Did the trick

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

I tried using a scarf before making this purchase. Get a Neck Gaiter and forget the hassel of trying to make a scarf stay tied. Another perk - smart wool is warm and doesn't seem to hold the moisture and get wet even when it is over your mouth and nose. Must be the magical qualities of smart wool.

Great gaiter

Gave this gaiter to my mom as a gift. She was super stoked because she is out in the cold all day. It works great and keeps the cold out.

A great value for a wool gaiter

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

There are probably 20 different gaiters on the market. Of those probably half are wool or a wool blend. Of those I think this SmartWool gaiter is a great value.

It pulls up over my face/nose when the wind is howling and still keeps my neck covered. It also seems to hold its shape too. I have a 16.5 inch neck and its nice and snug, but not restrictive.

The material is a double knit (like a tube) so it's pretty heavy, and honestly it takes a little getting used to breathing through it when needed. Sitting on the chair lift, I pull this thing up to my eyeballs and wait for relief.

It's cozy, functional, good quality, and competitively priced. Give it a try.

Does anyone know what the measurement of...

Does anyone know what the measurement of this gaiter is, laid flat, measured from side to side and from top to bottom? Arc'teryx is 8 inches across, but don't know length.

Responded on

I have not worn this neck gaiter so I invite correction if someone has more personal experience. But the specs I have read from Smartwool say that it is 8x10.

Awesome Product

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I grabbed one of these for cold bike rides into the office. Works like a charm. It doesn't stretch out too much and even when it does a quick wash puts it right. I've used it biking, hiking, and skiing in the BC interior. I have no complaints except that I lost it and I have to wait a few weeks for the new one to get here.

Woohoo I got my gaiter back!!!

I've had one of these Smartwool neck gaiters forever. I got it for winter trail walking in NH but ended up using it as my everyday scarf too. Last week I lost it somewhere. Luckily Backcountry had it in stock with free 2-day shipping, and saved me a couple dollars by pricematching another store. I ordered it Monday and got it today (Wednesday), so I'm back in business for tomorrow's trail walk! The gaiter is great - brand new of course, tags attached, 100% merino wool, good length (pulls up over your nose when it's super-cold out). My only gripe is the big tag on the inside but I can live with that. Thank you Backcountry for "saving my neck" :-)

Great neck Gaitor

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've used this several days in the backcountry this year and its doubled as a "headband" while ascending. I still use a balaclava for my face on very cold days, but this does the job on warmer ones. Good smartwool quality as expected.

Nice

More comfortable than fleece.
Very soft.
I use it as a hat.
Would endorse the product.

Meh

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

The one I got didn't look like the picture shows now, but I assume the essence is the same.
I used this on a day when it was about 30-32 and a heavy snow was falling, which means that there was a lot of moisture on the outside and also I was breathing rather heavy because I was working harder. Anyway, I found this thing suffocating me more often than not. Once it got wet, it stopped being breathable. So, I'll only be using this one on dry and cold days, if it's wet and cold I bought a couple others to try out.

Nice

This gaiter is one of several I have from different brands. There honestly isn't a lot to differentiate between them, as they all do the job. The only quibble I have with the Smartwool piece is the material doesn't seem to be quite as high quality as some others. I have had more pilling on this piece than any of my others, by far. All in all. though, it is a nice, versatile piece to have on those cold days.

Worthy

Usually wear a fleece neckwarmer skiing..love smartwool so got the neck gaitor. Was pleased. Just as warm as the fleece, and I believe more breathable...and was not itchy. Fleece or smartwool neck warmer I would say are equal in comfort and warmth.

SmartWool Neck Gaiter

YES PLEASE!

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.

Warm!!!

Do you want something enough to warm and convinient wearing and cheap.....etc.
There is one choice... smartwool neck gaiter.

Great gaiter

It's true there's a tag inside of the gator but I don't notice it at all when it's on. This is a warm, smell-free, awesome piece of clothing for the winter. Love it!

Super versatile

From a cyclist's perspective: Versatile enough to serve as neck-warmer, neck-and-ear-warmer, or near-equivalent-to-a-balaclava. The wool fabric has enough tension to stay in place no matter where you stretch it around your head. But it's soft and itch-free. And no matter how much you stretch it, one wash (yes, it's machine-washable) gets it back to its original shape. Cycling jackets and long-sleeve jerseys don't do your neck justice. The Smartwool Neck Gaiter is the cure.
