Neck gaiters or balaclavas come in handy in the summer months when you’re out riding or fishing since they protect you from sunburns, but they’ll also come in handy during fall and winter months. Whether you’re motorcycling, snowboarding, or hiking, you’ll want a cold weather face mask to keep you warm and protected from aggressive wind and cold temperatures.

These breathable face coverings will make riding your motorcycles or outdoor activities much more enjoyable. Cold air doesn’t feel good when it’s 20 degrees Fahrenheit out and it’s extremely windy. Plus, with the Coronavirus pandemic, you’ll want to keep those ears covered. You wouldn’t want to mistake a common cold or chills with COVID-19.
