- New Buff Time
I have just bought the Windstop version, the Cyclone I believe. No real reason other than the main reason I wear one is to keep the wind off my neck and Windproof material seems a nice way to do this 😀 Merino seems like a very sensible option too although I tend to wash them quite often so smells and wotnot are less of a concernPosted 4 years agobikebouyMember
I use raphas merino “neckalce” I have a couple, orange and purple and a can’t recommend them highly enough. I only use them for propers cold days though so thats sub 2C with windchill about -2C, kicking a roadie around does get a bit fresh. Don’t use them on my Niner as speeds are far less and my body temps are up and I don’t really like anything around my neck.Posted 4 years ago
Don’t ski, so can’t help there.
I do have a Buff but it stinks from sailing so it resides in my kit bag for emergencies..
Reet. I have taken onboard all of you comments, and ordered
something completely different as is normal on STWa cyclone and a merino one from Amazon to compare.
Gawd I love free returns 8)
One thing. Word on the street is that the Merino ones can lose their shape…any thoughts?Posted 4 years agobikebouyMember
Yeah they die if you boil wash them 🙄
So long as washing machine temps don’t go higher than about 30C you should be fine… Then a spin and air dry, don’t stick em in the tumble dryer though eh…. Or they might just fit Barbie Girl or become a collar for your mens parts… 😆Posted 4 years ago
Just as an update, kept the merino wool one in the end. Doesn’t look like it will hold it’s shape as well as the cyclone, but will be more versatile for day to day use, whereas the cyclone is very focused and to be honest is probably better suited for use on a motorbike etc.Posted 4 years ago
