"Just back after my first 20km in temp of 2 degree with this mask. Wet icy air about.
I bought this mask for one purpose: to restrict the cold air breathed in. I am disappointed by its performance. It is very low cut, more of the face is exposed to the wind than the mannequin pictures suggest. The nostril gap is big allowing a lot of cold air into the hooter. The mouth section contains about 60 2mm holes to let air and breathe pass. For me too much cold air was getting in compared to a gaiter or a scarf. It is probably fine in higher temperature conditions but for breezy wintry cycling I'll stick with the neck gaiter. One more point: it fastens at the back of the neck with Velcro. I would prefer an elasticated fastener. Easier when you are twisting and stretching the neck."
Pros: Attractive, probably best in warm weather
Cons: Expensive, neck gaiter is better for cold

Sport NTS Zip Tee Long Sleeve Base Layer
Our M's Midweight Midweight Zip T is made from the heaviest fabric we offer. Yet, it's still breathable. Offering a Zip T collar with a 10" zipper and flatlock seam construction to eliminate chafing.
"Expected a slighter heavier material to use for winter. I have a Large size (42-45 chest). Fit is very snug (my chest is 45). An XL might have been better. Haven't washed it yet, so fingers crossed. Good deep zip so it goes on and off easily. Pieces I have had in the past have shallow zips and can be pain to change out of."
Pros: Comfortable, Adjustable, deep zip
Cons: Expensive, Poor Fit, heavier would be better
