The Best Neck Gaiters

For fashion, you can’t beat a scarf. They dress an outfit up or down, keep your neck warm, and can hide coffee stains. But during a workout, scarves are bulky, and they often bind up, snag, and unravel. Instead, use a soft neck gaiter to keep your neck warm with lightweight and cozy fabric. Especially for cycling and running, neck gaiters are great because they can be pulled up over your mouth and nose to protect against the wind. The tube design is perfect for adding an extra layer of warmth to cold weather gear without inhibiting your range of movement. When choosing a neck gaiter, decide which material, size, and weight will work best for your outdoor activities.
