NAROO: The 10 Best Face Coverings for Running and Cycling Winter 2021-22

Facing the Winter Wonderland With Warm, Breathable, and Comfortable Sports Masks

As tempting as spending a chilly day in the warm embrace of our couch and tea mug may be, braving harsh conditions is a necessity for sports. Whether you’re working off those pumpkin pies and turkey leftovers, or maintaining your body as an athlete, winter is coming—and it spares no one. So how do you keep your face and airways warm, while running and cycling in the cold? Well, NAROO has got you, and your face, covered! If you’re looking for the best covers for skiers and snowboarders, head here.

Running Challenges

It’s a cold, hard fact that covering your airways keeps you breathing better through the wintery outdoors. As Michael Kennedy of the University of Alberta reminds us, high-intensity exercise (like running) in the winter can lead to irreparable damage to our lungs and airways. This is where wearing a face cover—and therefore NAROO’s mask range—comes in.

Cycling Through Choices

Cycling can almost be an extreme sport in winter. Scorching-cold winds, flying debris – good luck if you need to stop to take a call. As tempting as it is to give your training the cold shoulder, worry not; It takes a wide range of protective gear to tackle cold-weather biking, but NAROO’s winter masks work as well on a bike as they do on foot.

    For me as cyclist and runner the #6 – NAROO F5 Neck Gaiter would be my weapon of choice. Due to the fact that it would the most allround mask to use in my case and like the way the mask is secured arround the ears, so it can not be moved when i am sporting.

    X9 and z5h are the best even though z5h is not here.

    Both having anti-fog technology and keeps neck away from cold.

    Personally I found the X9 or even a Balaclava to be really good when I’m out riding in London. ensure no wind goes in those softs spots in your neck. For me the balaclava keeps my ears warm whilst protecting me as i can still comfortably wear my helmet.

    The Z5H is perfect for Nordic climate winter commuting on the bike! Also protects the face in a really comfy way while cross country skiing or running in chilly, snowy enviroments! My favourite go-to mask!
