Just in time for the cold, rainy weather we’re starting to get here in DeFeet’s home state of North Carolina comes their latest creation, the neck gaiter.
Designed to surround the neck and dip down to cover the center of the chest, it’s made of ThermaCool rather than the wool used on their winter socks and base layers. Word from their independent product tester is that material won’t cause any complaints about the itchiness that some folks find with wool. Here’s the feedback we heard from their tester:
It’s relatively thick and this morning’s 48º rainy easy ride was OK but I will likely reserve this for sub-40º road rides or freezing-ish mtb rides. It is longer in the front to prevent neck/zipper draft. ETA is sometime in November – retail will be (reportedly) $24.99. First ride review is that it’s awesome but I will keep requesting a thinner version as well. Of course, it’s made in Hildebran, NC.

The name is Dickadee, which comes from an internal joke. Official word from DeFeet is it’ll ship on November 1 and indeed be $24.99.
