Super-soft merino winter cycling essential

Made from a rich merino wool blend, the Rapha Winter Collar is a versatile product which is ideal for both winter training and city cycling. An extension of Rapha’s base layer system, the merino fabric provides excellent protection against the cold and is highly breathable. Available in three different colours, the stretch in the fabric means it can be pulled over the head for extra protection on particularly cold days.

To maintain and protect your merino products we recommend using Rapha Merino Wash »

Rapha Merino Wash has been specially formulated for Rapha merino products, with a gentle action that cleans without stripping out the natural oils that are the key to merino’s performance. Used regularly, the wash will remove dirt and refresh merino garments thanks to ingredients that include Rapha’s Ventoux fragrance. Inspired by the plants and herbs that grow on the slopes of the ‘Giant of Provence’, the wash also has natural Cedar extract to help repel moths.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite piece of Rapha gear. Out of all the Rapha items I own this is my favorite! It dawned on me that the reason it's so warm is that it keeps the back of your neck warm, sort of the opposite effect of putting an ice pack on the back of your neck. The versatility is amazing as well. You can just wear it around your neck or pull it up over your mouth and nose on colder mornings. It takes up no space so carrying it in a jersey pocket is easy. Lastly, the fabric is beyond comfortable. It's like wearing clouds it's so soft. Love this piece of gear, makes a great gift!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adaptable and Oh-So Euro As a midwest transplant, the majority of my rides are in 30-55 degree weather. The winter collar's adaptability makes it my go-to accessary for chilly, cold and down right frigid days in the saddle. I've tried a few other brands, and none come close to the performance fit and cut that this one does; no excess bagginess, and no falling off the face every time you look down at your Garmin. Extra credit: all the new peeps I meet in the midwest think I'm some Euro racer dude with a scarf (atleast until it's time to go uphill).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best winter garment Being Norwegian and having worn various incarnations of scarves and snoods for 40 years, this is by far the best I have used, and my current favourite winter garment. The elasticity makes it snug, and can be pulled well up onto your face, staying in place. It also doesn't lose it's shape when damp or wet, like many other neck garments.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fall and winter necessity! I have owned a black Rapha Winter Collar for years and it is a piece a rider should not be without. Wanted a different color as I wear it spring and fall riding on the road AND mountain biking and cross country skiing in the winter! I pull it over my nose and most of my face in the most severe weather and keeps my neck warm as well. Durable and easy to wash as all Rapha products are.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best Really cosy. The fact that this is designed to spread out to cover the base of your neck ranks it above a simple buff.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from cool collar! Neat and comfy merino collar. Stays well in place, thanks to tight upper line. Suits also with city clothes :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice cosy snood A nice accessory to have, merino is soft and non itchy, warm for all conditions under 10'C. It packs down very small. Washes well keeping its shape and colour. Nice to have a good range of colours to choose from And enjoy the plainness of it. The slightly dropped front is great to avoid air creeping in under the jersey and the little stitched rapha tab is nice to orientate an otherwise tube shape.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish and practical Have loved the winter collar, brilliant for adding that extra bit of protection against the cold and the wind. Love the way it can be around your neck acting as a buffer but when facing a descent into cooler air you use pull it up over your mouth and nose for that little bit more warmth. Copes with a gentle wool wash in the washing machine , dries quickly ready for the next ride.

How do i determine if i should get this winter collar or the deep winter collar?  Is there a temperature range etc?

Asked by: Karin
Hi, as we all regulate temperature differently we are unable to advise on the temperature range. The Winter collar is a fine grade merino and suitable for most cold days with fantastic insulation properties. The Deep Winter Collar is a heavy gauge merino and meant for use on the very coldest of days. The collar is cut deeper at the front to cover the base of the neck. It is stitched in two sections, so it can be pulled over the nose and mouth on the coldest rides.

What is the length (from top to bottom) of this neck collar?  I'm looking for one that will tuck (and stay in place) sufficiently into a jacket.  

Asked by: amber65
Hi, top to bottom the Winter collar is approximately 34cm at the front and 29cm on the back. They are designed to stay perfectly in place when worn with a jacket or jersey.
