I think that is like the one face mask I have not tired. Is there a direct opening by nose area (it looks like there is)? Every face mask I have tired that has some kind of holes for breathing ends up letting in too much cold air, IMHO. I had one of those serius ones for awhile, and the breathing holes just made my lips, cheeks, and loser nose super-cold and defeated the whole purpose of wearing a face mask. Hence, the UA ones rock the party. Anyway, whats the story on the Gorilla mask and breathing holes, etc?

The mask is 2 pieces. The main piece covers the head, neck and chin. If you velcro the main piece everything up to your bottom lip will be covered. There is a separate velcro piece that goes over your mouth and nose. It has a piece of material you can breathe out of over the mouth and the nose is open.

The best things about it are: superior warmth with minimal bulk and the fact you can easily unvelcro the nose part for any reason.

These are awesome, a friend has one and it makes me laugh every time he wears it.

Anyone seen these mesh bandanas from f2outerwear.com? I want to order one but it seems like no one has tried them.

Those are awesome! Myself, I do not ride if it's cold enough that I have to cover my face... normally -15 C or 5 degrees is my limit.

I have one of these. I don't wear it snowboarding because I like to wear a helmet. I use a helmet liner with a face mask on it. But, if I wasn't wearing a helmet I would wear this. I use it when I am ice fishing. I have gone 30mph across a lake in -10*F and I didn't feel a bit of cold air on my face using this Balaclava and a pair of goggles.

Airhole. New brand on the rise, they make bandanas with a little hole in them so you can still breath out of em.
