I have found that fleece is just too hot for a full-head mask. My mask is thin poly, which is adequate to block the wind from my face but breathes well. I glued a little triangle of neoprene over my nose for added wind protection.
Fogging goggles is caused by warm, moist breath re-directed up into your goggles. The fix is to have unimpaired breathing openings. I am a mouth-breather when climbing so I modified the mouth opening to fit my mouth when totally open (in pant mode). This totally cured fogging goggles for me, and made breathing a lot easier too. I apply vaseline lip balm liberally to prevent windburn.
