ExOfficio Sol Cool Headband

user rating: 3.5 of 5 (1 review)

This thing actually works to keep you cooler and it also stops sweat from dripping into your eyes. Not sure how it works, but if you are hot this will help keep you cooler.

Reasons to Buy

  • comfortable without being too tight

Let me first state that I do not like wearing a headband. Never did. Doubt I ever will. So with that bias out of the way, I'd like to talk about a new headband that is very different than those terry cloth headbands that can be had for a couple of bucks. This was a $12 piece of fabric with a promise. Not sure exactly what the material is, but I'm guessing it's spandex or supplex or some similar combination. Its soft, smooth and stretchy and generally very comfortable against your skin. The material is also, somehow, infused with the chemical Xylitol, which is a mint like flavoring used in some brands of breath freshening gums and breath mints.
