I was pretty excited about Buffs, but after real use, they're only good for mild weather conditions. They collect vapour well and freezes up quickly on very cold days. Even worse, they channel that vapour up to my goggles if my nose is under it. I had to go indoors and wipe down the inside of my goggles last weekend at -25C.
Need new options that won't leave my nose in the cold. Balaclavas or airholes might be next.
