Best sweat band for hot weather

In Atlanta, the temp has been in the 90's for months and the humidity is up there too. I perspire like crazy, and a cloth sweatband lasts about 20 minutes and it is soaked, and then the sweat just runs into my eyes. I bought one of these Sweat Gutr's last fall, and this summer i have used it every time I ride. No more soggy sweatbands, you put this thing on, and the sweat does not run in your eyes or down your face. It is the greatest. An occasional rinse under water, and it stays clean. Well worth the money and should last forever. You don't even notice it is on. http://www.sweatgutr.com/home.html

  • Thanks for the heads up. I really drip like a faucet when doing anything out in the georgia heat. Just ordered one.
  • The opposite problem here. At 4-7% average humidity this summer, there's only evaporation, not perspiration!

  • This is something important to note!
    In most circumstances, when you ride, the air movement will evaporate most perspiration so it may appear that you are not perspiring. This can be very deceiving.

    Everyone please be sure to DRINK lots of beverage while riding. When you get dehydrated the first symptom is you lose energy!

    WATER _ WATER_ WATER!!

  • I swore I'd never wear one, but I sweat from my head so bad, I can't see through my glasses! So I got this from Amazon. Fits big heads, ties in the back, and it really works nice (keeps the bugs off my head too). Only $15 bucks (color choices too)

    The "Raisin Effect." This is the danger in riding in the heat in the desert. You *don't* sweat the same way you would if you were in a place that had higher humidity. The sweat just evaporates. Hydration is doubly important here.

    When my second ex-husband's daughter came to live with us from Oregon (many years ago), she didn't drink water because she wasn't thirsty. When she fainted in the grocery store, that took care of it. Nothing like a 16-year-old's embarrassment to get a good habit started. She didn't realize that the dry environment was sucking water out of her body without her knowledge. Think Arrakis http://dune.wikia.com/wiki/Arrakis.

  • Any kind of cloth head covering or cloth sweatband on me, turns into a soggy mess in about 15 minutes.
  • The material (I don't know what it is) doesn't do that with me. Maybe it is air-drying while riding? I don't know - but even on long rides it's wonderful, and comfortable.

    Peter, are you wearing this alone or under a helmet?

  • Seriously, When I was riding my DF I wore my helmet always. On the Rover, I wear the helmet depending on what I am doing. On Mups I usually do not. If on the street, I always will.

    I am a slow mover, and on my usual ride, my average speed is 7mph - shrug, just don't feel the need at those times.
