World’s Best Cold Weather Face Mask: A Talk with Cold Avenger® CMO, Phil Stempin

ColdAvenger® is an American product line––designed by and American doctor––developed and manufactured in the USA! This unique cold weather face mask is designed and engineered to stand up to freezing temperatures and protect the face from the effects of exposure. Whether for work or play outdoors, the winter face mask, with its patented ventilator and wind-resistant fleece body, is the industry’s unique half-face mask and balaclava mask on the market. You can protect yourself from the pain and long-lasting effects of frostbite and exposure.

Through function-inspired design, Cold Avenger® breaks free from the normal ski mask by offering not only a better face mask, but a product that will improve your outdoor cold weather experience. Wear a ColdAvenger®. Be warm. Breathe free. Stay out longer.

At ColdAvenger®, their products are built on the belief that a cold-weather face mask should do more than just cover your face. The staff and employees at ColdAvenger® absolutely love being outdoors in the beautiful state of Montana. From summer to winter, they spend as much time as they can outside. It’s often easy to blame the cold weather and winter elements on not going out for a morning run or hitting the slopes to ski the fresh powder. When they don’t have the proper gear, staying out for long periods of time can be brutal. Cold weather facemasks are one thing that a lot of people don’t consider as a crucial part of their outdoor winter gear, but it can be way more important in helping you stay outside for longer periods of time than you think!


Incorporated into every ColdAvenger® facemask and balaclava is the patented ventilator that allows 100% natural free breathing while passively warming and humidifying incoming air. The ColdAvenger® ventilator also prevents the fogging of goggles and removes excess moisture away from the facial skin.

Face masks are commonly overlooked as an essential piece of cold weather gear. No matter how warm and protected the rest of your body may be, if your face is exposed and you are breathing cold air, your body must work harder to stay warm. The ColdAvenger® ventilator warms and humidifies incoming air so your body will maintain core temperatures more efficiently and stay warm in cold temperatures. It also allows free breathing, prevents the fogging of goggles, and removes moisture so you can breathe, maintain clear sight, and stay comfortable in cold temperatures.

James Talmage Stevens (aka Doctor Prepper™) began his career in the preparedness industry from the days of his youth. His family lived with his Grandparents immediately following the end of WWII. He learned the basics on the Pace farm in rural Guilford County (NC). Farm chores and gardening were standard fare––plowing the back 40 behind a stubborn mule was substandard! In 1974, upon finishing graduate school with 4 young children and no prospects for a job due to economic conditions during a national economic slump, James reverted to his past experiences on the farm and chronicled in his notebook, along with some hand-me-down recipes from his mother and grandmother. Noting there were no viable books that dealt with all the basics, i.e.: a broad range of food products, he began to utilize his analytical skills, organizing handwritten notes, recipes, and food lore into one volume of information. He spent his spare time while job-hunting, and Making the Best of Basics was created. Before going to press, the subtitle Family Preparedness Handbook was added to distinguish Basics… from the emergency preparedness genre of the existing Civil Defense and governmental agency information.
