UV Face Shields & Neck Gaiters
UV neck gaiters and face shields are sun-safe accessories designed to protect your face and neck from exposure to the sun and cold. Often referred to as UV face shields, neck shields, face gaiters, gaiter masks, and face gaiters, these simple yet effective sun-safe accessories can be worn to protect your face and neck from the sun’s harmful UV rays.

Our men’s and women’s bamboo face shields and neck gaiters are perfect for anyone looking for a grab-and-go covering they can take anywhere and use anytime.

UV Face Shield and UV Neck Gaiters Aren’t Just for Hot, Sunny Days
Contrary to popular belief, you can still fall victim to sun overexposure during the winter. In fact, sand, water, and snow can reflect up to 80% of the sun’s harmful UV rays back towards your skin, meaning your summer neck gaiter is also a great addition to your winter apparel. Aside from just protecting your skin from the sun during the summertime, neck gaiters will also protect your neck and face from cold winds and the elements when snowboarding, skiing, or enjoying the snow, making them an excellent choice for UV neck and face protection any time of year.
