Protect and be protected. This multi-function gaiter is incredibly versatile. It's made from a lightweight, UPF 50 stretch knit, that will protect you from damaging ultraviolet rays. It's also a convenient mask when needed, when visiting public places. It also converts to an easy headband, with plenty of stretch for that just-right fit. And when you wear the runbow, you'll always have happy, bright color - wherever you go.

Okay as a headband but not good as a face covering. It doesn’t stay up and when it does it is difficult to breathe through. The rainbow pattern is cute though so I kept it.
...but not so much as a facial covering. :( And I had *such* high hopes. I had to keep it in place with a hair band in the back as it kept slipping down. However, once I had it in place, I couldn't breathe through it. It stuck to my nose/mouth and was so much harder to breathe through than any of my other gaiters and facial coverings. It is okay as an emergency-use facial covering (e.g. wear it around my neck and pull it up if I pass a person) but not as a constantly-worn facial covering for busy areas. It rocks as a headband, however, and I love wearing it to keep the sweat off my forehead.
I love this gaiter for my initial purpose of using when needed for COVID, however with my MIL’s recent cancer diagnosis I have discovered a new purpose as a head scarf! Bringing gay pride to chemo chairs near you...
Perfect to wear running or hiking to keep the sun off my neck and be ready to pull on my face when needed. LOVE the bold colors, very comfortable!
It makes me sad to read all the negative reviews on here. I had low expectations for this gaiter, but was pleasantly surprised to find that it was light, fit around my neck comfortably, and could be easily pulled up over my nose while passing people on the trails/streets.
As you can see from my photo, it is not tight fitting around my face. I think my head is just large enough to hold it up over my nose. I usually reach for this gaiter before my Buff just because I love the rainbow stripes so much!
Love this gaiter, we ALWAYS need more pride gear, Fam 🏳️🌈 but unfortunately the unfinished edge started fraying badly after its first wash :( Wish it would have held up more like my Flyte I’ve had for years. It fits well and is breathable in comparison to Buff and other standard fabric gaiters, but it’s just not holding up the same.
I've always loved all the OIselle products I have, so I was very disappointed after my first run with this gaiter. It's pretty, but you'd have thought a company that makes products for women would have made this so it would fit snugly around a woman's smaller face, either with elastic or a drawstring. This has neither, so I had to safety pin the back to keep it up. It's also very hard to breathe through when running! Very hard! I'll keep for use when running errands, etc. but will never try to run in it again.
I wanted to love this gaiter but there are 2 fundamental issues with it: 1) its way too loose and doesn't stay up over my nose/mouth while running (which makes it basically useless) and 2) the fabric is very thick. Of all the gaiters/masks I've worn this one is the worst for breathing. Really uncomfortable. Such a bummer as it's adorable!
