My experience with the product has been positive. The first ride (4hrs) was epic as the weather went from sunny and hot to stormy with a temperature drop. As I expected the sweat was absorbed and did not roll on to my face or glasses during the hot part of the ride but what I hadn’t thought of was how this product could keep me warmer and comfortable when needed. It soaked up the rain water and insulated against the wind and cold as we finished up in the dark. I was/am very impressed and continue to use it.

A buddy gave me a sweathawg in the spring but weather had not been that warm yet to truly get a feel for it. I just spent 10 days mountain biking in Sedona with temperatures over 100 almost everyday. This was a true test for what the sweathawg could do, and it passed with flying colors. Sweat combined with sunscreen always make my eyes sore after hot rides but this did not happen once while using the sweathawg. After ridiculously hot uphills on baking red rock I could feel myself pouring out with sweat but it never hit my eyes. Amazing!!
I was nearly blinded by salty sweat in my right eye on several occasions. My wife saw SWEATHAWG at The Granary in State College and the problem is gone.

I will admit to being skeptical at first, even though I have always been a cyclist with the problem of sweat getting in my eyes. In fact, I rarely wore sunglasses when cycling because when I did, the sweat issue was even worse
SweatHawg has effectively ended my problems and I am able to wear my sunglasses again. The product is easy to use and stays right where I put it under my helmet. But most importantly, the thing soaks up sweat like a super sponge. In many, many hours of riding, including some very warm rides up local mountain passes, I have had no problems with sweat in my eyes. None! My skepticism about the product has been replaced by awe. I am a convert! This is a great product. In Spring and Fall it also provides some warmth on cool days. Thanks!
I don’t notice when I have the SWEATHAWG on- I notice when I don’t because I can’t see out of my sunglasses- not the case when I have the SWEATHAWG on-SWEET product-
My first few attempts at your fine product left me a little wanting in terms of orientation on my head/helmet without velcro or straps. So, if you can get people over that initial hurdle of not being secured on the head or secured in the helmet, it’s all good. I really am enjoying it…the more I play with it, the more I like it. I wore it in the OBRA TTT yesterday under my TT helmet. Nothing got in my eyes. Amazing. I am now hooked.
My friend gave me a SweatHawg from my visit to Bend last weekend, and let me tell you, I’ve tried many fix-it’s for sweat in the eyes during long rides, and this is the absolute best solution I’ve found. You guys rock!
I handed a prototype off to a friend months ago, lifelong cyclist and ex-racer. This is a guy who quit riding with his prescription glasses because they got so smeared with sweat. When I saw him last week he confessed to initial skepticism, but now happily rides once again with his glasses! No drips, even on a training day that included three trips up McKenzie Pass. He is in “don’t leave home without it” mode.
Longest serving beta tester Peter B is totally in “don’t leave home without it” mode. He not only uses his SweatHawg while cycling, but also in his ski helmet and under his baseball cap. Hey, if it works do it all the time!
