360 Scarf Review and Giveaway

The lovely creator of a little gizmo called the 360 Scarf contacted me to see if I'd be willing to do a review and giveaway. And as the owner of dozens of scarves, I hesitated. But as a resident of a state that boasts freezing temps and copious snow, I figured I should give this invention a whirl!


This is what the 360 Scarf looks like laid flat. It comes in many colors and patterns, but I selected the Multi Mohair option*. I'm a sucker for anything multicolored.


The back of the scarf is lined with soft black polar fleece, which makes it fully reversible. You can also see that the two end tabs have velcro on 'em. That's because ...


... you wear the 360 Scarf by wrapping the tabs around the back of your neck, securing them, and tucking the point into the opening of your coat. Unlike traditional scarves, this product covers every inch of potentially-exposed chest. No unruly loops that leave your neck and collarbone exposed to the elements. You can also pull the 360 Scarf up over your nose and mouth on particularly cold days. Full coverage, soft and warm.

Is it a bit gimmicky? Yes. But it's a smart gimmick. If you walk your dog on early winter mornings, make a long trek to work, or have to high-tail it across campus to class several times a day, this little invention will protect your sensitive neckparts against chill and wind better than the average scarf. And it's absolutely adorable to boot.

Luckily, the good folks at 360 Scarf are letting me give another one away to you lucky folks! Here's how you enter to win:
  1. Visit the 360 Scarf website.

  2. Leave a comment on this post telling which color scarf you'd love to win, and A VALID E-MAIL. Comments without a valid e-mail in the comment will be disqualified.

  3. Cross your fingers!

Enter by midnight CST on Sunday, November 21. I'll draw a winner at random the following week. This contest is open to all readers, including international. Good luck, everyone!

Cedar said...

Oh, that is freaking cute. I live in Seattle, so it only gets the cold maybe two weeks out of the year, but I still love it. Plus, I don't wear scarves as often I want to because I'm often to stymied as to how to tie them--this solves that problem!

My fav is the Plum and Pink Boucle.

That scarf is just perfect and amazing. For wearing with jackets, I can't imagine anything better than a perfectly tailored scarf like this. :) But I am a huge fan of the Plum and Pink Boucle Weave color. It would go so well with my purple coat~!

I LOVE this ideas as one who cannot seem to tie a scarf right. I am really torn between the gray and the animal print but I'd go with animal print because I have nothing like it. Sure will get me out of my comfort zone.

It's a tough pick between the plum and pink boucle and the multi mohair, but I love the multi because of the rich jewel tones!

I love the Plum and Pink Boucle Weave -- how pretty! I always end up with that one part of my neck uncovered by the scarf, so this particular item would be awesome.

Louise said...

Oo, this would be perfect with my motorcycle jacket. I always wear a scarf with it, but in the winter a silk scarf doesn't cut it for warmth and a standard winter scarf is too thick.

I like the neutral ones, like the Black/White marble and the Grey Paisley.
