Hahaha cheers for the quick reply. Basically I wanted the UA hood cause it looks simple and fuss-free. Basically you put it on and it stays there.

I'm currently using an airhole facemask and it works for the first hour or so then starts to slip or freeze up. Obviously it doesn't give much neck warming as well.

The Buff one looks good but I'm afraid it's much too similar to an airhole in that if it slips out from under your helmet at the back or in front under the strap, then you will have to remove your helmet and reset it.

I want something where you can pull down the face bit when riding lifts then just easily slide it back up once riding. The helmet tightness that you've described does worry me a little though but I suppose I will have to try it to find out? The fabric does look rather thin so I'm hoping it won't make too much of a difference to my helmet fit

Then go with the UA one. The one I tried had an entire skull cap on top, which was pretty thick. The UA balaclava is just the same thin material on top, and you can pull the face down on it. You can't do that with the Dakine one. The UA one also has a load of great reviews.

This is a tasty burger.

This has probably been asked before but anyone have a good recommendation for a facemask that wicks moisture really well?

I don't mind if it gets wet during a run, but I want it to be mostly dry by the time I've waited in line and ridden the lift.

It also has to be easy to take off and put back on. I liked the UA hood the people above me were talking about since you can very easily pull down the mask and pull it back up but I don't think I'm quite in the need for a full hood.

Oh yeah and has to be available in Canada somehow.

I've been wearing a Spacecraft facemask this season, and love it! Keeps me warm when the wind is blasting, doesn't get wet on the inside, breathes really well, and looks good (to me)! If you're looking for a new bandanda style facemask you should check them out.

so far ive bought an airhole facemask, a spacecraft facemask, one that ties that's fleece lined, a thick fleece lined dakine one, etc. and im unhappy with all of them...either they dont cover your face well, or they're almost impossible to breathe through, or they let cold air in anyway.. the best ive found so far is the neff neck gaiter thing that is made out of the same material as their hats.. at least its warm and you can breathe through it, but it does get wet and start to suck too... im debating getting that UA hooded one

Just ordered a couple Yowies last week. Really happy with them. When it's not that cold (like 10-20F) I just wear the Yowie. When it's super cold like it was here last week (-15F) it works great with UA Cold Gear hood and Yowie over the top.

I can't seem to find one that is waterproof. They all say "moisture wicking" but the snow was coming down real good on Monday and I feel if it's like that again a lot of the ones I've looked at would just get soaked.

Today I bought a Bula neoprene balaclava/helmet liner but I don't know what's the best to get.
