Hardy Face Paint vs. Face Mask for Concealment


Chasing the waterfowl grand slam is a daunting task that requires a tremendous amount of time in the field.  Ducks and geese alike have stellar eyesight which makes concealment a top priority. Hunters often try a variety of camo patterns to evade detection; however facial coverage can be easily over looked. Face paint and facemasks are frequently used to achieve complete camouflage coverage, but which is better?  Over the years I have utilized both and found that a face mask doesn’t hold a candle to the versatility of face paint.

HARDY FACEPAINT

Hardy Facepaint is revolutionary, providing complete concealment whether you’re hunting a Louisiana marsh for mallards or the Atlantic coastline for eiders. Honestly this product gives you the ability to customize your pattern and color for every hunting situation involved with the slam. Why waste time fumbling around before shooting light trying to find a suitable face mask or greasy, pore filling paint? It’s simple, grab some Hardy, draw a cool design, conceal your face, shoot ducks and wipe off with ease.

Pros

  • No Grease, so it won’t clog pores or cause itching
  • Smudge - Proof
  • Sweat – Resistant
  • Extremely lightweight, it feels like nothing is on your skin.
  • Ridiculously easy to Remove
  • Beard and skin Friendly

Cons

  • There are virtually no down sides to using Hardy Face Paint

Facemask

Face masks also provide complete concealment as well as warmth in most environments; however wearing a mask suited for the swamp isn’t going to fair well next to rock outcroppings. The biggest benefit of a face mask is early season mosquito control, coupled with its simplicity, which are attractive attributes for hunters in swampy areas; however the use of early season masks can often times lead to game spotting you because, let’s face it, the mesh is see through and only covers so much. Hardy Face Paint completely covers your face leaving game animals clueless of your presence, which is crucial for harvesting that trophy you have been chasing for years.   

 Pros

  • Warmth
  • insect repellent
  • simplicity
  • Packable
  • Reusable

Cons

  • Scent Retention
  • Restricting
  • Fogs glasses, thus hindering sight
  • Bothersome if you don’t enjoy the feeling of something on your face.

Duck hunting is a time honored tradition that has been passed down from generation to generation. Many things have changed since the beginning of the sport, such as camo patterns and decoys; however we can all agree, whether you’ve hunted decades or one season, that concealment is the most crucial aspect for successful hunts. The choice is clear, Hardy Facepaint is the best option for versatile facial concealment.
