Brisk Run Neck Warmer
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.

This is perfect for those winter runs! When you start running, you can cover your head and neck, keeps both of them warm. Once you start warming up, you can bring it down to you neck. Love it!!

Love this thing! It is warm and cute enough to wear even when not running, like while walking miles across campus on Illinois' icy prairie. I'm gonna gush a lot about this because it's a seriously good investment for cold weather runners.
Technically, this design is phenomenal. There is a little excess material, but that helps it to feel complete & practical (and to stay put!) as a hood/ninja mask/ear cover. It even looks cute scrunched when the drawcords are tied together. They stay in place well that way or knotted alone. My only suggestion for the drawcord is that if enough reviews pop up having an issue with it slipping, maybe the lulu design team could consider using a more grippy material than the standard drawcord stuff? Either way, mine has worked perfectly thus far.
The balanced warmth is unbeatable. It doesn't get over-hot or clammy like my UnderArmour turtleneck does when I sweat--and I sweat a lot on runs--and it blocks that air space between my neck & jacket so I'm not chilled. Should I need to, I can remove it and tie it around my wrist or stick it in a pocket. The thing even works as a headband and the super soft rulu stays put in my hair and keeps my ears cozy. It is a little tight, but that's OK.
I have taken my neckwarmer on runs of about 30 minutes in 5-25 degree F temperatures in pretty high wind and it's performed awesomely. The mint is a lovely color and I don't regret that I didn't purchase the blue when it was on sale.
I consider this the second best lulu purchase I have ever made, behind the *original* scuba hoodie (please sir, I want some more). Thank you design team for this wonderful, excellently made, high performance run scarf!! PLEASE keep little miracles like this coming :)

LOVE LOVE LOVE
The brisk run neck warmer has been the perfect edition to my running gear. I love how warm and toasty my neck stays during a run and how I can pull the neck warmer up over my face in extremely cold temps. So happy to have this!

Perfect Accessory for Freezing Temperature Runs
For the past few weeks, I've had an issue with keeping my neck warm during my mid-day runs. I had my head band, gloves, and other cold weather gear but could not find a COMFORTABLE running scarf of some sort. After purchasing the Brisk Run Neck Warmer, my search is officially over! I had heard about how awesome this product was but did not truly believe it until I used it. The material is lightweight and comfortable. It did not rub or have uncomfortable seams that can be a pain. It kept my neck dry (yeah, I'm a "sweater") and extremely warm. The best part is that it can also be converted into a hood if the mood or weather makes it necessary.
If you are looking for a solution to the nuisance of having a cold decolletage while running, this neck warmer is for you!

2nd neckwarmer not like the 1st
OK-like this black neckwarmer, but it is twice a big as the 1st one I bought mths ago. Actually bought this one because of how much I loved my striped one. The material is thicker-does not feel as light or even fit the same . Why change a good thing that worked? I love my lululemon and buy a lot from stores and mail order, but not happy with the new neckwarmer. Will use it, because I am not going to spend money to return item, but please stay with something, keep it the same, when it works!
