5. They Make Great Snot Rags

Bandana Mask

If at any point during your ride you begin drooling or your nose starts running, the bandana provides a first line of defense between bodily fluids and your chin, followed by your Ralph Lauren silk dickie. When you’re laid up with a cold, a couple of bandanas has the snot-absorbing capacity of an entire box of Kleenexes. (Remember to launder them before redonning, or forget #2.)

    Nothing more frustrating than these 10-page articles, where I have to load a new page and scroll down each time for all ten points.

    Is this about driving up clicks or something?

    Please stop doing it.

      Yes…super annoying. It must be about clicks.

    • loloyd

      Frustrating or annoying? Or both? :-P

      No reason you can’t sport the bandana with a full-face, I nearly always do.

        This is by far the cheapest and most effective anti-fogging on the market.

    Strong language for a bogus little piece that had no reason to be. I guess it’s winter.. slow days, no riding….. It’s so hard to resist telling you what I think of those wearing bandanas….

    • john burns

    @2:Thought it was the other way around.Everytime I see one with a bandana,I identify him (with a scientifically proven score of 98.7% correctness) to be a douchebag:p

  • Andrew Schechterman

    Love the Buff Coolmax bandanas, can vary in price, but cover #1-#10 (have not tried #11). Good stuff.
