Neck gaiters have a huge range of potential uses. Fortunately, they also happen to be ideal for every type of weather.
Using Neck Gaiters in Warm Weather
Even on the hottest of days, a neck gaiter is lightweight enough to keep you comfortable and cool. You can actually wear your neck gaiter on your head to protect your hair from dust, bugs, and sweat. You can also say goodbye to getting scorched by the sun — because they're lighter than a hat or baseball cap, neck gaiters are a more breathable way to protect your scalp from sunburns.
Of course, gaiters can also protect your neck from the sizzling heat of the sun. Our neck gaiters offer UPF 50 sun protection, so they block 98% of the sun's rays. If that isn't cool enough for you, try dipping your neck gaiter in cold water before putting it on; it's a simple hack that can keep you feeling refreshed for hours. Pulling your neck gaiter up over your face also helps you avoid breathing in dust or pollen and stops you from enjoying an impromptu meal of bugs during a bike ride.

Wearing a gaiter around your neck can even provide more warmth than loose-fitting scarves. Plus, they're easy to pull up around your face, so you can quickly protect your cheeks and nose from those frigid winter winds.
