Default Best Breathable , stretching Neck Gators ?

I ran a search and was unable to find anything up to date.

My neck , face and ears can not handle any more burns because cancer is setting in! Iím always wearing my Cowboy hat but thatís not possible when surf fishing or high wind days. I need breathable fabric with good stretch so I can slide it up over my ears and that will stay put . Used for the Salt and Hunting.





Thanks
Wick

This is what I have settled on. The cut allows the back to get high enough for you hat to hold it without mashing your nose and the flared bottom provides complete neck coverage all the way beyond your shirt collar.

Another vote for the HUK. I didnt like the price but its worth the money and they run sales often if you get on the email. I think I got the last one for under 20

I WILL NOT spend another dime with salt armor after my last issue taking cooldad time to get a refund. Not to mention there is zero comparison with them and huk

The SAfishing ones work fine but their shipping is painfully slow sometimes.

Ive used the Mission neck gaiters that I bought from Lowes. They worked well for years but I decided to use one for hunting and ozoned it with my hunt clothes. The ozone degraded the elastic in the bands at the top and bottom now the gaiter is loose and sags.

Im wearing a Mission gaiter in my avatar from when I was shredding my pasture (and killing rats) and it really helps to filter out the dust and shredding debris which wrecks havoc on my nasal passages.

Good luck MrWick

Look at the Simms and Columbia ones. At one point I got my son some of the SA ones but they were very cheaply made compared to some of the others. I can't stand wearing them but I see them all the time on my boat. The Simms ones with the more open mesh over the mouth/nose look pretty good. I bought my son some Columbia ones to wear to school during covid and they held up well and he seemed to like them alot better than some of the others.

You might also consider some of the lightweight hoody shirts in the real breathable material like from Aftco. Some of their shirts have a built in neck gaiter and a hood. I think I might could go the hood better than the neck gaiter.

I use these. I like the mesh panel in front and the wind "gills" on the sides. The shape is also better for me than the standard tubes.

Simms has been the best I’ve tried, by a long shot.

HUK is the best for breathable and comfortable that I have used. The SA are basically a cotton material that just collects your sweat. I liked the GILL that I had but after a few washes the threading around the mesh breathable material came out, leaving me with a open mouth hole.

I have tried several different brands and I like these the best. The flare at the bottom is leaps and bounds better than the "straight" neck gaiters.
