cold weather hood

Anyone got any recomendation on a good cold weather hood? I am looking for one that is thin up top but heavily insulated on the neck. I need something to keep me warm when riding down to the upper 20s this winter.
I have been using my nomex hood from work but its only good till the 40s. Any personal experiences with a good bacallava.

Well I don't ride that cold. I usually draw the line at the mid 30's. But for me the Schampa Warmskin Balaclava is ths shizit! Sometimes I even wear it if it's below 65 degrees, just to keep the chill off the ole neck at interstate speeds. Word to the wise: I wish I had got one that was a bit longer in the neck, and/or tucked in better/farther under the jacket. If you have a low necked jacket you may have issues with it wanting to come un-tucked while riding sport bikes (head back stance).
