Just looking for feedback on the different types? Airholes look good and comfy but I hate the airhole :/ I like the look of bandannas but do any of them stay up or do you spend all day tightening etc.?
Cheers
Rider qi, it has ear straps to keep it up.

Got this.



Really breathable and sooo warm. The top is really loose when I wear it over the nose though. Might have a small head, but it doesn't matter anyway because I where a hat. Gonna try it out on the slops on Friday. I'll let you all know.

So I bought an Airhole ninja mask, the kind that has a tie in the back, for my b/f. He hated it so I tried it. It is really thin, but it worked really well for creating a seal under the goggles without fogging (due to the hole I presume). However it got wet fast and froze solid.



So far my favorite mask is the one I got for free from Freesnowboarding (on etsy). I think I will copy it and make a few like that myself, it's the perfect size and really soft, I just don't like the colour.

Balaclavas are dead to me, just uncomfortable with a helmet.

Mine above was amazing. Soooo warm and breathable, the only problem was my goggles fogging. That was due to the goggles though. Would recommend it.

What is it? You only posted a pic.

I can't wear those my dreads stick to my neck. I could try creating a hole in the back I suppose. How big is it?

It's really roomy. Plus you can pull the hood back and wear it as a neck gaiter. It's this:

This seems... interesting? I actually would like to try it, but it sounds either too good to be true or overkill on most days.

Also, Darth Vader.

Sweet dude, you can wear it like a neck gator too, the hole is so big edit; missed that post.

I just hold up the mask with my googles....make sure to either hold your breath while strapping in, or take off the mask part and pull it up later so your goggles don't fog.
