Afternoon guys
looking for a rapha winter collar in any colour but pink and not the sky one but the rapha site seems to be out
any ideas of any other stockists or places apart from ones listed on the site that might have these please?
thanks

    I have an unhealthy love for Rapha kit but (can't believe I'm going to say this) a standard plain merino buff that can be picked up for at least a tenner cheaper is just as good as this piece. So don't lose sleep if you can't find the Rapha one ;-)

    ha
    i will bear that in mind mate thanks
  • My sister-in-law bought me one for Christmas (the orange one). I was sceptical initially, but I absolutely love it now.

    Not much help in terms of finding one, granted, but just wanted to offset the cynics! :lol:

    I did look too but I could only find pink on ebay, then again Rapha only seem to have 3 colours in their spectrum, black, white and pink and 2 of those you dont even class as colours!!!

    I think the buff (although they're not allowed to use the word buff) along with some other accessories were given away free to customer's who had orders in delay when they moved the distribution center earlier this month. So that's prob why they vanished so quickly.

    yeah i had a jersey on order that was delayed and got sent the pink one,black with a bit of pink would of been fine but completely pink was a bit much,really nice item though

    Have you checked Royles? They sell Rapha gear online. I think Sigma Sport also sell Rapha now too, but only in store if you happen to live that way.

    You could always try Condor, or phone up the cycle club (cafe) - they sometimes have stuff in there.

  • Seriously, they ain't worth the money
    I'm sorry you don't believe in miracles

    Planet X, £9.99 GF has a Rapha one and it's nice but the Planet X does the same job using the same material

    FWIW - I got the EDZ Merino multi tube tube for my B'day. It was from Amazon apparently. I've never used a neck tube/buff before but now think it's one of the most useful bits of kit I have. Nothing else to compare this to but I'm impressed with it:
