This cowl is structured, cabled, and warm as all get-out. It's 85% wool, 15% mohair, which makes it extra toasty for your face. The design and materials both contribute to its stiff structure, which means you don't have to worry about it falling down below your nose, cheeks or neck while you're out in the cold. The Cannon cowl is perfect for winter biking, when you can't be worrying about readjusting your gear. It pairs well with the Bulky Barrett hat, too.
