I never have problems breathing in my UA hood, but I also never pull it up over my nose I always keep it right under my nose, works perfect, no nose smash, you can breathe and my nose never gets cold either. maybe try doing that.

This is what I do with my UA hood as well. For the most part, my goggles block most of the wind to my nose.

I'm thinking of using a Ride Qi over my UA Hood because my nose does still get cold at times.

I think the UA hood is better for people with smaller heads so it's not so tight. On me, the thing is super tight just like their compression gear. Nose smash!

I should have picked up that Burton Tech Facemask when they made it.

ha Mine fit perfectly untill when I washed it last week (which I do on a regular basis no problems and air dry it) but this time I forgot to take it out of the laundry before I threw everything into the dryer. now it fits like a robbers stocking mask, all sucking my face to the back of my head. Im going to try to stretch it out, if that doesnt work, I want to try those bandanas with the fleece on the inside. I know it wont compare but if its decent I might rock out with that.

I have one of those bandanas. They actually work decently. Fogging is still an issue with them though and the mouth area freezes up after a while. Nothing bad enough to make you not wear it though. Plus they're cheap.

I snagged a no-branded fleece-lined bandanna at Marshalls or TJMaxx around thanksgiving. It has velcro to fasten it. Works great, so far, and only $5.99

Haven't used it on a super-cold day so I usually just wear it to cover my neck area, so I can't speak to whether it fogs my goggles, but I never cover my nose with a facemask anyways, so I don't think this would be a problem.

Ditto on the UA hood breathing issue. I like that it fits well, unlike some of the velcro-strap cloth masks, but it does restrict my breathing to the point that it becomes an annoyance. I'm considering one of those NXTZ bandanas. I found a review on here somewhere so I may try it out.

I tie bandana's around my neck, and pull it up just under my nose.

If you put it over your nose, you get crazy nose smash, but seems to be good while only covering my mouf.

I know im stating the obvious, but have you thought about cutting a hole to breath out of on the UA Mask?

Your mothers/wives know how to sew...have them fix you up a fancy mouth hole...
