Product Description

Details

A classic silk scarf should be soft, thin and slippery — so you can wrap one around your neck, close up your jacket and rotate your head and neck all day in draft-free comfort, without chafing. These luxurious 100% natural silk scarves are handmade of a soft, dense weave that’s perfect for riding. No synthetic fiber is warmer, softer, stronger, or more durable.

Silk provides maximum comfort across every temperature range: warm and draft-blocking when cool, and refreshing when worn wetted during hotter conditions. When you’re traveling this durable silk washes perfectly in any sink, too — even with a simple bar of hand soap.

The Standard Scarf model is medium weight silk of sensuous softness, and measures 14"×72". The Competition Scarf model is similar to the standard model but two layers thick, and it is a bit narrower and shorter. It measures 10"×60". Both are premium quality, long lasting pure silk that will keep the wind, rain, dust and snow from blowing down your neck, and will pack away ultra-small inside any pocket.

No other neckwear works this well, or looks this cool.

Be kind to your neck.Review by Peter
This is a must for anyone who wants to look around. The silk scarf feels epic, seals your collar and allows very comfortable head swiveling. You don’t notice it after a few minutes. Ordering and delivery were effortless. Thanks for a quality product, I am going to buy some for presents.

Dont leave home withoutReview by Joe
Silk is your friend. Blocks wind, manages moisture, helps prevent neck irritation, insulating, all round good stuff. Lost mine while riding, bought a replacement at the store, but silk was hard to find, and the quality was not there either, will buy from AreoS again, but try the Competition, and go with black (to hide dirt better) (Posted on 3/4/12)
So Cool Review by Ken
I like it! Almost elegant; feel I should be flying a bi-plane and have it flapping out. I prefer the wrap around rather than the loop. Classy, functional. But hard to iron out the fold creases! I wish Aerostich had not sewed on such a noticeable tab as I think it distracts from the scarf. Still, I bought one for my brother also. (Posted on 1/20/12)

The ultimate multitaskerReview by Justin
The ultimate multi-tasker. A warm neck is a warm body. It feels good against my skin and helps tolerate the freezing temperatures on my ride home. That is not why I think this scarf is so cool. It can/has been used as a splint, bandage, tie down, fashion accessory, compress, tie up, wet it can be a tow rope, pillow, and padding around a wine bottle.

But most importantly is how I can let it flap in the wind as I filter through commute traffic. (Posted on 1/4/12)
great piece of kitReview by esco
It stops the wind down my neck, keeps me warm, doesn't chafe, takes up little space, is light... functional and good-looking to boot. (Posted on 12/29/11)
Functional and FabulousReview by UrbanGryphon
My husband wears this scarf primarily during the winter months when he's riding in sub-freezing weather. It looks cool and never seems to wear out despite years of use. This year we bought a few scarves to give to friends for gifts. We know they'll love them! (Posted on 12/25/11)

History + Leftovers




Mil-spec 'big H' history...

Silk was so important that its trade probably changed the world history more than any other technology. The famous 'Silk Road' connected Europe to the Far East during the middle ages, and this brought together global knowledge that advanced civilization and helped begin the renaissance.

Strategic military considerations, not demand for fashionable garments, caused the establishment of this trade route. During the middle ages front-line soldiers lived, traveled and fought wearing coarse tunics and outer uniforms. Silk scarves allowed soldiers to close their protective battle (and outdoor survival) garments tightly around their necks without chafing or discomfort, so they could fight better and travel farther. This was a true battlefield advantage.

As recently as World War I this remained so. Early planes and cars were all 'open cockpit'. Soldiers still lived and campaigned outdoors for weeks at a time, and this meant wearing heavy gear. After the war civilian pilots, race car drivers, motorcyclists and movie idols (Douglas Fairbanks, Errol Flynn...) further enshrined silk scarves as garb synonymous with bravery, courage and endurance.

Then airplanes and cars became enclosed and military dress adapted. Soft, slippery scarves became unnecessary. Silk's swashbuckler history and function was not only forgotten, it became a laughable cliché. Something only worn by old men.

The last vestiges of the silk scarf's centuries-long military role evolved into the fashion of men wearing neckties with their sport coats, blazers and business suits. Silk scarves had become decorative neckwear. (Now you know where neckties come from.)

That's sort of a sad ending for such an important habiliment -- except once again riders have rediscovered how great these scarves work when worn with modern riding gear closed tightly around one's neck. Once you've tried wearing one, you'll never look back. Make some history.
