Re: “Winter Snap-Shots

I found that my warm breath (out the nose) created moisture that would then either glom up or even freeze (later in the season). The very best material I ever found is panty-hose material. It DEFINITELY keeps anything under it warm, and it's too thin to allow accumulation of moisture ... or other fluids (like mucus [sorry]). Since it's weird to ride around looking like a bandit, I only used it from 20° to -20°. You can either let your nose get smashed down or cut holes in the essentially ski mask. Either way, somehow the warmth around the nose keeps the air from being cold in the lungs.

Between these 40° temperatures and the 20's, I have found that face grease works. Bonne Bell makes one called Weather Proofer. Again, although it's illogical, the warmth around the nose keeps the air from being cold (maybe, it's the moisture). Vaseline is okay, although it's a little thin.

Congratulations on your dedication!
