To prevent your face and ears from getting red and numb when temperatures drop, you may want to try a face mask that provides ear coverage. Depending on your preferences, it might just be more comfortable than wearing bulky earmuffs with a neck gaiter, which usually won’t cover the ears completely, if at all. Ahead, we rounded up some of the best options on the market. They’re all made of soft, moisture-resistant fleece to keep you warm and dry. Plus, they’re stretchy and easily adjustable thanks to Velcro closures, so you can breathe without feeling constricted.
