UA hood. Wouldn't wear anything else. It can sometimes funnel warm breath into your goggles. But that's the only downside. Completely warm, never moves around so you don't have to keep adjusting it. You can wear it many different ways. Works with helmets. Waterproof. Worth way more than the $20 I paid.

well both of those can be worn as just a face mask, that's why the eye opening is large. If you want your head uncovered just pull the top part behind your head. or if it's too warm and you want your face uncovered yuo can pull the bottom portion below your chin. I do that all the time. Most runs I'll only have the full mask up as I'm going through a snow maker.

Not sure what a turtle is, hopefully someone else will weigh in for you.

I'd say they're both good against wind and snowmakers, but like I said if you wear goggle, there's a chance the air you exhale will raise up into your goggles if your goggles sit on the mask. Especially if those masks are cotton, which wont let air escape easily.

I couldn't wear a bandanna. Looks like a street thug or something. Only time I wore one was during a week-long mule ride in the Grand Canyon.

Unless you get something that wicks moisture, where you exhale will be iced up quick on a cold day.

I stand by my UA Hood suggestion. The one hood can be worn in four different positions -- Full hood, Open face hood, Face shield, and as a simple neck warmer. Extremely versatile, extremely warm, extremely breatheable, and most importantly it wicks moisture so you'll never ice up.

The bandanas are fine and all if you just want wind protection -- they ice up like crazy though.

Turtles do fine so long you get the right material, polyester not cotton. The cotton crap sticks to your skin even after you wash it, not good for a guy like me who has facial hair. The turtle keeps my neck and rest of my face up to the goggles warm. I usually don't cover my nose up since it feels stuffy and most of the time when I get off the lift and get moving you get warm when boarding and don't think of it so I don't cover my nose up using it that often.

The only time I use bandanas are on my head after I get off the slopes. UA does keep you warm as hell I will say that. Got the thermal ones for the legs last year, never wore jeans again under my snowboard pants. Going to get a sweater version this year and maybe the hood.

Another plug for the UA hood.
I've been riding for 20 years and have tried just about every version of face masks ever made. The worst, w/o a doubt is a bandanna. They freeze, move around, come untucked, and don't really work. They are basically just for goobers who are all down with the fashion tip.

IMHO, the UA hood is the best face mask I've come across. If you ain't down with being a ninja, then fine. Then you can just get this. I've never seen them in person before, but it looks to just a 1/2 version of their hood.
