Hey, anyone seen A Man Apart, that Vin Deisel movie? Where can I find the mask he wears over his nose and mouth, it looks like some kind of balaclava or something.

Probably not that exact one. But, it's probably just a neck gaiter. You can get them in the hunting department at wal mart, et al.

This one was more contured and fit over the nose perfectly.

I have not seen the movie, but look at this http://www.4huntingdepot.com/face-masks.asp

One thing you need to remember is that is that face masks, balaclavas, neck gators and suchm, are very, very warm. I would not consider this a good “tactical” option for the summer. If you are looking for a “concealment” mask, you should look into the face nettings. Several members of F.O.G use these as they provide coloring and concealment, and also will breath during the warmer days.

Spandoflage. $8. Army Surplus store.
it does breathe very well, but it gets caught on twigs every once in awhile. It DOES help with camo though.

The costume designer probably had a custom face gator designed to fit Vin Diesel.

Somebody in the Prop Dept of that movie thought it would look cool for him to wear.

ALL of them are for cold weather. If you sweat in that thing you'll have to wash it after every skirmish. (Nasty, nasty if you didn't.)

And, they aren't really made for repeated washings like that. Especially if you use it alot.

I think for his they might have even used a neoprene one. (Wet suit material. Super hot depending on thickness.)
