If you really sweat look elsewhere
on July 9, 2012
I tried the Bondi Band while casting about for something better than the Halo band. The 97 degree heat this past weekend was a real test on our local mountain. The Bondi was comfortable, but really does not absorb sweat or channel it (like the Halo or SweatGUTR). I guess if you were doing some light duty stuff or if you don't sweat much this is the cat's meow. The theory of the Bondi, I guess, is that the wicking material allows the air to evaporate the sweat. Good in theory...but in practice, no way. I have a SweatGUTR on order-I will see how it works....
For now, I have found the best thing for me in hot, humid conditions and extreme exertion is the Halo with a standard terry sweatband over top of it. During the 4 hours I was on our local mountain in 97 degree heat recently, all I had to do was wring out the terry band every 45 minutes or so. Actually the combo worked pretty darn good-by far, the best thing I have tried. No more sweat dripping off my nose.
Bottom line....get a Halo. If you sweat a lot, add a conventional sweatband on top. If you want to look cool in Yoga class, get a Bondi.
