    What do I need to keep my head warm....

    Open to any, and all, suggestions as to the best product to keep my head warm when the weather calls for it! I assume that it will be some sort of neoprene....

    Please include the key words for searching on eBay!

    Thanks....

    P.S. Please don't suggest Paris Hilton...already ruled that out (no way I would let the ankle bracelet scratch my ski)!

    I would recomend a bibbed hood, made from neopreane. Look for a scuba shop near you and they will size you and tell you about the best one for what you are planning on doing.

    Cool! Never thought of scuba...is fitted necessary? How about cost effective (limited budget...)?

    I knew that I would get great input here!

    Yes, fit is nessary, if it is too tight it will push on your artries and restrict blood flow and you could pass out. One the is too loose will not keep you warm. Also there is diffrent thickness and you can get it with ot with out the bibb. If you are going to use a wet suit I would recomend one with the bibb. Can't remember prices but I would think that a 3 mm hood would do just fine with a cost around $30 if my memory serves me right.

    Did you consider using a moto cross helmet? You get the best of both worlds with one of those, warmth and protection. I have seen some on ebay for around $30.

    Going to have to check this out...have NO idea just what a moto cross helmet even looks like! If it looks anything like the helmets the bicyclists wear around here....
