Haha, glad you've got a sense of humour!

I got a nice balaclava from MEC, but have def seen some good ones at generic outdoor/hunting places and like legallyillegal said workwear joints about the place.

Shouldn't be too hard to find

snowboard face masks, balaclava

There are a number of great balaclavas now on the market that are light weight and breathable. The two we are aware of are by Airhole and Bula

Neff's "fuzzy" face mask has worked well for me on the occassions I've needed it in Utah. Warm and actually has 3 small holes. Sounds to me like you're more interested in a neoprene balaclava, but in my experience a helmet/beanie and a mask are the way to go. More versatile and easier to mix and match for the weather conditions.

Just replaced my worn out MEC 'clava with a Bula helmet jobbie... will see how it holds up.

Don't like my airhole all that much... it's a tie-up scarf type thing

I have a Black Strap Balaclava. I don't wear my other facemasks anymore cause this one is the best. It looks like a ninja mask, it stays in one place, it's breathable, and it's in a color I like.

Yea I just use airholes. They suck with a helmet though so I just use a balaclava and don't cover my nose. The Volcom face thing is pretty good.

In my experience anything that gets tucked under the goggles will cause them to fog up as soon as you breath out your mouth. Breathing out of your nose is all good in theory, but sometimes it just isint possible.

I'm rocking the UA ninja mask 2.0, doesn't fog my goggles even while under them (although, my goggles are fucking awesome, so many it would fog my electrics or smiths). It keeps me warm in super low temps, hasn't frozen at all unlike the 1.0, which even still, rarely froze. I'm a big fan. My only complaint is it should be a few inches longer.. but my jacket does perfectly fine protecting what it doesn't.
