REV'IT! Karma WSP Windcollar
Been looking for a good neck warmer for a long time
I have to have my neck covered when it is cool or else I am uncomfortable riding. I have tried several neck warmers over the years but they were always too bulky, drafty, short or had Velcro that would stick to my helmet when I turned my head and drive me batty. I finally found the perfect one. This one is thin enough to let me zip my jacket to the collar (I had to leave the top snaps opened with the bulkier ones) and packs nicely when it warms up. It blocks the wind really well, hangs low enough to cover any gaps between my jacket and tucks up into my helmet to stop drafts there. I am not a cold weather rider but have been out in the high 30's, low 40's with this on and my neck was relatively warm. The wind collar is not insulated but all I really need is to block the wind from my neck and I am good. Love it.
And I rated airflow as excellent in that there is none.

This thing worked great! A little hard to keep in place with a half helmet, and doesn't really fit snug enough to keep the back of your neck that warm, but it really blocks the wind in the front. Rode in 30+ degree weather and it kept the front and some of the back of my neck perfectly warm and dry. Also very comfortable.. non- constricting. I might think about getting a full head covering mask next time.

Fits great nice feel.
I like the quality and feel of this windcollar. It's great for cold weather riding, or to just keep the bugs out of your face. So far I like it and it's pretty comfortable.

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.
