Question Need A Balaclava

I am looking for a Balaclava not a Bandana or facemask. I mainly want a really breathable one that doesn't freeze and allows me to breath very heavily. But I don't want a big hole like Airhole face masks, I just want a plain Balaclava that breaths well and doesn't freeze or on with a really thin layer around the mouth. The two closest things I have now is this On Sale Red Ninja Clava Facemask Black - Mens 2011 Facemasks Bandanas Banditos Gators Clothing Accessories re8ninbk11 and this On Sale Volcom Shred Facemask Black - Mens 2012 Facemasks Bandanas Banditos Gators Clothing Accessories vo8shrbk12

Just help me out a little.

That was the other option too. I just don't know how breathable it is, and if it fogs your goggles up. Do you know either of those, cause if it doesn't fog and is breathable then I'm for sure getting that.

Go http://www.snowboardingforum.com/out...askthread.html there and search for it. Many people swear by it. I just bought these and they should be arriving here soon. Coal M.T.F. Gaiter from Dogfunk.com Airhole Colour Mask from Dogfunk.com

I know you didn't want an Airhole, but I thought they looked cool, I love green, so I bought one.

The best way to avoid fogging up your goggles is either to get a balaclava that doesn't go under your goggles, or to make sure that the balaclava has holes in the nose/mouth area for breathing.

The UA mask is good for warmer weather (~22F and above), but will freeze up on you and get stiff in colder weather. In my opinion, the stretchy neoprene balaclavas are best. They can get a bit warm, though.

That is my main concern, I just want something like the UA that is breathable and doesn't fog up. But I can't find any normal Balaclava with little wholes by the mouth. That would be ideal.
