Right out of the package, WoolX's merino wool feels soft and silky. The company backs this up with a no-itch guarantee on all their garments. If you're not satisfied, just return it for a full refund. The 100% Australian Merino wool is doubled on this neck gaiter, making it great for winter activities. The company claims it can wick well, has non-chafe seams, and has superior warmth and comfort. It also can be thrown in the washer and dryer without any shrinkage.
I tested this product during a variety of winter activities that I participate in (cross country skiing, downhill skiing, ice climbing, snowshoeing, etc). I am in love with the cashmere feel of the wool on my skin.
I liked the double layer thickness because it felt that this gaiter, unlike my other winter weight ones, could cut the wind protecting my chin and neck for most activities.
When doing aerobic activities, I normally have to remove my neck gaitor after warming up. With WoolX, I could keep it on the entire outing which reduced the number of stops I had to make (or hold up a group for). The merino wool fabric does wick well and regulate your body temperature quite well.
I enjoyed the 10 inch length of the neck gaiter. On windy days, I could pull it up over my face quite easily.
Quality: I found the quality of WoolX's products to be superb. You won't be disappointed. This neck gaiter is now my new favourite and seems to be with me on all winter outings! I recently won a raffle at a ice climbing festival and the prize was a new WoolX neck gaiter. I was absolutely thrilled to have a second one in my quiver.
Cons: This product fit me perfectly. That said, I could see how larger necked people might feel that it is too tight. Maybe two sizes WoolX?
Best Uses: Skiing, snowshoeing, ice climbing, snowmobiling, other winter activities, etc
Full disclosure: I was provided this neck gaitor from WoolX to test and review. The opinions expressed are completely my own.
