Storm Buff neckwarmer, £28.99
Time tested: 8000 miles/three years
What’s good? Even the depths of a British winter can’t combat this tough Buff neckwarmer, with its combination of Gore Windstopper material to keep the chill away from your neck, and a thinner material to cover your nose and mouth to keep you snug inside your helmet yet still be able to breathe properly. If it’s really cold you can even have the Windstopper section up around your nose and mouth and be able to breathe just fine, and you’ll also have less bulk around your jacket fastening. It’s the best neckwarmer I’ve used in single-digit temperatures (and below).
What’s not? The price seems high for a neckwarmer, but it’ll still be performing well in five years’ time (unlike many of the cheapo ones knocking around)
