I got mine a couple days ago. Haven't had a chance to use it but it seems good. It is very light weight. Basicly two layers of mesh. Should be good on days when you don't need somehing but want something. The velcro is long enough to fit any head size. It has two little pieces of elastic that you can loop over your ears to hold it up. My only complaint would be that the velcro is too tall. It is 2" but would prefer 1" or 1.5". You can feel it push back when you look up and it interfers with my helmet a little. I'll put up some pictures tonight.

Got my Ride Qi... It's not bad, not great.

Any facemask should be washed before wearing.

I have to agree that the Velcro is too big in the back and is quite irritating.

Hmm. Had no problem with mine and I forgot to wash it before using it for 3 1/2 hours. Still a good idea though.

I'll call it good but not great. When I used it it was 25 dgrees falling to 20 and they were blowing snow the whole time. It was good at shedding moisture but it would be a little frozen at the end of a run if I went near the guns. If you have it under your google foam and your googles are tight it is thin enough that it doesn't provide a path for your breath to fog your lense. The size of it is good and the large velcro didn't bother me.

i usually use facemasks but they get wet just from me breathing. A friend got me the RideQi for xmas and i have 2 days on it. Doesn't block the wind when i'm going relaly fast as well as a standard facemask, but for me it gives me 0 gaps between jacket and goggles when my facemask does, so it evens out the wind blockage factor. It gets less wet and doesn't make as much contact with my face as a facemask or balaclava or ninja thing over your head so that's a plus. froze up a tiny little bit after a run but that was minimal and it got uncrispy after a little bit. i'd like to order some more because i don't like using facemasks or anything back to back days if i don't have a chance to wash them. also +1 for hotness.

The red one, I'm not sure the yellow would fit your outfit.
