I didn’t have much use for neck gaiters before 2020, living in Northern California where my coldest run is high 30s/low 40s. But in the age of covid and face masks, I’ve become quite the connoisseur of gaiters and masks. Now that it’s cooler out, I’ve been trying some of the cold weather gaiters and this one is my favorite. It’s warm, but not so warm that it’s uncomfortable. And it’s breathable, but not in the “this feels unsafe” kind of way - it’s thick enough that I feel protected from any germs I might encounter, but I don’t feel myself gasping for air when I wear it. I have asthma so I try to avoid the “gasping for air” feeling. Anyway, would highly recommend! I also love that it’s reversible, and it’s wool so
I don’t have to wash it after every run.
The fabric feels nice to the touch. It does what its intended to do. Running with it is very cozy, but don't expect it to stay up while in motion. I really appreciate the ergonomic design compared to other gaiters that are just one length. Perfect for running and grocery shopping.
I use it while running; I hate wearing scarves so I pull it up only running into people or passing them on my route. I've switched to running secluded trails so I can avoid people during these crazy times. This scarf doesn't get horribly warm or wet; still does the job when it gets chilly and windy. Love the color too.
Fits perfectly and lasts whether on quick or long runs -- regardless of the temperature outside. Highly recommend!
