Has anyone tried the Burton lightweight facemask? It seems like it has some nice features like the elastic loops that go over your ears similar to the Ride Qi. It also has a flap that opens up right underneath the chin which may help with breathing and moisture.

For $27 it isn't cheap, but still not as pricey as some of the other options mentioned in this thread.

I was pretty excited about Buffs, but after real use, they're only good for mild weather conditions. They collect vapour well and freezes up quickly on very cold days. Even worse, they channel that vapour up to my goggles if my nose is under it. I had to go indoors and wipe down the inside of my goggles last weekend at -25C.

Need new options that won't leave my nose in the cold. Balaclavas or airholes might be next.

does anyone have a recommendation for a facemask that fits well under a helmet? i have a airhole but it kind of messes with the fit under my helmet because its supposed to cover your ears as well.

any ideas?

Read all 58 pages and ended up buying the buff and the UA cold gear hood and they both get wet around the mouth area when I breathe after an hour or two. Does anyone have any recommendations on which mask I could get that has a solution for that hopefully? Thought about air hole but saw some discouraging reviews on here.

Thanks for the advice

Don't be discouraged.. I have 3 Airhole asks and all 3 of them have served me good. Much better than a regular bandanna, but the best mask I've had so far was the Bula Neoprene face mask.
