No way in hell would I wear a murda mask.

They look like a shitty airhole knock off

And those guys make snowboarders look bad. Take the thug shit elsewhere/away

After trying a lot of these (both versions of UA).

As cool as the newer UA is - it requires a neck balaclava.

The best solution I have found is a short sleeve athletic shirt made of the same stretch nylon material and tie it into a kick ass ninja mask/

It covers my ears, head, neck, nose (ie everything)

YouTube - How to make a Ninja Mask, THE kick ass way

It works well, custom fit, and works well with any shirt. As mentioned I use a nike or ua tight workout short sleeve shirt.

Finally I found something that kept my face warm, and didn't fog up my goggles and is really breathable

Ride QI's rock! It's not super super warm, but my face was toasty all day. I can breathe through it easily and it doesn't fog up my goggles.

I've tried bandanas, UA hood, and various other snowboard face masks and this is by far my fav.

I use an old patagonia ski mask... it's pretty damn thin and blue, but it keeps me pretty warm. I got a black fleece one, but it's a bit much for most weather...

I use some old Smith ski goggles, and other then when I had to climb my way out of powder I didn't have problems with fogging.

It's a time tested garment, but IMHO, technology has moved beyond it. The drawbacks I've seen with the old standby is that they do not manage moisture that well (from snow or sweat), they can be a little bulky compared to something like the UA hood, and last, they can be a little drafty an/or not manage wind as well as some of the more modern fabrics. Personally, I also don't like 3-hole masks. My teeth/lips get cold and windburned. Most of the modern version only come in the 1-hole version, which great for me. Will an old-school ski mask keep you warm? Of course. Are there better options? I think there is.
