    Default SCOTT AV3000 mask and balaclava

    Hi all, just a quick question on the proper donning procedure for placing the balaclava over the AV3000 mask. Because it has a bigger seal than the 2000's, is it sufficient to just cover the seal with the balaclava or should it be placed over the edge of the shield? I realize, bottom line that there should be no exposed skin but just curious if there is a specific procedure out there somewhere!

    This has come up here many times before as well. My rule of thumb is that if you can see your hood around the edges of the lense while it is donned, you will never have an issue with a gap. This is how I don my mask regardless of the model.

    Excellent answer and I could not agree more.
