I always wear mine this time of year when the weather gets cooler. Those things work great. I wouldn't wear it in the summer time though.

I never thought about wearing it on the bike. I just wear mine when i ride the YFZ, great for keeping you warm and keeping sand out of your mouth/nose at the dunes.

I use one on cold days. I've got a few different ones. They're all for cold weather riding though.

If you're looking for something in hot weather...The only thing I can think to recommend is that Sparco makes a material called Cool Max© and it is used for Karting. They do make a balaclava out of that material that would probably work pretty well... :dunno :thumbup
