I bike to school and when that fall weather comes frost and the winter winds come a howlin' I make sure I take this article of clothing with me wherever I go. I still remember the first time I used it. I could not even feel the wind. You do have to get used to breathing through a smaller opening as it was a little tough for me to adjust. As I biked it got harder and harder to breathe, but now that I'm used to it I have no problems anymore. Again, for bikers in cold weather areas this would be a very beneficial buy for your commute.
