I tried the full size last winter, but it felt crap under my helmet, so I returned it.
I'm definitely trying to find a good-priced Airhole mask now. The benefits would include being able to eat small snacks and talk on my mobile telecommunications device without having to remove the mask!

I like your orange laser eyes! (Camera affect)

Nice! I just picked up the new Dakine one yesterday on backcountry. Can't wait to try it out even more now. Thanks for the review man

tried regular cotton bandanas...now I know from experience how bad they suck (crunch, crunch)

Then tried a moisture wicking fleece air hole type face mask...still sucked. Had to keep messing with it to get it just right around my goggles, the breathing hole didn't seem big enough and/or it would move around away from my mouth, etc. I like looking cool on the mtn and everything, but this was really just form over function.

Last season, didn't wear anything. The moisture wicking fleece around the collar of my jacket's hood was enough to keep my face dry and warm enough during the heaviest storming conditions.

Looks like the breathable mesh on those doesn't go all the way through which is why I'm personally going with the 686 Strap, on which is does. This would make the 686 mask a lot more breathable than those, although those are also good facemasks. I'll give you a short review after using it for a day, that is, ifI finally get enough snow here to actually go boarding.

I have the 686, posted it a few pages ago. Very breathable, but it attaches via velcro...pretty annoying. Pick your battle lol

My old Serius one also had velcro. It was kind of annoying at first, but once I got used to the feel of where it was with my gloves on it wasn't really a problem.

Hey guys I know it's not technically "facemask" but between the Dakine Convertible Hood and the UA Coldgear hood, which would be the better choice? I like a hood where I can pull down the mouth bit if it gets too hot/irritating. Leaning slightly towards the UA hood but the Dakine is slightly cheaper. Thoughts?

Also my helmet fits pretty well. Would using either of these hoods make it uncomfortably tight?

If you want to be able to move down the mask, get the UA one. The mouth part moves down and the hood stays up.

On the Dakine one, the hood goes down and the mask stays up.


If you're wearing a helmet I don't think you'd really need a hood unless your ears get cold. Last season I tried the Serius version and it made my helmet so tight I couldn't even get it on properly, so I returned it.

Perhaps you could try a Buff facemasks instead. You can wear it as a facemask, or down around your neck. If you want, you could also wear it over your ears or entire head while also wearing it as a facemask. It's about $20 and made of the same or very similar material as the Under Armour one, yet you can wear it the same way and a load of other ways:



This is how you can wear one:



There are other ways, too.

They're also more compact if you want to take it off.
Here's a link to their page for the Men's Snowboarding-specific ones:

I don't actually have one, but they still look really good. I think it would be a much better option than the Dakine and UA balaclavas.

You could try one of these as a last resort!
