Rated 5 out of 5 by from It doesn’t get any better than this Merino. Queen of sheep. Regarded by many as having the finest and softest wool of any sheep, bred since the 13th Century. Before the 18th Century, the export of Merinos from Spain was a crime punishable by death - but thankfully now they are bred around the world which means canny manufacturers like Rapha can turn them into wonderful pieces of clothing and accessories to enhance both our riding - and off-bike -experience. And so to the product in question. A simple, yet classic, timeless and stylish headband containing just the right amount of elastication to comfortably fit a wide range of head circumferences. I have a head of circumference of 54cm while my husband, who is also a completely different gender to me, has a head of circumference 57cm - yet, incredibly, this headband not only fits us both, man and woman, beautifully (although not at the same time! HAHAHAHAHAA!), but also looks equally stylish on each of us (although perhaps a little more on me, since my nose is more confident). The black colourway complements most skintones and hair colours although I particularly like it against my blonde hair, while its generous width works well to conceal those pesky greys around the hairline. It fits snugly under a helmet, and I won’t even comment on wearing it without a helmet because you never don’t wear a helmet, right? RIGHT. I put the headband to the test in a variety of situations - espresso, cappuccino, and even Earl Grey tea (milk not lemon) - I’m pleased to report it stayed in place comfortably and created none of those annoying seam-lines on the forehead which can otherwise totally ruin one’s post-ride allure. In summary I believe this to be one of the most useful uses of merino wool I have come across in my considerable years of living. I like it, and I think you will too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb headband Great piece of kit! Simple and very functional - I use it to add extra warmth on early mornings together with my Winter cap - and also on it own while trailrunning!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm without the bulk Great for fall riding. I am able to wear mind over or under a cap, and not too bulky under helmet. I have a bigger than averga head and it’s not too tight.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very warm.. I have a big head and I have tried in only once. It was a bit tight and very warm. Not sure if I will find the use for it very often.
