RECOMMENDATION: Neck Gaiter

Hello, I need a neck gaiter for winter/cold weather cycling that I can still breath through. I have one for walking but it is too thick and is useless for cycling because I cannot get enough air through it to breath when I am cycling.

Thank you,

C

Bikes are okay, I guess.

A polypropylene balaclava is light and thin, easy to breathe through, but it's a full head cover that you might not want. I also have thicker fleece neck-only one but not quite as easy to breathe through.

Smartwool makes a nice one that can be used as single layer or doubled or triple folded depending on how much air flow one wants.

I bought a Smart Wool that covers only my neck. When it gets cold enought for that, I'll wear a balaclava , the bottom of which I pull over the top of the neck gaiter. That keeps the cold air away from my neck and chest.

It gets cold in Louisiana? Cold enough to wear a balaclava
