Bondi Band Review and Giveaway

Thursday, August 14, 2014
So this post is better late than never. This is what happens when email communications are sucked up by gremlins or eaten by spam filters. Now let's talk headbands!

As a runner and a gym rat with long hair, head bands are a must. The moment that any hair falls in my face I'm annoyed. I am regularly trying new options for keeping my hair back, so the opportunity to give bondi bands a try was a perfect fit for me.

Bondi bands advertises their headband line as being "No Slip. No Drip. Athletic Headwear." Sounds like a perfect fit for me. My first impression of the head band is that it is very light weight and yet wider than I am accustomed to in a headband. Normally when I go for something that covers up a large amount of my head, I shoot for my bandanna. Despite the width, it fit well and was incredibly comfortable. One feature I like is that it is bunched at the back so it doesn't roll funny at the back of your neck. I don't know if that bothers you, but it drives me nuts.
 
Armed with a bondi band, I went out for a run at the park to give it a shot on a short four mile run. Through the run, the band did shift a little but not so much that it slipped off. That is a plus in my book. As far as "No Drip," well sweat still went in my eyes - I sweat A LOT - but it was reduced.  I did try pulling the band down a little further, which helped, but did not eliminate the issue.

Would I personally buy these bands? Yes. Maybe not the ones with the text on them but a solid color or a cute patter, definitely.

So how about a little info on the company, bondi band.

Bondi Bands are great for women, men, girls and boys! Bondi Bands are composed of a unique blend of nylon, lycra, and spandex. The result is a stretchy yet form fitting band that holds up under the toughest hair styles and types.
Charity:

We are a simple company with a dedication and belief in our product. Our philosophy is to make a great product at a great price and to build relationships one at a time. And as much as we believe in making a tidy profit we also believe in giving back. Each year we donate 10% of our pretax profits to charity. For 2009 we have chosen the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

Dana-Farber Cancer Institute:

Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI) is a Comprehensive Cancer Center designated by the National Cancer Institute. It is a major affiliate of Harvard Medical School and is located in Boston, Massachusetts.
The origins of DFCI date back to 1947. DFCI employs about 3,000 people. Most importantly, there are more than 150,000 patient visits a year, and it is involved in some 200 clinical trials. It is internationally known for its research and clinical excellence.

We figured if we were going to give away some money, this should be where it goes to.
