Breathable facemask that won't get wet/cold?

I snowed in some mild snowfall and light rain this past weekend and within 2-3 hours both of my bandanas were soaking wet from the snow and moisture from my breath. I'd like to invest in the best possible facemask that will be very breathable, water resistant, and will not get moist from my breathing. Thank you

a bunch of people say that an underarmor fask amsk is the best thing you can buy. i dont have one, but a lot of people think they are the best possible thing for snowboarding.

Agreed, those do look sick. I want one just for the looks lol.

Read my review of the UA Hood here:

http://www.snowboardingforum.com/out...thread-35.html

Aside from my large head issues, the UA Hood kept me completely dry. Free from sweat and snow. Plus it was drizzling rain the day I went out and still no wetness. I'm so tempted to poke nose holes in it though :/

Just scared it will ruin the hood. If I bunch up the material near my nose, I can breathe better so I am 99% positive smaller headed people will not have a breathing problem.

Its very breathable and you wont get moisture buildup from your breath. But its very thin and doesn't provide much warmth. But that doesn't seem to matter since your using a bandana anyways. I haven't had any troubles with it freezing yet but i haven't taken it through powder either. Definitely better than a bandana.

Not really. There are plenty of fleece lined bandanas that work great. I might pick up that Ride Qi to wear over my UA hood. That will probably solve my breathing problem. I can just pull the hood off my nose and use the Qi so I can at least get a little protection for my nose.
