Neck Socks, or Neck Gaiters have long been popular with outdoor enthusiasts, who appreciate the surprising versatility of a simple tube of fabric. 

Once seen mostly on ski slopes or hiking trails, neck gaiters are now totally mainstream as people use them to cover up and discover their unique benefits in the outdoors. 

So, what is a neck gaiter?

At their simplest, neck gaiters are tubes of fabric worn around the neck that are multi-functional for both warm and cold weather activities. Traditionally they have served as neck warmers for skiing, but as we will explore, they have a variety of other uses depending on how you choose to wear them, and modern fabrics make them perfect for all weather conditions.

Neck gaiters are made from different types of synthetic fabrics that can either keep your neck and head cool in warmer weather, or warm when it’s cold out. They also offer protection against:

  • Sun
  • Wind
  • Snow and rain
  • Moisture (Synthetic fabrics usually have moisture-wicking properties that keep sweat off the skin)
  • Heat (Warm weather neck gaiters dry quickly and can be dipped in water to provide additional cooling)

When you consider that a single neck gaiter can also be worn a dozen different ways, from a beanie to a hair tie, and is compact enough to keep on hand (or in a pocket) at all times, it’s no wonder that neck gaiters have such a dedicated following! They are the perfect travelling companion!

These Neck Socks are handmade in Brisbane on onboard the Yacht of their maker, Charlotte Waterman, an ocean enthusiast! She started making them for friends and other boaties, and eventually demand became so big, she decided to start up production and get them into shops! They can now be found all along the East coast of Australia, but are still all sewn in small batches by her!
