Here you need to distinguish between different masks.

FFP-2/FFP-3/N-95/N-99 will indeed reduce the amount of virus particles by 95-99%, but also remember that i won't spread as single virus particles but as small droplets. So if worn properly, it works!

Medical masks such as those used in that Danish study aren't meant to protect the wearer, and they don't. They are meant to protect the patient from foreign particles breathed by the wearer, and they do.

So, what about home made cloth masks? Well there are no proper cluster-studies out on that yet. There's one study coming really soon, but it's not out yet AFAIK.
Anyway, a thin one layer neck gaiter probably won't do much good, but a multilayered mask will probably catch most particles you breath out, which definitely is better than not wearing one at all.
