Did you know the active apparel category is worth over $48 billion and continues to grow every year in the United States? Today we’re introducing a new product that will help you tap into this massive market—neck gaiters! Not only do neck gaiters look cool, but they’re useful too! These scarf + bandana hybrids are designed to keep you comfortable in extreme temperatures, protect from sunburns, and prevent debris from going into your face. People who wear neck gaiters are typically also into extreme sports, outdoor recreation (fishing, hunting, hiking, etc.), biking, and gaming. Try designing this product with these characteristics in mind!
Neck gaiters are designed to protect against many of nature’s elements. They cover the entire front of the face (nose, mouth, chin, and neck), however they are not medical grade products. Please reference the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) for recommendations on the best types of face coverings to use for self-protection.
