I like the marino wool ones.
I believe its a mixture of neoprene (mostly) and the lower "double layer" is cotton I think, but I could be wrong. I don't have it infront of me right now but Im sure A* website describes the materials

I received mine about a week ago and have worn it 3 times already...all I can say is this thing is nice. Perfect!

Not feeling any helment pressure with it on and as long as you keep your nose out of the fabric it doesn't seem to fog the visor up. It's really warm and does a great job of keeping the wind off your neck.

Ormand, thanks for the review, it came at the perfect time when I was shopping for something to keep my noggin warm this winter. Thanks to you I found exactly what I was looking for.

Thanks!

I got one of those universal chin skirts from shoei that they have @ CG....blocks the wind pretty good b/c it's double mesh and allows my lid to breath....when it got really cold I put a peice of cloth over the holes in the mesh and blocks all the wind


I will admit it's not as cool as going full bank robber!

Anywhere...cyclegear, MH sponsors or Ebay. I bought mine from Ebay since i found a good deal ($32 no tax/shipped) and it's 1-size-fits-all so theres no concern about it fitting my big head.

I used mine today...boy was it cold but you wouldn't know wearing this balaclava Im going to ride tonight for dinner and itll probably be in the 40s and very windy but no worries. Very pleased with the product.
