LOL, it's a balaclava, I just picked one up recently. Works great in cold weather.

Check ebay for some great prices. make sure you get the flat seam ones. So there's no pressure on your head.

Heated grips or gloves. Hands are the most important thing, everything else is secondary.


I believe i can see the future;
because everyday i repeat the
same routine.
