This was the cheapest neck warmer I found in Amazon and the shipment adds only a few cents more for another piece, so I bought two.
My first impression was, "It's huge!" It measures 11 inch(W)x 14.5(L). Even if I fold it in half, it'll still cover my neck completely. If I use it normally, the front part of the warmer sags down to expose my throat.
Compare to this, my old one I have used for many years measures 9.5(W)x 9(L) and I have no trouble getting my head through it, nor trouble covering my neck.
I think the company did so purposely to minimize the merchandize return. If they sell it as "one size fits most", it'd better be too big than too small.
I tried a few different ways to over come this such as use of paper clip. At the end, what worked best was, pull the front part away from the neck then fold it around the neck, then tuck the layered part in. This alone looks good and works good but I also tuck the top of the warmer all around inside to make it uniform.
But what if you want to cover a part of the face up to the nose? I really don't know. It's just too loose to stay on. You may have to carry a big rubber band for that purpose.
The material and the build quality is quite nice, so it's not like total disappointment. In fact, since I found the solution, I enjoy wearing it.
It's nice, cozy and useful even in California if you decided not to use the heater of any kind in the house. I also use it for bicycle riding at night where the temp. goes down below 50.
