The Dakine Prowler

Not as funky smelling after a day of use as the UA hood I had and not as bulky as a fleece facemask I had last season. The Prowler is also very breathable. Only downside, if you have facial hair it will freeze to your beard on super cold days. I wore this in -20 weather in Jackson Hole and it helped tremendously.

Thanks for the heads up man , guess i will just use my merino wool buff few more seasons.

+1 . As Kling said, can't beat the buff. Bought a black one coupla seasons ago and have used it from where temps hover around 0 and wind chills in the minus teens, all the way up to the 40s (40+ days and counting). Shocked at how warm this fine wool keeps nose and face on 0 degree days... of course, it's not toasty warm, you feel cold with the wind in your face, but there's no freezing, frostbite or numbing of nose, lips or chin, no matter how cold it is; just wear it facemask or balaclava style. Also very gratified by how cool and breathable the thing is on warm spring days. Wasted some perfectly good money on a couple of neoprene/fleece masks because I thought it'd be nice to be toasty warm in the face on 0 deg days but they fogged up my gogs so bad I went back to my buff. Anybody up for some perfectly good, barely use Zangear facemasks ?

Probably one of the worst facemask advertisement pics ever; makes it look like a cardboard tube to put over your face. Didnt think much more of it, but then saw it at a shop on discount. It is NOTHING like that. Super soft pleather that moves/folds much like a regular face mask. Combined with a pair of black goggles and black helmet, i had a pretty badass look going if i do say so myself.

Its amazing how much a small hole in front of your mouth can do for breathability. Even hiking up a peak to an off-piste run, i didnt have any fogging issues, and i was panting like a dog by the top of the hill. Eventually took off the mask due to getting too hot - this mask would suit cold to supercold days

I picked up an Airblaster Balaclava and a Wrong Gear Tactical mask 2 seasons ago. Two of the best investments I have made in my soft gear quiver for sure.

Wolf bandanas from kittylovesmonster.com, paired with the jet black EG2s makes for one badass combo.
