Night travel is a spooky experience. Many Ground Effect garments feature our Hazard!™ reflective logo and piping to help remind traffic that we're on the road too.

+More than Kiwi Made
Ground Effect clothing is crafted right here in New Zealand. Has been ever since we started back in 1994. Manufacturing locally works for us. We operate a quick-response system - holding minimal stock of any one item, but churning out a few more quick-smart when the pile gets low. The upshot is that we are seldom caught with our shelves empty, so orders get despatched the same day you place them.

  • All Ground Effect clothing enjoys a warm 40ºC machine wash. Try to avoid cold-water detergents and those with bleach, 'oxygen whitener' or fabric softener.
    • The cold-water varieties have little enzymes that are super-charged to brave the cold but can damage technical fabrics and cause skin irritation. 
    • Bleach rots natural fibres like merino, strips the dye, attacks laminates of waterproof fabrics and can also cause skin irritation.
    • Sodium Percarbonate (the main ingredient in oxygen whitener) can make colours run.
    • Fabric softener and stuff containing it like wool wash destroys the water repellent finish on waterproof and water resistant fabrics, and can cause colours to run. 
  • As a rule of thumb, a product that is easy on the planet is also easy on your body. Select a mild plant-based soap like EcoverEcostoreEarthwise or Aware.
  • Hand washing is sometimes the only option on tour, but a washing machine rinses more thoroughly and is preferable if you have the choice.
  • Most Ground Effect gear dries super-fast so hanging on the line or drooping over the bedpost is generally the best option. High heat can damage some fabrics so if you do take your threads for a spin, set the device on 'medium' or 'warm' rather than hot. A lap in the dryer is recommended for your rain jacket, after it has dried on the line, as it helps recharge its water repellent finish.

    Great prezy!

    Gave the Spook to my mum for fall/spring ridding. The colour is great. Ended up ordering the large (after reading other reviews about the narrow fit around the hips), which worked out as it fits well!

    Loving my Spook!

    Great lightweight windbreaker to prevent the chill. Easy to be spotted with awesome bright orange colour! Just be aware very snug sizing, which is good in the wind. I ordered a medium for extra room but had to swap that for a large.

    Two Spooks.

    The first, Old Spook, neon, men's, small, I bought in that cut to be able to wear OVER my packed running vestpack, to avoid having to take the pack off to don or doff my jacket. When vestless, I could simply roll it up and carry it in my hand. I hardly ever left home without it, running or biking, which means it got an outing 6 days a week. Hard working Old Spook. Young Spook, is azure blue, women’s medium. No chance of fitting over a running vest, so yes, the cut is very different. Is much admired by companions for its lovely and striking colour and its functionality. I just about never leave the house on foot or bike unspooked.

    Love my new jacket, so tricky to get a high vis colour that is actually nice, & I love the orange. Just the right amount of light weight wind chill protection for commuting. Sizes are a small fit. I'm pleased I got the medium, in most brands I buy small.
