    Great Gaiter!

    Purchased this for a weekend at Vail. Great product. Will be back to purchase more products from SmartWool.

    Perfect neck gaiter- soft, cozy, keeps your face warm, and doesn't freeze (at least not yet). It is a nice heavier-weight gaiter, so great for stormy days. I do find the picture to be a little misleading about the size- it's not a tall neck tube, rather it's more designed like your "classic" gaiter that comfortably covers your neck and lower face, but doesn't have a ton of extra material on top of that. Definitely would recommend!

    Face saver!

    I have only used thinner synthetic neck gaiters in the past so this was a very noticeable upgrade. It is soft to the touch keeps my face 3x as warm from what i'm use to! Oh and it does not get soaked with condensation from the breath. Will be getting another one!

    Toasty warm

      I was having problems with my old fleece neck gaiter getting wet and cold on snowy ski days. Smartwool solved this problem. When the gaiter gets wet, it doesn't feel like a sopping rag next to your face. It does raise your temp a few degrees. But totally worth it for me. Love this gaiter!

      Smartwool is waaaarm!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I used to wear a turtlefur neck gaiter. It works well, but doesn't hold a candle to the smartwool. It isn't as stuffy when the temperature rises during the day skiing, and is plenty warm when the temperature drops.

      Neck Gaiter

      • Fit: True to size

      While I have not used this garment to protect my Adam's Apple from that pesky Jack Frost, it seems to be well constructed and very soft. I feel it will serve me well in January at JH and February in Telluride. There's no business like snow business!

      Warm, good addition

      This is a warm piece of gear that punches outside of its weight class. Super comfortable, dries quick, will keep you warm into freezing conditions. Have used for running, skiing, winter fishing. Slight tip - if u throw it in the wash (which I know ur not supposed to do w SW stuff), don't machine dry it. Air dry it and lay it flat so when it dries it has the natural fit to it.

      Perfect Gift

      I gave this as a gift and he loves it. he said its the perfect weight-not too thin, but not restricting your head movement while riding!

      Great for skiing

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I bought this to use while skiing over the holidays. My neck is always cold -- not this year. This was thin enough to go under a 1/2 zip and was easy to buckle my helmet over it. My new must-have piece of gear - was toasty warm the entire trip.

      A little slice of heaven

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Great for winter sports or just staying warm in the city, this completely replaces the need for a scarf, and while it may mess up your hair when you yank it over your head to put it on/take it off, it has the benefit of never coming untied or having annoying flappy bits blowing in the breeze.

      Easily keeps the neck warm, and I also found I was able to pull it up high in the back and overlap my wool beanie on the sides and back to completely seal out the cold. Enough fabric to reach up over the nose for those ridiculously inclement days.

      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.

      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.

      Awesome Product

      • 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

        • 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.

        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.
