    +1 for the Buff. Buffs rock.

    The thin tube-type scarves that most of the bike mags seem to give away at this time of year work well, too. Or a Buff.

    buff/snood with fairy liquid on your glasses.

    breakfast sorted at the same time.

    Or you could try a snow mask

    I’m not the world’s biggest fan of Buffs, but that’s what I’d suggest also – spent a month or so going out with one over my face when I had a bad throat last winter and it worked really well.

    i like buffs but find they can get a bit wet when you are breathing hard and then that can get a bit cold if there is a bit of wind chill. they are ideal though for keeping a draft away from your neck or pulling up over the ears too.

    when it is properly cold i have a gore windstopper balaklava and that is really good. i think they also do a version that just covers the mouth and nose

    another vote for the Buff, my asthma is affected by cold air, and the buff has been good so far, if I don’t use the Buff then I have breathing issues 🙁

    Gore do a balaclava type thing with perforated holes where your mouth is and it covers most of your nose. Only downside is it looks a bit Hanibal Lector!

    There is that – I tend to rotate when it gets too damp (until the whole thing is wet and grotty 😡 )

    Buff again. Taken to carrying one in my pocket all the time now; went for a walk around Avebury this afternoon,
    and it was colder than I’d expected, so the Buff came out of the pocket.
    Bliss! Lovely and snug round my neck in the wind.

    Just breathe harder and deeper.
