Latest Purchase: Winter Ready

Latest purchase is a Nevica Skuff.

It's a reversible snood-like thing with a fleece lining that can be used as a neckwarmer, facemask, snood, headband/earwarmer or hat.

Very versatile and initial tests show it's very warm.

Sports Direct have them on their website. Make sure you get the reversible fleece one though. The cheaper ones look to be only single layer, but may still be worth it as a handy neckwarmer. Mine was £7.99 and looks good quality for the price.


  1. Swear by 'em (and equivalents - Lidl occasionally have them) as I cycle to work and in the winter they're a God-send..

  2. I'm the same Steve. I used to have a woollen equivalent but lost it last winter. I've been looking for a replacement since. The Nevica one seems pretty good quality and the price is reasonable. They're a pretty versatile bit of winter kit.

  3. Whatever I wear, if I don't have a cord from the hat around my chin I end up losing it - the last nice warm (to you "Skuff" to NZers a "Beanie") Beanie was lost in the last winter race when I capsized. I was more pissed off about losing the Beanie than losing the race.

  4. Mark - just in case you hadn't seen the adverts..

  5. Yes Steve, it's on my Boat Jumble Page. I'm not sure if I'll go yet, I've got something I'm watching on eBay. If I get it I'll be skint but have a part fro the boat. If I lose it, then I'll be down the boat jumble. :-)
