Feature Friday!!

So this week I decided to go with head gear. This item is more a question of personal choice: hats, visors, headbands oh my... I haven't had the opportunity to try out all the options yet, but I am working on it. So to start this weeks question is.....

What are you wearing on your head???? ( Do you prefer hats, visors, headbands or nothing at all?)

So this week I do have one review to give. I had the wonderful opportunity to try out a couple of items from Headsweats

"The topless is the least we can do for you: all the sweatband with none of the hat. Available in 6 vibrant colors and lined with our famous terry-cloth band, the topless keeps the focus on your workout and not on your sweat.

Product Details
The ultimate technical headband
CoolMax® terry against your skin keeps the sweat off your face and out of your eyes
CoolMax® construction wicks away perspiration and dries quickly
Elasticized back for a comfortable "

The SuperVisor
"There’s a reason or two that this visor is the most popular visor in the triathlon industry: it’s light; it’s durable; and it’s the trusted companion of thousands of Ironman finishers. The SuperVisor is a Headsweats original and remains the top selling visor in our line….take one with you as you head off to your cruise, tennis match, volleyball tournament or golf course.

Product Details
Classic styling with AquaTrans® elastic band for fast moisture transfer and a comfortable fit
Quick drying Coolmax® fabric shell
CoolMax® terry headband keeps the perspiration out of your eyes
#1 selling custom visor style in the line; both embroidery and heat transfer. "

I was really excited to try out both. As a novice runner and simple and easy person by nature I found both the Topless and the SuperVisor to be great products and thus far have found nothing to complain about. They are machine washable (yay!), Very light and comfortable wear, come with an elasticized back so there is no need to adjust a stap. They are available in multiple colors. I felt cool and dry during my runs (it was nice to not have to worry about sweat dripping into my eyes or glasses.) I would definitely recommend Headsweats to anyone who asked.
