I have one of these already which I wear as a neck warmer and now a head scarf to help my bad lockdown hair days. Bought a couple more for some colour diversity in my zoom calls :)
This is comfortable and light & thin. I will use it in winter for my Street Pastor patrols, but possibly also when i go traveling or backpacking to keep the sun off and be a warmer layer to add if-needed. it should pack super small. :)
I've tried many brands(non merino) , and they can sometimes feel a little prickly when it's really hot..
With ioMerino, l kept it on the whole day... didn't notice any discomfort.
The length is a little shorter than most I've tried(Buff, Wind Xtreme), and that's good , as it doesn't leave much tail behind(depends how u wear it).
With Buff etc... it's worn like a ski mask sometimes.
Doesn't work well with IOMERINO's length.
(but it's not meant for that, l think)
Wish there were more colors though.
something really vibrant... maybe even a high visibility range(night cycling).
When the Hobart wind picks up, having one of these in your pocket does the trick.
The tube feels great but as I have a skinny neck it feels too loose around the neck but guess it needs to be that size to stretch to cover ears etc.
Great to keep neck warm without having to wear a scarf
I bought 2 altitude neck tubes and they are very nice and comfortable, not too hot and compatible with skin feelings. They help to bump up heat without falling off. Easy to remove, good design.
While Merino is an amazing natural fibre, not all Merino fabrics are created equal. At ioMerino, we make our own fabrics, using only the best quality fibres, and to very specific specifications that make the most of the natural benefits of Merino. All of them are 'Merino rich’. No cheap blends passed off as Merino. No cheaper scratchy fibres or synthetic substitutes to save money. No unethical production. And each fabric is made for a specific purpose. So if you see something with a small amount of elastase or nylon added, you can be sure it absolutely needs to be there to enhance the natural stretch and durability.
It took every bit of our 140 years of experience in the wool industry to perfect our fabrics, but we think you’ll agree the end result was more than worth the effort.
