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.”
Wearing a Nekkr is part of my everyday riding gear. I would feel unprotected without it as it is an essential piece of gear used to defend against the elements. Our Colorado snow conditions require wearing a Nekkr.
WHY I USE A NEKKR
I use a Nekkr because I wanna keep snow out of my jacket. The Nekkr covers the gap between your helmet and neck so on those deep days it's a must to keep snow out of your jacket.
BACKCOUNTRY RIDERS will enjoy this item as they plow through deep powder. NEKKR is a one of a kind design that plows snow away from your face, neck and clothing. This helps prevent frostbite, frozen zippers and snow inside your jacket. The design also eliminates goggle fogging. NEKKR attaches via Velcro to the helmet and has a magnetic button closure system that secures NEKKR to the jacket. It comes in a variety of colors.

SUPER LIKE MY NEKKR
Super like my Nekkr. Even when it's not a pow day it keeps all the wind off of your neck. Another great thing is when it's dumping you can take your helmet off, set it in the snow upside down, and it works as a cover to keep snow outta the inside of your helmet .
The Nekkr just flat works and it looks rad, no matter what your favorite color is.
I never leave home without my NEKKR!!! Nothing worse than an icy frozen neck.
A truly great design that allows you to take deep powder riding to the next level!
NEKKR KEEPS YOU DRY
In waste deep powder there is no way to keep snow from going down your collar, that was true before Nekkr. Now there is a solution, try Nekkr if you like being dry.
