How does the Simms Stretch Neck Gaiter work?

Pretty simple, really. You pull it over your head and it sits round your neck like a soft, stretchy collar. You can either leave it down to keep your neck warm, or you can pull it up over your face and ears to keep them warm when it's really cold.

Does it stay up?

Yep. It's made from a very warm, mixture of soft and elastic nylon, polyester and spandex. This keeps it firmly wrapped around your face without squashing you and it rarely slips down. The Simms Stretch Neck Gaiter is also anatomically shaped so it goes around your mouth and chin more smoothly.

Doesn't condensation build up inside?

No, there are lots of tiny holes in the front of the Simms Stretch Neck Gaiter that allow you to breathe without the condensation from your breath building up inside and making the gaiter too damp.

How warm is the Simms Neck Gaiter?

It's very warm and very comfortable to wear. The fabric is fairly windproof which keeps out the cold, and the material feels warm against the skin.

It does a good job of keeping your face and neck warm when the wind is biting cold, particularly when teamed up with a good hat. If you get too hot, just pull it down.

How stupid does it look?

To be honest, it probably wouldn't be a good idea to walk into a bank wearing one. But on the bank, when it's freezing cold, raining and your mouth is chattering from the extreme cold, who cares what it looks like? It will keep you warm and it's fairly understated, so you won't look like a total pilchard.

How much is it?

The Simms Stretch Neck Gaiter costs about £21.99, which is a reasonable amount, but it's really nice quality and it keeps you really warm, which means you can stay out in the cold fishing for longer than you could without one. And that means you can catch more fish.
