Castelli Summer Headband $19.95
Sweat is great, unless it's in your eyes.
None of us want sweat dripping in our eyes. But none of us want to wear head gear that will leave a deep indentation circling our heads after a long, hot ride, either. The Castelli Summer Headband is so soft against your forehead, that you won't even remember you are wearing it. It has a non-aggressive hold that will prevent any potential indentations. The poly fabric is tailor made to wick sweat away from your forehead, keeping it out of your eyes.
The Castelli Summer Headband has a Uni Size, which means that it will fit you unless you have a head the size of a newborn baby or a rhino. It comes in Black/White, so will surely match all your other Castelli items.

Wicks w the best of them.

I read the reviews before ordering two of these sweatbands, one in each color. Unlike some of the other reviews, I liked this band in terms of performance. I had no sweat in my eyes whatsoever. The band was soaking wet upon completion of my ride, so it did it's job. In terms of comfort, I found it a bit snug an scratchy, but I have a lot of hair. I guess I am spoiled by the soft winter castelli headbands. I am Keeping both of them and overall they work as stated. They get 3 stars for their tight scratchy fit, but I would give them 5 stars for their wicking ability.
Over Priced - under performer

I do like the thinness of this headband, but it does not perform as described. On hot summer days the head band does not prevent sweat going in your eyes. There are cheaper options that perform just as well.
An OK headband. Slim, so it fits beneath my helmet. But it doesn't absorb as much sweat as others, like the Halo sweatbands, and so sweat eventually drips in your eyes.
