  3. balaclavas
  4. scarfs
  5. tubes

What are the benefits and disadvantages to each? People have discussed fogging up googles from Balaclavas, tie-ups that freeze etc
My newest and most favorite item. When it's warm I just wear it under my helmet, it's so versatile, you can cover it in snow, take it in the lodge and after a beer its dry again (ok maybe not in the PNW, but here in CO hehe). I want to get like 4 more of these mofos. Merino just owns.

Merino keeps you cool when you are warm but a thin layer keeps you plenty warm when its cold. The only downside is the $$/durability, which is why I want 4, because the performance can not be matched.
