    Wtf are you talking about?

    Science isn't political... it's science.

    Just because science backs an idea your politics doesn't agree with, doesn't make it political.

    I was looking at those online today but I wonder how easy it will be to pull down when you don't want it on.

    If the upper strap will fit around a helmet it could work but if it's under I see problems.

    Would be interested to hear how it works for you in practice.

    I think it might be good for folks to practice a little ahead of time with helmet, mask, goggles. (That doesn't apply to you young whippersnappers that wear neck gaiters even on beautiful warm spring days. You already know how to do it. And pull your goddamn pants up!!)

    I have one of those. They will not be able to be pulled down - once it's on, it's on. I don't use it at all, really - I go neck gaiter 90% of the time, plan old surgical mask the other. Without the filter inside it, it's pretty much the same as a gaiter anyway.

    Maybe a two layer gaiter with a filter inside?

    Any mask that you put over the helmet will probably loose on the sides and/or nose.

    I wonder if it will be a good mask vs helmet decision? Might just be easier to skip the helmet.

    Cool I didnít know the company was from Bend. Iíve been using this one since I was forced at Big Sky on a squeaky cold pow day.
    Now the whole fam and a few friends have been enjoying them on the hill. In the early days of the outbreak itís what I was using to enter grocery when hardly anyone was masking. Got many looks and a few comments.

    Comfortable and thick

    are you kidding me? Of course science can be politicized. I donít think Iíve met one Person, liberal or trumptard3d, that doesnít think this was politicized in one fashion or another.

    Science can indeed be politicized. See it all the time. A former colleague, who happens to be a crackerjack endocrinologist and behavioral scientist, attempted for years to obtain a grant to elucidate a certain pheromonal pathway strongly correlated with a sudden onset of aggression. He was repeatedly rejected, even though he had some strong biology. In one of his rejection letters, a reviewer wrote that some of his initial findings were "provocative". He shared that letter with me. As it turns out, there are lobbying groups as well as prominent activists that put considerable effort into steering federal funds away from science that they deem threatening. Gee, now who would be against studying the neuro-chemical basis of aggression? That's a real head scratcher.

    Also, both the Clinton and Obama Administrations sought to politicize the Centers for Disease Control- Syphilis is a racist disease! Why are bull dykes fat? Gun violence is a disease! Don't know if Regan or the Bushes got involved at that level, wouldn't surprise me, though.

    Bush banned federal funds for stem cell research. Reagan refused to deal with AIDS, I think it was Birx who got the corner turned on that. I don't recall the details. Regan treated her father very badly, to the point that he went mad. (I played Lear in the 6th grade. I was supposed to hold dead Cordelia in my arms but I refused to touch a girl, and anyway she was bigger than me.)

    Who needs a mask when you have an avalung?

    Since I don't have an avalung I'll have to improvise, but I will not pull up my pants, Gramps ; )

    Well letís make the distinction between Buffs and fleece neck gators (the latter of which are typically worn by skiers). ďThat studyĒ was clearly dealing with sheer neck gators, aka Buffs, even though they called them fleece neck gators. Wtf? I have to think my ~1/4 inch thick fleece gator provides way better filtration than my 1/32Ē thick buff.

    In any case Iím thinking area skiing is going to be a complete shitshow, on multiple levels (scoring an inbounds pow day will be possible once or maybe twice if youíre lucky). Seriously thinking of deferring all my pass money till next season.

    Yeah sonny, one day you're going to fall flat on your face and you'll wish you'd taken my advice.

    Most skiers and staff at Mt. Hood this summer were wearing single layer almost see through buffs. No super-spread event up there but there were some employee positive cases.

    Plus, the study you refer to was not meant to be a conclusive guide describing which masks to wear, but rather how to test their varied effectiveness. Results regarding the effectiveness of any particular face covering were merely a byproduct of the study.

    These are kinda the norm in Big Sky. Great for the cold temps we have often. Downside is that they collect moisture and freeze solid and then are really hard to breathe through. I actually cut a small hole in mine so it doesn't freeze so bad at the mouth. Will have to get a new one without the hole now I guess.

    When I wear my thin-as-fuck buffs in to stores and whatnot, my sunglasses fog up, I can feel the warm stank-breath on my face, and smell my nasty mouth just the same as the good old green surgical mask. It also gets kinda moist. There's no way it's not helping when just breathing or talking. A cough or a sneeze? Probably pretty useless but that's what elbows are for.

    I'll keep wearing the buff until someone decides to do some actual research - which considering we are 6 months in to this pandemic and this hasn't been done yet is pretty ridiculous.

    We can all do some research ourselves. Do the blow out the candle test with all your alternatives and with no face covering.
    Also, if your glasses or goggles are fogging it means your breath is coming out the top instead of through the mask--not good.
    I notice a lot more fogging breathing through my nose than through my mouth. Figures. When I was having PT after surgery they had me inhale through my nose, exhale through my mouth. I think it was to relax me. I might see if I can learn to do that when around people. People make me tense--pandemic or not.

    Or you can just wear the least covering you think you can get away with and not worry about whether it is actually keeping you or anyone else safer.
