Headbands are a fashionable heat-retention item that can be worn around the head in the snow. They are meant to protect against some of nature’s harshest cold weather conditions, keeping the ears and forehead warm with a good layer of fabric insulation that isn’t too cumbersome.
Headbands come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and can be reversible to absorb heat and provide different types of protection. They are often circular in shape, and do not cover the head completely like a beanie or snow cap would. They are not woolen like a sweat headband, but instead they are constructed of a nylon fabric that is flexible, stretchy, durable, and breathable without causing the wearer to sweat too much.
Headbands are great for lightweight snow play. The Mons Royale Revy Reversible Headband is a sporty item that can be worn in two ways, and easily fits under the helmet to provide a layer of warmth without being too visible.
There are perspiration-absorbing materials available for these headbands as well. You don’t have to worry about sweating or causing your headband to smell, as they can be worn all day for maximum comfort and protection while adding an extra layer underneath your other snow gear.
