    Being a bit of a sweaty git after a commute a few months ago I decided to buy a Halo headband.
    For one reason or another I have only just started to wear it on my commute to work and I wished I had started much sooner.
    It does it's main job of keeping sweat out of my eyes, not a very nice experience but it also seems to keep me cooler and sweat much less. I have been arriving at work after 90 minutes on the bike feeling very fresh and most importantly virtually dry. I can only speculate that the headband is retaining sweat to keep my head cooler thus meaning less need to sweat. It also seems to result in being less thirsty as well.

    My name is Ian and I wear a Buff, Pirate Stylee.
    Keeps the sweat out of the old eyes and dissipates sweat very well, keeping the head feeling cool.

    I had read a properly configured buff can do the same but being a lazy so and so I bought the headband.

    I let the sweat roll into my eyes which gives me sore (red) eyes. My colleagues are in awe at my hardness.

    What's wrong with a nice cycle cap?

    I wear a Buff Pirate Stylee under a nice cycle cap (for the commute it's a buff under a nice baseball cap).

    Yup. I favour buff riding for comfort, smeared from head to toe in Vaseline for max aerodynamics and speed.

    But you can make a few quid on the side selling them to the makes of garibaldi biscuits ;)

    I wear a cap. Unfortunately I tan very easily and it has left me with a tan line across my forehead. Luckily not as noticeable as the tan line on my wrists.
