Default Head and face wear with Negative Degrees? Under helmet

What can I wear that will fit under my helmet and will cover 90pct of my face and neck and head? Kind of like a balaclava? Th one I have is too thick and wont fit under my helmet.....any ideas?

I just normally wear a beanie/skull cap under my helmet for extra warmth. Goggles and a bandana cover the rest of my face. Kept me toasty warm the other day in -5 degree weather.

What has worked for me is the OR Sonic Balaclava


Thin (fit easily under my helmet), but windproof fleece balaclava with mesh area around your mouth to make breathing easier. The mesh is the best compromise I've found so far between making it easy to breathe, while not letting the air freeze your mouth/face area (better than the small airhole or multiple pinhole designs). Both my wife and I have one.

I wear a piece shaped like the piece above, but no nose cover. It's very thin. Get them at REI.

Under Armour makes a great Cold Gear hood for this. Much warmer with it than without. I use mine all the time, until the spring.

Icebreaker makes a really nice merino wool one. fits perfectly under my Bern, no exposed skin at all, no goggle fog as its thin, yet its extremely warm.

These are my favorite, they stretch so you can pull it under your chin.

Under Armour cold gear hood -

It's super thin, thinner than a normal cotton t-shirt. You can use it 3 or 4 different ways. Full face, beanie, neck warmer and a few other combinations. I picked one up at a dicks for $10
