Wnter Clothing - Neckwarmers

Having swallowed the hype, I invested £20 in a "Coldkillers" neckwarmer from a well-known Chester bike shop.  Its absolutely useless - uncomfortable to wear (it came in a pack so you cant try it on ), bulky and it definitely does NOT keep out the cold. I have reverted to my £3 knitted warmers, so please learn from my mistake and steer clear of this overpriced rubbish

keeping warm

It`s all about airpockets,the body releases warm air,if you have tight clothing on you will be cold,if you have 6 tight t-shirts on you will be cold,if you have a string vest on with a t-shirt over the top you will be warmer, fleecy or brushed cotton is the same idea,man made fibre is no good for man nor beast.Note that hay/straw/wool produces heat when damp.:biggrin:

Only have the neck thingy

to stop chaffing.

Usually just wear a t under the leathers, neck thingy stops the draught coming down so I stay warm (but I am warm blooded).

Neckwarmers...

So many choices, the Oxford thing that came free with MBR, the 20 year old knitted tube, a WWII pilots silk scarf (yes the real thing!) or my usual choice in cold weather, two 'Fosters' bar towels sewn together for ~ 2/3rds of the short side, to make a long wrap that also crosses the chest and the 'V' the short stitching forms sits just nicely at the back of the neck, an idea lifted from a fellow RoSPA instructor (and Police motorcyclist) ~20 years ago...Not sure you can get bar towels anymore!
