    Keeping sun off neck

    I find that if I get too much sun on my neck, it causes me to overheat later in the day. Any solutions for this? I thought about trying to attach a light piece of white cloth to the back of my helmet. I've tried sun screen, but doesn't always work.

    I have the same problem too. I also get sun burnt on my neck.

    I found some of my old paintball gear, and I'm going to try using my neoprene neck protector.

    Probably won't work, but it's worth a try

    How do you get something like those hats under your helmet? Unless of course you cut the hat down so it was just the sweatband plus the cloth down in the back...

    Cut up an old white tshirt and stuff one end under your helmet and the rest down the rear neckline of your jersey. A little ghetto but it will do the job.
    Please donate to IMBA or your local IMBA chapter. It's trail karma.

    Pace makes a sweat head cover with the best tail to shade your neck. I use a coolmax one. Skull Cap White Coolmax
    Do NOT use the long tailed HALO as it's sweat band is to thick to wear under a helmet and gives me an instant headache.
    The other thing I do here in HOT Arizona is velcro a Dr Shade neck shade to my helmet, that works great. When it's hot and the gnats come out I use 1/2 of a Buzz Off bandana velcroed on my helmet to keep the nasty GNATS away from my face, works great.
    Can't see that Columbia working under a helmet.

    Take a look at Buff Headwear. I've never worn one while biking, but I wear them all the time while on the water paddling or fishing. I particularly like the High UV Buff made with Coolmax.

    I used to use pieces of an old white T-shirt. I now carry a couple of lightweight bandanas and tuck one up into my helmet. It might look goofy, but it does protect the neck.

    I have two Icefill Domes from Zoot Sports. My hair is long, so I cut a hole just below the band and wear it in a braid on top of the rear flap. If you hair is short, it should work well, if it's medium but can't be pulled back, maybe not.

    The terry band over the forehead also prevents any sweat from running down my face.

    Sunscreen doesn't last long with my sweating so I ended up zip tie-ing a piece of fabric to my helmet and if works great.
