When we started working with NuYarn to develop this neck gaiter, we wanted to make sure it was not just another face covering. Unique designs on both the Full Neck Gaiter and Mini Neck Gaiter give you a product that can do more and do a better job at it!
Technical products all start with the materials you put in them and the Neck Gaiters have the best of the best. Ultralight merino wool keeps things light, while still keep you warm. This merino wool gives you maximum comfort against skin for any adventure!
The Full Neck Gaiter has a unique sloped cut on one end that allows you to tuck it underneath a hat while still covering your nose. This cut reduces any instances where a traditional neck gaiter might slide down by accident.
The Mini Neck Gaiter's unique design utilizes a natural stretch fit to help block dust or cold. Additionally, a double layer of merino wool (MINI GAITER ONLY) is built into the gaiter in front of your nose and mouth for increased protection.

Sloped cut on Full Neck Gaiter enables you to tuck the gaiter in a hat or have additional coverage around your neck.

The Mini Neck Gaiter utilizes an natural stretch fit design to block more dust or cold, and is also double layered in front of your nose and mouth for increased protection!
Merino wool has built-in bacteria resistant properties, reducing odor and helping you enjoy being around yourself on the trail!

Outdoor vitals uses Nuyarn® Technology in all of our merino wool fabrics & apparel. Nuyarn is a spinning technology that releases the natural performance characteristics of wool fiber that are otherwise twisted out by traditional wool spinning methods.
Essentially the result is performance products made from natural fibers that can outperform synthetics.
Nuyarn can make wook that performs as closely as possible to the way it does in nature, to rival or exceed the performance of synthetic alternatives.
Types of Spinning
Ring Spun & Traditional Core Spun techniques compress the natural air pockets in the fiber, create loops, & restrict the natural movement of the fibers -essentially creating a rope-like structure that can be itchy next to skin.
Nuyarn® does not twist the fibers. Instead it drafts merino fibers along a high performance filament, resulting in 2 ply yarns with much more volume & aeration. (This 2 ply yarn structure is 35% finer than yarns spun on a conventional ring frame. Combined with the Nuyarn® thermal advantage, this offers the capacity to engineer much lighter, high performance fabrics as a result.)
The Nuyarn® method of twist-free spinning allows us to create products that outperform traditional merino wool & synthetics, and offer a natural enhancer to athletic performance.

Fishing on the Oregon is chilly in the winter. This wool gaiter is perfect. Hat, headband, low or high gaiter. It does it all.
This gaiter is really nice and warm.The material is soft and smooth around the neck and face.
I guess it depends on you exact use case but for me the size of the small one is too small to be that useful. Quality is good material is nice but probably opt for the larger one unless you have a specific need.
Great fit great feel! I love it❤️
This was the last piece of the "temperature adjusting" puzzle that I needed. This light yet warm neck gaitor feels too light for the amount of warmth it retains. Layering the hoods of my Dragonwool hoodie, Vario jacket and if needed, my Loftek Adventure jacket works well, but add this neck gaitor and my temperature control is complete. Whether I need a light layer to keep cold air off my neck or I turn into the biting wind and need to cover my nose, the multi-use neck gaitor has an upward shape that easily pulls up to cover without readjusting underneath hoodies or hats.
Lightweight and warm for less than the price of a nice lunch, Yes Please!
I look forward to many years of use year round.
