Please refrain from using "face mask" and "revolutionary" in the same train of thought.

UA full hood is what I use, Tried the half mask neoprene mask and the thing kept falling down.

Call me a ninja but when you're riding -15 degree weather I'd rather be a warm ninja then fiddle fuckin around with a bandanna.

Like others the only problem i ran in to with the full hood is that it will fog up your goggles from time to time.

I wear it under a helmet. It's super thin.

I do have a small issue with breathing when it is raining. If it gets soaking wet, it can impair your breathing. But unless it's really wet, I have no problem.

yes I wear mine with a hat, and no I dont have any trouble breathing at all. the way I wear mine is over my mouth but under my nose(you can wear it over the nose but I prefer under). never fogs my goggles at all and the warmth of my face keeps my nose warm also even though its exposed it never gets cold., best snowboarding investment I ever made.
