Default Summer in Oklahoma - Headband recommendations?

So I sweat in the summer....a lot. Have always just worn a ballcap that gets drenched. Incorporated a small towel under the hat yesterday and it helped.

Any headband, doo-rag recommendations out there?

I used to wear one of these for tennis. It works great. There is a strip of neoprene on the underside that ports the sweat from your brow out to your temples, which helps keep it out of your eyes. They are durable, too.

I use for running in the winter when not that cold out a band I see people use in the summer, BondiBand. https://bondiband.com/ They also make nod just the headbands like I wear but they have now visors too. However when running in summer I wear a Visor that Nike makes for Tennis but is general sport enough, saw USA Beach Volleyball payers wearing them during last Olympics. Also have a Sports hat From Bay Six that has a bath/beach towel like martial for the inner liner thing for the hat.

I work outside in MO. The headbands I've tried all seem to hold the heat as well as the hold the sweat. After trying many commercial headbands I use an old fashioned cotton cowboy bandana. I fold it rather wide (Apache style as my sweetie says) to maximize the surface area.

I wear wicking ball caps, or boonies (lots of them are available, the former is pretty common for running). I'll wear a halo on a bike, but that's really about it.

I sweat like crazy too. I've had good luck with the aforementioned Halo headbands.

Lately though, I've been using a Buff (or knock offs) and fold it down into about a headband size. To me, it seems to hold a lot more sweat and manages it better than even a Halo. There's 3 packs on Amazon from a brand called Renegade I think for about 10 to 15 bucks and they work as good as the Buff branded ones that are 15 to 20 for a single one.

I love my wool Buff (the synthetic ones are't as good). It's an essential part of my winter DG gear. The knotted double-fold keeps my head warmer than anything else I've found. Never thought of wearing it as a sweatband! I've only used the actual Buff brand, so nice to know the knock-offs are just as good, for when I need a new one. Thanks!

Interesting. I've only ever used the lightweight synthetic ones, mostly as headbands. They worked awesome as a face shield last month when hiking Great Sand Dunes when it was windy as hell. Sometimes I'll soak them in ice water then wear it around my neck if it's crazy hot.

As someone who sweats a ton, I've never had much luck with any type of headband. My hats get soaked, thin bandanas get drenched quickly, and thicker ones just retain even more heat. If its toasty out, I just bring along a nice absorbent towel/rag (just dont mix it up with your disc towel)
