Neck Gaiters

Neck Gaiter from Rayward Apparel

A high quality sun protection neck gaiter is one of the most versatile outdoor accessories you’ll ever own. Our Del Mar UPF 50+ neck gaiter is soft, breathable and lightweight for all-day UV protection. Plus, this stretchable, tag-free and versatile multi-functional headwear can be worn more than a dozen ways! This includes being worn as a UV protection face mask, beanie, bandana, hood and more.* Whether you are looking for a fishing neck gaiter, soakable headwear for cooling off, or a reliable sun protective bandana to keep your neck protected, you’ve come to the right place!

What is a Neck Gaiter?

Neck gaiters have had a lot of different names over the years. These include: fishing neck gaiter, tube bandana, fishing buff, sun protection face mask, and many more. Despite the long list of names, these are all effectively designed for the same thing: UV protection for you head, face and/or neck, depending how you wear it. While most neck gaiters and head buffs are designed to be lightweight and stretchy, the best ones are also constructed with fabrics that prevent UV penetration and keep your skin protected from sunburn and harmful UV damage. Continue below to preview the advantages offered by Rayward Apparel’s Del Mar UPF 50+ Neck Gaiter:

We carefully chose our Del Mar neck gaiter’s dimensions to balance protection, performance and fit. Its 16” length makes possible all of the wearable styles described here, while not burdening wearers with excess fabric and weight. Any longer would leave too much fabric for your neck, but any shorter and certain headwear styles would no longer be possible, including the popular balaclava style. The 9.5” width is equally intentional, as this determines how well the neck gaiter fits around your head and neck. This tube width, paired with the fabric’s inherent flexibility and stretch traits, provides a secure, but unrestrictive fit.

Our neck gaiters are available in a variety of colors. The darker color options feature the Rayward Apparel logo in a contrasting gray color near the top of the tube, while the lighter color variations have that same logo but in a contrasting black color. While wearing it, we recommend having the discreet seam run down the back of your head which puts the logo off to the side of your face, as demonstrated in the photo above.

Since all of Rayward Apparel’s products are certified for UV protection, the color is purely a matter of personal preference and has no impact on the UV protection provided. As a result, our black Del Mar neck gaiter is just as protective as the pink Del Mar neck gaiter, and so forth. Regardless of the color, all of our Del Mar neck gaiters are certified at the maximum level of UV protection, UPF 50+. This excellent level of UV protection is achieved primarily through the fabric design and construction, as opposed to the color.
