Well I carefully placed it over my head and i did hear a few stretching noises that scared me but no signs of tear. I used this while snowboarding and I did fall a few times but it never ended up wet. It is soft on skin and it's easy to bull up and stay up on your face. I did get the stripped one, it isn't the same color that you see on the screen it's not white and purple it's a pretty combination of color. I really loved the product. I think I want to get the gray one. They are worth the price. It also doesn't get too hot if you are snowboarding, I just pulled it down from my face and it was fine to wear. Never got sweaty on me. I do wish Roxy would post a model using wearing their products. Also more info on the fit.
