Recently, Gasmask Facemasks and I connected on Twitter. Once I checked out their website and saw their product, I was hooked. A mask that’s going to keep me warm in cold sub-zero weather, with cool, fun graphics on it; I would definitely rock one of these on the slopes!
Gasmask Facemasks is the brainchild of owners Joseph Shubat and Kyle Sartorelli of MIAD (Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design), who is also the artist. They have some exciting things in the works: Currently, Gasmasks is a proud official sponsor of Timberline Lodges Olymptricks rail jams at Mt. Hood in Oregon. For next year, Gasmasks will be sponsoring a rider on the U.S. Olympic Snowboard team for the 2010-2011 season, a friend of Joseph’s; they’ve been riding together since he was 11 years old! Look out for their logo on his board.
In the meantime, Gasmasks is giving you a chance to snag one of their facemasks. There’s three great designs to choose from: the GasMask!, Cid Vicious! (my personal fav) and Doobie!. Just leave a comment in answer to the contest question: What song or album is a MUST on your playlist when you hit the slopes (or just makes you want to jump around)?
Listen, I won’t judge you on your taste in music. I just thought it’d be interesting to share everyone’s music selections; you might end up with some new music on your playlist! The winner will be picked randomly from a draw.
Don’t get left in the cold, ladies and gents, enter now. Also, pass the word along to anyone who might be interested. Good luck!
**For those who don’t snowboard, it’ll keep you warm and toasty in the winter chill! Goggles not included
