Q I’m brav­ing win­ter, but I need to keep my neck toasty

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Garage -

I’m plan­ning to ride through as many win­ter days as pos­si­ble but my neck is al­ready get­ting chilled. What’s the best in­su­la­tion? Tracey Rin­grow, Rom­ford

Neck­warm­ers di­vide into wind­stop­pers and breath­able va­ri­eties. Buff make a cou­ple of good op­tions for the win­ter, the Po­lar and the Cy­clone. The Cy­clone is so wind­proof that you can’t breathe through it – you have to line up the breath­ing patch on one side. The Po­lar is a bit more ver­sa­tile and can be worn in a num­ber of ways, in­clud­ing as a handy beanie. Alpines­tars make a nice fleece one as well as do EDZ and Fury­gan. Other wind­stop­per types can be found from Ox­ford, Rev’it and Knox among oth­ers. Prices start at around £9 and head north from there. Most bike shops should be able to of­fer you at least a small se­lec­tion to choose from.
