Went on a hiking trip in the Stehekin valley in late September. I took along a daily tube sun mask in my daypack. I did not expect to use it; in fact, did not think I even liked it -- too tight, material was a little iffy although I liked the colors; however, one of the trip leaders wore something similar so I got mine out and put it on. It came in very handy particularly in the cold mornings. The tube scarf kept my neck warm and then my head as I pulled it up as far as I needed over my cap. And I could use it as a mask for covid restrictions if needed. The colors blended very well with everything I wore. I ended up using the tube 3 out of 4 days on the hikes and was grateful for the purchase. Machine washed and dried it when I got home and it came out as good as new.
