    I switch between a headband, skullcap and balaclava. Not sure of the temperature threshold for each selection, but I'm never cold (I do overheat). I don't like to get the brain cold as it tends to get light-headed (I prefer to be heavy-headed).

    Your skullcap, plus a balaclava and some earmuffs wedged under the plastic side flaps of you helmet (I'm sure there's a name for these things. . .), and I bet your ears stay cozy.

    I found last winter most balaclavas freeze up or fog up glasses. I found at a winter trekking store this thing with soft fleece at the back but some kind of fleece over a hard (plastic?) insert at the front. It was designed to keep wind off your mouth but allow breathing down/sideward without freezing up of any small holes.

    I've just used a great cap I got at Target and a bandanna, I finally just bought a real nice balaclava.

    Then I got it home and tried it with my helmet, now here is dumb question...what's the best way to buckle the helmet and not take away from the effectiveness of the balaclava??
    I just need enough to tide me over until I need more.

    Get a larger helmet.

    I've got my summer helmet which fits quite snuggly with nothing underneath, and my winter helmet which fits too loosely to wear with nothing underneath. It works well with headbands, balaclavas, etc.
