After mid-November, we rarely clip-in without something like Pearl Izumi's Thermal Neck Gaiter on or stuffed into a jersey pocket. It blends Pearl's insulating, moisture-managing Thermal Dry fabric with a draw cord opening that sets it apart from the rest of the gaiter competition.
Instead of either riding with the gaiter pulled up to your eyes or constantly drooping down past your jaw line, the draw cord lets you decide where you want the gaiter to sit and then keep the damn thing there. In a pinch, you can also convert it to a cap by completely closing the opening. It's not an ideal solution, but when you realize you've forgotten a cap twenty minutes into a winter ride, you don't have the luxury of being picky.

I know this is really considered a small "accessory" item but man oh man! What a difference a good quality neck gaiter makes on a ride. The difference with this item compared to all others out there is this one comes with an adjustable draw cord. So before set off you simply adjust the tension as you like it based on where on your face you want the thing to sit. That puppy stays there. What a concept! Its only coming down if you purposefully pull it down(or back up). Gone are the days where after 15-20min into a ride the silly thing slips down slowly and then you spend every 5-10 minutes fussing to get it back up to where you want it on a cold ride. If you ride in the cold where a neck gaiter is needed get this thing! Even at full price it is worth every penny!
This is nice for keeping my neck warm & I can pull it over my mouth when it's really cold. In Wisconsin it gets cold. I even wear it skiing
