Anybody rock a neck gaiter that works?

I bought a couple OT Yowie's, the UA cold gear mask, the Coal Knit Balaclava, but I just want something to put around my neck that doesnt bunch up and keeps it warm. Any ideas?

Everything will bunch some, unless you raid Steve Jobs wardrobe and snag some turtle necks. That said, I have a Phunkshun 2L tube and a Celtek Payson for the hot days. I wear the Phunkshun for warmth and cause I don't like sunscreen on my neck. Which is why I also have the Celtek. Cause it's not warm, but still covers my neck.

I use a Smartwool neck gaiter. It bunches some but insulates well.

Beats that turtle fur I used to ride with.

Buff®Sports | Original Buff® | Skiing

I wear a Buff. They're really breathable and keep you relatively warm. For REALLY cold days I'd get something else. They're thin enough so you can pull the buff up over the bridge of your nose and pull your goggles down over that so you're fully covered. You don't feel suffocated and your goggles won't fog up. Great for days when its snowing and you're getting facialed by flakes.

They're really dynamic too - I turn mine into a beanie when I job outside in the winter.

Cool colors/designs, cheap and super functional. Highly recommended.

unfortunately my facial hair growing skills are quite inadequate. i've been looking into the buff's, but the picture's make them look really thin, similar to OT's Yowie which i didn't like at all.

I saw this one last week at the local shop:
Spacecraft Collective - Mens - Details - Thermostat

The top part was thinner for breathability and the bottom was thicker for warmth
