This facemask is so multifunctional. I just got it an have used it for the cold days while riding at Park City, and it does the trick. It's pretty thin, but definitely blocks the wind and snow. Also, it's easy to put in your pocket with no bulk. Good for full face coverage, keeps ears warm, or just keepin it low around the neck for not such brutal cold days. It works really well as a headband too for running!
