About Us


As a group of passionate skiers and snowboarders based in Canmore, Alberta (north of the 45th parallel), we are no strangers to the cold...

We got fed up with foggy goggles and poorly-fitting, moist, frozen face masks—so we set out to reinvent the facemask and balaclava.

After several years of research and development, our team did it. North45 engineered the first ever overlapping 2 piece-design with a built-in magnet, making our facemask the only solution when it comes to keeping you warm, and your goggles fog-free. We launched our original magnetic facemask on Kickstarter in 2013, and we've been driven to share the gift of fog-free goggles with the world ever since. Nothing else compares.
