Under Armour balaclava

So I was gonna buy an Under Armour balaclava last week but couldn't find one. So I ended up getting an Under Armour face/neck shield instead. It's pretty similar to the balaclava except it doesn't cover the top of the head. One problem I noticed with it is it smashes my nose, so I end up having to pull it down just under the nose. This leaves only the tip of my nose exposed from the face mask, my goggles, and hat. It looks kinda funny. Anyway just wanting to see if anyone here has the balaclava, If so does it smash the nose at all? I wanna pick one up but not if its gonna be the same as the face shield one. Thanx

I too tried the Under Armour one and had the same problem with "nose smash". I have one that is Seirus brand. It's nice because it's not too thick on the head, so it doesn't change helmet size, but it is fleece thickness around the neck. I also like how it's loose around the neck and chin rather than tight like a true balaclava. Oh yeah and there's no nose smash.

Here's the link to the same one I have. Seirus Thick-N-Thin Headliner at REI.com

I think its better because it doesnt fog up as much and its easier to breathe through. It doesn't give me a nose bridge problem either
