I used a big ol' beard last year and it was too hot, rocking naked face this year its gonna feel so nice!

That buff may work nice. Looking for something thin to wear under my helmet.

I've used AirHole masks for the last several years and been happy with them. My profile pic has me wearing one.

I do really like the idea of the Buff posted earlier as most days I want the protection of a neck/face mask but find the AirHole mask to be too hot.

Yea when your waiting up on a summit and the wind and snow is howling it's nice to have full coverage...I like one I can tuck into my base layers and up into my helmet to keep me dry and toasty.

I grabbed this in the offseason...hopefully it works well. It's fleece on the sides and neck and goretex on the front panel.

I've worn it a bit around the house and it's definitely warm, and the mouth part didn't get wet breathing through it. Riding in the elements is different though, so we will see this season.

I wear a Buff. They're really breathable and keep you relatively warm. For REALLY cold days I'd get something else. They're thin enough so you can pull the buff up over the bridge of your nose and pull your goggles down over that so you're fully covered. You don't feel suffocated and your goggles won't fog up. Great for days when its snowing and you're getting facialed by flakes.

They're really dynamic too - I turn mine into a beanie when I job outside in the winter.

Cool colors/designs, cheap and super functional. Highly recommended.
This is what I bust too, I like it cuz its long enough to put around your head under your helmet if you want and theres no way for it to rotate uncomfortably. The only times it will freeze if its REALLY cold and snowing

how comfortable is it when wearing as a balaclava?
i feel like it would not be stretchy or wide enough and would press into your face rather firmly

Works perfectly honestly becuase its just stretchy enough to fit around your head and face without being too tight or loose. The material its made out of is BOMB, super soft, warm, and breathable. I usually put it around the back half of my head, pull it up to my nose, and then put my helmet on. Then im set for the day because I can pull down the part that covers my nose below my mouth to smoke/drink without the rest of the Buff moving. Then once i get off the lift just pull it back over the nose

I will mention tho mine was like $30 and i think said its made of wool or something? Make sure you get the soft one not the more plastic/bandana feeling one.

Heres some pics

Like I said I think mine was Merino wool or something soft like that but it definitely says Buff...It was closer to $30...i think the $20 ones are the rougher material which i havent used.

If you need me too ill dig it out of my gear to see what it says on it lol
