    Keeps the sweat out of my eyes and the sun off my melon Keeps the sweat from rolling down my bald head and into my eyes. Wicks moisture away and keeps me cool while running in the hot sun. I wasn’t sure about UV protection, but since I’ve worn it a few afternoons without putting sunscreen on my head and haven’t gotten a burn, it appears it does keep the UV rays at bay. From a styling perspective, I could live without the “tail” in the back — I assume it’s supposed to make this look like it’s a bandanna tied in the back — and the large-ish logo near the front, but otherwise I have no complaints.

    Good product I never ride without one of these in the Summer. This works well to keep the sweat out of your eyes. These do make you sweat more as you are covering your head but that is to be expected.

    Never ride without one Keeps the sweat out of my eyes and the sun off. No more checkerboard tan lines on my dome. I live in the deep south where we have extremely hot and humid conditions. I often pour water on my head on really hot days. I used bandanas before but they absorb too much moisture and get kind of steamy. This fabric on this works perfectly. The water goes right through and wicks off quickly and cools my neck as well. You can rinse and wring this one out during a rest break and it is good to go.
