    Headband?

    I'm looking for more headbands. It's very windy here, and I like to have my ears covered.

    I have some old Pearl Izumi "Microsensor" headbands, and they're perfect, except that they're out of production.

    I have one Halo "Anti-Freeze" headband. It's too thick, though it'll be nice when it's really cold.

    I could buy new PI "Barrier" headbands, but I'm balking at paying $15 for a thin loop of lycra...

    Has anybody tried the PricePoint headbands?

    Other suggestions?

    I don't have that Price Point headband so I can't help you there, but I do have a headband that's made by Nike (or maybe Under Armour, but I'm pretty sure it was Nike) that looks virtually identical to that Pearl Izumi headband. It was made for running, so look in a shop that caters to runners.

    May not work for you, but I use things like the Buff headwear (I have some Buff brand and then an off brand I found on Amazon for much less). They block some wind when it's cooler, and I can pull them down over my ears. But I wouldn't call them warming, exactly.

    When it's warm, they soak up a lot of sweat (better than the headbands I have). I have very short hair, and always ride with something, almost always a Buff, though sometimes I still use one of the Halos, et al, I still have.

    Thanks, guys. I'm not interested in warming as much as wind-proofing.

    I might just buy some of the cotton/spandex hairbands that are designed for women to keep their hair out of their faces... I'm a man and keep my hair clipped very short, but they might work to cover my ears, anyway.

    I was looking at jerseys and happened across this ear cover by Louis Garneau. It looks similar to the Pearl Izumi headband.
