Like my frames.. I need about a 60cm in a hat size. :(

I avoid the traditional cycling caps because they just look like a wet beer coaster on my skon.


I'm a large 56cm+ and the sweatband one fits easy with plenty of stretch left in it. Pretty sure it'd stretch to 60cm okay.

I got a Halo Super Wide and a Halo II first time around. I found that the wider one kept the sweat out better, so ordered two of the Super Wide this time.

I didn't try the Halo bandana as even the relatively thin torpedo7 bandana I had previously I felt a tad warm up top at times.

Cheers,
Simon.

I use the headband that you can tie off at the back and have a size 59 head, yep head on me like a cabbage!

I love the Halo and have two, not having eyebrows (yep seriously virtually no eyebrows) the Halo's are a god send. Keeps the sweat out of the eyes and better still off the inside of your glasses

I take a 63 in proper hats and the stretchy halo fits ok. I thought it was a bit tight when I first got it but after wearing it a few times it feels ok.

On saying that the next one I buy will probably be the Velcro one just to compare it.

Too bad you can't simply offer a special for BNA members. I'd like one but I may not be able to get to my computer on the 26th in time.

$149 versus $339 at Highly Tuned Athletes. That is some discount. Makes me wonder what the catch is.

True, so be sure to read the fine print carefully! I think there'll be very limited stocks, designed to draw people to the site and buy other stuff.

Limited stock
Site will get a lot of hits and may crash
1st come 1st served
A new deal every 30 mins until they have run their cycle of 24 items. Site crashing tho may see it extended

Noticed the other day when I was doing an Amazon order that they've mistakenly marked the Contour Roam2 in Green as available for shipping overseas:
http://www.amazon.com/Contour-ROAM2-Wat ... B009CN8VNY

$199, comes out to be around $208 shipped.

Gotta be a mistake, because every single other Contour camera on the site is US shipping only. But it does work, mine just shipped yesterday. I suppose it could just be that nobody likes green, so they're got extra stock and are allowing overseas shipping, but I doubt it.
