Thumbs up Neck gaiters.

I mentioned earlier that I had lost my neck comforter/gaiter and someone kindly provided the URL to Helmut's webpage so I could get a replacement from him. I ordered several for gifting. Ordered 'em on Friday (they're in CA) and got 'em on Monday (here in TX). Good customer service wuz evidenced in some e-mail exchanges with Linda, and delivery wuz much better than expected.

No affiliation with Helimot, other than being a very satisfied customer. Love these thangs!!

Well, not Ed Zachery, Hans. They do the thongs in Hot Fire Pink, Royal Metallic Ruby, Avocado Slice Green, and Lo-Viz Yellow. I couldn't decide which match-up Grif would be happiest with, so I just pooh-poohed the thong thangs! He can do his own stylin' gig with the hunnert dollar coupon I got!!!

Re: Neck gaiters.

Does anyone recall the source of a similar item that is made out of stretchy material and is designed primarily a head gear (dew rag) but acts as a great neck warmer as well. Lost mine in Morocco!

It is sold on a cardboard form at most rallys and shows a dozen or so wearing options.

Great site. I ordered a neck hugger from them also. I'm always misplacing my accessories.

I like their glove liners, also. Made of polypropolene--so they dry when wet, FAST. The best for the rain and snow.
