The Weatherneck is made from stretchy double knit spandex fabric sourced in the USA and sewn in Wisconsin. The front center strip is made from thinner mesh fabric, making breathing easier. The magnet closure in the back makes it possible to wear the Weatherneck tightly or loosely fitted around your face or neck, depending on the temperature and activity. While it is not designed to be a particle blocker, I bet it would help a lot in dusty or buggy environments.
The Weatherneck is easy to take care of by rinsing it out in the sink or shower. Machine washing is not recommended since the magnets will make it stick to the walls of your machine.
From the Kickstarter Website:
The Weatherneck design improves face shields and neck cuffs by utilizing powerful magnets and superior USA made fabrics to:
– Allow for immediate removal (magnets)
– Provide a superior one-size-fits-all design (see diagram below), this also allows a loose or tight fit depending on conditions.
– Manage moisture build up, allow easy ventilation and block wind without excessive bulk
– Allow quiet removal/application in noise sensitive environments*
