Alpines­tars neck warmer £8.99

Tester Michael Neeves Time used Three months/3000 miles What’s good? It’s prob­a­bly my age, but un­less it’s trop­i­cal out­side I can’t ride with­out some­thing to keep my neck warm. For the past three years I’ve been wear­ing my trusty Cold Killers Mini Tube (£19.99), which has been bril­liant, but after thou­sands of miles of fill­ing it with slob­ber I thought it time to try some­thing new. This Alpines­tars tube is made of a fleece, rather than the thin­ner wind-cheat­ing ma­te­rial that forms the Cold Killer, but it’s thick enough to keep out the chilly wind, and once on is lovely and warm. It’s long and well-fit­ted, so there’s no chance of any drafts get­ting up and un­der it, but not so bulky that it’s hard to wear un­der lots of lay­ers or un­der your lid’s chin strap.

What’s not? It’s a bit too warm for sum­mer and track rid­ing, so I ei­ther dig out my Cold Killer or light­weight EDZ neck tube (£9.99).
