Merino

The neck gaiter made of Merino wool is suitable for all seasons because it keeps you warm in the winter and cools you down in the summer. Smart fibres woven into Merino neck gaiter have a self-cleaning capacity that inhibits the growth of bacteria and keeps the fabric clean and free from odour. The fibres absorb more than 35% of its own weight in moisture thus leaving the skin dry. Merino fibres are gentle and so fine that they are below itching threshold. Unique softness also provides for a comfortable flowing fit. Together with its certified exchangeable nano filters, it constitutes, unlike common face masks, a safe, durable health accessory where the Merino fibres structure inhibits bacteria growth and its core quality absorbs moisture and eliminates odour. We only use mulesing-free Merino wool from accredited farms.

Neck gaiters made from Merino wool are suitable for every day wear.

Coolmax

COOLMAX® freshFX® fibre technology is designed to keep you cool and dry and to help garments stay fresher for longer. Engineered fibres move moisture and dry quickly, creating a cooling effect, whilst spun-in additives provide long-lasting freshness.

The antibacterial environment is a clear gamechanger: unlike ordinary face masks, Purtana gives no quarter to bacteria growth.

Nano membrane

Two fully breathable layers of non-woven fabric serve as two shields protecting a nano-fibre membrane that is effective enough to stop viruses, allergens, bacteria, droplets and dust particles from penetrating into the respiratory tract.

Bacteriostatic effect

Polypropylene fibre is like a jewel studded with ions of silver that grant unique qualities. In fact, silver ions inhibit the growth of bacteria and constitute a long-lasting hygienically safe space.

Breathability of the fabric

The fibre itself is delicate, non-irritating to the skin and hypoallergenic. It is non-absorbent. Therefore, all moisture is wicked away from the skin and drawn towards the surface. From there it evaporates into the air, and a stable thermic environment is achieved throughout the fabric.

Before you wash your gaiter, dispose of the used filter.

Our recommendation is to avoid a spin-dryer to make the nose clip last longer. The warranty does not apply to physical damage and overuse of the nose clip. Its mechanical damage is not covered by the warranty.

It is possible to take the nose clip out of the gaiter and use a regular warm water washing cycle at 40 degrees Celsius (104 Fahrenheit).
