Check with the helmet company, 2 of my lids came with a Wind blocker that clips on the the bottom of the helmet around your chin and neck, works fine for me, but I do notice the helmet dogs up very easy if you are not moving with the defroster open

I had this problem and solved it with a balaclava. It is cheap and you don't feel any cold air in your lungs, chin or neck. So you kill 3 birds with one stone. Also, you can put on in 2 secs and store in jacket pocket at all times with ease. Biggest thing I learned after first ride in it, was not to tuck it into your layers. I was riding and cold air was flowing into my back area and I got my lesson. Now I tuck it between jacket liner and jacket and from neck up is warm.
Main of point of your thread is what I'm worried about. How to keep air from flowing in through closed vents. Even though now the little stream of air hits the balaclava, I am still suffering from "cold-air-to-the-eyeball" syndrome (like this =) in the last few freezes. So I just cry all the way home.

Well, there's the problem, then. It won't cook or clean. It definitely won't talk back, but it also won't ever say no. You'll just have to help her out in the bath once in a while to keep her clean...

A bandana tied around our neck will actually be enough and it works w the whole biker image too. Plus it can be thrown into a pocket taking up little room.

Honestly position makes a big difference too; If you stretch out on the bike your arms will take alot of the grunt and very little will hit your midsection and neck.

I have this one for about two years and man it is really cool!

If you stop you will have to crack your visor open or it will fog up fast. But it's worth it.

Balaclava is such a funny word.

Anyway I got what redux has too. Works real good. I used it at the track when it was 45 and I had no complaints whatsoever. Its just the neck part of a turtleneck and its made of fleece.

Go to Sun & Ski and get a comfy neck gaitor (or Academy)

My neck gaitor velcroes to my hat but I just use the bottom part when on the bike - perfect air dam!
