The EDC accessory for your freaking face.

 

Just wanted to get peoples insight on neck tubes. The people that I have met who hunt or fish during the fall/winter season swear by them. What are some quality neck tubes for everyday use (fall/winter).

 

Let me know,

Cheers,

I only use a Balaclava when it's that cold out. I have a few, but prefer the UA.

I still have one or two of the polypropylene neck gaitors I used in the army (more than 15 years ago, now). They work great, but I don't know where to get more of them. REI sells something similar, though not as good.

I consider them indispensable, if it's really cold out there. They can take the place of a scarf, a watch cap, an ear-warmer headband, or even a balaclava. They are best worn with a watch cap, to keep the neck, ears, or face covered.

I bought these when they were on Kickstarter - pure Australian merino wool sewn in the USA.

Around here we call them neck gaiters. They are very effective at keeping the face and neck warm. When using public transit and walking I would wear 2, one around my face and another around the neck. Switched to a hoodie so I don't use them anymore.

 

A thin cheap one is good if it's not too cold - -10c or 14f. Mine was $4 from Mark's Work Wearhouse in Canada. Made from acrylic. 

 

Most of Canada and lots of the USA is far colder so thicker would be better.

 

Just looked for the link on Mark's site but they are only showing ones from Helly Hansen for double the cost.

I actually just took advantage of this special they're running with SA Fishing: https://safishing.co.../#configuration it is 5 face/neck shields for $15. I doubt they will serve much in terms of warmth for winter, but I figure they could be pretty nice for some neck cover during longer days out fishing this summer.
