Extra protection for your neck, nose and chin when Jack Frost turns from playful to severe. Heatwave Merino keeps you toasty and well covered should there be a 'stand and deliver' moment mid ride.
▹ Man vs Wild
Merino is unrivalled for comfort as a body layer. It absorbs more moisture than synthetic fibres, mopping up excess sweat rather than letting it settle and cool on your skin. However high-aerobic activities like cycling will often overload ordinary merino. Heatwave's polyester component repels moisture to avoid total saturation of the fabric - so it dries faster to keep you toasty.
▹ Snug-as-a-Bug Fit
Heatwave™ Merino tops are intended to hug your body, ensuring the fabric sits against your skin to wick sweat away - keeping you dry and not chilling out.
▹ Hot 'n' Cold
As a single garment Heatwave™ Merino regulates your temperature through a wide range of conditions. Delivering comfort in all but the hottest climes. Yet it is versatile enough to layer under a WindFoil™, microFoil™ or HydroFoil™ shell in winter.
▹ More than Kiwi Made
Wearing our scruffs on a cold wintery day in Taupo keeps the gap between cycle helmet and neck line toasty warm. Glad we have them as we are booked to do the alps to ocean trail end of September so will need them to keep us warm
My scruff is comfortable and light-weight to wear and great for extra warmth around my neck.
But not in reality! Great design & materials, doesn't ride up like many do & can handle being worn a few times before needing a wash.
I was about to do more than normal winter riding in the Central North Island and also the Heaphy Track and was keen to keep warm. It compacts small and can be carried in your bag just incase. Great for keeping the neck warm and I like the fact that it V's down your neck a bit more than a standard buff. It was loose enough around the neck to not feel too tight.
There's always wind when you're cycling, so the scruff is excellent to tuck around your neck in light or strong winds. Looks good too and wrap around your head as a bandanna. Extra length to tuck down the back and front of you neck. Recommend!
