Built for Longest Days on the Hill

These are far and away the best facemasks for any winter activity. My whole family has their own and we use them all season long. On the coldest days, my daughter and I rarely have to stop to warm up. Basically zero goggle fog too. Just a great product that lasts through literally hundreds of washings through the last few years. We get about 50-60 days on the hill between the two of us and I am an instructor at a local mountain. We only wear and promote BlackStrap wherever we shred and intend to do so for life!

Good Product, Terrible Customer Service and Communication

I like how well the face mask part stays on, but is easy to take off when too warm. I paid for priority shipping to arrive within 2-5 business days, it took 3 weeks for it to arrive. When I reached out to discuss a shipping refund, I still have heard nothing back.

Excellent Product

I have purchased 4 of the expedition hoods for myself and my family over the last several years. I use it primarily when skiing, but they are also excellent for general outdoor use in cold or windy weather. The blackstrap expedition hood provides superior durability and versatility at a fair price.
