    I'll use a neck gaiter pulled up over my nose and mouth. There are fleece and wool versions available like this:

    Probably you aggravated an incipient condition. Cold air is essentially dry air. That is why hydration is an issue in cold weather. This is why any technique that builds a micro climate around your breathing will help keep you healthier.

    Lots of good ideas here. Balaclavas,masks,neck gators etc. Most all of that would be too much for me in the 30s, and I'm next door to you in (north) MS. So I'm not used to much either.

    Then there is the PeaPod. If I am down inside that, even with a vent opening of several inches, I find the air surrounding my face is going to be a lot warmer than out side. And the smaller the vent the greater the difference. I suppose then it is also more humid.

    It is down, so the worries you have about burying your head in your current down insulation still applies. Still, I have never had any problems with any apparent dampness or condensation, even fully close for a couple of hours at about 10F. Some others have also reported getting away with this, but YMMV.

    But all of this pod stuff is just for general discussion of how to solve this problem, as you already have your non-pod down set up. To a lessor degree, I get the same effect with a thick down hood I use, when cinched down enough to form a breathing vent. But, probably for me most of the time, it is my old neck gator from skiing days if not in the PeaPod.

    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    This is my second round. My first bought was on a work vessel where the temp was kept at like 40'ish something in the living quarters. I do NOT want this to happen a third time. Not fun.

    I am right there with you. My sinuses have gone to crap this past weekend, the temp dropped. We boys down here are used to some moisture in the air. I have an under armor balaclava and a buff. When its cold out I used one or both and it helps. I also can't stand a cold nose.
    Maybe a top cover or pod to create a micro climate inside?

    I use a balaclava which I have two a lighter weight one and a heavier fleece one and they do the trick for me, sometimes if it's real cold and dry I add a bandanna or another piece of fleece! It all basically traps the warm exhaled moisture so as you breath in the air is not as dry as it would be without it! JMO and YMMV though!

    Thats hilarious but I have to say the original thread title got a double take from me. Ever glance at a word initially and the constenent catches your attention first and makes the word something totally different?
