I just want to start this post by saying I love Bondi Band!!!! I actually love their sweat wicking headbands so much that I had my own custom Bondi Bands made up with my blog logo on it!!! When I was planning my virtual run I reached out to Bondi Band to be a sponsor and they sent me 2 hats, one to review and 1 to giveaway to a participant in my virtual run.
I have a love hate relationship with wearing hats while running, I love to be warm but I hate that after a mile or 2 I am so warm I have to take the hat off and figure out where I am going to put it. Do I hold it? Do I squeeze it in my pocket? Do I just drop it on the side of the road??? I really dislike holding things when I run so this is a dilemma for me.
Enter the Bondi Band hat…..light, sweat wicking, comfortable……would this be the hat that would keep me warm and not overheat me to the point that I have to take it off?? The answer is yes!!!! I wore this hat on the day I ran my virtual run in a frigid 18 degrees, the coldest day I ran outside this year and this hat kept me warm but not too warm. I kept the hat on whole time, even when my hands got overheated from my gloves and I had to take them off, my head remained just the right temperature with my Bondi Band hat in place. This hat met all my expectations and then some but what else did I expect from a great company like Bondi Band, maybe they can make me some gloves…hint, hint!
I even roped my husband into wearing it on his run to see what he thought about the hat and now he asks to wear it every time he goes out for a run…..luckily for me the fabric bounces right back into it’s original shape or else his big head may have made the hat too big for me. I am thinking I am going to need to buy him his own anyway because we can’t both wear it at the same time, so a fight my ensue if we only have one hat when we want to run together!
If you need a great hat that is light and comfortable but still keeps you warm on your cold runs be sure and check out this sweat wicking hat by Bondi Band.
