Style# 1774181


This lightweight, stretchy gaiter covers your neck, ears, face and head and is fortified with moisture wicking, sweat-activated super cooling, UPF 50 sun protection, and our new Omni-Shade™ Sun Deflector with tiny dots that reflect heat away from your body.

This product is crafted of our latest innovative fabric - Omni Shade™ Sun Deflector with UPF 50 sun protection. Those little sun-deflecting dots you see are specially designed to deflect sunlight away from the body so you feel cooler and stay protected. The dots reflect the sun's rays so well that the fabric will shimmer in any light. The stronger the light, the harder it’s working. And the soft, stretchy woven material feels amazing next to your skin while staying light and cool to the touch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product I will be using it when I ride my motorcycle, Right now it is a little too hot outside. But i will soon have it out on an 800 miles trip, and I will get back to this review

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light & Breathable I don't have a baseline to gauge the effectiveness of the Omni-Freeze, but this item is lightweight and breathable. I much prefer wearing this gaiter than sunscreen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First Neck Gaiter I bought Never had I bought one before until now. And I have to say that I’m very satisfied with this item. Easy to use and keeps you cool. Protects you from getting sunburned and you can use it in many ways.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality and lightweight This neck gaiter is great for keeping the sun off while out fishing. I've owned some of the cheap versions of these gaiters you see advertised sometimes on the internet and this beats those hands down. Lightweight, breatable, and keeps the sun off

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not great for running I got this to keep my neck covered while running (Southwest US, high UV, very hot) and it's not very good for that purpose. It's not stiff enough to keep itself up to cover your neck; it scrunches down and only covers maybe 2 inches vertically. It's too loose to wrap it over your mouth (and cover your neck in the process), it'll just fall down. To keep it up, covering your neck, you have to put it over your nose. You can breathe through it, but not very well. It'd be fairly uncomfortable while running but you could probably get used to it. The main problem with having it over your nose is it looks pretty weird. That's more of a problem with neck gaiters in general, and if I were running an ultramarathon in the desert or something else where function is the only thing that matters and appearance is an afterthought, it would probably perform alright. The other issue is unless you're wearing a collared shirt, you can't pull it down far enough to completely cover the gap left on the back of your neck (between the gaiter and your shirt). It's just a tube and it doesn't have flaps at the bottom, so it gets stopped by your shoulders before it'll completely cover the gap. Ultimately for running, a cap with a neck flap would be better. Unfortunately I still haven't found one that's long enough to close the gap between the flap and the back of my shirt collar, and clips/ties/velcros together in the front so it doesn't get blown around in the wind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Neck gaiter This item works great went fishing for 5 hrs mid summer in Florida and it kept the sun off and I wasn’t hot or sweating while wearing it! Great product!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I ordered this item for our trip out west. I have used it twice and found it to be exactly what I was looking for. It did it’s job. Love it! I also bought the arm sleeves, no issue with the sun and it has a very cool airy feeling. Loved them both.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Neck Gaiter is the answer! I have sun induced psoriasis and have to stay shaded whenever outside. I have tried all kinds of things. The Neck Gaiter is perfect for my needs, it fits well is stretchable and can either be a neck covering or a neck and head covering. The wicking design keeps it cool and comfortable. I now have two so I can rotate and wash them. The cost is good and the function is great. Anyone out in the sun too much should try this.
