These sweatbands are more stylish than effective. If you are like me and sweat buckets from your head, these headbands will not do. The first thing I noticed when I opened them was that they are thin compared to the sweatbands I typically find in sports department stores. When I used them, I found that they absorbed but sweat was dripping from my head. I took it of to investigate and found that only parts of the sweatband were wet. With the thicker sweatbands I have used, no matter what part of my head was generating the sweat, the sweatband would distribute the wetness to the dry parts of the sweatband allowing it to absorb more overall.
My advice is, if you want these for the look, or if you don't sweat that much then they will likely suit you. If you are a heavy head sweater and you wear these for functionality first, choose something thicker.
It's a cliche to say that I sweat like a pig when I exercise. It also understates the problem by quite a bit. I'm also a big guy with a big hat size. Add those things together and I'm constantly wearing out sweat bands as the elastic gives up to the salt and stress from trying to soak up what I put out on long bike rides.
What makes it really annoying is that buying replacement head bands on Amazon can be a real hit-or-miss process - I can never be sure if I'm going to get a product that will suck up the sweat or some decorative thing meant to hold a lady's hair in yoga class.
That was not a problem with these - I bought 2 blue, 2 red and 2 black and they are all thick, absorbent and stretch to fit my fat head. Perfect. I'm going to re-post this review for each color I ordered. ;-)
I read previous reviews of this product that had less than great experience, but whether the product was just a better batch or the company improved the product, I have had a great experience. One issue others had was chemical odor, I had none (and my wife's nose is sensitive). A second issue was they did not absorb well, they sure do for me. I do an elliptical for 30 minutes and it absorbs plenty of sweat (my shirt is soaked). It fits well and does its job. And at a great price. I am very happy with this purchase.
