    Sweat in the Eyes ... How do YOU stop It?

    I just got back from a long, hot, sweaty ride where I was continually wiping the sweat from my eyes. Does anyone out there have a good method for keeping this from happening?

    Thanks,

    Joe

    1. Don't shave your eyebrows like this guy:


    2. Use a Halo

    I wipe it off with my glove. Sweat gutters work too.

    I've used a sweat gutter in the past, lately I have been just wiping with the glove or letting it drip.

    +1 for the Halo headband.
    Also wash your helmet often.

    yup, head band... got an old cheapo Nasbar one yrs ago as it was 1/2 the price of the halo's and the Sweatvac's works great. I'm not a big fan of Nashbar but I got it as a trial thing, it is getting worn. time or a (few ) new ones. got a skull cap one too which is nice on cool days.

    have also used old cut off legs from sweat pant.. works too

    Halo headbands. Halo bandanas. The best hands down. Over the last couple years I pretty much don't put on a helmet without a halo if some form.

    I've just used bandannas to keep the sweat out of my face and it works pretty well for the most part. I typically change out the bandanna every so often with a new one depending on how many hours I will be riding. My rule is typically 1 bandanna change per hour...

    I use the 1,2 combo of gloves for wiping and sunglasses. Seems to work well for me.
