have been using a dakine face mask all of last year. this thing is the shit. only time it ever froze on me was on the coldest wettest day last year and only on the edges. the only down side was that it could of been more breathable. i went to my local shop two weeks ago to buy socks and i stop to look at a new mask. i was shocked when i saw that this years dakine mask had a meshpart around the mouth. same mask and everthing now they all mave a mesh like thing to breath. heres a pic of the old one and new one.

I saw the new ones on Dakine's website but it doesn't say anything about it.
So is that circular patch over the mouth area removable with the mesh behind it? If it isn't than I don't see how it would be more breathable.
Thanks for letting us know about that!.

Does anyone know of a gaiter-style facemask (goes all the way around the neck, no velcro) with breathing holes for the mouth? I have been looking for something like this for a while but no dice. I don't like full hoods because I can't pull down the mask and also get too hot, and velcro on the back of my neck drives me nuts. I have a burton gaiter that is fine, but on colder days if I want to cover my face it fogs my goggles like no other. I want some mesh or something dammit! Thanks guys, sorry Im picky

It's not a "bandana" but it'll keep your head warm and looks breathable...

I have this, I was wanting a "Balaclava or the "Airtube" but I knew I wasn't going to be able to order one so I forgot about...Until I saw an Airhole brand facemask on sale on Black Friday sale, even though It's a "Standard I" it still is pretty cool imo.

Here's a picture of someone wearing one.
