8 years after using all over the world in super cold temps and giving it all sorts of abuse it is still getting packed every time i travel… and finally i am writing a review… yup it works great and I love it.

Absolutely wonderful

Hey everyone I’m from Chicago Illinois and it gets COLD up here.

Currently it’s been around ( - 5 to 10 F ) avg 10-15 mph wind occasional 30 mph GUSTS and I’ve been wearing this non stop it keeps me completely warm.
It’s soft, easy to care for, wash dry etc, very good insulation, comfortable, lightweight, easy to pack. Overall great bang for your buck.
When you’re inside you don’t feel it overheating and it isn’t overbearing you because it regulates your temperature amazingly well.
If I’m outside for long periods
ex 1hr hrs and I’m talking, it begins to frost near my mouth, due to the heat— vapor—and the cold immediately freezing it — thats the only drawback. (Even so it still is warm)
Other than that, it’s amazing.

Healthy and physically fit I recommend this product!

Yushu fabric blend is truly awesome, but the neck gaiter had drawbacks

First, let me be clear, Kora products and their mission are great! I will continue to be a customer for years to come and recommend them to others. I have a few other products from them which I love! However, this neck gaiter just missed the mark for me. It was quite snug and tight, and I don't believe I have a larger face by any means, as I am an average build, 5'10'' guy. It also seemed a bit on the short side (overall length), compared to a few other neck gaiters I have had experience with. It also had very little to no stretch to it, which I can understand if its due to the fabrics used but I thought it would have just a bit of a stretchiness. The fabric comfort and weight along with simple designs are great! But I would really love Kora to redesign this product to hopefully make it truly an all-around great product.

Great neck gaiter

Soft and warm and doesn’t freeze when you breath on it. Will be purchasing another

I was hoping for more...

I absolutely LOVE kora as a brand and have left several raving 5 star reviews, but I can't give this gaiter the same love.

The fabric is great, as expected and it feels very nice. It also looks great, but for me, it's small and tight around my neck and face.

Maybe it will "expand" some as I wear it more? Not sure. We'll see.

I wear a ton of gaiters while skiing or just around town in Ski Country. I often wear them on my head, as an "open" hat, and this may be how I choose to wear my new Yushu Neck Gaiter, as it fits as a gaiter hat perfectly.

BUT, my biggest issue is the price. I realize kora is an expensive brand. And I also realize that you get what you pay for, but at $50, I was expecting more, especially in terms of the overall size of it.

I'm still a HUGE kora fan, but it's highly unlikely I'll be buying another kora gaiter.
