I use this for cross-country skiing in the winter, and really all during the winter as well (biking to the school in the snow is also awesome.) Great piece because you can be motoring, working pretty hard, and it'll keep you and your throat plenty warm, without overheating. It's also pretty durable.
The material is fairly dense and doesn't always dry out the fastest - but that's wool for you, and
I wear mine all winter long. Very comfortable, even indoors, very warm to cover the crack between hat and collar. Even pulls up over your nose in severe temps. At these prices, I got several for holiday gifts.
It works great as a neck warmer, but it works even better as a headband! My ears get really cold when I run in the early mornings in the winter in Maine and my polarfleece headbands have worn out. Hats are too hot and it seems this gaiter can be either neck or head. Also, now my petzl fits better up there! Love it!
in the winter, my neck craves a second skin - silk and or the right wool. i have many many many scarves. i recently added 3 of these neck gaiters to my stable and find they are perfect for working in the kitchen when a stray scarf could be messy at least or disastrous at worst. i will wear the gaiters out, too, with some silk to gussy them up a bit.
It's been a few years since I've worn anything similar. I'm not a scarf guy, so I wanted something to keep my neck warm that was slim and unobtrusive. This fits the bill perfectly. The warmth to weight ratio is perfect, it's dense enough to keep out the wind and chill, and long enough to pull up over my nose and cheeks without compromising my neck. For cold winter days and nights this is a must ha
Absolutely love this piece! I have the green color and it goes well with my outfit even just walking around town! I use it for biking to work and it is absolutely wonderful. I can't imagine my winter without it.
I use this in combination with the balaclava on super cold days. It's the perfect companion in that it adds an extra layer of warmth and protection from the elements. It's a little challenging to stretch it over your chin so I wouldn't rely on it alone to provide more than neck warmth and protection, but working in concert with the balaclava it's tremendous. You could even forgo a scarf on walks a
I use this product when im biking in cold weather or just in general REALLY cold weather. Its easily the best gaiter ive ever had, its proportion is perfect for me it fits exactly half on my face and half on my neck when pulled up. The only thing that someone might have a problem with is the seams. If your picky or sensitive you might have a problem with the seams being scratchy. The back side tho
Despite its small size, this Ibex piece has become one of my favorites. I'm an avid runner, and once the weather here in Minnesota drops below about 45 degrees (this is about half the year), this gaiter comes in handy. It's stretchy enough that I can pull it up over my nose, mouth, and ears, and it pretty much stays in place, especially with a stocking hat on. It does a great job of warming up
This neck warmer is wonderful. I wear them all the time alpine and cross country skiing. If I were awesome enough to winter bike, I would use it for that also. (My commute is over 15 miles, and that gets cold, and I'm a wuss). The nice part about these neck warmers over other people's wool neck warmers is that these aren't fuzzy. which means they frost less, and don't get fibers in your nose,
Ok let me start by saying I have personally bought 3 of these, it started with just one for myself, then for my 10 year old sister and after my fiance stole my sisters I had to buy her a replacement! Works great for all size people and can be easily slid down or up depending on conditions. I have let at least 5 different people borrow these and I know of at least 2 that went out and bought them! T
Worry not, no redneck when wearing this gator[sic]. Perfect wear for any outdoor activity and an essential cool weather component to any cycling enthusiast. This neck gaiter provides warmth and comfort when the mercury begins it's yearly plunge. All my fears of wool as functioning body garment have been allayed. Wool: not your grandma's knit anymore.
This gaiter is nice and snug, so it keeps my neck warm with no gaps. It can be pulled up over my mouth and nose and won't fall down. I've used it to ski at sub-zero temperatures and was able to breath through it and it didn't collect any frost. It is versatile enough for active sports, dog walks, and trips to town.
I recently moved to Colorado from California - and I really do love the cold weather. But you must dress correctly of course. I'm often outside for cycling, rock climbing, ice climbing, hiking/backpacking and this often happens in 20-30F weather.
Recently I discovered the neck gaiters to supplement other high collar clothing, wondrous. I own a Smartwool gaiter (obviously wool also) and just f
I use the neck gator in the cold weather for motorcycle riding and cold weather sailing. Feels a little bit too small but, then again, I don't just use it for my neck as I pull it up over my nose. I would also like it to be a bit longer to cover my neck more when I pull it up over my nose.
The neck gaiter has easily replaced my fleece neck gaiter, it dries faster, keeps me warmer, and is easier to breath through. I have skied in -10 degree days this year, without frost bite due to this gaiter. It is just a touch too snug sometimes.
When you are wearing a top that lacks neck protection, the gaiter is exactly what you need. At times I am wearing a crew neck top and rather than layer on a shak, I will put the gaiter on instead. Works like a charm and in fact, will provide greater wind protection and thus warmth, than just the high-collar design of most shak tops. Get this accessory - it is great to have with you and it folds
I had received this neck gaitor as a gift last year and decided to buy some more for the family when they were recently put on sale. Ibex has put together a solid product which covered all my primary concerns....comfort, versatility, and style.
I occasionally use this when cycling. I love that it doesn't stink even after wearing over the mouth. I do wish it were 2 inches longer�sometimes when I cinch my bike helmet it will ride out out of the collar (I know it wasn't meant to be used as a balaclava per se... it will suffocate if pulled over the nose).
Its easy to wash, it keeps my neck warm in the midst of my perspiring in this cool
I always pack a spare during very cold weather adventures. It can be used as a neck tube, but it is so much more...... hand warmer, seat warmer, endowment pad(inside shorts), toque, and most often as an ultra warm headband when folded double.
When Ibex first came out with these, I bought a black one. I've had it for years and it is amazingly useful. It started to wear out with holes from rubbing against my beard for years and years. So, I bought one of the new ones. Much lower quality and it fits a lot tighter. The material seems a lot thinner, it seems like it has less layers of material(the old ones had an outer material (mine b
Why on Earth would you sew a label into this garment?
I am so perplexed by you, Ibex. The wool is soft and study and the neck "warmer" is comfortable in both cool and warm temperatures. It is well constructed with tight, flat seams. What I cannot understand is why you would sew a 1.5" x 2" nylon "flag" type label inside it! It feels like there's dry pine needles stuffed into the gaiter as well as creating a non-breathing patch on my neck. Which becomes a wet, cold spot. I've thought about taking a seam ripper to it but the stitching is so fine I am concerned I will open up the seam. Please consider printing or screening your label directly to the fabric.
Personally, I bought 5 of the foreskins. I loved my foreskin and then wanted to give a foreskin to my other friends and boyfriend!! I really like combining the foreskin with the Knee warmers on a cold day in New England. Thanks ibex.
