I have had mine for the last eight years. It is made of the softest fleece that I have come across--warm and snuggley. It proved its worth for me on the frozen lakes of Minnesota. Far more practical that a scarf! Keeps your neck and lower face warm.
This thing is a great way to compensate for not liking a balaclava. It is super soft and cozy. It wicks sweat and moisture very well. The thing I have noticed lately is that it's shape does stretch out a little bit after several days consecutive use. After washing it resumes it's original shape.
