- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
is it a hat, a cap, a scarf, a set of ear muffs, a snot catcher..... i dont know but after this epic 2014 winter this is a must in my cycling bag.
...a fun piece
this is a fun piece from Castelli. A neutral color scheme, goes with pretty well anything else you wear. Looks cool, keeps you warm. I like the versatility of it; twist and turn it and presto its a light hat, a neck gator, a headband.
For neck only
...otherwise if you use it as a head cap in temperatures varying between 50f-40f you will probably get sick.
Castelli advertises it's "thingy" as a multi purpose...well thingy.In theory it can be used in 3 different ways or more but practically it best serves as a neck warmer and it looks cool too,the fabric is stretchy and it does an impressive job in keeping moisture away but it's too thin and light to keep your head warm in rides on those chilly days.i would give it 5 stars as a neck warmer but 2 stars only as a head cap.
What do we do with this extra jersey material?
Well, Buff had a great idea... We can turn it into a tube! Except, we don't know how to make it seamless, like Buff does, so we'll just sew it together. I know it'll leave frankenstein marks on people's heads, but it'll be worth it. We can sell scrap material for thirthy dollars. Wahoo!
Oh, what, it doesn't fit nice like Buff's does? That's because it a leftover Jersey! Jeez! Man, you're picky!
Hey, OURS have Castelli logos, and Buff has sissy non-pro-cyclist stuff. Of COURSE they'll buy this stuff!
