Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I live in Chicago which was in dead center of the Polar Vortex in 2013-4. I walk 1/2 mile to work and often face 30 plus MPH down drafts off skyscrapers in the Loop on the worst days.
I wanted a long soft scarf to double up and wear around my neck to compliment my wool full-length overcoat. The style of these coats expose a man's neck down to about 6 inches which feels like cold knives when below zero winds hit.
This scarf is ultra-soft and extra long. I love the feeling of fleece over finer wool because the finer wool scarfs tend to be too thin to insulate well and usually too short to double up.
This scarf is also extremely warm and breathes so I don't get sweaty, since I do walk extremely fast.
One thing I did not like was the Port Authority white tag that was sewn in the side. I carefully unwound the thread and removed it. It makes the scarf look much classier and suitable to wear with a business top coat than if the bright white...
Upon opening my package, the first thing I smelled was harsh textile chemicals. I'm sure that's only temporary, but it made me nauseous. The scarf doesn't feel like fleece...it feels like one of those small polyester blankets that's been washed about 20 times. I sent it back right away. You can do a lot better for the price if you wait for one of the off-price department stores to get scarves in stock again.
This review is for the PA scarves in red, navy, black, and grey. Overall, they are soft and feel great to touch (I do not like scratchy anything). The actual size is correct as listed in the description. I will add, the grey does not feel as thick/heavy as the others - not thin, just not as thick. As others noted, there is a small PA tag on the end of the scarf with care instructions. I do not find it to be a major issue, especially considering the many way one could wrap up. When all else fails, a razor blade will get the stitching out. I'll return in the fall/winter to comment on warmth. My review will be that of a person who has lived most of their life along the pacific and gulf coasts, relocating to Madison, WI.
