Big skies are a Western constant, and my whole family loves stargazing and watching out for shooting stars during the Perseid Meteor shower every August. The lines from one of my favorite Pablo Neruda sonnets (XLVI) inspired this pattern:
“Of all the stars I admired, drenched
in various rivers and mists,
I chose only the one I love,
Since then I sleep with the night.”
So this pattern comes with a bit of poetry attached. Stars and poetry make a pleasing combination.
Our lightweight dark blue star pattern gaiter is the perfect multi-purpose tool for outdoor recreation: it can be worn as a face covering, bandana, balaclava, helmet liner, headband, hair tie, or scarf. It keeps you warm in the winter and cool in the summer, blocking wind, dust, bugs, sweat, and more than 90% of UV rays, protecting you from the harsh sun. The gaiter can be worn dry, wicking away moisture, or damp, to provide relief from the heat. Weighing in at only one ounce, it packs down easily to fit in your pocket or a bag.
