"My most pleasurable climb due to the increased humidity in mouth and nose, decrease in dry throat and being able to sleep almost the whole night." — Manny Pizarro, Mountaineer and Guide, after a successful summit of Carstensz Pyramid, his sixth of the Seven Summits
What other adventurers are saying
I tried using the Altimate mask 2 weeks prior to climbing Kilimanjaro to get used to the mask. Initially I hated it, I found it fairly comfortable but had a lot of difficulty exhaling with it on and could not fall asleep wearing it.
On the third day of the climb I had a fairly strong headache and could not get rid of it. I decided to try using the mask and it helped me not only get rid of the headache and control my breathing, but it also helped me fall asleep. For the rest of the climb I slept with the mask on and did not suffer from anymore symptoms of AMS.— Adrian Szwej, Kilimanjaro October 2018
The Altimate Mask definitely made a difference for me when tackling Mount Kilimanjaro this past month. I am a person who struggles with sleep issues to begin with, so I was really worried about how I would manage on the mountain. I slept well using the mask and felt rested in the mornings.
I didn’t suffer from altitude sickness like some of my fellow trekkers did, and I credit the Altimate Mask for definitely making a difference with this.— Tracey Jones, Camp Wendake Kilimanjaro Summit Team Member
The Altimate Mask was really easy for me to adjust to – it is lightweight, so packing it in my luggage was a breeze. It also felt very comfortable while I was wearing it and stayed on my face without giving me the sensation that I was struggling to catch my breath.— Camp Wendake Kilimanjaro Summit Team Member
The scarf used in the design was brilliant, and in fact I used the scarf during the day as the temperatures got colder and we needed to keep the wind and blowing sand out of our face.— Camp Wendake Kilimanjaro Summit Team Member
I am going to be doing more high altitude hiking over the next couple of months and I will be using the mask again.— Camp Wendake Kilimanjaro Summit Team Member
I initially struggled with the device as it felt foreign to me, but once I adjusted it was great. It actually helped to keep me warm at night as it captured my warm breath. I never realized it would be helpful in that way! Lol.— Camp Wendake Kilimanjaro Summit Team Member
The mask really helped at the higher altitudes. Not only did it regulate my breathing but it also captured the moisture of my breath, which helped with the mouth breathing that resulted from being congested. A real asset on the climb to the top!— Omer Vandevyvere, Camp Wendake Kilimanjaro Summit Team Member
