Wazzap homies! The search for the ultimate sweatband for ultrarunning is in full effect. If you cruise through my pics on Facebook or Instagram, you’ll quickly see that I’m a sweatband man with no shame. Hawaii is hot and HUMID, especially in the summer. Sweat dripping in the eyes is no joke, especially when you’re speeding along a narrow single track with an 80′ cliff on one side. There’s no way I’m gonna’ let a drop of sweat in the eye send me tripping over the edge. And, sweat dripping in my ears when I’m wearing headphones reminds me of when I got my first “wet willy,” so I wear a SWEATBAND.
I’ve been trying visors and hats (that may have some sort of sweatband built in), the fluffy white ones you can pick up at Walmart, a generic cooling sweatband that I found on Amazon, and some other more deluxe options. What’s the vertict? Ooh . . . coming soon.
