Abstract
A mask to be worn in high wind chill areas should serve as a face mask and provide respiratory protection to an individual in full Arctic dress. An effective design depends upon filtered intake to prevent entry of frost, exhaled breath not reaching the eyepieces, and use of low thermal capacity materials which have a high impact resistance at low temperatures. Consideration should be given to double walled protection, anti-glare shields against snow blindness, a speech transmitter, a detachable canister and the possibility of a frozen exit port on the exhalation system.
