Thick Snowboarding and Ski Balaclava Facemask Neck Gaiter with 3D EX-BONE Air-Warming Chamber and Anti-Fog Technology
We take innovation seriously. We spent years developing and evolving the different iterations of our exoskeleton structure, the EX-BONE, that helps warm and humidify the air. This flexible, ergonomic invention prevents foggy goggles, allows you to speak freely, keeps you warm, and is the star of the Z9H snowboard and anti fog balaclava. But the mask itself also has a few daring innovations such as a zipper so you can control ventilation. It sports a full-coverage design that is thicker than Z5H to help tackle freezing temperatures.
Safe Winter Breathing
Because our lungs are made to process humid, warm air, the chill, dry air of winter can lead to wheezing, coughing, and that painful burning feeling. We designed the snowboard and ski balaclava Z9H to solve that problem – it humidifies and warms the air. Additionally, it protects your face, head, ears, and neck from the wind, helping keep your body, lungs, and breathing warm.
Half-Balaclava Neck Warmer
No matter how many times you slide your helmet on or off, this face shield anti fog half-balaclava made of mixed-weave fabric wraps snugly around your head and face without sliding down or covering your eyes. The shape and tailored mixed-weave fabric of the half-balaclava also maximize protection from extreme elements during winter outdoor sports such as skiing, snowboarding, hiking, and climbing. The fabric also contains cuttable ponytail slits for those of you who like your hair to flow free.
NAROO’s nylon blend fabric wicks moisture away from the skin and allows it to spread out and dry quickly, which keeps you warm and dry in freezing conditions.
3D Air-Warming Chamber and Zipper Valve
The key component of the Z9H is the ergonomically-designed EX-BONE, a lightweight, flexible exoskeleton-like structure that creates a 3D air-room. It prevents the fabric from touching your mouth and creating moisture buildup, but more importantly, it allows the air to become warm and humidified. And, if it gets too warm, the air intake zipper valve allows for immediate ventilation for comfortable breathing.
Anti-Fog Optimisation + EX-HALE Enhancement
One of the biggest problems with neck and face warmers is that they fog up goggles and lenses. The EX-BONE combined with the Z9H’s adjustable nose clip helps prevent fogging. For even more powerful anti-fogging capabilities, you can choose to add the specially designed EX-HALE module to the EX-BONE frame that helps direct warm and humid air down and away from your goggles.
Safe and Ergonomic
NAROO constantly strives to be sure that our masks are safe. The mask is made to be reusable, washable, and with an ergonomic design crafted with FDA-approved materials.
