Airhole Shark Mask Banner

Airholes come in a wide range of colours and novelty graphic designs but you are also spoiled for choice when it comes to fabrics. We have therefore put together this Absolute Guide to all of the fabrics and materials used in Airhole facemasks, balaclavas, Airtubes (snoods, chubes, neck tubes, gaiters or neck warmers) and hoods. Snowboard or ski, it is important to pick the fabric best suited to your needs.

Extreme

3 Layer

3 Layer is the most technical construction featuring a triple Layer bonded windproof fabric and 20K water repellency to keep you warm and dry.
