Most face masks on the market sit directly over your nose & mouth, trapping humidity. Our 2-layer design allows hot air to travel away from your face, while the cold air in the environment prevents hot air from rising and staying trapped in your goggles.

You can read more about how our product works on this blog post: How To Keep Your Goggles Fog Free.

To help you decide which North45 anti-fog balaclava or face mask is best suited to your activities, we wrote this small guide: Which North45 anti-fog face mask is right for me?

Our masks & balaclavas are designed to be compatible with all helmets, goggles and eyewear. Our magnetic masks & balaclavas will work on all brands of goggles, providing that the magnet is adhered to the goggles as per the instructions.

Our products are not designed to be directly compatible with other brands' magnet attachment systems.

If your magnetic balaclava or face mask is placed in the washing machine, this can cause the integrated magnet attachment to tear from the fabric due to the rigorous movement of the washing machine as well as the magnet becoming stuck on the internal drum. We recommend hand washing your magnetic North45 products with a mild, natural detergent and laying them flat to dry.

Did your magnet rip out of your mask during use or without being placed in the washing machine? Please email us at to arrange a replacement.

As our product contains a magnet, please remember to keep your avalanche beacon 20cm away when in transceive mode, and 50cm away when in search mode.

Our Anti-Fog SureFit Balaclava may be machine-washed on a delicate cycle.
