PLEASE NOTE: All hand-made gear (non-printed) may take up to 2 weeks to ship.
Based on designs present in our cowl collection, the Element MKII combines tough Cotton Jersey fabric with a modified shallow cowl-hood to form what is arguably our first active-wear type cowl. Perfect for anything from hiking to jogging, the Element capitalizes on its 14oz cotton/Spandex jersey fabric and slim profile to take on a variety of protective forms.
Fully deployed, the Element is a warm face gaiter with a shallow peripheral-vision optimized hood. Folded down, the Element can act as either a basic gaiter, or simply a neck and chest warmer that is easily tucked into other gear.
No matter what you are facing outdoors, the Element Gaiter has the flexibility and durability to help you take it head on.
- Redesigned Shallow hood minimizes clipped peripheral vision
- Fabric is breathable and resists pilling
- Neck piece provides snug fit and consistent placement
- Double stitched and extremely strong
- 95/5 cotton/Spandex blend

We Make Our Gear by Hand
All our non-printed gear is made-to-order, which means that upon order, your item is placed in queue to be made by hand, in our studio. Depending on our stock, your item may take up to 2 weeks before it is shipped. When it is, a tracking number will automatically be sent to the email address you provide at checkout. Shipping rates are based on weight, destination, and method, and we charge you only what we pay.
Customers within the U.S. may choose from a range of shipping options with USPS and UPS. Shipments within the US are estimated to take 3-5 business days in transit. See checkout for full list of precisely calculated shipping rates. Complications with delivery are rare, but please contact the shipping carrier to handle these issues. Once the shipment has left our studio, we are unable to offer assistance. Crisiswear is not responsible for delays caused by the post office or lost packages due to address errors.
International customers may choose from a range of shipping options provided by DHL, USPS and UPS. International packages are estimated to take 5-20 business days; however, faster options are available. See checkout for full list of precisely calculated shipping rates. Complications with delivery are rare, but please contact the shipping carrier to handle these issues. Once the shipment has left our studio, we are unable to offer assistance. Crisiswear is not responsible for delays caused by the post office or lost packages due to address or other administrative errors. International orders that are returned to us by the carrier, for any reason, will be liable for the entirety of the original (and return) shipping costs, plus a 10% restocking fee.
...International Duties and Taxes
Duties and taxes are the responsibility of the customer and will be due at the time of delivery. If you do not pay the fees, your package will be returned to Crisiswear and we will refund you the cost of the item, minus return shipping (if applied) and a 10% restocking fee.
IMPORTANT: DHL International Shipments can include up to $15 in administrative fees. This is because DHL pays your Customs and Duties taxes up front at the border. This helps you get your gear super fast, but also represents an additional fee that is due at the time of delivery. For more information on Duties and Taxes, please go here.
Free Shipping - Contiguous US Only
Orders $150+ that qualify for free shipping will be shipped using the most cost effective method available that includes insurance and signature confirmation, at our discretion.
Route Shipping Insurance
Route shipping insurance is available on all Crisiswear shipments and is fantastic way to both track and insure your items. If you have opted to include it in your order, please familiarize yourself with their policies before anything happens to your shipment. While Route is generally easy to work with, they are strict when it comes to claims windows and will deny claims that fall outside of them. You can see all their policies here.

Domestic Shipping Charges
Crisiswear does not issue pre-paid shipping labels or otherwise pay for returns being shipped to our studio. However, we will cover all the shipping expenses to ship the first replacement package back to you. Any additional shipping charges will be the responsibility of the customer. Shipping invoices must be paid before packages are released.
International Shipping Charges (Outside of US & Canada)
Crisiswear does not issue pre-paid shipping labels or otherwise pay for returns being shipped to our studio. However, we will cover half (50%) of the shipping expenses to ship the first replacement package back to you. Any additional shipping charges will be the responsibility of the customer. Shipping invoices must be paid before packages are released.
NOTE: If your returned item displays evidence of having been worn, is missing its tags, or has clearly been laundered, altered or otherwise damaged, your item will be returned to you and your return/exchange request will be closed.
As of 1/20/2020, Crisiswear will be charging a 3% fee for refunds and/or cancellations of orders made more than 2 weeks after the initial order was placed. This is because Shopify (our platform) does not refund us the processing fee that we pay when your order is placed, and our production pipeline is significantly disrupted when in-queue orders are removed. Thank you for your understanding.
