    wicking skull cap

    I know it's the wrong time of year to be thinking about it, at least in some parts of the country (though it was 86 here today), but I'm looking for a skull cap to solve two problems.

    First, I sweat excessively and need something to keep the sweat out of my eyes. I have been using a Halo headband which works ok, but I still have to stop and wring it out a few times a ride in the summer heat.

    Second, I keep my hair (what's left of it) very short and tend to get burned on top of my head and want something to help with that. Though I will say I'm not specifically looking for something made specifically to block the sun, sweat management is the main goal.

    Does anyone know of a very light skull cap that will help keep the sweat running down my head without trying to cook my brain?

    Halo makes one. Something that works as well as the halo strip, but doesn't get saturated.... will be pretty damn thick.

    This is what I use. Works perfectly and helps keep me cool as it wicks the sweat away. I also sweat excessively and can't ride without one or my eyes will burn from sweat.

    Buff. Use them at work under a hardhat and for everything outdoors until temps get around freezing and the beanies come out.

    I use a Halo skull cap and another product in combo. Can't think of the name now but it might be something like "Sweatbuster". The "Sweatbuster" is a massive thick pad, you could probably DIY with a maxi-pad, that Velcro in place to the forehead position of your helmet liner. Similar to your experience, I had to wring out the Halo during rides, but adding the "Sweatbuster" solved the sweat problem for me. Do a search for the sweatbuster on MTBR and you will find a thread or two.

    I live in Phoenix and sweat a lot. I used to use several of the products mentioned, but have switched entirely to Sweatbusters. Much, much more effective product though it does nothing to shield your cranium from the sun. I suppose you could use it in conjunction with a skullcap like X Armor or whatever.
    Just like a raindrop, I was born to fall.

    It won't help for sunburn but for sweat, I've found nothing better than the Sweatbuster.
