for winter ’20/’21.

This insulated Airhood is packed with 100% duck down insulation and finished with DWR (durable water repellent), a design built with ultra-dry comfort and superior warmth in mind. The reflective coating adds a luminous color when flashed with light for high visibility.
