i might have put some stupid advice about using t-shirt sleeves as face masks earlier...

i retract my previous statement... t-shirt sleeves freeze up too fast. They don't protect your face from the wind at all. You just end up with a nice thick layer of ice on the sleeve..

don't stinge and just get one of those moisture wicking bellaclavas (spelling?)
it'll be well worth it, those thigns won't freeze on you and you'll stay nice and toasty

i'v figgured out how to keep it up, but it only works if your wearing a helmet. so put your helmet on first then you slip the ends of your bandana through the triangle that your helmets straps make, then tie it at the back of your head and that way, no matter how hard you ride your bandana will always stay up

I don't think mine will freeze, its polyester polar fleece which wicks moisture very well. Its thick, which is nice, because it doesn't conform and stick to my face and mouth like a regular bandanna will

Am I the only one that doesn't get the whole UA craze? To me it is just overpriced polyester. I hate polyester with a passion. Im into wool or wool blends. I got a UA hoodie and pants for Xmas and I returned them ASAP. The tag said 97% polyester! My gramma wears polyester! What makes UA better than a regular polyester hoodie anyway?

a hoody is a hoody, either cotton or polyester. the tight-fitting UA products like the coldgear and warmgear long-john type stuff is their performance products. they aren't bulky, wick moisture, and keep you warm or cool respectively. UA is designed to help keep you comfortable without getting in the way.

Maybe your fairly safe, i used the fleece from a turtle fur neck warmer. Now I just stick with using an airhole face mask.
