Buff Visor.

The popular headband company that wanted to make a hat with the addition of a totally useless neoprene visor that double-acts as a sweat absorber if you flip it against your forehead until you get a headache or pass out from the smell of neoprene.

And that is why I ripped it off.

Much better now!

The length is now just over 50cm.

The Coolmax fabric ensures wicking, but this particular headband is too hot compared to my other generic one.

It offers 95% UV protection and some cool graphics.

The visor is too short to provide any substantial cover under the sun and therefore is useless. My advice is to get a classic Buff and save some bucks in the process.

Thanks for the review, Nick. While I like Buffs, I admit I'm finding this one odd.

What a goofy idea. I'll stick to my Trailspace hat for hiking!
