Windblocking Arctic Thermal Straight Neck Gaiter:

 

We build these neck gaiters in two different sizes and we also build them in larger length and width dimensions then the "status quo" competition in the global marketplace.  We uniquely build in a top edge shock cord that allows you to tighten it and lock it to any position on your face.  The 2 layer system blocks 100% of the wind on the outside, while the inner layer has superior heavyweight technical fleece warmth.  This neck gaiter will also NOT FREEZE UP from your breath moisture and it allows you to always breathe warm air when over the nose.  Click for more information>>>>>

 

Note:  If you're running the Quest or Iditarod for the first time, don't be like everyone else and carry on the tradition of listing on your website that you "will need 18 to 22 fleece neck gaiters for the big race"!  With our Technical Advantage Gear neck gaiters as they are built with at least a 2 Layer design that never leaves you with "frozen mush face", at minimum you'll only need (1) one for the entire race, yes only one.  If you're strategic in your thinking, you'll buy (2) two of them, so that you can pack one ahead in one of your checkpoint gear bags as a back up, or just store it in your sled bag so that you always have the spare with you.  We would recommend one of our Drop Pad Neck Gaiters for the extreme temperature days where you need to seal out the maximum amount of the cold face biting air and you need extra warmth and protection for both the face, neck and upper chest core and then a straight neck gaiter for the more tropical days of the race when the winds still blow and you still need neck and face protection.  Overall you will save money, packing space and best of all you will have a face with minimized frostbite, assuming you keep your face covered with one of our neck gaiters.

Windblocking Arctic Thermal Drop Pad Neck Gaiter:

 

    

Our Technical Advantage Gear "Drop Pad Neck Gaiter" is an ORIGINAL design and is exclusive to our product line only.  In other words, you can't buy it anywhere else in the World unless someone has copied our exclusive design.  Two drop pads, one front and one in the back that have been configured to keep your upper chest core warm on the front, while sealing the air flow completely out on the back of your neck.  The drop pads can be reversed or turned around your neck, whereby the front becomes the back and the back the front.

The top edge of the Drop Pad Gaiter also comes with a built in shock cord, that can be tightened to keep it in the exact position on your face that is desired.  The mainstay of this unit is built with a 2 layer technical fabric system, with the exception that the drop pads also contain a 3rd internal layer of special polyester insulating material.  Windblocking 100%, breathable, water resistant on the outside, matched with a heavyweight technical fleece on the inside and generously sized, all combine for another warm and frost free face.  Click here for more information>>>>>

 

Note:  If you are running the Quest or Iditarod for the first time, have limited funds and are expecting limited donations to your cause as well, then do yourself a favor and purchase one of our Technical Advantage Gear Windblocking Arctic Thermal Drop Pad Neck Gaiters, as IT IS THE ONLY NECK GAITER THAT YOU WILL NEED FOR THE ENTIRE RACE!  You don't need to waste your time and money on buying 18 to 22 straight cut cheap fleece neck gaiters that "are not" going to block out the face cutting winds and are only going to end up freezing and sagging down on your face, leaving you with frostbite, when you can buy one of our Drop Pad Neck Gaiters that will give you more total asset value then anything else that exists on the planet.  Some mushers buy (2) two of these for the big endurance races, however after they cross the finish line you generally find out that they wore the same one for the entire race, yet they were smart enough to have a back-up in case they broke through the ice or lost the initial one some how.  The Drop Pad Neck Gaiters are as critical to have and wear during your big race, as are a good pair of mittens for keeping your hands warm.  So be smart and break the traditional mold of posting on your website that you need donations of or money for 18 to 22 cheapie straight cut fleece neck gaiters that just aren't going to be effective.

Extreme Element Arctic Thermal Mitts- Hardfaced Outer Shell Layer

    

We designed and cut the patterns for the size Medium Mitts especially for our base of Female Sled Dog Musher customers, the size Large & X-Large for the guys, however these mitt's are not just limited to mushing. These mitts are built using 12 total layers (6 top/6 bottom) and still pack a second to no one thermal insulation value of R-9.3.  The outer shell layer is a technical fabric that has a hardfaced, yet fairly soft to the touch finish, which will further enhance abrasion resistance and we've incorporated "hook/loop "wing loc's" at the mitten ends so you can further seal out the elements.  The outer shell provides thermal windblocking, is DWR water repellent and has very good moisture vapor breathability.  The second layer in, provides "Certified 100% thermal windblocking protection", so no cold air penetrates the inner core.  These mittens also provide the highest level in the World of thermal moisture wicking and transfer and no one else, any where even comes close to this benchmark!  To learn more about these great mitts.
