HeadSweats (HERE) Perspiration Technology Headwear® was founded in the winter of 1998 by shoe industry veteran and obsessed cyclist, Alan Romick. Frustrated by the perils of heavy sweat blindness, migrating sunscreen, and odd sunburn pattern on his head through his helmet, he set out to develop headgear that worked. Encouraged by the constant feedback within the local cycling community, he took the best attributes of what was available and improved on them. Starting with one product -- The Cotton Classic -- available at first in just four colors, Alan’s products quietly became elite athlete’s secret weapon around the world, eventually expanding to over 17 different products available in over 140 different colors and styles.
After appearing on a Tour de France rider on the front of the the New York Times sports section, that secret weapon became an open secret and soon Headsweats were running in and winning Ironman Kona, The Head of the Charles Regatta, countless marathons and bike races around the world. With well over a million hats delivered, Headsweats now has more triathlon finishers and podiums than any other headwear company.
Today the Headsweats line includes washable, airlight, supremely wicking hats that now dominate the triathlon, rowing, adventure racing worlds. The success and a spirit of innovation at Headsweats, along with unsurpassed customer service, helped to establish Headsweats as the front runner in a very competitive cycling category. Alan continues to work relentlessly to bring the most cutting-edge, advanced and fun headwear products to new markets for construction workers, chefs, police forces, snow-boarders, and marathoners alike.
I received the HeadSweats GO Hat (HERE) in pink/white and loved it. The sun has been shining a bit lately and it was nice to get it out of my eyes -- as much as I DO LOVE my Bondi Bands! It's also great to pop on my head when I don't feel like doing my hair when the kiddos and I head to the park!! During my six miler with the Little Dude, it kept the sun out of my eyes, my hair out of my face (from the crazy wind) and kept my head cool. The terry sweat band kept my head cool, the hat in place and wasn't too tight. I hate wearing hats sometimes, because it gives me a headache from squeezing my pressure points. I didn't experience this with the Go Hat. It was cool and comfortable. Only downfall I can see as the white could get dirty pretty fast with as much of a sweaty-betty I am! And those of us that run with makeup on can cause a bit more of a problem with a white hat and the washing machine!! But, performance-wise it was perfect and I loved having the opportunity to try it out.
Available in womens sizing and in 5 female-friendly color combinations, the GO Hat is sold for $22.
