Don't like my airhole all that much... it's a tie-up scarf type thing
You're talking about the style called "Tie-Ups" they have balaclavas and more styles.

Yeah, I know they have balaclavas too. I just don't like having the 'hole' in a specific place. I like to be able to pull up the face part to wherever suits how cold/shitty the conditions are. On chin if it's not bad, over mouth if its a little colder, over nose if its really cold/sleeting. I know you can do this with air hole masks, but i'll roll with my $15 plain black joint for now

Default Best neck balaclava

I've been using bandanas for quite sometime and they would get wet and freeze. Not very comfortable. I recently purchased this Neff balaclava which is 96% Polyester and 4% Spandex. Best thing I've ever purchased. Kept me warm and was way dryer than a bandana.

Default balaclavas, tie ups, standard, facemasks, snowboarding

So what do people prefer to wear to keep their heads warm? Us personally we wear Balaclavas, the light weight kind. there are a number of other types that most people have said about in here like:
  1. tie-ups
  2. facemasks
  3. balaclavas
  4. scarfs
  5. tubes

What are the benefits and disadvantages to each? People have discussed fogging up googles from Balaclavas, tie-ups that freeze etc

My newest and most favorite item. When it's warm I just wear it under my helmet, it's so versatile, you can cover it in snow, take it in the lodge and after a beer its dry again (ok maybe not in the PNW, but here in CO hehe). I want to get like 4 more of these mofos. Merino just owns.

Merino keeps you cool when you are warm but a thin layer keeps you plenty warm when its cold. The only downside is the $$/durability, which is why I want 4, because the performance can not be matched.
