Regular readers of this page already know of my fondness for cold weather, for fishing in icy conditions or hunting when even a retriever dog would rather be inside the house. They also know of my preference for something known as PolarWrap warming face shields, headcovers and the more recent PolarWrap Warm Air Mask. Slip one of these beauties over your noggin, and at least that part of your body will be as toasty as if you stood in front of a fireplace.

I’ve used the Warm Air Mask during the most recent local cold blasts, and it performed flawlessly. Inside is a patented heat exchange module. As the user exhales, the air leaving the mouth is directed from the mouth port of the mask through the chambers of the module, which stores heat and water vapor from your exhaled breath. Now inhale and you’ll have the cold air traveling through the module’s chambers, picking up warmth and water vapor. Of course, the mask’s material alone that surrounds your neck, head and face would chase away the chills.

As a late Christmas gift, PolarWrap offers the brown Warm Air Mask, along with a set of Toasty Feet insoles (sizes 8-13 for men; 7-10 for women) and a carrying case. All of it costs $40 — a 40 percent savings.

There’s also a Youth Kit that features a new Exchanger Mask in camouflage that will fit children from 10 to 16, as well as women. The Toasty Feet insoles and carrying case come along with it. The cost: $55, which also reflects a 40 percent discount.

The only way to buy these items is to go to www.polarwrap.com or call 800/967-9727.
