 Switchback replies: This is because my pal Yogi is tough and smart and I  am not.  Actually, I find if something is completely over my nose, I do not  like it.  Too much carbon monoxide.  
 But this brings up a very good point.  What if you simply cut a  horizontal line about three inches long in the back of your balaclava.  Now  when you turn it around you have a nose hole for breathing easily.  Your  nose is still covered.  You could do the same for your eyes.  Hummmm,  why didn't I think of that before.  Of course, you could buy a balaclava  that has a face mask, but I find those too restricting.
 After looking at my face mask from BassPro Shops, mine is the same as in  the pictures at their website.  It weighs half an ounce, so I guess I will  keep it for the trail.  I like the flexibility using it.  Plus, it is  a great mask for Pirate attacks along the  trail.
