Men's Alaskan Hardgear Convertible Neck Gaiter
One minute the Alaskan weather is balmy and fair. The next, temperatures are plummeting and wind-driven sleet is stinging your cheeks like a swarm of hornets. That's when you'll be glad you've got the Alaskan Hardgear;® Convertible Neck Gaiter. With a yank of the built-in bungee, it transmutes from head-hugging beanie to a face-shielding gaiter that resists winter's worst. The lofty 84% polyester/16% spandex Polartec® stretch fleece traps heat next to skin and fends off wind, yet never feels soggy or scratchy like a standard scarf. It's also lightweight and quite thin – easy to carry in a tool box or stash in a jacket. We've even given it a curved bottom that tucks under the coat collar when worn as a gaiter and covers your ears when worn as a cap. Grab one and put a lid on Alaska's whiplash weather.
While a gaiter can do a bang-up job covering your face, it is not intended to be used as a medical-grade face mask or as a replacement for N95 respirators as effective measures to prevent disease, illness or the spread of viruses.
