    ▹ Hazard!™

    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 Ecover, Ecostore, Earthwise 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.

Spook

I really like the lightweight brightly coloured Spook that gives me a wind breaking warm layer in Queensland's winter. We do get some cold mornings although it wouldn't compare with NZ! I am also impressed with how small the jacket folds, so I can store it after use in my jersey pocket. Great design!

Spook

I bought a spook jacket many years ago and was brilliant. I wore it a lot and have recently replaced the old one; which I got quite attached to.

Great product, bright and lightweight

I am a size 10 and purchased a size 12 and was glad to have a little bit of room to accommodate wearing my work uniform underneath on my daily commute. It folds up to be very compact. I love it

The Spook - Don't underestimate this lightweight

Feels tissue paper thin so super light but still a winner against wind chill. No sweat on the run and on the bike but yet to test extent of external moisture repellence.
