It depends on what you want your face cover to do and the conditions you are in the most time. I usually ride with a Seirus ultraclava. It does a decent job of keeping my face warm and the wind from burning my skin, but the little nose hook is impossible to keep in place for more than a couple of runs. It also retains some moisture. Not enough to freeze up, but it is usually damp on the inside when I take it off for lunch or the end of the day. Dries fast, though. Mine is stretchy, so it has a slight compression fit.

I also have a fleece balaclava. Not as windproof and doesn't fit very well (one size fits all). Doesn't retain as much moisture, but there aren't any nose or mouth holes in it, so it sucks to have to breathe through it when breathing heavily.

I've never tried a bandana, but i don't see how it would work very well for multiple entire days out unless you washed it every night

I have one of the buff things. They work great to keep out wind but don't become moist.
