REV'IT! Karma WSP Windcollar
Great neck wind protection
I needed something to help cut out the cold burn on the neck when riding below 40. I have used this down to 25 degrees this winter and it works like a charm.
Previously I had used a cheap $10 fleece balaclava which worked OK. However, I always had issues with it slowly falling down out of position. The Rev'it windcollar has form fitting elasticity that keeps it in place.
As a side note, this also worked very well for wind protection when I went skiing at 5 degrees in the Poconos.

Tried a few of these now.
The ones with the velcro attachment in the back that claim to be one size fits all were too small for me.
Used one that had neoprene face and chin coverage then a handkerchief like fabric through the neck. Chin was warm, but a bit wet. Condensation from my breath seemed to build up on the inside of the neoprene face mask near my mouth and chin. Just like a light misting, but still annoying. Neck was cold - the thin cotton fabric does little to nothing to block the wind.
This one keeps face and neck warm - full neoprene wind block and the fleece liner is very soft and comfortable. I no longer get condensation near my mouth and chin.
Love it, and can easily recommend it.

Keeps me warm.
Blocks the wind perfectly. Very breathable. No moisture forms inside. I have only worn it with my mouth covered. Keeps my neck warm. Really is incredible that I wear layers elsewhere and the collar keeps me warm on its own. Really soft and smooth. Peaked my curiosity to try other Rev'it products.

A small piece of apparel that can make the biggest difference!
I am 5'11", 165lbs with a slim build and average size neck. I ordered the medium and it fits good and stays in place. I tuck this little bad boy under the collar of my 4 season jacket when the temps go below 55. It is soft and does not chafe. I seriously can't feel any wind entering in through the neck area of my jacket or my helmet. Wore it on my commute to work today when the temp was 44 and road speeds ranged from stop & go to 70mph. Personally for me, at temps colder than this I might consider a full head balaclava as my ears became quite cold under my helmet. But the Karma WSP Windcollar helps make those cooler/cold rides a lot more comfortable!

When a big beard just isn't enough
This piece served a dual purpose in helping to preserve the shape of my big beard that tends to get a bit crazy after a ride, and also cuts an insane amount of chill out of a cold weather ride.

Works As Advertised
When the temps finally do drop in So Cal, this windcollar is a perfect edition to the early morning gear. Comfortable, easy to put on/take off, and great at blocking the wind. Could not ask for anything more out of this type of product.

Stops the wind
I wanted something that would keep my neck warmer than the scarf that I was using. This thing keeps my neck warm and keeps the cold air from going down my jacket.
I wear a full face helmet and find that keeping the nose cover on when I pull my helmet on the first couple of times a little difficult, but with practice it stays in place.

Block that wind
I picked this up yesterday and had just tested it out last night while it was about 8 degrees out, it really blocks the wind from sneaking in. I got a large but it sits slightly loose, probably because I don't have a sharp bridge of a nose how ever the helmet helps keep everything in place. If you want something more snug I would probably recommend getting a medium. Not sure if this matters but my hat size is 7 1/2
