The North Face Ear Gear

If chilly winter headwinds leave you with a headache while running or Nordic skiing, you'll appreciate the thermal warmth of this fleece Ear Gear headband from The North Face. It's made from midweight Polartec 200 Series fleece with a stretchy Lycra spandex binding for a close fit. Ear Gear offers some distinct advantages to traditional knit caps and outerwear headwear: It offers better venting through your hair and in some situations minimizes that annoying "hat hair" phenomena frequently observed--or intentionally overlooked--in coffee shops and ski area day lodges. Depending on the fit, you can sometimes layer this fleece headband beneath a skiing, cycling or snowboarding helmet, too. The North Face designed their Ear Gear to be lightweight and easy to stow in a small pack, messenger bag or handbag, so it's a perfect portable winter essential for commutes, day hikes and frigid business trips.

  • Fabric: Polartec® 200 Series midweight fleece made from recycled materials
  • Lycra® spandex binding helps keep headband from slipping and improves overall fit
  • Warm fabric dries quickly with minimal care
  • Lightweight and stowable design

Good product
I am using the ear gear for my 6 am hikes. The fleece is warm and comfortable. It's not constricting on my head. I can stash it easily in my pocked when the hike starts becoming warm.

Comfy and stylish ear gear!
I love the looks of this ear gear I bought for my teenager. It was a great price on Altrec. This site is easy to navigate and quick to ship. I received this in less than a week. Glad I found this site.

Meets all the criteria
These are the favorite ear gear of my 2 granddaughters. They love the softness, warmth and style. This year I bought new colors to match their outerwear. I can feel confident they will not freeze their ears! These make a great St Nick gift or a stocking stuffer.

Very good purchase
I've used the ear gear for about 3 weeks now. Pros: Find it very useful while going out for a small walk or even at home while doing stretching exercises (replaces my head band). It fits really well, looks pretty and is warm and comfy. Cons: I cannot wear it for too long (~2.5 hr max), after which it starts to feel a little unfomfy, specially so when I'm wearing specs (eye glasses) as it feels a little tight around the ears after some time.
