I saw a similar thread the other day and cant find it again, so sorry if I am repeating a question: I am a slap head and I sweat like a pig when I ride in the current heat and as such I want to find a new and decent headband to deal with my eyes getting swamped.

I have found a Craft pro cool headband but only in a nasty salmon colour, so any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
I should add I'm not looking for a bandana.
Cheers :D

    Get a buff - can be used as a headband and all sorts of other uses.

    i bought two of these a few years ago

    http://store.haloheadband.com/HALO_II_pullover_s/9.htm

    excellent piece of kit - no issue wearing under helmet. they have a strip to stop the sweat pouring down your face

    if i remember correctly it was only a couple of quid delivery from the us

    still going strong after a zillion trips to the washing machine

    highly recommended

    Nice, they look great too. I opted for a cheap sale Liquigas one from Prendas in the end, it's been spot on but I will not lie I am still on the look out for something else for the future so this is smashing.

    buffs do not work well as sweatbands - they get saturated very quickly....

    Bought an Assos summer headband myself, does the job - also have a buff which works OK but is a bit more hassle.
