If you’ve read my blog for awhile, you may already know that I love Bondi Band’s moisture-wicking headbands. When the weather got cold, though, I knew I needed something that would keep me warmer while still offering those great sweat-wicking properties.
Enter: Bondi Band hats!
Bondi Band offers a wide variety of moisture-wicking hats for men and women, both plain and with logos that make you laugh or allow you to show off your running distance accomplishments.
In addition to their regular hats, they also offer ponytail and pigtail hats. Since I always wear my hair in a ponytail, I chose a ponytail hat featuring my longest accomplished running distance to date.
My only disappointment was that it came in a rather ugly beige…I thought I was getting it in black, but apparently that’s not offered in black anymore. *sigh*
That was my only disappointment, though. I love everything else about my hat. I wore it in the 10K I ran in early December. I was surprised, when it took it off, how wet it was. I didn’t even realize I’d sweated that much. The hat never felt damp during my run and it kept my head and ears warm without being hot.
I wish I had a photo of me wearing it in the run, but that was the race in which my personal photographer husband and the kids did the family fun walk and he didn’t want to have to keep up with the camera.
My second favorite feature of the hat is the way the opening for the ponytail is made. So many skull caps have their ponytail openings near the base of the cap. That doesn’t work too well for someone like me with medium-length hair. I have to wear my ponytail up high on my head if there is to be any hope of the hair at the front of my head actually staying in the ponytail.
The ponytail opening on the Bondi Band hats runs down the back seam of the hat, so, no matter where you wear your ponytail, the opening is in the right spot.
And, the way it overlaps means that the cap is still covering your head and keeping it warm, even though it’s not completely closed in the back.
I love it! My Bondi Band hat is definitely going to become a staple in my cold-weather running wardrobe.
Do or do not. There is no try.
