Product Overview

A lot of neck gaiters claim to be fast-drying.

Ours only takes one second on the skin side to dry.

You heard that correctly. One second. Just imagine how our Performance Face Shield is going to not only protect your face and neck, but also feel cool or warm since it won't stay soggy against your skin. If your face shield gets wet, simply remove it and shake it vigorously for a few moments. The skin side of this special Dry-Zone® fabric will dry immediately. Other fabrics can take between one and three hours to dry. Who has that kind of time? You want to be comfortable now. The harsh conditions you encounter on and around the water are adapted to instantly. Damaging UV rays, bugs, cold and stifling heat are no problem for this ultra lightweight, high performance, moisture-wicking, breathable face shield. With its 50 UPF (ultraviolet protection factor) sun protection, you'll be able to stay out all day without having to apply messy sunscreen. The form-fitting comfort stretch fabric also has anti-bacterial properties for even greater safety and protection for your face. 92% polyester/8% Spandex. Imported.
