THANK YOU! This gaiter saved my life (or at least my face) on my first snowboarding trip of the season. Less annoying than the full balaclava or the gaiters or buffs that have to be facing a particular way-- you just pop this puppy over your head and leave it around your neck when you dont want it, and pull it up for easy, warm, and SOFT coverage when you need to. You can also pull it up as a hat(ish) deal if you need to. It dries super fast, is light, and fits easily in your pocket. Best bang for your buck gaiter out there.
