NXN's Merino Wool Handkerchief provides insulation and weather-resistance when it really counts. This lightweight addition to your backcountry setup provides sun protection, moisture-wicking properties and it's guaranteed for life! Compared to competitive products, it's affordable and less scratchy. So you can reap all of the benefits of the merino without the headache.

If you're a survivalist, you probably like to collect versatile gear. The NXN Merino Wool Handkerchief is both adjustable and versatile. It's somewhat weather-proof and it dries quickly. I love that it offers a new take on sun-protection. Being temperature regulating, you can use it in warm or cold temperatures without issue. 


  • USPF 45+
  • Non-Flammable
  • Quick-drying
  • Machine washable

Durability: One great feature is that the Merino Wool Handkerchief holds up against tons of use and sun exposure. While the dyes are likely to fade after consistent use, the quality and reliability will last for a long time. 

Backcountry Testing: After a significant amount of use in Colorado's backcountry, I was surprised to find myself using this product as a handkerchief. I covered my neck as a way to both insulate myself and protect myself against the sun. And that's not something I usually do. But I was pleased with the results.

Final Thoughts: Whether you're looking for a fun piece of gear or you're hoping to find a versatile product, the NXN Merino Wool Handkerchief fits the mold. While it doesn't seem totally essential to me, it does offer a unique tool to use against the forces of nature.
