    Recommendation for do-rag skull cap?

    Not sure what they're called. Something to wick away the sweat / keep it out of the eyes. Recommendation?

    I use the Halo Brand Skull Cap. I personally like the ones that tie in the back, because the others seem too tight with just the elastic. Maybe I have a big head?

    I use the Halo, tie in the back type, and it works great.

    The ultimate in "do-rag skull cap" design.. I have many, and use them on every ride, all seasons.

    FWIW. I have found the halo stuff to be less than pleasant to wear. I use the headsweats cap, and find it rather nice. moves enough sweat that it (usually) doesn't drip in my eyes, and is airy enough I can still feel the wind through the helmet vents.

    This is the guy I use

    Can anyone take you up on that offer RipRoar? I wouldn't mind giving that thing a go, I'm not too in love with the Halo I have. (Its works well but is tight and gives me a headache.)

    I use the Halo headband variety instead of the skull-cap. The gasket above the eye-brow keeps the sweat out of my eyes, but the heat can still escape off the top of my head. The regular Halo band fits me just fine (I have a medium size cranium), but I understand some larger noggins need the tie-back variety. I'm so comfortable with it that I wear it even on cooler days when I'm not climbing much - it helps my helmet fit better. I have 3 of them - I pick one up whenever I see them on sale (usually winter).

    Halo headband and cap work for me as well. If its too hot, you can always stop and ring it out on the trail and keep going! Washes well and seems to be made of great material for the long run. Most credible bike retailers( online or LBS) carry them.

    I use the headband as well. I sweat profusely and need as much ventilation across the top of my head as possible. On warm muggy rides with lots of climbing I can only get about 5 miles between wring-outs, but if I was using something without the forehead gasket I'd have rivers flowing into my eyes constantly.

    I also use the halo headband. Coming from wearing a bandana under my helmet, and its a night and day difference. The rubber gasket works as advertised, and it still allows airflow over the top of your head
