Hoo Rag is a new company that makes tubular bandanas that you can wear under your helmet (or many other ways) to provide an extra layer of protection and warmth. The Hoo Rag is similar to other multifunctional headwear products and has similar uses. It comes in a multitude of colors and designs ranging from paisley, camo and digital camo to scuba and flyfishing inspired patterns. Hoo Rag also does custom and wholesale orders, so almost anything is possible.
I received a couple of Hoo Rags a few weeks ago and have been using them on my bike rides, particularly on the colder days (which there are plenty of now!) They fit comfortably and easily under the helmet and the extra insulation is important especially if your helmet is heavily vented. The Hoo Rag is made from a lightweight cotton-polyester blended micro-fiber and does well at wicking away the sweat. Cleaning is easy, I machine wash in warm water and hang dry. The fabric stays fresh and there has been no color or pattern fade.
Besides being useful under the helmet on cold bike rides, the Hoo Rag can be used as a face protector or neck warmer for snow bike riders (or skiiers/snowboarders). Other uses include: headband, balaclava, neck scarf or hair scrunchie. Hoo Rag also specializes in bandanas for the US Marine Corps, fisherman, motorcyclists and even dogs!

The price of the Hoo Rag is $14.95 for most designs and if you aren’t picky about the design, there are 3 color combinations (black/white, white/black/, pink/white) available with the Hoo Rag logo for $9.95
