Nice, I think Review by APA
I haven't had a chance to try it, .... but my wife loves it! :) (Posted on 1/6/12)
The ultimate multitasker Review 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 kit Review 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 Fabulous Review 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)

my opinion Review by Charles
The scarf is very beautiful and top quality but the cost of shipping at 10 $ is too high. It was etablish by postal service at less of 3 $ (Posted on 12/19/11)
Ahhhhhh, silk Review 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)

silk Review by jbull
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 scarf Review 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)

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.
