Everyone seems to be making face masks these days. It’s like it’s the hot new item that will suddenly make billions in profits. Here’s another review of another bandana from another face mask company.
True NinZa Bandana
Conditions/Location: 15-20 degrees, Breckenridge.
Comfort: The fleecey “Minky” inside fabric is uber comfy against the face. It has ear loops to keep up us since it is a bandana style mask. Bandana’s never stay up on me and these did help, but they got to be annoying after a couple hours of continuous wear.
Dry Time: Pretty damn good for being fuzzy on the inside. The outside is full polyester with “moisture management technology” and I didn’t have any issues with it getting wet from the snow. It never got above freezing and hasn’t since the last time I wore it, so it’s hard to say if it will get wet on a warmer day from the outside snow. Based on my experiences with these materials I doubt it will be an issue.
Warmth: Its warm. I was more than “just comfortable” during the cold days. However it does not cover much of anything on the back side of your neck. If the wind is blowing from behind on the chair you’re going to notice. I didn’t ever get too hot, but keep this one for colder days.
Breathability: Right at the mouth there is a large hole in the “minky” inside fabric. So for breathability right at the mouth you’re just dealing with the polyester outside fabric and it does well. I never got any breath clamminess. On top of that the “minky” fleece is sprayed with an anti-microbial solution and it seemed to do pretty well at combating mask stench.
Best for: Those that really like wearing bandanas but want something that sits a little more secure and don’t mind a bit of a “different” graphic on their face. Not my mask of choice though. When I wear a mask I want it comfortable, to stay put, and keep my neck and face covered. Bandana’s just don’t work for me.
