Yeah I've heard a lot of good things about the UA Hood. I'm thinking about getting one for this season. But I'm pretty sure a facemask will provide better warmth than a bandana.
yeah the face mask is def. warmer. i like the bandanna when they have the blowers on (sucks), gives u a bit of cushion from things pelting you in the face. I hate stuff around my face so either is quick to pull up or down.
bandanas are good when it's sunny, but if it's stormy and windy, they don't stand a chance, freeze on you instantly, and basically leave you wishing you bought that neck warmer instead (or the UA hood which, yeah, it does look very nice).
Hey, does anyone know of any brands that make a hood like UA, but cheaper?
You can buy cheaper quality stuff from places like Dick's. Personally, I don't think $25 is too much. You get a really great piece of outerwear. You can skimp, but you will probably end up regretting not spending that extra $5.
Also, you're not going to find anything good for $10 or anything so you're only looking at saving a few bucks anyways. Dig deeper.
