 One problem.  I had to choose to either expose my nose or fog my 
 sunglasses.  The turtle fur balaclava is a toasty thing but it channeled
 my breath vapor up to my glasses and they fogged.  The sun came on 
 strong by 11:00 and I had to use the sun glasses against the snow glare.
 So....I could keep my nose warm and hike blind or see well and freeze my 
 nose.    Any suggestions?		Kahley >>

This is a problem for anyone, like me, who wears glasses.  You don't even
need the balaclava to fog up.  When my body is warmer than the air, my
glasses fog up every time.  Can't see a darn thing without them, and am
unable to wear contacts.  I hate it but what's a person do to?
