I still have my other sweat band from PI, but this is a sweet improvement. Holds more sweat keeping a deluge of sweat off your helmet padding. This is important to me. Not to mention this thing is difficult to saturate to the point of dripping. Air passing through it provides cooling. I use it in the cooler part of the year to block some of the cold air on my head. I actually have their cooler weather one that partially covers my ears and its awesome also. Well, well, worth the money.
Logging long distance rides in the Florida heat and humidity has its side effects. The salty sweat spray on the inside of my eye wear makes for a distracting ride at times. Using this head band has drastically reduced the sweat from finding its way onto my lenses. Simple and effective solution.
Yay no more sweat in my eyes. I was skeptical but I was desperate so I got a headband and it works great l dont know why I didnt do it sooner so if you have the same problem get a headband.
