Solar Shield™ Neck Gaiter is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 32.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps "No seeums" off I was fishing the Cape this past weekend and the "No seeums" were out in force. This gaiter helped keep them off my face and neck. It was colder out and it also help keep me warm. If you guys could develop something to keep the bugs out of my eyes I'd buy it in a heartbeat. Great value for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Multifunction and works well I love this product! It works well to protect your face and neck from the sun, but you can also use it as a headband to keep your hair back. This product is a must have for anyone outdoors whether it’s working in the yard or kayaking the river.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cheap and not worth it I returned this item right after I received it in the mail. This is literally a piece of stretchy fabric sewed together and nothing more. It was so cheap that the Columbia name was just preprinted on the fabric and not even stitched on. I do not recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Performs great, but doesn't look great I've purchased Gaiters from Columbia in the past. They are for colder conditions and a lot more substantial as far as construction and materials go. I was expecting more from this gaiter. It just looks like a piece of fabric that's been cut. I've used it twice since purchasing and it works great, it just doesn't look great.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Does the job but could be better As many others have posted, this product has no seam on the ends and therefore keeps rolling down on your face/neck. When it is on, it does a great job keeping the wind off your neck and face.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Thin, not for winter. This is not what I was expecting. It is comfortable and functional, but I was expecting something more suited for winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warmth for the winter. I would recommend this product, I have a couple of these and I use them all winter. The size is great, if I want I can pull it up over my mouth, ears and head. Not to heavy so it breaths well. Great color options. The material feels good against my face. I like to use this when I go skiing or snowshoeing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Exactly what you need I really like the texture and durability of the gaiter. It is soft and stylish, at a great price. Only complaint is that the ends do roll up after a few uses, Colombia should reinforce the ends with a little more padding to avoid this.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't serve its function at all... Unlike Columbia's Freeze Zero neck gaitor, this one does not have an elastic band on the ends which holds onto your face, it just slips down your face and clumps at your shoulders. Actually it looks like they literally cut this out of a longer tube and packaged it as a "finished" product. Trust me pay more for the freeze-zero edition better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Son loves it Bought one for my son and he loves it. Light and airy, very soft material. Great pattern & perfect for fishing!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Neck gator I was really disappointed in this gater. The material is not really stretchy. It’s just a lot of money to spend for this. Sorry but I don’t recommend this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sun protection for my neck. I love this product. It's light weight and protects my neck from the sun perfectly. I work outdoor in the HOT California weather and this product serves its purpose. I will be buying more colors. It does stretch and the colors are nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product We used the neck gaiters in Iceland for a photo trip, and they were perfect! They kept us warm, and they were very versatile. I would highly recommend this product if you are looking for something soft, light weight, and will keep the wind off of your neck or face.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Selection of colors and variety Maybe I got a slight defect. This is the only Columbia product I have ever had an issue with. I own a Buff and thought this Columbia would be just as good and wasn't. I tried it on, it was not a tight enough fit on my face, even with facial hair. It felt loose. After trying it on for a few seconds the material at the ends curled and rolled at the ends. Between the loose fit, and material curling at the ends, I had to return it. I DID like the color and design options to choose from. I know Columbia has a lot of great products with excellent materials. I would like to see them fold and stitch the ends of this product so it doesn't roll at the ends. Also a tighter diameter for a better fit and for allowing allowing more options to wear this product. I'll stick to wearing my buff for now....This is the only Columbia product I have ever had an issue with. I am sure it may work better for someone else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Greatest Headgear! I love this! I am a Southern Woman, we don't sweat, we glisten. Yeah right! This headband keeps my face glistening instead of running rivers of glisten(?). I wear them all the time, I have 5 of them now!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Neck Gaiter Although it's not cold enough, yet, to wear...I am VERY happy with this purchase. Quality is excellent...soft...comfy!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as good as other types they have but it works Ok, it's not "bad" but I guess I'm just disappointed on the finishing. I have another Columbia neck gaiter that I love and wanted to have some additional ones to rotate through the wash. (I think the other one I have is the cooling version.) This does what it should but the issue I have is with the unfinished ends. It just makes it seem cheap and not up to the usual Columbia standards. Also not a fan of how you sometimes see more of the inside as it rolls over when just on your neck. But, it does what it should - protect you from the sun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome the way this can be worn in so many ways! I have several different ones. They are very light weight and can be worn in many different ways. It is a great product! It keeps me cool in this hot humid Florida heat while riding the lawn mower, motorcycle riding, etc.. Good sun protection. These go well with my other Columbia clothes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for hiking and kayaking This gaiters is perfect when I kayak or hike and don't want the back of my neck to get sunburned. I also use it instead of a scarf when windy, my neck stays cozy. It can be used as a head cover or headband. I have even pulled it up the back of my head to create a hood. Love the sun protection and breathability of the fabric. Keeps me cooler if I get it wet and wear when hiking in the heat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect I love these more than any other wind/sun blockers

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All weather Neck cover Use it to keep your head dry in sweltering heat, keep the rain and wind away in strong weather in zodiacs and kayaks and add color to your raincoat in Vancouver. Best neck cover I've found. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Many uses for this product I use my gaiter when it's not cool enough for a full scarf. It also comes in great to wear as a cap and cover my eyes when I'm sleeping on a plane. Lightweight and stylish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product This is a great product. I ordered one before and liked it so much I ordered another color for me and one for my gf. Does everything it says.
Date published: 2017-09-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great protection! I bought this because I do a lot of hiking. I keep it around my neck to keep clear of sun burn. If I hike in a dense forest I pull it up to keep the mosquitoes and other bugs from biting. This product has great functionality. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)
