Day 3 Experence with ColdAvenger® Pro-
January 18th, 2009, Sunday. 20F. 8 to 12” of snow from new snow fall. 5 to 15mph winds. 4 mile trek through deep, wet snow at Oglebay Park and Resort. 10:15am – 11:30am EST.
Picture day! Boy Scout rule: Be prepared! I charged the camera battery and now I am fully prepared for today’s outing. I even have the sterno (because you never know!) Oh, and lest I forget my personal traveling companion, Yukon Cornelius.
It is definitely warmer today and more humid than the previous day. I am geared up in all the necessary gear minus the 300 weight polartec that was necessary on the day before. I wrapped up the ColdAvenger® and off we went a-trekking! My husband and I stopped and took a picture here and there and he even got a couple of action shots.
Once again, the ColdAvenger® performed beautifully. I will add that this morning I chose to use my inhaler because of the events of the previous day. Nevertheless, I never had to use it once on the trek. The ColdAvenger® really helped me though it was much warmer than the day before. Although it was 20F, when the wind picked up that temperature dropped a bit! I still had fogging issues with the mask. I am not sure how to deal with this safe from buying some CatCrap and putting it on my lenses to prevent fogging. Have you considered making masks with goggles attached? I know that with most outdoor winter activities, many wear goggles. Perhaps with the right design and proper ventilation placement, the attached goggles would be fog resistant. Just an idea. And, once again, I would love to help!
I am really amazed at this product and have noticed quite a difference in my performance outdoors while using it. It is a high quality product and I would definitely recommend it. In fact, I already have recommended ColdAvenger® to a gentleman I work with who has a granddaughter with asthma.
I would indeed like your permission to share this information with my doctor. Additionally, there is a man here who has a ski shop near the resort. I would love to recommend your product to him to possibly sell at his shop and would like to work with you on this. Thank you for allowing me to purchase your product at the professional discount. The ColdAvenger® is an important part of my outdoor gear and I would never venture outside without it! It is truly an incredible product and performs very well. Oh, did I mention how easy it is to care for? Just rinse and hang to dry! I highly recommend this product to all cold weather outdoor enthusiasts. I cannot wait to don the ColdAvenger® on Mt. Hood. I am certain it will not let me down in the frigid air at 1am on the mountain.
Till then – Cheers!
