Since it's been ridiculously cold and a slew of storms is coming up, I'm reviving this thread. I'm in the market of getting a face mask for storms and cold. Something besides the usual neoprene mask everyone wears. I was looking into Airhole face masks. Anyone have any one can comment on how good/sh*tty they are? I need a mask that doesn't freeze up....

I have the COAL neck gaitors.  The MTF one keeps me warm and doesn't freeze up even when it's storming outside for me.

i cant remember what brand i got but i got mine at dick's and it is awesome especially if you wear a helmet. it is thiner material on top so it doesnt mess with wearing a helmet and its really thick and warm from the nose down to keep you very warm. they have quite a few there so just run by one or check online to see some.

Beard don't really work that well.  Mine just fills with ice and freezes me, so I need to find something good too.  But I usually struggle for air when breathing through a face cover.

freezes up? meaning you are breathing heavy into it and the moister from that freezes?

I am using a full neck and cheek warmer from Bula, Norwegian company. It also covers the nose and mouth, with a mouth hole on it.

Got the Coal FLT gator from here and it's AWESOME. Super comfy it's like wearing a beanie on your face. Never ever freezes up either.

Kinda, but more like when it snows and the material freezes. But I can see the moisture from breathing hard can play a part in freezing it.  Happens when I wear my wronggear facemask on a pow day.

I wear a beard beanie or a dickie that came with a winter hat that I got for christmas.  I have never had the need for anything more than either of those.

i use a bandanna, but sometimes they don't really stay in place.. might invest in a ninja mask soon... since its getting colder and colder.

I rock forum.

I found it best to wear a base layer that has basically an extra long turtle neck. aha

It is so warm and its long and it doesnt fall down. I hate bandanas and gators cause they are so loose and a nuisance!

get the xtra long turtle neck! aha cheep! i got it for 10 i think on this website.. its lime green and dope!!!!!

I bought an Analog hat from TruSnow and that didn't freeze up on me. Cotton doesn't freeze up nearly as fast as the bandanas do.
