I finally got to test this in frigid temperatures, and it really impressed me.

I did a 5 hour hunt from the ground sitting the entire time in 13-22 degrees Fahrenheit. It was sub 16 for 3 hours with some wind making it feel like 8 or less.

I was totally warm. It’s loose enough that it doesn’t put pressure on your nose, tall enough to cover your eyes and easily bunches around your neck. It feels windproof, but you can breathe in and out through it without difficulty. It is a perfect product. I’ve tried merino balaclavas and thinner merino neck gaiters that don’t gut the wind, are too tight, and allow wind to come up your collar. This thing has no problems. It also fits around the collar of my Jetstream jacket nicely to keep me warm without drafts.

Somehow it regulated moisture well. Usually, I snot all over thinner neck gaiters and they get cold. This wasn’t a problem because it actually kept my nose warm. It also seals well just under the eyes, and I pulled it up over the ears of my Stratus Beanie to add warmth. Below 20 I had to put on a second hat as the Stratus was just thin, but the neck gaiter really helped extend the stratus’ cold weather abilities. Best Sitka product. Buy a backup for a friend.

If used PURELY as a neck gaiter, this thing works great and is super warm and soft. My frustration is that I like to be able to bring my neck gaiters up over my mouth and nose if it gets cold, but with this (while I CAN get it up over my face) it fits SUPER snug and is difficult to breath through, but not impossible. I will note, I have a big ol' honkin' head, and that probably is the biggest factor in this, but maybe either finding a way to allow a little elasticity and breathability to this would be awesome. Otherwise this an awesome piece. Don't get me wrong, it is still a great piece and I will still be using this on my hunts going forward.

I have four of these, was hoping for an upgraded effort this last time around. I believe these would be much better it there was an elastic component. It's a one size fits all and they can be very restrictive. The warmth component is great and they're an important part of my gear system but would be much more efficient and comfortable if they had some stretch to them. It would make a big difference on the long sits as well as during a spot and stalk.

Hands down the best neck gator on the planet. I have never really worn neck gators before until several years ago when I was on a late season deer hunt in CO and temps were well below freezing all day, every day. I can't even tell you the difference this neck gator made in keeping me warm. It not only keeps the cold air from coming inside your jacket, but you can pull it up over your face to stay nice and toasty warm. Since that time, I now wear this thing every time I go out hunting in the cold. Everything from duck hunting, deer or elk hunting and fishing, this piece of winter gear is ALWAYS in my pack. Even just driving around the UTV in the winter. Super warm, super comfortable and very well made. Just as you would expect from Sitka. Buy one and take along with you on your next cold weather adventure. The only regret you will have is wishing you would have bought one much sooner! You will not be disappointed.

This might just be my favorite piece of Sitka gear that I own. I own a lot of the waterfowl line including the Dakota, Gradient, and Grinder pieces as well as the Dakota Hat and Hudson Muff. I love this piece. I find when hunting when it’s really cold out the best way to stay warm is keeping everywhere warm, I have things to keep my head, hands, and feet warm but I always found I was losing a lot of heat through my neck/chin area. Long sits in the blind it the deer stand were chilly with more clothes on before I got this guy. I found it really keeps my entire body warm because I’m not losing heat anywhere and I can sit for so much longer. Most neck gaiters are super itchy when you have a beard. This one isn’t which makes it a game changer. This is a phenomenal piece and everyone needs one if they’re hunting anywhere below 30*. Much love from Northern Minnesota!

With that said, I found myself struggling to stay warm on my all day sits in WI. I finally purchased this gaiter and my lord it has been the best money I have spent. Seriously, it DOES NOT matter the temperature, this material will keep your face warm. You can pull it up to your eyes on those days where you are asking yourself why in the heck you aren't sitting by the fireplace, or you can wear it as a simple neck guard. If you are struggling to click that purchase button, just do it. From one cheapskate to another, this is worth the money. My last piece of advice for you is if you are thinking about wearing a lighter face mask underneath this neck gaiter.... don't. Maybe it is just me, but I have found that this neck gaiter performs best when it is unrestricted i.e. when it is touching your face.

This gaiter saved my 2018 Kansas deer hunt. The weather wasn’t supposed to be cold (40s-50s) when I was there. However as the weather does, it changed. The last few days the temps dropped into the 20s with a steady wind and snow. This piece kept me warm and in the stand, even dressed for temps 20-30 degrees warmer than they were. It’s amazing how much heat escapes through your head/neck area.

great "looking" item but I cannot get it over my head! I wear a 7 3/4 hat and I cannot even get over my melon. I wish it would, it looks warm but is a total waste of money for me.

