    Are you referring to the hat, or the face mask? I'll presume the face mask as it's rather....err...prevalent in the picture! I've never seen a cold weather mask like that one before. Although I have seen similar looking apparatus which were supposed to mimic high altitude for training purposes. For me, I grab a face mask, balaclava, wrap or what have you as soon as temps get toward freezing.

    I'm referring specifically to the hat. I would probably do a hat like that + 1/2 balaclava for a more custom fit since I have a large head

    Looks like a Pearl Izumi running hat. I'm bald. If you have a full head of hair, I'm sure the temperature threshold is quite different between us.

    Thats a toque. Toque & neck tube is the way to go for maximum versatility.

    Toque is what you put on your skull.

    If you search google images for "toque" vs "skull cap", "skull cap" returns closer matches

    That's the Canadian word for it. Skull cap or beanie is what I'm familiar with in the US.

    That might have been one Toque over the line (Sorry!).
