Brisk Run Neck Warmer
I bought this to keep me warm but not overheated while I'm at work. My job involves lots of different environments (in and out of a vehicle and buildings) and a moderate amount of physical work (I'm a paramedic) and I always have trouble regulating my temperature in the winter, I'm always freezing or really overheated and sweating.
This neck warmer is perfect! Keeps me warm and insulated but also wicks moisture and doesn't get in my way like a scarf would. It's nice and long and soft and bunches up, which is functional and looks cute. I bought the black/stripe and it blends in perfectly with my dark uniform shirt. I've only had it a coupl of days and have gotten a bunch of compliments on it from girls (and a few guys) that I work with. I'm considering getting another colour to wear when I'm not at work. I looked at a few different brands and styles before I picked this up and I think it's pretty reasonably priced, considering the design and quality of the material.

Perfect Running Accessory
These are fantastic! super soft, small, and they add warmth to the neck, chin, or can act as a hat if you need. Love the colours lately! Surge! Pique! I can't get enough of these.

First outerware purchase
I bought the mini hyper stripe black/black and I love it!!!! Wore it the day it came in the mail (which was just yesterday) to my child's riding lessons and it was very warm/comfy in this cold Ottawa weather! I have nothing bad to say about it! Guilt free purchase!

Great Athletic Accessory
I teach figure skating, and this has proven to be one of my favorite Lulu purchases. I can put the neck-warmer on and tighten the drawcord and go. I don't have to worry about re-adjusting a traditional scarf or having something flapping around when I'm skating with my students.

toasty and comfy
i wear this on cold days at work (i work outside). it is great because unlike a scarf, i don't need to worry about it unravelling and having to readjust it all the time. combined with an earflap hat, it keeps the wind off my neck and bottom half of my face (if i pull it up) even at -10 or -15C windchills. if i forget to put on my hat, i can pull the neckwarmer over my head in a snap. it is also lightweight and comfortable enough that i can wear it when i am driving. i have the black one and the yellow/blue.

Awesome Neck Warmer!
I picked up this neck warmer in mint last week in the WMTM. I wore it skiing today in 14 degree weather... and it kept me so warm! I was able to put it up over my nose and tighten it, which was awesome. Would definitely recommend!

I have been wanting one of these for a few months and finally purchased one when the mint moment showed up in WMTM last week. Material is very soft and it kept me warm (but not overly toasty) when the weather is cold and windy. I have also tried wearing this as a headband/ear-warmer so it saved me money to not have to buy a separate headband. I took off 1 star because the width is not wide enough to cover any slightly wider neckline. I was wearing it with my runder under ls and the neckline is definitely way too big for this neckwarmer. Other than that, I think this is a great purchase, especially at the marked down price :)

Must have neck warmer
Absolutely love this brisk run neck warmer. Not only is it cozy, warm, breathable, it is super soft. I wear it all the time. Need to get another. I now prefer to wear it instead of scarves. I am not a runner, but love wearing it for hiking, to and from work and in the house when I am feeling cold. Today didn't even realize I had not taken it off after a long hike until I went to get changed for bed. Hope it will be available next year in more colors.

Awesome neck warmer, even for non-runners
I bought this because I needed something that would keep my neck and face warm in the frigid Ottawa winter (-40C with windchill at times), but without the bulk and hassle of a wool scarf. This neck warmer fits the bill perfectly! As others have noted, it keeps you warm without overheating and it's versatile enough to use as a hood if needed. The moisture-wicking properties of the rulu live up to their promise; I don't get frost condensation from my breath, unlike what always happens with wool scarves and the fabric is super soft. Sometimes I wear one around the house just because it's so cozy and comfortable. The price is pretty reasonable given the quality of this product. I have two of them and want to get more.
Even as someone who is a non-runner, I can highly recommend this item as an essential winter accessory.
