We sized up! This new Flyout Gaiter provides an extra wide opening, so that it's easy to extend over a ponytail or big hair. Soft, stretchy, and sweat-moving, it gives you cover and comfort. Designed specifically for warmer weather, our Flyout HoverFit is a natural wicker of moisture and sweat. This version includes two layers, for increased protection and coverage when needed.
This style is part of our Fabric Forward collection. Limited quantities are available.
- Flyout Hoverfit (polyester/tencel/spandex)
- double layer
- Oiselle logo screenprinted on outer layer
- length: 18"
- neck opening: 11"
I should have looked closer at the measurements, but as other reviewers mentioned the opening is too wide to stay up as a mask. I'm not looking for something to wear on my face for the entire run, but when I'm passing someone on a trail or sidewalk I want it to stay up easily for a minute or two. It's also about twice as long as I need for that purpose so it's too bulky around my neck for summer. I'm thinking about cutting it in half to make two shorter gaiters and sewing the opening about 2-3 inches smaller. It's a great fabric, but the dimensions just don't work for how I planned to use it.
I think many hoped that this fabric would be light, airy, and more comfortable to wear as a mask in the summer heat and humidity. The double layer (which is appropriate for safety) larger size opening, and length of gaitor create a ton of material around your neck. this is actually a WARM gaitor. The cut allows the gaitor to fall open and drape beautifully around your neck, I feel that this would be the perfect piece for a fall accessory while apple picking rather than a functional piece for the hot summer months as many had hoped. As the other reviewers have stated, the large size of the neck opening (while getting around large hair does) makes it completely functionless to wear over your face, or hands free as you'd hope to do if you are running. If you're looking for a piece that will stay up over your nose either while grocery shopping, running, or anything else, this is not it.
This is beautiful (bought the blue/slate) but unfortunately, it’s huge! Intended to pull up over my face as a mask while passing others on the trails. There’s no way it will stay up over my face, regardless of ponytail placement. My husband tried it on (6’1” 180lbs) and it fell down over his face as well. Sadly returning
Like the other recent reviewers, I feel that this is just too big! The opening is super wide (loose around face and neck), and it’s quite long too. It’s a lot of fabric around the neck for mask usage! I can see myself using this for winter layering, though.
I bought the snap/zinnia and slate/dusk colors that were just released with the wider neck opening. I love the colors but I don't love the gaiter itself at all really. My intended use was to wear this around my neck while running and pull it up over my nose and mouth, using my nose to hold it up, which is what I do with my other 3 (non-oiselle) gaiters, but the opening is so wide that there is no way to wear it like that. I'm actually not sure how one would wear this over one's face at all? Also, with the double layer of fabric, the wider opening, and it being quite long as well, it is just way too much fabric sitting around my neck.
We ordered a couple of these, the material is great, weight is awesome, but they suffer from being the wrong size. You can't actually pull them up to cover your mouth and nose and expect them to stay. They are too loose - even if you fold it over on itself (which defeats the purpose really). If they were a tad smaller, they'd be perfect. Bummer.
The material is exactly what you'd expect but the hole is too lose to stay up and use as a mask when running like i had hoped. you can easily hold the material over your nose and mouth but i wanted this to stay up on my face like a mask for running and hiking. Because of this i will be returning.
Love all your gaiters!!! Restock!
