Nekkr for deep snow riding

I’m not sure what’s worse: having snow fall down your neck or wearing a balaclava? Neither is ideal. Thankfully, there is another solution on the market and it’s called the Nekkr.

Made by a company in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, the Nekkr is like a bandana, only it’s waterproof, windproof and it attaches right onto your helmet. To keep it from flying up, there is a powerful magnet on the Nekkr that attaches to a Nekkr pin on your jacket. The open back design of the Nekkr allows for fresh air flow. In addition to keeping you warm and dry, the Nekkr is even said to reduce goggle fogging.

“These things work,” said Team Slednecks rider Derek Wood of Revelstoke, B.C. “If riding deep pow is your thing, you’re gonna want to have a Nekkr attached to your lid. I’ve been thinking of ways to keep the snow out of my neck for years now on the deep days when big downhill descents couldn’t get any better, and after discovering the Nekkr that problem no longer exists.”
