  • I've always wondered about this, thinking it might take some of the bite out of the wind and possibly even minimize ice cream headaches from winter duck dives...

    Saw this newly posted Chris Kelly video and noted that he's wearing one for a bunch of shots:



    Any thoughts?

    Where can I get myself one of those? That will definitely come in handy on some of those brutal days like we've been having lately.

  • I'd be concerned that it would absorb a lot of water, and be a freezing cold wet wad of cloth pressed up against your face...

    Additionally, you could probably make an uglier- but warmer- version by cutting the leg of an old wetsuit.

  • Used them snowboarding a couple of times...breathing feels restricted, and the inside gets wet from your breath...wouldn't use it surfing.  I guess it's a windbreaker at a minimum...
    it's 6AM, have you seen a donkey?

    Considering gravity pulls things downward. including urine, I would advise heavily against this.  ;D

  • Vaseline works very well.  I'm surprised more people don't use it.
