Reviewed in the United States on July 26, 2018
I was looking for a visor to fulfill two requirements: 1.) Block sunlight from hitting my face and 2.) Absorb some forehead sweat while I’m running. I went for an inexpensive visor because I don’t really care how it looks, I just want to keep my face protected and keep sweat out of my eyes.

Surprisingly, this visor let me down on both of those requirements. You might say “How can a visor not block sunlight?” Well… I don’t have any idea either. I ordered white because I frequently go on long runs in prolonged sunlight so I thought white would keep the heat down and keep me cooler, but maybe the fabric is just a bit too translucent. When I first noticed light coming through the visor part, I thought it was light being reflected from below, because I thought the visor was made of cardboard or something impenetrable to light. Is it made of cardboard? At least some light comes right through the visor, defeating my number one purpose of blocking as much sunlight as possible on my face. I usually wear 100 SPF sunscreen on my face as well as sunglasses when it’s sunny, so I’m hopefully not doing damage wearing this, but I have to say this was a big let down for me. I haven’t “measured” the amount of light that comes through, I’m sure it’s less than 25% of what hits the top of the visor, but ridiculous that it is even happening at all.

My second requirement was that it absorbs sweat and keeps it out of my eyes. Sweat dripping in my eyes burns, and so far I have one Nike visor that absorbs sweat very well, my usual go to on hot days, as well as several baseball caps that I like to wear running, but in the middle of a hot summer just don’t keep the sweat out of my eyes (which can ruin a run!). This visor was advertised as having a sweatband and “100% polyester wicking fabric technology”, but so far has completely failed me on the sweat wicking. After a couple runs on moderately hot days (75-80 degree weather), this visor left me with sweat dripping in my eyes, compared to my old Nike visor which keeps my eyes from burning even in the mid 90s.

Any positives? It fits well, I like the white color, and so far it has not had any stains/color changes from sweat (although I suspect that is because it’s not adequately wicking my sweat away). I know this is an inexpensive visor choice, I just wish it fulfilled my minimum requirements of blocking light and wicking away sweat.
