Gear Review: Smartwool Neck Gaiter

A cozy cocoon for your neck and face

SmartWool’s cozy Neck Gaiter will make you ditch your old fleece one. Why? It’s thinner so it has more seasonal versatility, and it’s less bulky under jacket collars. Plus, thanks to its tight weave, it cuts the wind better, and wool won’t get smelly. $25; 2 oz.; smartwool.com
