Product review: Velobici PBP Tivoli seamless collar

Velobici PBP Tivoli seamless collar, £30
Miles covered/time:
650/one month

What's good: Sometimes two worlds collide and have something to teach each other. This neck warmer is actually designed for cycling, but has many features that make it great for motorcycling in colder weather.

The makers say its design “marries durability with comfort, practicality and European chic”. Neck warmers for sale on the MCN Shop. On durability I’ll report back on the other side of November, but for now it firmly ticks the other three boxes.

It’s one of the comfiest things I’ve worn round my neck – it just feels plush – and the elasticated opening ensures it seats snugly (but not over-tightly) over your nose (if you want to wear it as a mask), or round the neck.

All-importantly, it keeps out the autumnal chills on early mornings and late evenings. It’s black (so goes with anything), has a subtle, stitched-in logo, and to my mind looks better than a lot of gawdier neck tubes.

I like my riding kit to suit all purposes if possible, so the fact that this doesn’t scream ‘motorcyclist’ rubs me up the right way.

What’s not: Although it’s undoubtedly a quality garment, for around the same money you could get yourself a waterproof neck tube that would suit all conditions, all the way through winter.

So, the Tivoli collar is for dry-use only really. That’s as far as criticisms go, though.
