An engineering marvel, the BarriAire Ultra‑Light Neck Gaiter optimizes the weight-to-protection ratio. When every ounce counts, you'll only need one to achieve 96% particulate efficiency and 360° thermal protection with no melt or drip. DuPont Nomex® Nano Flex provides particulate blocking coverage across the face and front of neck while maintaining high breathability. Inherently good stretch and recovery, the fabrics offer superb moisture wicking for cool, dry wear and have a dual-technology antimicrobial treatment for unsurpassed odor control. Elasticized Comfort Plus binding encloses DuPont Kevlar® covered elastic with silicone stopper to ensure secure and comfortable fit. Adjustable, replaceable nose bridge establishes tight seal and minimizes fogging of eyewear. Lightweight and easy breathing, the BarriAire Ultra‑Light Neck Gaiter is the one ounce solution that fits in any pocket.
