Sweatband help!JetSpeed

First off, I sweat like a pig! I used to have a few sweatbands from a compnay called JT but, they all wore-
out on me. Where exactly can I buy a really good, thin, coolmax type sweatband? I can't seem to find many out there that meet this criteria. Help me get keep the stinging sweat out of my eyes!

goto any sporting goods store that sells tennis equipment and chances are, you should be able to find at least the sweat wrist bands...maybe also the sweatbands for your head.

They're not coolmax, but I sweat like a pig too and I find that Performance headbands (3-pack for $7.99) do the trick and fit under my helmet well--not too thick.

The last time I ordered from them (sweatbands [not headband] and helmet covers), they didn't have a website....you just have to telephone them and inquire...Prices are pretty good and the Assistant is very courteous. It's amazing that these items were available up to a few years ago, but the geniuses think that sweating was just a phase and stopped manufacturing them ....if you want a 'tie-back' style; try: http://www.sweatshoot.com/ or http://mountainbike.about.com/library/weekly/aapr011502a.htm (available from Excel or Pricepoint)

Love the crap out of mine. Quite durable also. Just throw it in the washer and hang to dry (of course hand washing works fine also).

I think Halo makes a headband with a rubber dam on the lower front edge to keep sweat out of the eyes also. Many people swear by them.

Good luck.

I really like the Halo. The little rubber strip seems to do the trick. http://www.haloheadband.com/

Voler has headbands and what they call koolbands that tie in the back. Try velowear.com and look under accessories. I have tried the performance headbands but they were too tight on my head. I like the headbands that tie so I can adjust how tight they are.

OK here is how to get a nice coolmax sweatband. Im surprised no one had mentioned it so far. Take that old primal wear jersey you never wear and make a sleeveless out of it for really hot days. Then trim down the sleeve so you get a nice headband w/ a big logo in front. then (this is the important part) loop it over your foot and stretch it out so it will fit nice and snug on your head without cutting off your circulation and making you dizzy. Its cheap, its low profile in your helmet, and it matches your new sleeveless jersey.
This might not work however if you have really skinny arms and a fat head. Good luck!

You might try Headsweats coolmax head covers. They're very thin but wick sweat away from you head so it can evaporate. They also help keep you cool and prevent sunburn on your scalp if losing hair. The only time these are less effective are when it's extremely humid. I like the shortie version of the headsweats, rather than the bandanna style that tie in the back -- I'm not crazy about the Marco Pantani look.
