Your mothers/wives know how to sew...have them fix you up a fancy mouth hole...
I gave this serious though actually. I just don't want to ruin it. And no, they don't know how to sew

Plus adding holes still doesn't alleviate the nose smashing problem.

Ouch, So what happened to your chin?

Nothing, it was just stage 1/level 1, whatever. Skin peeled but it looks ok now.

AirHole is the best solution i've seen for people who complain about not being able to breathe through balaclavas or other masks

I've never worn these things, just didn't find them comfortable plus the fogging issues. Got a DC Auli for free, so I'll have to try it out one of these days. It's basically the front triangle of a bandana with straps to tie it in the back, and made of some stretchy poly material.

Airhole suck royally. You can't wear anything up under the goggles without fogging.

All you need is a neck gaiter and keep it up over your lower cheeks, it will keep you warm.

I'm gunna throw one in here for buffs, I use mine as a bandanna in the summer for backcountry hiking and as a gaitor in the winter.
BUFF -The Original Multifunctional Headwear-
they are a little more expense though.

Turtle Fur makes a "tube" nack gator, super thin, breathable. Does get wet and freezes when breathing thru it. Similar to a Buff, but it's fleece.
