Sweating while playing hockey is, of course, very common. Often times, that sweat on your head can drip down and eventually make it into your eyes. Once it gets there, it’s not necessarily easy to get rid of and can be quite a distraction. This is something I experienced just last week playing a pick up game of roller hockey, and the sweat burned my eyes and caused problems for nearly the entire skate.
Apparently I’m not the only one who has run into this issue, because there’s a hockey specific headband out there called AngryBrow. The AngryBrow is essentially a sweatband designed for hockey helmets with cages.
According to the creators, the AngryBrow is made from a comfortable, durable, machine washable and moisture wicking material created with a hydrophilic fiber surface and a hydrophobic core. This combination is designed to move moisture away from the skin and towards outer layers, without soaking the headband.
The sweatband will easily attach to any cage on a hockey helmet. Once attached properly, the sweatband presses against your forehead and eliminates the problem of dripping sweat.
The AngryBrow hockey sweatband is currently available at the AngryBrow website for $17.99. The company has been kind enough to send us a sample to review, and we will be sure to post our thoughts on the product after testing it.
