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.

      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….

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

Or the top ten reasons to use those thingy’s that clip on you boot lace and your jeans to keep them from riding up…oh wait…did I spoil that one? oh!
