A knit gaiter to keep cold air out of your jersey.

Sometimes you just need a little extra layer to keep cold air from creeping into your winter jacket. And lucky for you, the Giordana PolyPro Neck Gaiter does just that.

Constructed from polypropylene, this seemingly simple tube-shaped accessory slips over your head and tucks into your jacket collar. The gaiter is high enough to cover your neck and act as a place to tuck your chin when cold winds start to blow. It was constructed of knit polypropylene. Now, you're probably wondering what in the world this material is? After all, polypropylene sounds similar to polyester — so what's the difference? Well, polypropylene and polyester are both polymers, meaning that they're essentially plastics. However, where they differ is that polypropylene is hydrophobic to the point that it's unable to absorb water. And, as a result, it spreads moisture out over a larger surface area, which rapidly accelerates evaporation. So, in short, these fibers ensure that moisture is wicked away, keeping you dry and warm. Additionally, the knit gaiter features a soft finish that provides a high level of comfort against the skin.

The Giordana PolyPro Knitted Neck Gaiter is available in one size in the color Grey/black.

My go to neck gaiter.

Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

This neck gaiter is one of my “foundation” pieces to wear when the weather starts getting cold. Simple but well made. Adjusts well to cover as much or as little as you want. Breathable but cuts the wind. This is a piece that makes cold rides possible. Bought one for my wife and she loves it too.

Must have bit of kit...

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

I had never heard of these prior to getting a "short" one in a gift pack. It was good but only covered my neck. I passed that on to my dad to use walking the dog on cold days and got the Giordana. Bliss I have worn it scrunched up on my neck and used it to cover my ears and the back of my head. Brilliant addition to cold weather gear. My ears always stick out below hats, now on cold days I just pull the gaiter up and over and am happy as can be.

perfect for that extra neck layer. I only pull up over my chin but its super comfortable and keeps the back of my neck warm. It does exactly what i bought it for. It does look really cool

Great function and versatile.

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

This neck gaiter does what I need it to do and is versatile. When it is colder I pull it up and over my ears and partially on my winter skull cap (LG or Castelli). I have ridden with it up on my chin under my mouth. When I get a little hotter and need to regulate the temp, I just pull it down on my neck. It has a nice elasticity to the end of it to really seal on your face or whatever position. A regular cold piece for me. *Update*, I wear this almost every ride in the winter. It works great at keeping me comfortable.

First gaiter

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

This is my first gaiter - I expected some reduced airflow through my mouth when wearing it (obviously), but I simply could not breath through it during even mild intensity cycling (heart rate 130-140 bpm). This was while it was dry. When it got wet with snot and sweat, I felt like I was being gently waterboarded. Sorry, really wanted to like it (it looks awesome), but functionally didn't work for cycling (maybe it would work for hiking or just as a neck warmer when cycling?)

defiantly agree, while it does help when I'm riding at very high speeds it doesn't provide sufficient air flow the rest of the time at normal speed. But great neck warmer!

Too tight and can't breath through it

Familiarity:I returned this product before using it

I ordered this gator as a transition piece from Winter to cold-blowing Spring. My winter one is marino wool and is broader at the bottom than the top so it stays inside my jersey with no draftiness. The marino wool is also nice and breathable. So, when I got this I realized how nice my Winter one is, because the Giodana is tight around the neck (and I'm female), will not offer the draftproofiness of my other one, and is suffocating to breath through. So, I'd say no-go on this one. The one I like is Raffa, and would love Competitive Cyclist to offer their products again.

Merino wool is spelled with an "e" not an "a"... for all you precise english comp majors!!!! LOL

The most underrated winter accessory

Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

It seems that much of the buzz in cold weather cycling is around shoe covers and gloves, but the neck gaiter is by far the most under-appreciated accessory. When paired with a wind vest, it extends your riding well into the fall. When paired with a winter cycling cap and jacket, you cover pretty much every crevice that cold can creep into on winter rides. The best part is how you can roll it up over your face or down to your neck to account for changes in temperature (ie, when you're climbing, descending, etc.). You do have to take off your helmet to remove the neck gaiter if it gets too warm, but this is hardly even a consideration in my book. Since its just as important to look good on the bike as be comfortable, its nice that the black on black Giordana graphics don't conflict with other brands of jackets, jerseys, etc.

How's the 'breathing/ventilation' while wearing it over the nose? Restrictive?

Its really not bad. You do get some restriction, but if anything I think it helps a little keep warm; the material is pretty thin. It can be a little difficult keeping the neck gaiter up over your nose, but i typically try to have it on under my helmet strap an fairly high up on the back of my neck.

Thanks, I'll give it a try. Any balaclava, as I would like to be able to ride in the 30's if possible...(brand) preference??? I'll check back again later, and Thanks again for your input (love Giordana)!
