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.

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.

Basic gear

This is a great piece of basic gear. Good quality, warm, soft. Definitely something to have.

Solid for the $$

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Nice and warm along with not being pantyhose thin. Thickness of a two dress socks lol.

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.

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

Responded on

Mine measures 8 inches exactly, laid flat. Has not been washed or dried yet so can't speak to potential shrinkage.

Toasty and comfy

I've had a few of these and this one is by far my favorite.

So warm and soft

  • Gender: Male
  • 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.

It's the little details that make the big differences.

It's soft, warm, and doesn't itch. It's really good.

Makes good into great

The material used in this products turns a time tested design into a great product for those harsh conditions.

awesome

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.

Solid piece for skiing

Great fit, doesn't stretch out and is long enough to pull over the face on cold days.

I don't use this a ton as I run pretty warm but the few times I have it works prefectly as designed. Keeps the neck warm and functions great as a face warmer on the lift/in the cold wind.

Much better than a balaclava on all but the most arctic of days.

Nothing works like Merino!

I don't go skiing without it!

Awesome

Awesome form and function. Incredible workmanship and materials. Has the fossil emblem right over your mouth for added coolness. And you look like a ninja when you wear it. Who could ask for more?

I didn't even need this...

Totally cool. Doesn't smell. Keeps its shape. Perfect add on to a good layering system. I didn't need this - but now I never leave without it. No 5 stars because the wool still makes me itchy sometimes.

Best I have every owned!!!

Absolutely love it. I have used it for 2 seasons already and it still is like new. Extremely warm and lightweight. As for fit, I am 6'3 185 and it fits fine! Knocks the wind out and feels comfy as could be. If and when this one ever wears out I will definately buy another. Already thinking of buying one or two more just to have if they ever stop making them.

Love It!

Best gaiter I've ever had! Warm, fits perfect, love the material - don't know how I lived without it!!! Saw the other reviews about it being too tight - I'm 5'4" 110 and it fits perfect. I also had my boyfriend try it on - he's 6'2" 220 and he loved it as well - probably going to have to buy him one for christmas if I don't want to share :}
