Strengths:    Never saturates. Low profile. Easy to wash. Fully adjustable.

Weaknesses:    Some may find the looks not to their taste

Bottom Line:   
Every now and then I see a product that I am just blown away by. Sweat GUTR is this product! Got mine from www.sweathead.co.uk. I have always had problems with sweat in my eyes while doing long single track rides. Especially hard with sunglasses too. But now that I am using a Sweat GUTR, which nestles underneath my helmet, I no longer have any stinging eyes and a sweat free face.

Simple but effective!

Strengths:    It works! About 90% reduction in sweat-in-the-eyes. Silicone rubber is easy to clean, and dries faster than any of the rest of your gear.

Weaknesses:    I must have a big melon. They use "hair ties" to connect the back of the silicone headband, and I had to tie two together to keep the thing from squeezing my head too tightly.

Bottom Line:   
Best solution on the market for avoiding the dreaded glasses-full-of-sweat on hot midwestern rides.

I also removed the brow pad from the front of my helmet because it would soak up sweat and then dump it all into my glasses whenever I leaned forward. Argh!

The GUTR will work alongwith a regular headband or skullcap (I love the HeadSweats shorty!), but you have to put the GUTR -below- the headband, not over it.

Strengths:    While not perfect, it's a better solution than skull caps/headbands which are useless when soaked

Weaknesses:    Takes some getting used to

Bottom Line:   
I was somewhat skeptical of this thing when I ordered it, but I'm willing to try anything to keep sweat out of my eyes. After using it for several 90+ degree rides, it does work better than other headbands. There are times when sweat does get around it and into my eyes, but it does work better than anything else I've tried and is the same price or cheaper then other headbands.

Strengths:    It is a good product for me, since I tend to sweat a lot on my forehead. I used to try other cotton sweat bands but it was not use. So far I cannot complain...

Weaknesses:    sometimes I have to pay attention how I put on my helmet

Bottom Line:   
For guy like me who sweats a lot it is good solution, hope will last me a while; plus it is not very expensive one

Submitted by Paul Buss a Weekend Warrior from Dallas, TX USA

Date Reviewed: February 27, 2006

Strengths:    I tend to sweat a lot when riding and unless there is a strong wind it's in my eyes a lot. I habitually use my gloves to clear it until I started wearing this product. Keeps the flow of the sweat away from my eyes and to the side or above my ears.

Weaknesses:    You have to adjust your routine a bit when you put your helmet on to insure it's wear you want it and comfortable.

Bottom Line:   
If you sweat and ride, you need one of these on your head.

Lost: Blue Halo Headband in Demo Forrest

Stanky, sweaty, blue unit lost on the climb out from Braile. If anyone was brave enough to pick it up I'd appreciate getting it back. Thanks.Read More »

Best headband for the Front Range?

My 2 cent 400L headband review

Got the headband for my 400L, it's comfy and adjustable, overpriced at $20 but they're not mass producing these things. Using the 400L for night walking the dogs is incredibly overkill. But now I blind the hell out of fellow walkers, attacking dogs, vampires, guerrillas, my neighbor, whatever I come ... Read More »

Headband Mounted Lights: Anyone Try for Riding?

On the market now are these newer headband mounted lights. One in particular has a three-watt LED that will last for 140 hours on AAA batteries. Anyone ever try these for riding? Or do these bulbs burn out too fast for night riding. They seem pretty good otherwise, waterproof and it looks like y ... Read More »
