Go neoprene.

I had a silk balaclava ride up over my mouth and nose while stuck in a hole and cut off my air. No fun. I haven't used anything like that since, but you don't have my memories of the incident.

We are also a SCUBA Shop so check out Sharkskin and Lavacore. Sharkskin Chillproof is an aquatic specific, windproof 3-layer composite material that has been developed for water sports athletes.

Love the windproof aspect.
