Interesting. I have never really had any issue with the UA hood causing my goggles to fog up, provided that I keep the top of my jacket open a touch. If I zip my jacket *all* the way up, then the warm air from body temp only has one place to go; up, and directly into your goggles.
That said, yes, the UA hood is too short for "real" winter sports. It need to be longer. Also, the main reason I switched over to the UA hood from the Sirius (sp) face mask was because the UA had no mouth holes. Yeah, I know those are supposed to help with breathing and fog, but in reality they just made my lower face really cold, while the rest of my head was warm. I've never had much trouble breathing with the UA hood on the slopes, but I have certainly had that problem on my bike. I still bike around Boston during the winter, and rock the UA hood for that when it is really cold/windy outside (which is most of winter here). So yes, I can relate. And yes, I would like a better product, but the UA hood is the best one out there by far at the moment (and I've tried like almost everyt other option)
So, how noticable of a difference do the breathing holes make? I like that idea. I want air, but don't want cold. There has to be a way to cover both. As for making them longer, what about using like the lower half of another UA hood so you could get the same material?
