Held Gore-Windstopper Neck Tube - Black
Customer Product Reviews
Great bit of kit
Decided to buy this after getting bad rain seep in through the collar of my jacket when touring in Slovenia resulting in a sopping wet T shirt inside my Held Goretex Jacket. I've only tried this in fairly light/medium rain so far but it's done the job even though that's not strictly what it's designed for and it's both comfy to wear and keeps you warm. I'm a 16.5-17 collar so bought the large and it's tight enough to keep the weather at bay but loose enough to be comfortable. It doesn't come that far down the chest but it's plenty to keep out the chill so no complaints. Seems to be another well made bit of kit from Held and I think it was well worth the money. Great service by SBS as usual
Does the job
Not as long down the chest as I was expecting - the stock pic makes it look like its half way down the guy's chest! But it does effectively stop the wind as my jacket's winter liner doesn't cover the are an inch or so either side of the central zip. D'oh. Got the large (I'm 6'4" but slim) and I find it quite loose around the neck, but comfortable, and the side zip makes it easy to get on/off. But as it's so loose around the neck I might have to also wear a thin neck warmer thing. Not worn in any serious rain yet so can't comment there. Generally pleased with it but it ain't cheap. And better than the sheet of bubble wrap against my chest I had been using!
