Probably like this grey one Coal Basic Beanie Men's Reviews & Sale | trusnow.com
Anyways just trying to see what people on this forum usually wear.

keep in mind that after riding all day in cold temps, you need to find a mask with good ventilation otherwise it will get wet from you breathing thru it all day and any snow that gets on ur mask will stick to it. I have the seirus facemask/balaclava one..its not bad but it sometimes gets wet but it doesnt really affect me.


Im debating on getting this one:

Alpinestars Touring Winter Balaclava - Dirt Bike Motocross - Motorcycle Superstore

bandannas are worthless for face masks if its under 25, your anywhere with loose snow, you fall, or if its actually snowing. They never stay tight, they are pretty thin, and the second you take it off it gets cold and freezes in the the crumpled up shape its in around your neck. I have a fleece neck warmer that i pull up to my nose. super warm, then if its a warm day or im riding hard and im getting super hot ill just pull it down for a bit.

1 week for well groomed modern-style look

2 months for full homeless/grizly/timber/hipster man look

It would be really cool if someone could find a truly breathable one. The best one I can find is this On Sale Volcom Shred Facemask Black - Mens 2012 Facemasks Bandanas Banditos Gators Clothing Accessories vo8shrbk12 Nothing against the airhole but I don't like that hole, it's distracting and seems really cold. The only other good one I found was this On Sale Red Ninja Clava Facemask Black - Mens 2011 Facemasks Bandanas Banditos Gators Clothing Accessories re8ninbk11 but I feel like by having your breath blow up towards your goggles on the outside it would just fog on the outside of the goggles.

Turtle fur gator most of the time. Very versatile. Were it up at different heights on face. Even wear it as a hat from locker to the car. Thicker than I would like on some days. Lacks the Cool/hip factor. I've tried beard. Wife doesn't like it.

My jacket has a sort of neck cuff going on, so I can hide most of my face behind it. I usually just man up and suffer, the only time the cold and wind is really a problem tends to be on the chairlift. Soon as I get off I'm too busy shredding to worry about my face.
