Best material for your face?

What would you guys recommend to wear on your face as in a bandana or balaclava or something? I know cotton gets wet really easily so what should I look for? What do you guys use?

I couldn't be happier with my Rideqi.... At first I was a bit skeptical about it being warm enough, but it's proven to be fine. I'm sure some faces it wouldn't be warm enough for but what can you do.

It also looks cool which the UA hood does not.

i'm giving a nod to buff headgear.

i bought a ride qi. it fits well, the velcro is a little annoying, but unlike milo, it doesn't keep me warm enough. looks sick though.

regular bandana = freezing problems.

seirus facemasks: i dont have a seirus clava, but i got a facemask made out of some kind of fleece. keeps me warm enough, looks okay, but the saliva buildup can get messy. there's always a gigantic "O" shaped splotch where the mouth is after a while, and it's like white.

i bought a buff cyclone, which has the buff material at the top that covers your face, and the gaiter portion of it is fleece to keep your neck warm. it's my go-to piece. keeps me nice and warm, gets wet with saliva on cold days, but it dries really fast, and it doesnt smell after continuous use.

i love my life