This product is great for keeping your neck warm. In addition, you can pull it up over mouth and nose. Seemed like a bit of a frivolous purchase at the time, but I'm glad I had it.

A must have in the blind bag. It’s big enough to pull up over mouth and nose while you are checking the sky for birds. I hunted several days in single digits and was never cold.

This neck gaiter lives in my kit once the weather hovers around freezing. The inside fleece material is extremely soft next to skin and keeps my neck, ears and chin snug and warm as needed. This can be used with most any jacket/coat but I generally use it with the duck oven jacket, and a brimmed toque on top. This combination helps the duck oven hunt colder than it would normally would for me, and the neck gaiter keeps things warm while allowing great visibility and movement in the blind.

Very warm and keeps the heat inside and the cold out! Perfect hight/length, it allows for you to slip the majority of your face into the gaiter without it balling up like some of the others I have owned in the past. Easy purchase that keeps you warm. Won't go to the tree stand without it!

Wonderful piece of equipment to have on those cold days. Light weight and super warm! And if it does get wet, it dries fairly quickly. Would get full stars of it had a tapered design with the front longer and back shorter - a little bulky on the back of the neck, especially when paired with the Ballistic Beanie.

One of the most comfortable pieces of hunting gear I own. I wear a face mask and a beanie when I hunt and this fits in perfectly. Keeps my neck warm on those days when it's in the teens and single digits, but doesn't collect moisture. I'm really happy I got it for Christmas last year and highly recommend it if you hunt in cold areas.

The best performing neck gaiter I have ever worn, hands down. It is amazing how this neck gaiter does not condensate against your face like other thick fleece neck gaiters. Fits well, not too tight and it stays in place regardless if you are using it for a neck gaiter or neck gaiter/partial face mask. I can even pull the back of it up over my ponytail and it stays in place without restricting my movement. This neck gaiter is my go to for all cold weaher hunting.

This is one item that is always in my pack for cooler days. It’s amazing the amount of heat you lose through your neck and up from your core and chest. The gaiter is super soft and comfortable. Very thick and extremely warm. Adding just this piece can make the ditterence between a cold and miserable hunt to a warm and comfortable one. Highly recommended piece!

This thing is as warm as they come. Girlfriend got this as a Christmas present and it's absolutely awesome. I usually put it on for the boat ride in and out. I have to pull it down or take it off all together when putting out decoys or when setting up. Absolutely can't say enough nice things about this piece.

This thing is the bomb especially when driving a boat when its cold out. The fleece really helps break up the wind. I do prefer not to have this on when actually hunting however as it can be a tad bit bulky when trying to look around. I found myself constantly having to adjust my hat and or beanie one day this year while leaning up against the blind wall trying to peak up at the ducks, the bulk of this gaiter kept pushing the back of the beanie and or hat up on my head. It is what it is though, its made to be warm, I still Highly Recommend owning one of these.

This is the most comfortable gaiter I've ever owned and the only one I've ever put on that didn't pull my beard. I usually keep some stubble up to a short beard.

Wish I could give more stars! First off, let's start by saying extremely comfortable, very warm, and surprisingly windproof. Like in some of the other reviews, it is something to always have with you in cold weather. The thing that came to a surprise to me, was how breathable it was. For being as big as it is and have the fleece inside, I was able to hike miles upon miles with it over my face. In fact, it's so good, that sometimes it gets a little too hot. Which is nothing to complain about. Highly recommend this product to anybody in the low temperatures. Definitely buying more for different occasions!

This beast is warm as heck! I was actually TOO HOT on a mountain lion hunt wearing this thing. If you are on the move, take it off. If you are riding snowmobiles or quads in single-digit temps, just pull this thing on and you are all set! Keeping your neck warm is tough in the wind, but this is a great "necessity" for glassing, sitting in a duck blind or on stand during a rut hunt. As a Gore product tester I try to understand how pieces can work together to maximize function without adding bulk or redundant layers. Couple this with a Sitka Windstopper beanie and you have one heck of an option for cold weather hunts.

Following the Call: Honoring a Waterfowl Tradition

My love of the history and tradition of the American duck call goes way back. I was eight years old when my parents handed me an old shoe box of calls that had once belonged to my grandfather and his brother. The calls fascinated me, and it wasn’t long before I started my own vintage collection and began attending duck calling competitions. Eventually, I was spending what would become invaluable time with Butch Richenback at his Rich-N-Tone Duck Call shop here in Stuttgart, Arkansas, learning everything he had to teach me.
