Shelta Face Gaiter

Shelta Face Gaiter


Our Face Gaiter protects your face and neck from harmful UV rays. Sun protection that won’t wear off, it allows you to spend the whole day on the water or in the field without burning. Made from lightweight, moisture wicking stretch fabric, our gaiter features silicone coated laser-cut breathing holes.  The breathable fabric offers UPF 50+ UV protection and covers the top of your nose down to your neckline with enough height in the back to fit over a cap or under your sunhat. A sun hat should be just one component of your sun protection strategy when spending a full day under the sun.  UV rays reflect from most surfaces, including water, which has around a 50% reflection rate. Comes with a handy re-usable storage pouch!

Best there is - Unfortunately I wear glasses so all other buffs cause them to fog up which forces me to pull the buff down. As a result my nose and upper face gets burned regardless of how many times I reapply sunscreen. This gaiter solves this problem, is comfortable, lightweight and is a must have if you are going to spend extended periods of time on the water.
