Review: Sauce Headwear

At The Running Event I had lots of time to wander around checking out the latest from the running world. From socks to recovery drinks. Shoes to hats.

The absolute best thing I picked up was a headband from Sauce. I was drawn by the colors and the fact that the woman standing in the booth was also clearly the model on the booth display. Shayla Swanson is a professional cross country skier. Who was fed up with itchy, over heating (ugly) headwear in her sport.

Shayla is in the headband. Cindi our Oiselle rep is raving about the headband.

I have been looking for a running headband that's warm but not too hot. I know I sound like Goldilocks or something, but it's annoying to have headwear that ends up wrapped around my wrist after a mile. I thought I'd give the Sauce Headband a spin.

The Sauce Ventilator is the headband I ended up with . It is almost the coverage of a hat with must needed ventilation. Perfect for 25 - 40 degree days. I've run in this every day since getting it, the coldest day was 28, the warmest 42. Never was I cold, never was I itchy or hot. I even raced a 5k in it (hello new PR).

Wicking material inside is serious business

I've washed it once and line dried it, absolutely no issues there. It dried in under 8 hours and was ready the next morning.

I'm so hooked on Sauce (wait, that sounds wrong). Really fabulous product, and a woman run business. A woman who saw a problem and created an awesome solution. Love it.
