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. Or convert it to a headband, with plenty of stretch for that just-right fit.
I like the rainbow colors. It is light, I find I can breath through it. The big challenge is using it as a gaiter. It’s just too big with no way to tighten it. I’ve rigged with with a rubber band to use as a face covering when I’m on a bike ride. On the ride I keep it down, but if I stop to get some food I have to put it up. The only way it will stay up with is with my rubber band system
I love the color so much, it’s bright and fun BUT if you are planning to use to cover your face while running, it could suffocate you!!! I only pull up to cover my nose/mouth when I pass someone, even just for the few seconds, I couldn’t breathe and that was horrible. I would not recommend this product for that use but I’m sure everything else is fine 🌈
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.
