I usually wear a headband to keep my hair off my face and sweat out of my eyes when I run, but I recently tried the Headsweats Race Hat, and it’s now my headgear of choice. In sweltering Florida, I appreciate that it keeps the sun off my face. But what I really like: the CoolMax terry headband wicks the sweat off my skin and dries t hree to four times faster than cotton. And it features a nice touch for women: the adjustable backband is designed to fit a ponytail. And it’s only 20 bucks. What’s not to love?
Check out the Headsweats hat and other great summertime apparel and accessories in “Beach Bound” in the upcoming July/August issue of Women’s Running.
