AbstractA tubular garment (10) which is worn around the neck and optionally at a variety of positions on the head, to provide protection which can easily be adjusted in response to weather conditions. Wearing positions range from covering the neck only, to covering the entire head, including the mouth, cheeks and forehead. The garment's tubular shape is characterized by having the ends (12 and 14) of the tube at angles of less than 90 degrees to the sides of the tube. The angled ends provide the adjustability in wearing positions by creating a variation in the length of the tube sides from a maximum at the back (26) of the garment to minimum at the front (16). The end (12) of the tube which optionally covers the head is further characterized by a drawstring (20) which allows adjustment in the circumference of the end, thus providing a means of securing the garment in the chosen wearing position.
