HEADSWEATS, I Am Done With Your Visor Products

My terrible experience with Velocity Visors from HEADSWEATS

I'm not sure about you, but lately trying to find a decent visor made by the headsweats brand is becoming a thing of the past.  At least for me.

Some years ago I had purchased an adjustable band headsweats visor and it's been awesome.  But as the years roll on, I know that sooner or later, I'll need to buy a replacement for it.  So I started to prepare.

About a year ago I purchased a Velocity Visor from Headsweats with an adjustable headband, but it was terrible.  The front of the visor that in most other visors presses against the front of your head, (the cloth band over the visor bill itself.) was standing straight up.  No contouring what-so-ever. My fashion sense was destroyed! And since the cloth material was standing straight up, the effectiveness of the product to absorb sweat was pretty much nullified.

I then tried a visor with an elastic band.  But (for me), again, this product failed miserably.

It turned out that the elastic band would stretch out pretty fast, making the visor useless within a few months (at most) of purchase.  That's bull(whoops!).

Recently I thought, "Hey, maybe that one Velocity Visor was a fluke.  Let's try another one."  So stupidly, I did.  (Can you tell where this last test went?)

Again, the cloth material that should sit on my forehead, stood straight up, leaving my scalp to freely sweat down onto the band part of the hat, which in and of itself, failed me.

Between the velocity visor not fitting properly and their regular visor bands stretching out too quickly, I can't see myself snagging another visor from this company that has already milked my wallet of nearly $40 of failed product.

Yes, the sweatbands are still viable, but with this latest consumer experience, I'm done and looking elsewhere to send my money because the Headsweats brand has lost my faith.  But that's just me.
