Great Earband
November 29, 2011

I love this earband. This is the second one I've had (lost the first one). It's light, thin, and most of all, it's the only one I've found that covers my ears and doesn't slip, so no wind gets in. Excellent product.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use

Very nice...if it fits

Excellent construction. Keeps ears and head warm and sweat free on those days were its cold and your doing some hiking. Only issue I can for see is fit for some people. its one size only and not adjustable. A little tight on me, but I have a larger head, and not too the point wear Ill need to return. Usually wear a larger size hat.

very satisfied

Product: the ear-warming band is just what we needed for our hikes. Light weight, simple, comfortable, and practical. Service: It was shipped very quickly and arrived in good order.

Wore this running for the first time on Friday. Loved it! It's the first headband I've had that actually kept my ears warm. I would definitely recommend.

My Big Head
February 21, 2012

Been looking for something for a while to run and ski with that will keep my ears warm and at the same time from me overheating. But the main priority is that it had to be manly! Fits over my big head without being to snug. My new favorite way to ski is with a ball cap and my new OR WindPro Ear Band. Have used on a few runs already and same results. No overheated head and comfy ears. I cant comment on durability, but so far after a half dozen uses still looks new. OR also has a great warranty.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Great value

Ear Head Band
February 21, 2011

Too early to judge on durability and quality but I am hopeful they will prove to be excellent. Great alternative to a winter hat for individuals who dress up and do not want their hair to get messy. I am a big man and it fits fine. Happy with product so far.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, Cons: Cost

Good looking and functional

This keeps your ears warm and your hair in place on windy days. Snug fit without any gaps and soft comfortable fabric - not scratchy. I wish the logo were on the back rather than the center of the forehead otherwise very pleased.

great lightweight wind protection
October 03, 2007

perfect for cool, or windy days. Great for biking because it cut out the wind completely and doesn't get too hot--plus it has a reflective print on the front for added safety on night rides.

Great for all outdoor activities!

I love my Windpro Ear band. I use it running, walking, and for work. I spend a lot of time outside. It's really nice to have an ear band that doesn't impair eye sight or hearing.


OR quality deserves 5 stars

light weight & adjustable.....love it! the only complain is the logo. prefer it on the side, not front.

Great earband for riding
November 08, 2004

This earband is warm,windproof adjustable so there are no gaps,yet I can still comfortably wear my bike helmut over it. No more earaches after the Brooklyn Bridge!

I live in South Dakota where the wind blows 90% of the time and regular earbands and hats don't cut it. This windstopper is great! Keeps the wind out and my ears warm. I use it in near zero temps and will layer a fleece under it when it's really cold. It does muffle sound some (more than regular fleece), but it's worth it to keep the wind out.

Pros: Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
