There kinda like a casket from your parka to tour face mask. But most of them make my glasses fog and feel like I'm choking.
I can do that shooting coyotes my self , don't need a Gaiter doing it for me.
I looked around in town and found a White silk Neckerchief That's about 36" sq. Works great so far.
I can pull it up to my nose or use it lose around my neck.
I think it is just what I have been looking for.
I guess them old cowboys knew what they where doing.
Silk is like wool only soft, just cant beat natural fibers.
PS
I have several sets of Longie's made of silk and some of wool, WONDERFUL.

One of the joys of wearing glasses. I used to wear contacts hunting to avoid that, but in real cold and wind, they dry out too much.

Try a silk turtle neck base layer, with silk kerchief as final layer. I've tried prescription, anti-fog ski googles, they help enough to justify cost. Anti-fog sprays never did it, too much glare and distorted view.

 I work in -10 most of the year, so here it goes. A good fleece with a collar that zips to the top and a good fleece hoodie. T-shirt and a good long tailed thermal shirt underneath. A light windbreaker over the top and you'll be sweating in no time. As for the Contacts....Oakley M-frames for the sun, and just a good set of wrap around safety glasses,(Bearclaw), for lowlight conditions. Sitting in the cold is a whole different scenario. Layers of silk and a good buffalo woman helps!  
...oh yeah! thats gonna hurt!

D4570: When I head out Coyote Hunting in the dead of
winter I make sure to bring along my military surplus
knit wool muffler/scarves!
These things keep in the heat and keep the wind from
cooling ones neck and chest.
I have bought literally a hundred of them in the last 30
years - I give them to children for skiing and sledding
and to ill equipped Hunters when a cold snap occurs.
I also use them while ice fishing and no ice house is
available.
I used to buy them around Fort Lewis, Washington for a
dollar but now they are up to about two dollars apiece.
They are knit wool olive drab in color and in a round
tube shape and about 3 feet long.
Goes around my neck twice and a little more or just wrap
around once and let dangle down inside the coat.
Hold into the wind

About 45 years ago, when skiing in Canada, I bought
dickie. works for my neck and upper chest, very soft.
Can roll it up or roll it down sort of like a temperature
control. Wore it every day when 'ote hunting in the
refrigerator last week.
