My bandana keeps freezing...
hey guys so i usually ride with this plain old basic bandana when its cold enough to...but when i wanna take it away from my face and nose to catch a breath or whatever, it totally freezes up and i cant really put it back on my face cuz its so cold. then i come inside and its all gross and soaked in my breath moisture. i know part of the reason could be theres no fleece or anythin on it.
do your guys' bandanas/facemasks/neck gaiters freeze too??
if i get a fleece neck gaiter, is it gonna get soaked and freeze too??
any help is very appreciated!! thanks!

with functionality you lose style. There are face masks with a Velcro strap in the back that keep your face toasty warm but it's not as cool as a bandana. I use them when it gets really cold, other than that i have a insulated bandana with a velcro strap in the back which takes much more to freeze than a standard bandana.

Yea, my bandana freezes too...if it's an unbearably cold day, i'll go with a fleece neck warmer

Barney kook if you are looking for a bandana style, I used mine this past weekend as I do not like the face smoosh of the UA hood any more and it seemed to work fairly well without freezing

The latest cry in Europe is the Clast gear. Works great too. Style to boot and straight outta the heart of Switzerland, rider owned.

Who seriously wears bandana's?

Ganster's wear bandana's...but even they're smart enough not to tuck them into their clothes. The problem is you need to allow your breath to escape. Look at shaun whites bandana. It stops at the end of his chin. But his neck must still get fucking cold.

Wear something like a NXTZ ...and don't tuck it up under your goggle. Not only does it look gay but it'll prevent your breath from escaping. Not to mention you won't be able to pull it down when you feel like you're suffocating. It'll cause your goggles to fog occasionally as well. Just pull it up to the bottom of your goggle...this way only the tip of your nose will show and you can't even feel that getting cold. When you breath into it, your breath will keep your neck warm. I always see dumb ass kids wearing bandana's and I want to ask them how their slimy snot tastes inside there.

but yea thanks for the ideas guys i'll more than likely check them all out and see which one sounds best :D

I guess I'm an old timer I still wear bandanas and they have never really been an issue. If it freezes up just squish it around and then pull it back up.

I never have issues of snot, not sure where that came from.

For me it is function, I'm not the best but not the worst rider. Keeps my face warm and I'm a dad, so I try not to be to concerned with fashion but I can/do ride so hopefully the younger crowd see's me with my kids riding and accepts me for that.
