This face mask / bandana option. I'm interested.

Everyone saying they can't breath when they are wet. Is there any without a funny mouth piece that can be used?

bjw, this is how many people ride at my beach. It's the USD 2 lycra bandana (sold at supermarkets as a cyclist bandana) with eyes, nose and mouth cut out with a pair of scissors.

Now that you mention it, with some of the shenanigans that I've seen kiting at our beach, it's hard to tell the difference
