I love the green color but wasn't sure if lux would be to heavy for a gaiter - I was wrong! Its not bulky, doesn't get too hot (in the bay area) and is easy to quickly pull on my face when passing other runners. And the beautiful color makes it a go to for me to wear on other outings where I might not be working out. After a few washes, it became a lot less clingy over my mouth while breathing hard.
I’ve been struggling to find a mask to wear during exercise. I run and bike and this gaiter is the best. I pull the back up over my ponytail so it keeps a snug fit over my face. Because it’s snug it doesn’t billow away and toward your face as you breathe rapidly. And it doesn’t absorb smells. I used it several times this past week during pace runs and i loved it. I didn’t feel like it was difficult to breathe. Granted, i wear a mask daily at work as a doc so i am used to it, but it’s the best one I’ve used with exercise. I just ordered the other 2 colors.
The fabric is a gorgeous color and oh so soft. I wore it as a head band during the day, then as a running mask in the evening. It is not bulky in either configuration. It was still hot (87 degrees at 8pm) so when the path was completely clear I did pull it down for some mask free breaths. I can imagine using this in all seasons for runs, hikes, bike rides, and walking the dog.
