Clearly, this was designed by a team who knows what these are for. It has the perfect balance of warmth, functionality and breathability - and looks cool, too. Thanks, Team Burgeon!
This does a great job as a neck gaiter, keeping the cold from sneaking in the cracks between the jacket and hat. Very comfortable tucked in under a base layer. It's thin and tightly woven, so no bulk and blocks the wind. Doesn't get soggy. I don't even notice the seam when wearing it.
It doesn't work quite as well as a face covering under heavy exertion; since the weave is so tight it's okay for moderate hiking but can't get enough air through for running. I also find it tends to slide down a bit in that application.
I bought the Be The Wolf neck gaiter to support Phil’s FKT redlining challenge. And as an alternative to cloth covid masks. I quickly realized that the neck gaiter does not make a covid safe face cover compared to a two or three layer cloth mask. Now that the weather is cooler I’ll have better chances to use the gaiter in different configurations. I tried it around the neck (nice!) and will try it as a balaclava soon.
I purchased one, and went back for a 2nd. Super comfy, light weight. Stays up. Also use it as a hat sometimes.
I take mine everywhere I go, use it everyday!
Thanks again for a great product.
