    The Arc'teryx Rho LTW Neck Gaiter proves that the most basic pieces of gear are the most versatile.

    Arc'teryx made their merino wool Rho LTW Neck Gaiter to provide simple, versatile insulation for skiers, mountaineers, and winter campers. Wear it around your neck in cold weather, or pull it up over your nose when the wind starts howling. The Rho LTW Neck Gaiter even works as a topless hat should the need arise.

    Love me some soft merino

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    Got this for cold skiing days. I had a friend who had it in black that I was borrowing indefinitely, and figured I better just get my own.

    Fit: Fits appropriately for a gaiter. On really cold windy days it would be nice if this were a bit longer as I want to hike it up over my ears under my ski helmet, but then it leaves it a little short if my coat is zipped down. Still love it though

    Performance/Use: Use for cold, windy ski days, cold hikes and general cozy warmth. I have used this gaiter almost all ski season this year and have loved the switch to a merino gaiter vs. my previous fleece one.

    Pros/Cons: Pros: merino – stays fresh and dries quickly, serves as a nice warm baselayer and can pull up over my ears/nose under a ski helmet. Cons: when breathing heavily gets moist (typical of any gaiter, luckily merino dries fast) Wish they had this with a mouth hole for those days that you are working hard and breathing heavily, but the wind is still bitter cold that you can’t have your nose out.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    Does not flop around but does feel a bit tight on the 18 inch neck girth. I think it will loosen up a bit and reduce the choke effect after some wear and stretching.

    Ally Gaiter

    For light activity in the way cold

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size

    I have some lighter buffs, and I have a thick turtle fur for the really cold stuff on the slopes. This is nicely in-between.

    Warm enough to get me through an unexpectedly cold snap, but not so cloying as to make me want to GET IT OFF OH MY GOD GET IT OFF ME the way a really thick one can be.

    Arc' quality etc. Very nice item and not unreasonably priced.

    Winter staple for bike, run, and hike

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    I own two of these in dark blue and black, and have used them frequently the last three winters in CT and Western NY in temps below 35 deg. I run throughout the winter, and this is a must-have piece for me. Better wind resistance than fleece, but slightly itchy. Compared to the Smartwool version, the Arcteryx holds its shape better but a little itchier, otherwise they function similarly. I prefer the Arcteryx because it has a denser weave. It's worth the extra money for me, but I'm very picky. For casual use, I prefer a scarf or the Turtle Fur gaitor (fleece), which is softer, thicker and less wind resistant.

    Merino benefits in a essential gear!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    I use it for skiing/hunting/winter camping/town. Good warm/packability ratio. Comfortable and stretchable. The fit is adjusted when wearing on the chin and semi-loose on the neck, it mean it's perfect for not letting the air get in when you turn your head or taking a face shot. Can feel a little bit snug the first time over the chin, but rapidly forget it because of the wool feeling. Keep warmth when wet and no odor. Very satisfied. Will recommend for aerobic activities and all-around use, not for super cold passive activities.

    Comfortable, durable, no problems

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    I use this mostly for skiing days. I replaced a standard scarf with one of these to avoid the misalignment and snow intrusion that sometimes would happen with the scarf. It fits the bill nicely for this purpose. Some care is required when donning to avoid having it bunch up too much, but if such care is taken, it works great. I've never had trouble with comfort (not scratchy) or fit. I've probably used it for 15 full ski days, and no issues with durability. I think it's been through the wash once or twice with no problems. Highly recommended.

    Super nice but needs better QC

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size

    I ordered 3 different gaiters, the extra long smartwool, the Ibex wool and the Arc'teryx RHO. Of those three the Arc'Teryx was the coziest, and nicest feeling of the bunch. The sizing of the Arc'teryx was spot on for me, with a 16.5 inch neck. It was snug but not uncomfortable.

    However the seam wasn't completely sewn on the inside so it technically had a hole in it. For nearly 40 dollars I would expect much better quality control (QC) from the Arc'teryx crew or their vendor teams.

    Solid, functional, versatile

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    This neck gaitor does what it should. Protects from the cold, wind, elements, and does all of this while looking good. Pulled up over my nose and mouth, it helped during an evening hike. Once I warmed up a bit it was perfect down around my neck to keep the draft out. Despite being wool (merino), it is not at all scratchy on my face or neck, which is important to me, as I'm sensitive to standard wool. I think this is equally well suited to the slopes, trails, or around town. A little about me. I'm 5'10", 165, 42' chest. Outdoorsy but not a mountain expert by any means. I like things that function well and look good too. When those requirements clash, I side with function.

    So warm and soft

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I wore this for the really cold days this past season. There's nothing like nuzzling up in a warm gaiter on one of those windy blizzard days. I never had an issue with this.


      I live in Boston and use this on my cold bike commute ever day in the winter. Great coverage of the neck/face. The sizing is excellent and the material/make is unmatched. I love this thing. I took it on a winter hike up washington and it kept my face warm despite the cold winds.

      Does anyone know the width measurement of this thing? Like layed flat and measured from side to side?
