Let us know how that goes, please? Pulling the mask over your nose I mean.
I just got my Phunkshun stuff yesterday (shipping mess-up, so I went the Amazon route). It looks and feels awesome, and I was thinking I would pull it up over my nose as well, since one of the things I want to use it for is sun protection.
I can't go up until two weeks for now (I'm going to die!), so no in-use experience as of yet.

Next thing I need to try is putting the mask on my nose and under the goggles like all these olympic dudes do, although still I am extremely afraid of fogging because as soon as it happens once it never ends X_X

|kaborkian||So should I order the SL or DL phunkshun? Not a fan of the baclava style, head stays warm without the extra layer under the helmet.|

I just buy the cheap wal-mart neck warmer things you can pull up. My googles never fog up.
I guess I run a little cooler
I very rarely wear face masks though, it has to be like -15F before I consider it. I hate them.

Glad to hear you like it. I really want to try them but that's probably not gonna happen. I can get an SL on their website for $16 or something like that but then it's $32 to ship a little piece of fabric to me in Canada. Kind of ridiculous

One word, Swag.
Got my Phunkshun wear SL the other day and got to try it out at Creek on Friday. I believe it was like 15 degrees or something, and I was absolutely loving it (my face anyway). Only problem I kept having, which I said earlier in the thread is my little nose would get cold on the lift, although the wind wouldn't penetrate the SL to hit my face, just my exposed nose.
All in all, I love this thing, and the only way I can see it keeping my nose truly out of harms way is if I were to seal the goggles over the mask, except I would worry about my exhaust shooting into my goggles?
Does anyone know if this is true or not, or how to protect the nose without putting the mask under goggles?

To your opinion though, I keep the mask out from under the goggles as well. Do you have any magic though, GYPSY, on how to prevent your nose from falling off in the occurance of sub zero temps? Tell me your secrets, gypsy.

I've tried 3 or 4 masks and always had fogging problems until I tried this one:
UA ColdGear® Hood | 1223223 | Under Armour US
Make sure the goggles seal against skin only, not over your mask in any way.
