Striker UV Neck Gaiter

Updated: Jun 17, 2019

Sunscreen can be messy, oily, foul-smelling and downright uncomfortable at times and in my mind, every minute spent putting sunscreen on is a series of casts less than what could have been made to catch a fish of a lifetime. As some might say, "ain't nobody got time for that". I have really come to appreciate the comfort and dependability of the new UV Neck Gaiter by Striker for more reasons than one.

Comfort - Personally, I have tried several different company claimed "UV" face masks without much success in finding one that doesn't get too hot, itchy or doesn't fall off my face when making a run across the body of water. I can FINALLY and with confidence say that the Striker UV Neck Gaiter is the first product I have trialed that fixes these common issues! The laser cut breathing holes prevents moisture build up and allows hot air to escape, while the polyester/spandex blended material fits comfortably to your form, all while protecting your skin with UPF 50+ sun protection. Not once did I feel sunscreen was necessary on a recent four day Lake of the Woods trip when wearing this garment.



Ease of Use - Slip it on, slip it off. The how-to of a face shield is self explanatory, but for the simple fact that I was able to get the extra cast in by not stopping to put sunscreen on, that's what made this product so easy for me to choose. I can fish harder, longer and more comfortably than ever before and credit much of it to the Striker UV Neck Gaiter.
