Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Very well designed. I moved from an OR Ninja balaclava (which is great except for skiing for me - kept freezing, fogging goggles) to a buff (the UV super light summer kind), which wasn't quite enough insulation to finally grabbing this at Keystone kicking myself for paying resort pricing (not actual different than full price anywhere else surprisingly). What everyone raves about in the reviews reviews is ALL correct. I think the design of connection points for the face mask are definitely what makes this work so well in terms of versatility. Over nose, right below, only covering mouth or just under chin, it all works. While the area near my mouth was soaked, it didn't freeze which I'm pretty sure is because of how they layered only that section with a different kind of material. Very impressive. Plus it's made in the USA!
