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.

Ahhhhhh, silkReview by Steve in VT
Feels good, looks great, soft and warm as a kitten. Sure, you can ride without one, but considering how incredibly dashing it is, why would you want to? (Posted on 12/14/11)

a classic simple scarf that works as advertised. Cool in summer, warm in winter. Every motorcyclist should have one. (Posted on 12/6/11)
Awesome scarfReview by dpatten
This scarf is great. Keeps the cold wind from seeping down thru the collar. Feels good on the neck too. Several non-riders have commented on the "aviator" look. Seeing that I used to fly helicopters, many think I am back doing that job. (Posted on 11/28/11)
Like the Red BaronReview by SantaFeTrailer
I first used this for a 4 day ride around West Virginia in 37 degree weather and it did a great job of keeping my neck warm. Then I wore it on an overnight with my wife where we stayed at a fancy hotel and I tossed it on to go out to dinner and drinks afterwards at a hip bar and I fit right in with all the pretty people. Just be prepared for your friends to make comments like "Fokker at 3 O'Clock!!" when you are wearing it, but if you have the taste to purchase this item you are used to such common jealousy.

Real SilkReview by Ahmet Karacahisarli
Excellent quality, long ,comfortable and really soft and slippery. makes you feel like a WWII bomber pilot when driving the bike! Avoids the scruf at the neck when wearing heavy gear. (Posted on 10/28/11)
Nice and softReview by James
I use my scarf for two reasons. One is to keep my neck warm on those chilly morning commutes, second is to prevent the collar of my jacket from chaffing on those long rides.
The scarf stays soft and supple no matter how much its been abused. Plus it folds up really small and is easy to transport. (Posted on 10/27/11)
Very NICEReview by gdfj12
These are VERY NICE. I bought one to try & is is very comfortable to wear with my Roadcrafter 2-piece suit, but it is also nice & warm to wear all winter long. It is light weight, thin & very smooth. And it keeps your neck toasty warm. I also had to buy one for my wife after she tried mine out. (Posted on 10/6/11)
ooooh, so soft!Review by Jerry
Ripped the scarf out of the package, I just had to try it on! Doing a wrap-tie (which I prefer), yielded a comforting and carressing feeling on my neck. I put on my one piece suit, and I can see where my neck will be feeling much better at the end of the day. I even wore it to bed, and my oh my, did it feel nice. Woke up with a nice warmth around my neck. Cant wait to try it while actually riding! (Posted on 10/2/09)

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.
