Halo headband was recommended by a friend on my competitive riding team. He sweats like a pig - enough that if I'm drafting off him my cycling glasses are totally blurry after 10 miles. Asked him how he prevents 'eye burn', the feeling you get on a hot day of cycling when sweat is just pouring into your eyes, and he recommended Halo.
Picked up this adjustable version at REI, and put it to the test this weekend on an 80 mile ride (3:45:08 time!) with the team. Wasn't too hot, so wasn't a real stress test. But I can attest to the fact that not a drop of sweat passed the 'seal' to fall into my eyes. Good enough for me, works as advertised.
Happy to recommend this to others.
Works pretty well
This thing works pretty well. It was a little tight, but I have a pretty big melon. It stays in place very well and absorbs sweat. I never had a problem with sweat in my eyes and I set a PR the first time that I wore it. While it was not responsible for my PR, I know that I was sweating because I was toast after the ride...so it obviously did it's job. I would recommend.
Got sick of sweat burning up my eyes. Gave this one a try and it's been awesome. I have virtually no problems anymore. One of my teammates tried this one as well and was equally happy. Won't ride without it now.
