Alright folks, it's officially here-
Are you excited? You should be!
Firstly, let me tell you a bit about Bondi Band. Bondi Bands are sweat-wicking headbands, hats/caps, etc for athletic people of all shapes, sizes and ages. To quote them directly, "The simple premise of Bondi Bands is to offer comfy, colorful, and creative headbands to fit every lifestyle and personality. By using stretchy and breathable material, we allow Bondi Bands to fit virtually every head size comfortably and fashionably." I was originally intrigued by Bondi Bands after reading about them on various blogs. Every review I read was the same, Bondi Bands rocked! So, I decided it was time to try them for myself.
I have very long hair and keeping it out of my face is always an issue, especially when running. So far I've been using bandanas, but they have to pinned to my head otherwise the wind will take them away and the pins tend to dig into my scalp while running. Also, while bandanas are stylish and cheap, they do not wick away my sweat and that's a big downfall. Trying to wipe the river of sweat out of my eyes is super attractive when running down the street.
When I got my tax refund, I purchased two Bondi Bands. One, the pink whirly HERE and the other, Keep Running HERE. The pink whirly one is made of Lycra material, which dries fas and lightly wicks sweat. It is light and breathes very nice, I wore it all around the house last night and it never once moved out of place. The Lycra bands come in dozens of fun colors and patterns. There is definitely something for everyone to wear!
The Keep Running Bondi Band is a heavier sweat-wicking headband that is "comprised of high-tech polyester," that draws the sweat away from the body, "pushing to the outside of the fabric, where it evaporates away... leaving you dry". The heavier bands come in multiple colors and with various sayings/logos/etc. (They even have some that you can customize with your own logo/saying!) This is the one I wore for my 4.3 mile run today.
Honestly, I forgot I was wearing it for most of the run. It was very light and it never moved out of place. Around mile three, when I wondered why I had yet to wipe sweat out of my eyes, I finally remembered I had it on my head. The Bondi Band was fantastic! During the entire run I did not have a drop of sweat run down my head, into my eyes, anything! (And believe me, I was a hot, sweaty mess after this run!) Not only did it keep the sweat from my face, it kept my hair out of the way as well. And I looked stylish the whole time I was running. PERFECT! What more could I ask for?!
