Neck protection?

Hi guys,

Can anybody recommend a good neck protector? Does such a thing exist?

I'm not thinkly soley of safety (although its definitely a benefit), more so of the cold weather thats on the way. My suit is really low cut around the neck.

Maybe an under armour type turtleneck shirt?

Any ideas?

In cool weather I wear long sleeve cotton turtle neck T-shirts I get from Land's End. When it gets even colder I use a polypropolene balacava under my helmet that also covers my neck. Also comes in handy when I need a little extra cash from the local Circle K.

I have an older, fleece model of the "tube" in link below. Basically a turtle neck by itself.

As SWjohnsey I use a balaclava/ neckwarmer/ shouldercover during the winter, keeps you nice & toasty

Laughingly refered to by girlfriend as "the executioner's hood"

What if it's all Bullshit

Check out the wind triangles and wind bands from Aerostich:

They are nice because you can take them off easily when it warms up. They are heavy enough to protect your neck from rocks on the highway.
