Price Paid: $21.99

This is awesome. It is microfleece on your neck and back of head (feels so soft and cozy!), and neoprene in-lined with fleece on face and ears(flexible and warm, good against wind, also soft and cozy).

I have a small and it fits very well (I'm 5'7", 135 lb female), and the Velcro stick-together in back ensures a customized fit to your face no matter what your shape. The velcro isn't annoying at all, and makes it very easy to put on without hassle (personally, I like that it keeps my hair in place without wrecking it while putting it on :-). The microfleece goes to the base of my neck keeping it very warm (like a good scarf, without the bulk).

The neoprene/fleece face part is shaped so that my goggles can fit over it leaving nothing exposed. It also covers to the tip of my ears, which is very nice. The nose part is open downward, so you can breathe easily, but your nose is still covered to the tip.

The mouth has a rectangle of 3x4 holes for breathing. You can tell that you aren't breathing freely, but it was never a problem; I snowboard and snowmachine, and between hitting the slopes and getting stuck in that powder, I could breathe fine. It's great at blocking cold wind, and it fits pretty flush with your head, so it's easy to wear under any type of helmet.

I would recommend this product, it is awesome.

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

The Gator Duo combines the warmth and comfort of fleece lined neoprene across the cheeks and nose with the softness and insulation of microfleece on the throat and back of the neck. The Duo gives more protection for the throat than the Face Protector.
