ColdAvenger Expedition Balaclava: Redesigned based on feedback from the US Army Alaska for superior comfort and performance in the coldest temps Mother Nature can deliver. The modular two-piece system easily fits with other equipment while providing premium protection. The patented ventilator allows free breathing while comfortably warming and humidifying inhaled air. A hidden nose wire combined with a new internal suspension system allows for a customizable fit and improved comfort. The ColdAvenger Expedition Balaclava is easy to wear while providing the highest level of protection and warmth.
The Science: The ColdAvenger design and function is based on established science which documents the adverse effects of cold exposure on the face and airway, and the mitigation of those adverse effects. Our patented design offers multi-functional protection for cold operations and survival.
Independent testing within a cold chamber has shown the ColdAvenger will transform -72F air outside the ventilator to an average of 59F air inside the ventilator.
No Interior Valve: We've decided to abandon the green interior valve. The vast majority of our customers told us they do not use the valve and many had problems losing the part. We've passed this savings off to you. We left the post in the ventilator to accept the green interior valve in case there is a need, so let us know.
