Best mask so far is one I got off etsy so making your own (I assume you have a sewing machine) with soft fleece and a hole is probably a better bet, then you can size it how you like it.

Edit: Here is the one I have

Yeah, I was thinking about combining layers like you do with the upper/lower body. One layer on the outside for weatherproofing (raincoat like material), then a layer of fleece and a layer of wool, along with a wicking layer for moisture closer to the skin. I'm going to attach a strap system from a cycling road helmet to get it to fit as snug as possible. This way if my sizing is off, I can simply cinch the clasp. I was going to sew in a ventilation piece from a dust mask for breathing and maybe attach a flap so that if it's really cold I can minimize cold air coming in. All this material is from winter products kicking around my place.

Lol, I'll post a picture once completed. Hope it turns out as good as I'm theorizing it will :P
